The Southampton Inn is officially reopened and now is the perfect time to plan a refreshing reunion with friends and family by the beautiful beaches, just one mile from the Inn. Plus they’re within walking distance of Main Street and Jobs Lane, shopping and wonderful arts and cultural experiences. See below for more experiences you can expect to enjoy in Southampton.

Beach: Coopers Beach is open and available for Southampton Inn guests to use. Swim, sun, picnic, build sand castles. You will be given a guest card upon check in that will serve as your identification. While there is no day parking this year (to prevent the beaches from becoming too crowded), the inn is running its polka dotted shuttle van, bikes will be rented as usual, and the walk is just over one mile to the #1 rated “Best Beach”. Please pick up your [sanitized] beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels at the front desk.

Swimming pool: It is now open for swimming to guests of the Southampton Inn. As with so many protocol changes for this year, there is a limit of 10 people at a time in the pool. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are set up on the lawns outside the pool gates for your safe distancing and relaxation. Pool towels are available at pool to cover the chairs and, yes, they are sanitized frequently between guests.

Restaurants: are now opening in Phase 2 , within Southampton Village and while maintaining distancing, restaurants will be able to offer outside dining. We recommend that you visit Union Burger Bar.

Claude’s: The Great American Picnic has outside dining spots on pool patio, beautiful lawns, ballroom, or enjoy a picnic in the parks, at the beach, or in your guest room.

Shopping: The unique boutiques in Southampton Village will be open next week (also June 10th) and will likely include sidewalk shopping for your comfort, safety, and fun. Many stores will have hand sanitizer. Most are requiring masks. And all have their wonderful merchandise that contributes to the joy of being in the Village.

Historic Southampton Village: There are lots of things to do in our historic and classic Southampton Village this year. You can explore local history like the natives. See

buildings built during the 1600s, 1700s and learn more about Southampton’s history.

Nature Trails: There are wonderful walking and hiking trails. Go off the beaten path by exploring Southampton’s pristine nature preserves like Wolf Hollow Swamp, Emma Rose Elliston Park and Tuckahoe Woods Preserve.

Pets: As always, a limited number of rooms are pet friendly and must be reserved in advance. There is a pet fee.

Connecting rooms and extended stays: There are a couple of days in August that have very few rooms available. If you are thinking about a monthly or seasonal booking, please call as soon as possible, 631–283–6500, so that we can find the best room type for your visit.
