For savvy New Yorkers the Hamptons is the place to be in the summer.  But if you’re not rich or connected enough to have access to a beach mansion you can still enjoy the Hamptons’ lifestyle with its pristine beaches, fine restaurants, upscale shops, polo matches, antiques show, and social events by staying at The Village Latch Inn.  With its Gatsby-style mansions, The Village Latch Inn sits on a lovely 5-acre estate in an ideal location, just steps from the beach and within walking distance to Southampton Village and its fashionable shopping, galleries, museums, and restaurants.

Since 1901, this secluded retreat has hosted the rich and famous, including such notable names as Vice President Joe Biden, former Vice President Al Gore, Michael J. Fox, Isabella Rossellini, Sarah Jeessica Parker, and Dennis Quaid, just to name a few.  All 67 rooms (in five different buildings) are individually decorated with a whimsical modern decor or eclectic antiques, including artifacts from every corner of the globe–puppets from Burma, masks from New Guinea, artifacts from Africa and Tibetan rugs.  Some accommodations feature fireplaces, balconies or decks.  All have private baths, air-conditioning, ceiling fans and TV.  Each building offers magnificent living rooms for communal gathering.

There is a heated outdoor swimming pool, an on-site tennis court, free bikes and special health club privileges available.  The Inn offers complimentary continental breakfast served on a cheery outdoor porch in season, free wireless Internet access and free parking.

Summer like the celebrities at your own secluded seaside getaway in Southampton!
