Elizabeth Main has owned this charming Southampton home for over twenty years. The house which goes back almost 200 years has been lovingly restored to capture the easy country elegance of the old days of Southampton. Mainstay is the longest run private Bed and Breakfast in Southampton.

The home is on an acre of property on historic Hill Street and within walking and biking of the glorious world famous Coopers Beach and elegant shopping on Main Street and Jobs Lane. Shinnecock, Sebonac and National Golf Courses are approximately one mile from the property which has a 20×40 in-ground SALTWATER pool and 1/2 acre perennial gardens.

During the summer season The Mainstay has two and three night minimums on the weekends. There is no minimum during the discounted midweek stays. There are several suites that can accommodate families very comfortably. These are our most desirable rooms for summer visitors. Queen rooms are also available.

All rooms have decanters with sherry. During the summer season beach towels are available in each room for your convenience.

Mainstay has been featured in Good Housekeeping’s June 2001 subscription issue and ON THE JITNEY magazine issue , today the country home is used as a summer house for extended families during the season as well as still inviting guest on occasion for off season with limited availability.
