The Inn at Windmill Lane

Escaping the Big Apple for some peace and quiet…and the beach!
Springtime! Late April 2014
Me and the hubby, Brendon Babenzien.
Outhouse for small private happenings & a cute little garden nook for romancing, especially when the fire is lit.
Welcome to my abode...the living room/first floor of Suite 1, complete with plenty of really good books! Great spot to slip on a robe and get nice & cozy.
Upstairs bliss…dreamy bed and open woodburning fireplace.
Bedside treats set the mood…and potentially get the sheets really dirty. I devoured these delicious fresh chocolate covered strawberries.
Massive bathroom with the deepest tub for two.
All I needed was a bath-side table for my glass of merlot.
Two power sunshine showers...takes all the fun out of sharing. But who could be mad?
Loved our private patio - perfect spot for a breakfast feast and The New York Times.
Bikes come in handy to nip around town or to the beach.
And they are very comfortable to ride.
Oh and did I mention they bake pastries, muffins & treats daily? Take a few to pack for the day.
The communal rooms include a big kitchen where a pretty impressive breakfast spread is laid out: fresh local cream cheese and smoked salmon and a huge stocked fridge that guests can help themselves to any time of day.
Pilgrim Shop in Amagansett Square.
The house and lawn...complete with hammocks & adirondacks.
Highs + Lows
Two open, wood burning fires in my suite! Couldn’t be happier… and the staff will come to light them for you whenever you command, 24 / 7.
Massive bathroom with a huge soaking tub and a walk in closet! I’m sold.
The Duxiana bed. Let me say it again, The BED - like sleeping on a cloud. Best bed EVER… so dreamy it hurt me to go back to my own.
Beach passes for every East Hampton beach - town and village! That’s impressive. Plus all the towels, beach chairs and umbrellas you need… and free SUV service in case you don’t feel like driving or cycling.
I would add some design elements such as more chairs in the bathrooms and bedrooms. And a bigger TV in the bedroom.
The grounds are beautiful, (perfect for weddings) but having a little pool would be the icing on the cake. Apparently it’s on the cards for a later addition.

Super luxury, high-end bed and breakfast estate.
Your very own home away from home, complete with high-end everything; a private, luxurious, classic Hamptons retreat. Peaceful not social, just relax and do you.
Perfectly located down a quiet country road, just minutes from everything. Five minute bike ride to the beach, two minutes to Amagansett Square.
Seven large suites, three bungalows and one four bedroom house.
Just the birds chirping and the breeze… excellent state of the art sound systems in every room though.
- Year Opened
- Designed By
The billionaire owner (who prefers his name out of the press). He is an avid art collector - hence art is everywhere!
A gym but no pool. Private steam rooms and gyms in the cottages.
No, but an excellent communal kitchen to prep whatever you desire. Sister restaurant ‘The Meeting House’ is just off the property.
Yes - a yummy selection of local and classic goodies, treats and drinks, but NO alcohol due to strict East Hampton zoning. However, the amazing concierge service will get you anything you request and stock your room ahead of your stay.
Kids only allowed in the cottages during summer… but pets are welcome!
Gasp! Very Expensive.
