With its prime location just off of Montauk highway in Watermill, White Fences Inn has quickly become the sought after bed and breakfast destination. Set in the heart of the Hamptons, White Fences Inn boasts five luxurious rooms: three guest rooms and two suites. Owned by Eric and Liz Brodar along with their adorable puppy dog, Bailey, they first opened White Fences in July of 2015. After the finishing touches on the historic home’s addition were complete on September 15th 2015, the three additional guest rooms were ready for guests (Little Cobb, Mecox, and Halsey Suite). Each room offers a modern gas fireplace, private bathroom with a shower, soaking tubs in all but one bathroom, heated floor, flat screen TV, complimentary WiFi, high end Malin & Goetz toiletries, Frette & Matouk linens, robes and slippers, hairdryer, and central air conditioning with individual controls. The inn is within walking distance to the Watermill Hampton Jitney stop, the beaches, museums, fitness studios, and boutique shops.
“We knew we wanted to come to New York and be by the water,” explains Liz Brodar. “We grew up here and our family grew up in New York, and we knew we wanted to offer something more upscale in the sense of style [as] most inns are older and traditional.”
The property and house where White Fences Inn is now located was originally for sale during the recession in 2010. The Brodars went to Maine and bought an existing bed and breakfast in the Kennebunks and completed a full restoration. The price had dropped on the Watermill location, and they made the purchase and relocated to the East End.
For breakfast, I enjoyed a sweet-inspired three course menu, including a Nutella Banana Nut, muffin, Ricotta Cream with Berries and a Balsamic Reduction, and Brûlée Baked Oatmeal with Candied Bacon paired with freshly brewed coffee and orange juice. The menu switches daily from savory to sweet, and always accommodates all dietary needs and requests. Other menu items include Orange Cardamom French Toast, Eggs Benedict on a Crab Cake with Lemon Butter Sauce, Blueberry Scones, Zucchini Bread, a Breakfast Pita Sandwich with Mascarpone Cheese Spread, Prosciutto, Arugula, Fried Egg, and Dressing on top, Zucchini Frittatas, Berry Baked Oatmeal, and a Breakfast Sundae with Greek Yogurt, Walnuts, and Honey. Complimentary tea and coffee is served throughout the day. I love the pretty tea impression as you walk in. Coffee comes from Maine: Coffee By Design. Eric is a coffee drinker, Liz is a tea drinker. You are even welcome to enjoy your breakfast in your robe and slippers.
“A chef stay here for five days, while he worked at an estate,” says Liz Brodar. “The last day he checked out he had breakfast, and enjoyed the crab cake with arugula. He said, ‘the next year if I need any help, I am taking Liz with me.’ Cooking is what really drew me to opening a bed and breakfast. I have always been into food. My ideas are always blossoming. I read a lot of food blogs, magazines, and watch cooking shows for inspiration.”
When people arrive, there are cookies in the room, and the refrigerator is filled with complimentary beverages. In addition to these notable amenities, complimentary beach passes will be offered for the upcoming summer, and the inn currently provides guests with wine tastings at Wölffer Estate Vineyard and passes to Parrish Art Museum.
