We have two lovely rooms, each with king-sized beds, private baths, TVs, VCRs, refrigerators and air conditioning. The larger of the two rooms also has a sleep-on couch, very comfy. The guest rooms share a large, comfortable living room and a separate entrance shaded by a huge maple tree. In the back there is a private walled garden with a large swimming pool and a hammock hung under one of the many shade trees that surround the pool. We are situated on a twenty-two acre farm, perfect for jogging or just walking your dog, free from traffic and very quiet and safe. Home-made cookies and dog biscuits are available to all guests. In addition, we have a fully equipped pottery studio on the premises. Anyone wanting to do pottery or have a Raku firing workshop may feel free to make these arrangements with me.
This spacious cathedral-ceilinged room, papered with antique off-white roses and decorated with fine country antiques, has a walk-in closet, private bath, a TV, VCR, refrigerator and airconditoning. It has a very comfortable king-sized bed and a couch, also very comfortable for sleeping, and a free-standing folding screen for privacy. The view from this room is all trees -- maples, cerries and evergreens.
The Ivy room is papered with a lovely fresh ivy pattern and is surrounded outside by climbing ivy. This is a very bright, cheerful room, filled with afternoon sunlight. It also has its own bathroom, this one with a bathtub as well as a shower. It has its own TV, VCR, refrigerator and airconditioning. It faces a large, private walled yard full of shade trees and is very quite and peaceful. The view from this room is a sunny, walled garden filled with blooming shade trees.

Bend in the Road was the perfect place to bring our city dog for the vacation of his life. Carolyn has created an expansive and safe wonderland for dogs to play and explore in her fenced in yard and surrounding farm. Humans will love it too! This inn has the best of both worlds - it is extremely well located right in East Hampton close to town, restaurants, nightlife and beaches, but the property is tucked away on a quiet road and the house has a rustic charm with a Catskills feel to it. If you are looking for posh/chic, this may not be the place for you but if you are looking for a home away from home and real relaxation, you will find it here. Don't miss wine and cheese around 6pm with the innkeeper and her friends. They will give you great tips on special things to do and see in the area.

Carolyn is the most gracious host you could ever hope to find. The moment we arrived she came outside to welcome us in, especially my little doggy! Offering a choice of guest rooms (so hard to choose) and bringing in snacks on handcrafted plates, she couldn't make us feel more at home. Lucky for us it was a business trip and long-term stay. From the very first visit to our more recent, we have enjoyed the sparkling rooms as well as the gorgeous grounds. The only problem is we cannot get back often enough to that perfect blend of nature and nurture. PS Don't leave without stopping into the gallery. I bought two pieces of lovely pottery that made great gifts.

Rather than battle the hectic six our drive home on Sunday, we stopped at the Bend in the Road Guest House and found accommodations. What a wonderful choice we made! Even our dog was welcomed. We stayed in a lovely bright floral suite. It was quiet, private, and very comfortable. In the morning we enjoyed the bright sunlight streaming in through the trees and through the large skylight in our bath. The freshly baked popovers were delicious and the lovely brisk walk around the grounds was invigorating. Both made our return home relaxing and refreshed us for the long trip. Although this was a last minute choice for us, it was one I would highly recommend for a refreshing getaway at any time.

I had the good fortune of staying in The Bend in the Road Guest House while I was looking for a property to buy in East Hampton. I had brought my dog and was thrilled to find that there was a beautiful landscaped acre for her to roam as well a big pool for myself to relax in after a busy day of house hunting. Caroline,the proprietor, was most gracious and extremely helpful in introducing me to the area. I was treated to homemade baked goods every morning by the pool. I was so taken with the area that I ended up purchasing a home in the same neighborhood.

I was about to post our own review of our stay at this charming guest house, and saw a highly negative review, which surprisingly related to the very same weekend we stayed there. There were three or four women in the other suite who were quite unfriendly Yes, the house is old, as is the wiring, but it hardly as derelict as they depict. It's an old farmhouse with large beautiful grounds. We have no complaints at all, quite the contrary! We will be back, gladly. The hostess is gracious and supportive, and only a phone call away. if needed. Our continental breakfast was served to us outside under a shade tree, and consisted of warm homemade popovers with homemade jam! She offered to bring it into our bedroom, but took it outside relaxing out by the pool with fresh coffee. That suited us better. We shared wine and cheese with her one night, again a delightful change from a motel experience. I'm not prone to respond to the other review directly since people are entitled to their opinions, but our opinion is that this is a gem of a find. BTW the location is superb, halfway between E Hampton and Amagansett , and you can walk to either for fine restaurants and watering holes. In July it is bit difficult to cross the Montauk highway Rte 27 because of heavy speeding traffic; the nearest safe crossings are at traffic lights about a half-mile in either direction. The Inn is not on the highway but one block north.
