When thinking about a unique experience for your upcoming vacation, there’s no better place to stay than at a bed and breakfast. These small inns open their doors to you like you are family coming to stay a few nights with your relatives. In contrast to hotels, B&Bs are often more personal since staff are accommodating only a few families.
Here are just a few of the many places in New York that provide these experiences.
A Butler’s Manor
244 N Main St., Southampton, NY
Coined as “The Hamptons B&B,” this house is at the center of one of the most popular towns on Long Island. A Butler’s Manor has five rooms to choose from, including new king-sized rooms, and a pool to relax by. While the inn itself is a cozy place to stay put, the staff will help recommend things to do in the area, including going down to the beautiful beaches on the south shore. Luckily, the home is in walking distance of many attractions throughout the Hamptons.
25 Orrs Mills Rd., Salisbury Mills, NY
