Quite simply! The absolute gracious and welcoming Mill House Inn was a highlight of our vacation. We travelled from South Africa with great expectations of The Hamptons with all its allure, understated elegance and grand style. This is an aspirational destination and this "once-in-a-lifetime" visit was highlighted by the fabulous welcoming, enthusiastic, gracious, helpful and caring members of staff. Courtney was sensational! In retrospect, The Mill House Inn truly embodied our expectations of a holiday in The Hamptons. I'll never have a chocolate chip cookie without the happy memories of the Mill House Inn. The Breakfast was a conversation piece of note. Thank-you and hope that you will have the opportunity to visit The Light House Boutique Suites in the Cape Winelands. Outstanding and memorable experience!

Room Tip: Room really spacious.

Having spent many happy summers in the Hamptons as a young adult, my expectations were very high when I booked this "homecoming" with my wife. We arrived in town a but early on a perfect sunny summer afternoon and decided to stop by and drop off our bags and car and walk around town. The front desk received us with a grace and professionalism and told us our suite was ready and waiting. The accommodations and service were casual, sublime, totally professional and exactly what I would expect out of a top level boutique. And don't miss out on the cookies or "sloppy joe," the star of the breakfast menu. You can easily walk to all of East Hampton's shops and attractions from the Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front are surprisingly quite as the porch provides additional privacy. Plus they get go...

My wife and I spent our wedding anniversary vacationing in East Hampton. We decided to go at the last minute. As you can guess, hotel rates for the Hamptons in summer can be a "little" high!
No sooner did I make the reservation online, I received a call from the Mill House Inn regarding any needs we might have, dinner reservations or activities that we needed help on. Mind you, this was a Sunday afternoon. The next day, I received another call from the Inn, telling us that we were being upgraded to a Suite at no additional cost. Wow! What a start. We hadn't left home yet and we were already impressed. When we arrived, we were welcomed by Carolyn and chocolate dipped strawberries in our room. The Inn included everything one could think of in the rate. Round the clock cookies, water, soda, coffee, tea, etc. Cheeses and crackers, whenever we desired.
We brought a bottle of wine and they simply laid it out for us, wuth cheese, crackers and olives on a tray to enjoy the view from the porch. The gourmet breakfast, especially the lobster frittata was just ridiculously good. I don't mind saying that we have stayed in some of the world's finest hotels and resorts. The Mill House Inn, run by Courtney and J, is on the top of the list regarding service, food, accomodations and amenities. I know it sounds like this is a paid review, but The Mill House Inn is that good. Actually, we are considering a winter visit to a summer place just to stay here again.

The Mill House Inn will forever have a special place in my heart as this is where my fiancé (then boyfriend) and I stayed when he proposed on the beach in East Hampton. Upon arrival at Mill House, the staff warmly greeted us and made sure we immediately took advantage of the snack bar they have in the check-in area, comprised of delicious cookies, savory treats, iced tea, and so much more.

Our room was fantastic. It had a very cozy and relaxed ambiance. The bathroom is huge with a nice bathtub and stand up shower. I was obsessed with the lavender-scented skin, hair products and their plush bathroom robes.

The couple who runs the day-to-day operations for Mill House, J and Courtney, are such warm and friendly people who made a genuine effort to get to know us and ensure that we had the most wonderful stay. We really got to know them during our breakfasts, which were absolutely delicious!! We loved everything - the fresh fruit, lobster frittata, scrambled eggs, etc. We also enjoyed some of the best coffee we’ve ever had, thanks to J and his passion for carefully selecting coffee beans (don’t leave without trying “Baby’s coffee” from Key West) and using a unique brewing process.

Carolyn, the Resident Manager, was great; she made sure we had champagne and cheese waiting for us in our room when we returned from the post-engagement beach day. They were all in on my fiancé’s proposal plans and I am beyond grateful that I’ll always associate them and that beautiful inn with our engagement.

Overall, amazing experience and I would highly recommend staying there!

We had a wonderful time at your Inn and hope to return again before too long.

The breakfasts were great, probably had a little difficulty doing them justice just because we had been travelling for quite some time.

We loved all the little extras, the fact that nothing seemed to be too much trouble and the beach gear was an unexpected bonus!

Hi Pam
Please do schedule The Mill House as the first leg of your next excursion and I promise we will have something special on the menu just for you. Preferences? Maybe jumbo lump crabmeat with a lemon chive-aioli, organic eggs scrambled with fingerling potatoes and crisp shallots! Or… Grass-fed Montana beef, grilled cremini mushrooms and sweet osso onions, fried eggs with fresh thyme and goat cheese.

Everything we do is about the smallest details, a little bit of invisible wonder and a precious smile. Making your travels a pleasure is truly our pleasure, it's why hospitality matters so much to us.

We stayed at the Mill House Inn the week after Memorial day 2014 to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. We cannot say enough good things about the Inn!! First off - the service! The staff is incredibly helpful, kind and goes out of their way to make your stay memorable. They assist with anything you need -dinner reservations, winery recommendations, activities to do, anything! Courtney, J, Carolyn, etc all were all amazing!! The room was spotless and adorable with a fireplace and comfy bed! The location was perfect, walking distance to the heart of east hampton. Now, on to the food - TO DIE FOR!! Their breakfast was out of this world - order off a menu with a million options, the best iced coffee we've ever had!! Can't say enough good things!! They also have homemade cookies (also TO DIE FOR) around the clock as well as popcorn, savory snacks, cheese plates , etc. All delicious! Overall, our 3 night stay was unforgettable. The price was well worth it and we will be returning the next time we are in the hamptons! Thank you Mill house Inn!

We stayed at The Mill House Inn three weeks ago and had a wonderful time!! The rooms are beautiful, the staff is amazing and they are extremely dog friendly!! Our dog, Opal, had a GREAT time. I can't say enough nice things about The Mill House Inn. There was even a mix-up with our type of room when we arrived and they fixed it without any problems at all. The Inn is immaculate and beautiful and the gorgeous dog-friendly beach is about a mile and a half down the street past shopping and restaurants. If I did not hurt my leg prior to coming, I would have taken advantage of the gym passes they provide as well. We can't wait to go back next year.
