The Mainstay is a charmingly restored guest house in the heart of old Historic Southampton Village.

Elizabeth Main has owned this charming Southampton bed and breakfast for more than 10 years. She has lovingly restored and decorated the l870 house with the intent of recapturing the easy, elegance that typified Southampton.

The house is situated on a private acre on historic Hill Street within walking and biking distance of the ocean the bay and the world famous Shinnecock Golf Course and National Golf Links as well as the heart of Southampton Village.

All rooms are individually furnished with antique iron beds, country pine and Southampton treasures.

A lovely master suite with king bed, fireplace and TV is always the first choice on guests list of rooms to stay in.

The gracious Master Suite (pictured above) has a king-sized bed, fireplace, TV, A/C and an antique clawfoot tub in its private bath. With its windows on three sides overlooking the gardens, it is always the first choice of our guests. Most of our rooms have windows overlooking the gardens or historical, tree-lined Hill Street in the Hamptons. Each room uniquely features either a gabled ceiling, or skylights, faux - painted walls, clawfoot tubs and vintage linens. All are updated with modern additions of TV, fans or A/C. We can accommodate families in our larger rooms or suites; all other rooms are double occupancy.

Breakfast with the Windsors
Country china lies within easy reach in an early nineteenth century Irish pine hutch. At breakfast, guests are greeted by the Mainstay's own garden roses, on a pine table surrounded by Windsor chairs.

While Southampton is a renowned, international summer resort, fall and winter are equally exciting. Crisp air, glorious foliage, ocean walks, beautiful pristine beaches, hayrides, winery tours, wild life refuges, and a famous film festival are on the calendar. History is everywhere in Southampton which was the first incorporated settlement in New York state (l640). Along with palatial estates there are colonial homes and buildings on the National Historic Registry. Chic shopping, galleries, a distinguished art museum, four star restaurants and seven miles of pristine beach (in the Village alone) provides a sophisticated year-round getaway.

Mainstay has been featured inGood Housekeeping's June, 2001 subscription issue and ON THE JITNEY magazine issue , today the country home is used as a summer house for extended families during the season as well as still inviting guest on occasion for off season with limited availability.

The property is located on an acre and includes a 2Ox4O inground black lined pool.

The grounds are filled with flowers and give one the feeling of restfulness and country life.
