Every once in a while, someone writes an article about the Mill House Inn that makes my heart sing! This is one of the few… And Molly’s photographs are fabulous, too.
“FOR A LUXURIOUS STAY: THE MILL HOUSE INN
The Mill House Inn in East Hampton is repeatedly rated one of the best small hotels in America. The suites are lovely, the garden is gorgeous, and the breakfast is absolutely fabulous.
Those looking for a gorgeous place to stay in the Hamptons need look no further than The Mill House Inn in East Hampton. This refined-yet-cozy inn with a beautiful rhododendron garden captures all the romance of why we love the Hamptons in the first place: gorgeous grounds, refined local cuisine, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and an emphasis on thoughtful, restorative rest and relaxation.
Many people come to stay just for the lovely seasonal breakfast. Recent menu items at the Mill House Inn include a gorgeous Montauk Lobster Frittata made with grilled asparagus, roasted red pepper, sweet onion, crisp local fingerling potatoes, applewood smoked bacon and crème fraîche, as well as brioche french toast, local vegetable hash, and a signature “Sloppy Joe” scramble made with Berkshire pork, chorizo, ground beef, tomato, sweet onion, and Vermont goat cheese.
Homemade green juice, a full range of craft coffees, and bread baskets by Blue Dock Bakery are de rigueur. Mill House Inn also uses organic eggs and farm-fresh butter (as if there was any other kind in the Hamptons) and breakfast can be served en suite or in the quaint lounge. (For the full experience, try both.)
Back in the rooms, no detail is spared– the Inn even makes their own bath salts for the luxurious jacuzzi tubs featured in each suite. Every room at the Mill House Inn has a different theme, but each features a charming fireplace and well made, traditionally crafted wood and leather furniture. Fast Internet, lovely turn down service, the ability to walk to the center of town, and the season beach passes available at the front desk are just bonuses.
Guests should also be sure not to miss the Mill House Inn’s signature snack bar, which features a surprising array of homemade and local snacks. These include house-made kale chips, jerky, and cookies; local ice cream; seasonal lemonades; a popcorn bar featuring flavors like truffle and black pepper; and local and international cheese and charcuterie boards with hummus, pickles, and hand fruit, all of which can be delivered to the room. The Inn also has a full boutique coffee menu, with each cup made fresh to order. (Unless, of course, you want cold brew; they keep stylish glass bottles in the snack bar fridge.) The attention to detail, as we said, is bar none. The Mill House Inn doesn’t skimp on anything…”
