A favourite holiday spot for affluent New Yorkers, The Hamptons offers picturesque villages, beautiful beaches and a wide variety of shops, restaurants, museums and places of interest. The White Fences Inn is a luxury B&B set in a charming timber house typical of the area and is ideally located for exploring this sought after destination. To travel there from the UK, fly to JFK or La Guardia with British Airways, American Airlines or United, and then either hire a car to drive to the Hamptons or take the seaplane to East Hampton. It takes just over an hour and a half to drive to White Fences Inn from either JFK or La Guardia.
White Fences Water Mill
An idyllic, welcoming and homely B&B, the modern interior boasts every luxurious touch you could wish for. Run by Liz and Eric (with help from their dog Bailey), there is a real family atmosphere about the place and the air is often filled with the delicious smell of baking.
Newly renovated and tastefully decorated, all five rooms at White Fences offer the level of accommodation you would expect from a luxury hotel. Standard throughout are Frette and Matouk linens, flat screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi, modern gas fire and air conditioning. Most rooms have their own Nespresso coffee machines, while bathrooms come equipped with hairdryer, robes and slippers and heated floors. All bathrooms have showers and most also have free standing IOS volcanic stone soaking tubs. Room Tip – the quietest rooms are at the back of the property, facing the pool area.
White Fences prides itself on its sensational breakfasts, prepared each morning by Liz using the best and freshest ingredients sourced from local farms and suppliers. The menu is varied and plentiful, and includes dishes such as fresh baked croissants with homemade orange honey butter, homemade scones, berry baked oatmeal and orange cardamom French toast. Three courses is usual and you may not need to eat for the rest of the day!
Pool and Activities
A large pool ringed with comfortable sun loungers and set in an attractive garden at the rear of the property is available for guests to while away a sunny afternoon or two. In addition to this, White Fences is ideally located for exploring the delights of The Hamptons. With beautiful beaches just a short drive away, not to mention upmarket boutiques and a wide variety of restaurants, there is plenty to keep you occupied in the local area without having to venture too far. The Hamptons is also a great place for art galleries, wineries, fishing, cycling and much more.
A true family atmosphere is encouraged here with guests eating breakfast together, but if you have an early start, there’s no need to worry about missing out on the lavish fare. Chances are, thoughtful owners Liz and Eric will send you on your way with a delicious breakfast to go.
If you’re after a warm welcome, luxurious accommodation and the perfect location from which to enjoy The Hamptons, White Fences ticks all the boxes.
