Our deluxe rooms have whirlpool baths.
At The Mill House Inn we serve a leisurely breakfast every morning, which our guests have proclaimed, ¿the best they have ever eaten". Chef-Owner Gary has created an extensive breakfast menu featuring his trademark ¿house-made five-spice, roasted garlic chicken sausage¿ and ¿bourbon, honey, thyme smoked salmon.¿ A word of caution: some menu items tend to be of dangerously large proportions. Upon request the kitchen may be coaxed to produce a breakfast of a more modest size! But we recommend you eat slowly, eat well and then take a long walk on the beach¿
As well as attracting sun-worshipers, honeymooners, artists, writers, carpenters, fishermen, farmers, filmmakers, famous people and paparazzi - the Hamptons have cast their spell on world-class chefs and restauranteurs. The restaurant scene here rivals those of major ¿food¿ cities and some of the finest East End eateries are within walking distance of The Mill House Inn. The dress code in the Hamptons is casual (wear blue jeans and a $500 shirt!) and the clientele is always an eclectic mix. Many of the best Hamptons restaurants are now open year-round, but their schedules and reservation policies vary widely. We are happy to advise you on the choices and make your dinner reservations. Some of our favorite restaurants include Della Femina¿s, The Laundry and Rowdy Hall. You might find us there - we usually eat at the bar since we never manage to make reservations for ourselves!
Face it; no matter what else The Hamptons have to offer, it¿s the beaches that bring the crowds. If you¿re into crowds, Main Beach in East Hampton is the place to be. Bring the umbrella and the beach chairs and settle in for a day of fun in the sun. Got to have a hot dogs and a lobster roll¿ But if the scene is not your scene, just walk a few hundred feet up the beach and there will be no one casting a shadow on your tan. West of Main Beach is Georgica Beach from which you can see the very exclusive homes of folks like Martha Stuart and Steven Spielberg. For surfing, Ditch Plains in Montauk is the most popular beach. And of course there is the gay beach at Two Mile Hollow¿ But don¿t spend all your time on the ocean ¿ our bay and harbor beaches are spectacular, too. The water is calmer (good for swimming and paddling) and warmer (real nice in the early summer when the ocean is still icy). Maidstone Beach at the mouth of Three Mile Harbor gives you a good view of the boats coming & going. Louse Point juts out between Accabonac Harbor and Gardiner¿s Bay. The harbor is amazingly peaceful, dotted with small islands and Osprey nests on high platforms. In Napeague Harbor you have the choice of hiking along the beach or up to the Walking Dunes. Strong winds cause the dunes to move; as they ¿walk¿ they bury trees in their way. You can see the tree trunks that are slowly being covered by sand. It¿s worth getting sand in your shoes climbing to the top for 360º water views. Gin Beach, on the east side of the mouth of Montauk Harbor, recalls the bootlegging past of the East End. Legend has it that crates of hooch used to wash up on the shore¿
