Great News! The Mill House Inn reopened on July 1st and we are looking forward to welcoming you home.
The weather, since summer began, has been everything summer is supposed to be, and the Hamptons are finally entering Phase 4 of New York State’s Reopening Plan.
- Many local restaurants are now offering Take-Out, Outdoor Dining and Limited Indoor Seating. Please ask us for the latest updates
- Grocery and Liquor Stores are open and taking appropriate precautions to keep both shoppers and staff safe
- Wineries are open and many have beautiful outdoor seating. Wölffer has a Rosé Drive-Through!
- Farms and Farmers’ Markets are filled with fresh produce and the berries are ripe!
- Museums and Galleries, which have been offering remarkable online programming since the shutdown began, are now beginning to open their doors
- Drive-In and outdoor movies are popping up all over the Hamptons
- Boutiques and Salons are now allowed to be open in certain circumstances
- We have East Hampton Village Beach Parking Permits for our guests, and dogs are welcome before 9am and after 6pm
At the Mill House Inn we have spent the last three months cleaning, organizing, and creating new policies and protocols to keep our staff and guests healthy and happy!
- Check-in balances will be run on the evening prior to your arrival and your keys, etc. will be in your room to allow for contactless check-in and check-out
- Both staff and guests will have their temperature taken when entering the inn and will be required to wear masks in all common areas inside – except, of course, in the comfort of your own room or suite – and whenever unable to maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more outdoors
- Breakfast will be delivered picnic-style and left outside your door at a time of your choice (between 9 am and 11 am). You are free to enjoy your picnic in your room, in our lush gardens, or at the beach. (The MHI Dining Room will not be open during this period.)
- Our famous ‘Nack Bar will not be stocked during the pandemic but we will have water, coffee, ice tea and maybe even some tasty treats available for you on request
- We have Beach Chairs, Umbrellas and Coolers of Ice to take with you to the beach – of course, they will be cleaned before and after each use
- Our housekeepers will be constantly sanitizing all frequently touched surfaces in the common space of the inn
- Daily housekeeping is available in your room if desired. Please let us know a window of at least 2 hours when you will be out of the room and if you wish fresh sheets or towels
- All rooms will be deep-cleaned, and all towels and linens – including blankets, pillow protectors and duvet covers – will be cleaned in hot water and sanitized between each guest stay
Are you hoping to travel with your extended family or a group of friends with whom you feel safe? Looking for a week, a month, or even the entire season? If our Graybarn Cottage is already booked we have some other options for you:
- Consider taking all 3 Suites in the Back House: Suite 40, Suite 31 (which share a private porch and hallway), and Suite 32 (just upstairs) – Make all the noise you want and you will not disturb any other guests!
- Maybe the Rooms and Suites in the Main House: Suite 11 on the Ground Floor, Suite 12 and Room 4 & Room 5 on the 2nd Floor, and Room 7 & Room 8 on the 3rd Floor (or some combination thereof) – Take them all and your group can enjoy the MHI Dining Room as your very own since it will not otherwise be open during this period!
- Let us know what you are looking for and we will help you design the perfect refuge for you and your team
Let us help you escape the city, or the feeling of being cooped up in your own home, however beautiful it may be!
See you at the beach!
