At Southampton Inn, guests can make the most of the acres of lawn space that appeals to many interests. The private gardens are ideal for reading or quiet contemplation, while the all-weather tennis court, heated 50-foot swimming pool, shuffleboard court, Ping Pong table or green spaces for croquet, volleyball, or badminton will appeal to athletes of all ability levels.
With an on-site, well-stocked game room, the Southampton Inn is welcoming to families and guests of all ages. Pets are also welcome (for an additional fee) in one of the Inn’s specially designated pet-friendly guest rooms. At the end of the day, guests can retire to their well-appointed guestrooms that include Tempur-Pedic mattresses, upscale linens, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, complimentary Wi-Fi internet access, and flat-screen televisions with more than 100 channels.
Another exciting update this year is Southampton Inn’s new in-house restaurant Café Klyde, headed up by Chef Scott Andriani, which will stay open for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the season. Southampton Inn will continue to serve up Dan’s Paper’s “Best of the Best” Breakfast at Café Klyde restaurant. Café Klyde is open for lunch daily, offering delectable seasonal dishes such as the Gin Cured Salmon Sashimi, Braised Spring Lamb Meatballs and Klyde’s “open faced” Lobster Roll.
Café Klyde serves up dinner specials such as the Locally Caught Grilled Bass served with cous cous, olives, roasted tomato, black kale and lemon; a signature Hampton Clam Chowder; and the fresh Summer Salad, featuring local leaves, strawberries, feta cheese and shaved whole wheat. Pair with draft beers, a selection of wines, or signature drinks such as the Southampton Mojito Float. For those with a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Flourless Mini Cake with Fresh Raspberries and the Strawberry Trifle are not to be missed. The restaurant’s club-casual décor creates a relaxing, non-pretentious atmosphere where guests can enjoy a true Hamptons dining experience with style and ease. Café Klyde will also offer catering to serve all kinds of corporate functions, retreats, cocktail parties, luncheons, rehearsal dinners, weddings and more! The catering service pulls from the classic breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus.
The property’s 6,000 square feet of flexible indoor meeting space, which includes a conference room, ballroom, on-site restaurant, and proximity to transportation to and from New York City, also make the Southampton Inn an ideal location for corporate meetings, retreats and conferences as well as social gatherings.
Southampton Inn continuously develops relationships with new restaurant and shop owners each year to ensure they have the most up to date menus and most exclusive coupons to offer their guests. Southampton Inn works with the Hamptons Visitor Council, the Southampton Historical Museum, and the local news outlets to make sure everyone is working together to make Southampton the most exciting vacation spot on Long Island.
