With a prime position just off East Hampton’s Main Street The Mill House Inn has been lovingly created by owners Gary and Sylvia Muller. From the moment you step into the original 1896 Dutch Colonial home you are welcomed into the inner circle of life in the Hamptons.
East Hampton is the most charming of the seven villages that compete for attention on the South
Fork of Long Island. Its origins according to Hampton’s folklore are based on a select few settlers breaking away from the strict rules and regulations of Southampton and creating a freer and friendlier community 30 minutes along the coast. That ethos still holds true today giving it a comfortable and friendly atmosphere and a more bohemian heart beneath its designer sunglasses and Jimmy Choos.
East Hampton Main Beach was voted the best beach in America for 2013, what makes it so special is the sense of openness the lack of crowds.

When to go
East Hampton is busiest during the summer season when roads swell with traffic. If traveling from May to September when the season is at its peak and temperatures are warmest aim for midweek stays to avoid the worst of the traffic and enjoy less crowds.
Fall and Spring are a beautiful time to visit with temperatures mild and wonderful colors. From November through to March temperatures drop and the crowd becomes more local. The Hamptons experienced in the snow is a wonderful addition to a Christmas shopping trip to New York
