The loving creation of a Laguna Beach chef and an English butler, A Butler's Manor has all the amenities of a boutique hotel writ small. With only five well–appointed rooms set on an acre of English Gardens, this boutique inn is a private Hamptons hideaway. Our version of The Hamptons is about choosing well. Rely on our insider's knowledge for the perfect beach, an exquisite dining spot, a sublime sunset cocktail, the best Chardonnay at one of the East End wineries, and much more. Our version of hospitality is about anticipation. We anticipate your wishes and your mood as only a gentleman's gentleman and chef can do. Never fussy, always ready. Just right. A Butler's Manor, a designated New York State historic property, is located one-half mile from the center of downtown Southampton Village, where you can enjoy shopping, dining, and nearby world-class ocean beaches, as well as access all the Hamptons-area attractions, including cultural events, seasonal equestrian events, and award-winning Long Island wineries..

A little paradise

5 on August 10, 2018

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is tastefully furnished and the “secret garden” with its secluded pool is like a personal hideaway. The hosts Kim and Chris take care of their guests in a very professional and personal way, making you feeling at home away from home. If you’re looking for THE place to stay in Southampton, this is it :-)

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks for your great review. We are glad you got to enjoy the garden and our salt-water pool. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we hope you will be out this way again soon. The Fall season is beautiful and we will save a space for you. Cheers!

A Trip Worth Taking

4.8 on July 10, 2018

A Butler's Manor exceeded our expectations. Chris and Kim are the ultimate hosts making sure our every need was met including Chris getting up at 6:30 in the morning to take my husband to the shuttle bus. The important things to us when staying at a hotel/inn are cleanliness, a supportive mattress and pillows, soft sheets, enough towels etc. All of the above categories receive 5 stars as does the outstanding breakfasts we enjoyed every morning! Each meal was truly a gourmet treat! I even purchased Kim's cookbook in hopes that I can replicate a few of these exceptional meals. All in all, a wonderful experience that receives a five star rating from us!!

Lots of fun.

Wow! Where do we start. Our two night stay at A Butler's Manor was everything we dreamed it would be and more. Chris and Kim are incredible hosts and the attention to detail is impeccable. The property is incredible, the breakfast was beyond delicious and the location is perfect. The grounds are so serene and peaceful and that makes this the best getaway to reset. Life goes by to fast. Slow down and book a room at a Butler's Manor. You won't regret it.

Amazing Respite from NYC Life

5 on April 26, 2018

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary in Southampton and we chose A Butler's Manor due to previous reviews. In person, this place was visually stunning, with an amazing decor and a comfortable atmosphere. Chris was a gracious host and tended to our every need during our one-night stay. He greeted us with a smile and offered us glasses of champagne to celebrate our arrival. Their outdoor garden is something to behold, with an outdoor swimming pool and a variety of flowers. Homemade chocolate chip cookies were available outside our bedroom with a varied selection of teas, hot chocolate, and hot coffee. After a busy day in Montauk and a charming dinner at the nearby Plaza Cafe, we settled by the fireplace and partook in their large book collection with glasses of wine in our hands. The Oak Knoll, our room, was endearing, albeit a bit small, with a high ceiling, antique drawers, and modern facilities. A TV/DVD player and charging station was supplied and the bathroom was outfit with bathrobes and all the toiletries needed for a comfortable shower. There were also packaged cookies, water bottles and a small bottle of sherry on the table to help us wind down for the night. After a comfortable rest, the morning after, Chris made us banana stuffed french toast in the morning, complete with freshly baked muffins and a variety of juices. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised when he started asking us about how we met, and our conversation went on as we reminisced like we were old friends. All in all, I wish we could give A Butler's Manor more than 5 stars because it deserves so much more than that for the exemplary service and amicable attitude. So we give 10 stars to A Butler's Manor, and we can't recommend it highly enough, especially if you are looking for an amazing respite from your busy life. And thank you again Chris, for everything. We are sure to return again in the near future.

Many thanks for spending your One Year anniversary with us and thank you for such a great review. It is our pleasure to help our guests relax and enjoy the Hamptons and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a while. Next time you come visit we will have to persuade Raina to play a few songs as well :-) Happy anniversary to you both and all the best till we see you later this year.

This place is not silver service....IT IS PURE GOLD SERVICE. Having travelled all over the world, A Butler's Manor is the best yet. Chris and Kim are the total professionals in every aspect. Have booked again for both of us in April 2018, why? It's just perfect!!!!! Gregg & Suzie

All the comforts of home but better!!

Upon our arrival we were greeted outside by a very sweet, helpful and informative Chris, which after the car ride we had, was so refreshing! We were taken inside to this beautiful home where Chris introduced us to Kim. We were shown the dining area, the garden and then to our room, which was absolutely amazing, I fell in love with the decor alone the comfort was the plus! Honestly they both go above and beyond for everyone who stays there, there isn't anything they haven't thought of to bring you all the comforts of home and more. Kim's cooking would make anyone want to stay, from her well put together meals to all the feshly baked cookies which my Fiance' looked forward to eveytime we came back to the manor! There is so much more Adam & I could say though I will keep it to this one last thing, I can't wait to find another excuse to head to New York just so we could stay here at a Butler's Manor again! And a great big thank you to Chris and Kim you made a very stressed girl feel calmer than any ocean! -Kathleen

A real treat

4.8 on October 04, 2017

My husband and I stayed at A Butler's Manor to celebrate our anniversary in September 2017. Our stay really exceeded our expectations and we will likely see Chris and Kim again. Having never been to the Hamptons and having only been to one B&B before, we set our expectations high based on the price, but they exceeded every expectation. It is clear that they take pride in their business and are satisfied when their guests are happy. About 5 days before our stay, we received a personal message saying that they were preparing for our stay and asking if we had any dietary restrictions or preferences. Meals were delicious and it was very clear that they selected and prepared fresh meals based on what we told them. When we came down for breakfast we never waited more than a minute to be greeted and offered fresh coffeee, tea, juice and food was served promptly and in an elegant manner. Rooms are a little small, but that should be expected given the age of the manor. Rooms were beautifully decorated, spotless, and the owners have placed everything possible to make your stay wonderful in the room (robes, maps, suggestions of activities, courtesy beach bag and towels to use during your stay). They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne and flowers from the garden to celebrate our special occasion. We were also pleasantly surprised that we liked one of the other couples we met over breakfast. They were friendly and shared that it was their 17th stay!!!

Hamptons heaven

From the moment we drove up to the house we knew we had chosen well. Met by Chris who was the perfect host - as you would expect from an English butler! The bedroom had every possible amenity including earplugs !! Fresh flowers from The garden and a glass of sherry was waiting for us. The bedsheets were like satin and such a comfortable bed. We couldn't wait to see what Kim had prepared for breakfast each morning as her cooking skills were incredible and her inventiveness was always deliciously surprising. Can't thank Chris and Kim enough for making our stay so enjoyable.

Incredible experience

5 on August 15, 2017

From the moment we entered the house wth our personal code, we were delighted. A bowl of chocolates in the hallway, a lovely carafe with sherry on the desk and m&m chocolate cookies were waiting for us. Since we arrived around 11:30 pm, we did not expect this kind of welcome. This was only exceeded by the comfortable room and amazing sheets. Our first breakfast was beyond expectations! We ate in a beautiful backyard surrounded by purple hydrangea. We drank our juice from crystal goblets and ate fresh fruit which was followed by avocado toast with eggs of our choice. I can go on and on to describe Kim and Chris and their warm hospitality. They love what they do and it is evident. We will definitely go back!
