Me and my boyfriend stayed at The Mainstay for 6 nights. The first evening we arrived we had been travelling for 20 hours (we live in Finland), so we were really tired. Elizabeth made us feel very welcome and offered food and wine for us. We were really happy to stay at The Mainstay. It was a beautiful old house...

This place was recommended by my girlfriend's co-worker...and it did not disappoint. This was our first ever bed and breakfast. Elizabeth was very accommodating from the onset. By the phone conversation alone I knew that this would be an enjoyable stay. Upon our arrival she offered us a major upgrade to our room simply because it was available...I didn't even...

We had a wonderful stay this weekend in the Gin Lane room. The room was just as I was hoping for in a Southampton B&B. It was very spacious and cozy and beautifully decorated. Great attention to detail. Elizabeth was very welcoming and warm. We enjoyed meeting other guests at breakfast and found the breakfast to be delicious. We particularly...

Mainstay was my residence for three consecutive summers while building my own home in the Hamptons. I looked forward to the wonderful breakfast, and Elizabeths fresh baked muffins and fresh fruit, along with meeting and chatting with the diverse array of guests each weekend. I watched the garden evolve into a wonderful outdoor space that I could sit in the...

The Mainstay is a very nice B & B in Southampton, five minutes by car from the village. The grounds are very nice and it also has a swimming pool. The owner resides with her standard poodle Tallulah. Breakfast is simple but very nice, with fresh fruit and waffles. We had a huge room, I believe it was the Gin...

Booked a room at the Mainstay last week; was really looking forward to it, as we have stayed in B & B's before. The grounds were nice; the house was in need of work. Shabby chic is one thing, but when the shower curtain is falling on you while you shower, and the open windows are full of cobwebs, someone...

After having read some of the reviews posted here by guests of The Mainstay, a delightful Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Southampton, I'd like to begin by making two points: First - A Bed and Breakfast is not for everyone. It has been stated in some of the reviews, that staying at Mainstay is like being someone's houseguest....

The Mainstay is so charming and I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It is located just minutes from the beach and town. The room I stayed in was gorgeous and I felt so comfortable and cozy. Great hospitality and delightful breakfast. Very clean and well kept with beautiful garden. No complaints!! I look forward to returning!
