"Refreshing Get Away"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming and unique hotel while visiting friends in the Hamptons. The location is perfect and the artistically furnished rooms and sprawling grounds felt like a world away. We'll be back!

"Such a nice place!"
We stay here every summer for a long weekend when we come to the Hamptons. The Village Latch is right in the middle of everything, has ambience and charm, and is really unique in its decor. On our stays, we have had different suites and rooms and they are consistently lovely. The owner is an artist and she definitely has a flare for interior design. Some of her artwork is displayed around, in addition to the treasures she has acquired on her travels. We have always found the staff to be helpful in guiding us towards new things to see and do in the area. We wouldn't stay anywhere else, as this place is special. One weekend, the Vice President was there! That's "OF THE UNITED STATES!"

"The best BB in Southampton"
My wife and I stayed at the Village Latch Inn with my daughter last weekend. We have been visiting the Village Latch Inn for about a month plus now and the property, staff, rooms and the location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. Every person at the hotel that we encountered is personable; they actually care about their guests and want to ensure that everyone has a marvelous experience. This is a boutique property which is very hard to find these days in Southampton. The property is family operated and all rooms are unique and charming. The property is immaculate and the moment you arrive you feel relaxed. During the summer season the hotel has a shuttle service straight to the beach and you don't even have to move your car. I would highly recommend the property to all families looking for a great vacation or quick get-away from the city.

"Hampton's Finest!!!"
I had a great stay here. This B&B was within walking distance of Main Street (great shops and restaurants) and also about 1.5 mile away from Cooper's Beach. Very cozy and relaxing. I will definitely be back!

"a true delight!!"
The Latch is a hidden gem right in the middle of Southampton. We made a last minute reservation for a King room. it felt like a fantasy. wonderful ceiling fans - didn't even turn on the air conditioners - and there were two in the room. beamed ceilings, eclectic decor - and the best possible location one could hope for. It would be great if they were open year round - would love to go back in late Fall or early Spring.
Room Tip: splurge for a king room in one of the outlying buildings - it is worth it!!

"Back again....."
We returned this year and were very pleased with our weekend stay. The grounds at the Latch are meticulously maintained and absolutely gorgeous. I noticed numerous improvements around the hotel and in our room ( btw, our room was clean, charming, fresh and very country like ). The front desk staff remembered us from our last visit and they treated us like we were old friends, we were truly touched. The light breakfast was perfect for us, and we enjoyed starting each morning chatting with others. Great place, great people....we'll be back next year!

"great location"
I'd stay there again for sure. Close to everything. Smallish room, but very clean and quiet. Very friendly staff. Very short walk to center of town

"perfect romantic summer getaway"
I have done the Hamptons party scene in the past, but I wasn't sure that it would be a good place to go for a romantic getaway. Well, this place was perfect. We had such a great time that we booked it for July 4th weekend as well and we just got back. It's not posh like the Ritz or the Waldorf, but it's the ideal romantic country getaway. We live in Manhattan and felt so relaxed out there! They shuttled us to the beach, which is gorgeous. We played tennis. We were able to walk to town for dinner (75 Main, Le Chef). They serve a wonderful breakfast (Zabar's bread, fresh fruits and yogurts, almond croissants, muffins, cereals, etc.) and they also put wine out in the evening for guests to help themselves.

The Village Latch Inn Hotel has been recognized by many prestigious travel guides, articles and publications as "the best place to stay in the Hamptons."

FODOR'S says ... The theatrical air to the 5-acre compound that makes up the Village Latch Inn is no accident. Owner Marta White spent her life in the theatre and she revels in setting a stage. Her artistic husband Martin worked in commercial films. The main house is turn-of-the-century, still "Gatsby-style Southampton" The circa 1900 building, once the annex to Southampton's most opulent hotel, may have been of Sanford White design. With 24 rooms on three levels, the living room could be the set of a movie- perhaps "Around the World in 80 Days" with Auntie Mame. Plush leopard-print cushions and gold and silver-threaded pillows are tossed artfully on the couches. Balaninese marionettes hang from the walls. It's all eccentric, eclectic, and artsy-and it all works. No guest room resembles another.
The rooms are decorated with a collection of antiques . Despite its lavishness, the inn is cozy-the sort of place where guests can help themselves to coffee or a cold drink any time of the day, even if the sign says KITCHEN CLOSED. Near the main house an additional 12 rooms includes Duplexes all with private decks. The Terry Cottage has 10 bedrooms, 3 living/dining rooms with fireplaces, most rooms have private decks.

The Homestead buildings, lovingly restored were rescued and moved to the property from the former Merrill Lynch Estate. It has two wings with a total of 13 rooms and a Victorian Greenhouse in between.

The Homestead building and Terry Cottage are perfect for families and extended stays. The facilities have been used for everything from fashion shoots, movie companies, reunions and celebrations. Also the perfect setting for an intimate wedding or corporate outing.

FROMMER'S says ... My favorite hotel in Southampton is The Village Latch Inn, 101 Hill St. (the extension of Job's Lane) Southampton. At first glance it looks like an old mansion pressed intoFrommer's Travel Guide modern-day service as an inn. It has tall hedges, big lawns, a green-shuttered colonial façade and aristocratic-looking gates on Hill Street. Actually, it used to be the annex to the Irving Hotel, a famous and now-demolished Southampton hostelry that stood across the street. At the distant end of its entrance hall is a collection of sunny public rooms filled with over stuffed furniture, hanging plants, bright pillows in floral prints, and random antiques. There's a cheery breakfast porch, as well as a sun porch filled with white wicker and blue floral fabrics. Everything is quite atmospheric and rather lush.

All accommodations are quite nice and equipped with thick rugs, stripped oak furniture, tweed-covered chaises, lazy ceiling fans AC and private baths. They look somehow sleeker than the typical "country inn" which is perhaps the inevitable result of being in fashionable Southampton. Unlike so many other inns, the Latch has a pool (quite a handsome one to) a tennis court, and a former conservatory. The inn is open from May 1st through October.


Just two blocks from the main street of boutiques on Job's Lane, hidden behind a front fence of privet, is a wonderful, whimsical, "Alice in Wonderland" country inn. It's eclectic, it's comfortable, it's sexy, it's fun, it's delightful is definitely different. Perfectly located right in town on a five acre estate yet within walking distance to everything. You feel like you're in a private oasis in Southampton. Mansion type buildings reflect the many travels and the sophisticated, eclectic taste of the artist owners. Each room is entirely different and almost defies description, except to assure you that they are all warm, gracious, cheerful and an adventure. There are spacious sitting rooms, rooms with fireplaces, balconies, decks, large studios, 2 room suites and duplexes with skylights. All have private baths and Hunter Caribbean fans and air conditioning. Even though it is located right in town, there is a park-like setting for the facilities of a full resort with a swimming pool and tennis court.



  • In the era of identical rooms in hotel chains, The Village Latch offers a wide range of rooms each completely unique and unusual. All are filled with antiques and interesting objects from exotic places around the globe.

    Recommended Country Inns...
  • No one has an inn like Marta's Village Latch Inn. It's eclectic, comfortable, zany, laid back, and surprising. The Inn reaches out to you with niches and footstools that imply ""Come sit and let's talk awhile." A good choice for a family reunion or meetings for business or pleasure.

    The sporty set should be happy with this mini-resort on five acres, complete with tennis court and outdoor heated pool. Each antique-filled room has a private bath, TV and air- conditioning. The front garden is like a mini-sanatorium, with a small pond and rose garden. The homey feel and proximity to town have lured Isabella Rossellini and many other famous celebrities.
