What I love most about the Mill House Inn is our guests!

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    To stay at The Mill House Inn! Oh, and to enjoy our historic village; ocean, bay & harbor beaches; great shopping, restaurants, galleries and theaters; wineries, fishing, farm stands, film festivals, horse shows and so much more… And I would be remiss not to mention celebrity spotting.

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    The number of repeat guests...

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    The Hamptons are known world round as the playground of the rich and famous. What is not so well known is that East Hampton township has over 65% preserved green land, encompassing beaches, estuaries, nature trails, walking dunes, working farms and historic sites - all open for the enjoyment of our guests.

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    Relax. Explore. Eat, drink and be merry!

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    We are fortunate to be located on a residential street in the heart of the historic village of East Hampton - within walking distance of world class restaurants, shops, galleries & museums. The closest of the ocean beaches is just over a mile from the Mill House Inn - a lovely walk or bicycle ride down picturesque lanes.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    At this time we only serve breakfast and only to our guests - but it is certainly a culinary highlight of the area! Some of our favorite restaurants are the East Hampton Grill, Rowdy Hall, Nick & Toni's, Fresno, Citta Nuova and the 1770 House - all within walking distance of the inn. And all of them will do take out for our guests who prefer to dine in the inn's dining room or the comfort of their own suite.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    We provide a comprehensive guide of "where to go and what to do" in the area and a weekly calendar of events on our website. For anyone interested in delving deeper into the history and gossip of East Hampton I highly recommend Steven Gaines' "Philistines at the Hedgerows" and Everett T. Rattray's "The South Fork - The Land and the People of Eastern Long Island."

    We have 4 rooms, 6 suites and a 4 bedroom house, the Graybarn Cottage, which we rent with full boutique hotel services.

    Good dogs are welcome to bring their people to stay in most of our suites and our Graybarn Cottage. We provide dog beds & dishes, organic treats, and our chef is happy to prepare fresh dog food for our four legged friends.
