The galas and parties are cancelled. The fundraisers are postponed. Theatre and concerts are either virtual or cancelled. The golf outings are postponed. The large events of the past decade aren’t generating travel to the Hamptons this year. But…. the old-fashioned reasons for visits are very much available to guests at the Southampton Inn.
The beaches; the light; the walking paths and hiking trails; the exquisite flowers and trees and the abundant birds and bunnies (and deer and turtles); the fishing and surfing and kayaking and sailing and…. just reading a good book listening to the wind in the trees or watching the waves rolling in from the Atlantic…. these are the things that we all continue to enjoy after Labor Day in Southampton. In the heart of the village, the Southampton Inn is the gateway to it all!
The Southampton Inn:
- The heated pool is open until October 15th (weather permitting).
