Wonderful Weekend

5 on August 12, 2012

My husband and I had a wedding to attend in the Hamptons earlier this month. We decided to spend a few extra days. The Inn is beautiful. The rooms are tastefully decorated. Maureen and Tom were both accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was great. We will definitely return.

Spent a weekend at the beach in July. Would definitely recommend. They make your stay feel like home.

What a find.

My first B&B stay on Long Island and I was very pleased with our choice. We stayed in the Blue Room and loved the decor and privacy. The surroundings were beautiful and near to all. We will return again. Thank you, Maureen, for the hospitality and a wonderful stay. Patricia

What a Find

4.8 on June 07, 2010

I have to admit, when I chose to stay at the Shearwater Inn it was a bit of a gamble since there's not a lot about it out there on the internet. It definitely paid off though, so I'm glad I did it. High risk, high reward you could say. The place is in really good shape, my room was really clean and the house itself looks like it's brand new. Also, the pictures don't do it justice but the place is HUGE. The common area for guests is enormous and you can either eat your breakfast in there or out on the deck in the back (which I did). Everything about the place is big and new, including the room I stayed in (Blue Rose). It's about a 10 minute drive to the beach, and it's right off Montauk Highway so it's really convenient. Got to Southampton in about 15 minutes. The family who owns it is really nice and they definitely make you feel like youre on vacation, and that's really what it's all about isn't it?

Relaxing getaway

Pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness and cleanliness of the rooms. Good breakfast, great location as it's close to the beaches, shopping and dining. Felt right at home at this B & B. Definitely recommend it.

The Weekend of a Lifetime

5 on May 28, 2010

Being one of the Shearwater Inn's first guests, I was a little nervous but excited as to how the weekend would play out. Upon arriving and being greeted by the innkeeper, Maureen, I was quickly assured that my family would have a great time. Maureen was remarkably helpful in assisting us in finding family friendly events, and she was extremely friendly and hospitable throughout the stay. My family stayed in the "White Linen" room, which I believe is one of the larger rooms the Bed and Breakfast offers. We have one small child who slept in a cot provided by the Inn, and me and my wife slept comfortably in a queen sized bed. The beds were very comfortable and there were no disruptions to our sleep. The breakfast provided is plentiful and delicious, Maureen even gave us a few treats to take with us to the beach! Overall, the Shearwater Inn has it all; beautifully kept grounds, amazing rooms, and a delicious breakfast every morning. I highly recommend it to all Hampton goers!
