Pros: Owner was very nice.
Room was far too hot, bed was rock hard and previous day's wet towels were "provided' to us on the second day.

Nice weekend getawayPosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a nice stay at the Shearwater. Hosts were friendly and the breakfast was good. The sitting/ breakfast room was bright and airy. Altogether very pleasant. My only recommendation would be softer beds.

Quiet Bed and Breakfast off the beaten pathPosted Jul 19, 2013
Cons: Just two things. A bigger, brighter sign out front and a little music at breakfast.
Location: Only about 20-25 minutes from Southampton. Plenty of seafood restaurants overlooking the water with outdoor dining. Great lobster dinner specials.
Quiet bed and breakfast at the gateway to the Hamptons. A little off the beaten path but a short drive to all area beaches and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and beach chairs and umbrellas are provided along with a parking pass to a lot of the area beaches. Parking pass was key as some of the beaches charge upwards of $40 to park for the day. Overall an excellent experience. Sunset at The Dockers was spectacular along with a delicious dinner.

Not worth the moneyPosted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: Quality of the room.
Cons: Staff responsiveness to guests' needs.
Location: Near the beach.
Room & private bath were beautiful -clean, beautifully decorated, with comfortable bed. Bath had Jacuzzi tub. However,our room wasn't made up nor did we get clean towels the 2nd night. When I asked the only person I could find why, I was told that he had to go out & didn't have time after 11:30, when he had knocked on our door. We left the room at 12:15, returned for 45 min. at 2:45 & then were gone until after 11pm. It seems as if somewhere during that time, someone could have made the bed & provided fresh towels. We did not have the included breakfast, but from what we saw it was nothing special - Entenmann's doughnuts & coffee cake, nothing home made. For the price, we expected much more. We've stayed at other B & B's that were less expensive, but had staffs that were much more responsive to their guests' needs & where the food served was a point of pride, not just something thrown together from the grocery store.

perfect for romantic weekend.Posted Jun 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
There are very few choices for inns or hotels in this area, and the Shearwater exceeeded our expectations. Very, very clean, relatively spacious rooms, gracious proprietors, very good breakfast.

Good stay in the HamptonsPosted Aug 21, 2012
Pros: Well run in all respects
Cons: Sign on the road is hard to read - we passed it by the first time. Cost seemed a little high, but we do not know what the comparables are
Location: A little difficult to find - it is in the middle of a neighborhood of private homes and off the main highways
very friendly and helpful innkeepers - fine stay in all regards

Very Charming and Comfortable!Posted Jul 19, 2011 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay very much. Maureen was very friendly, accommodating, and offered many great tips about the area. The location is nice since it really is a gateway to the Hamptons area and the common area and our room was very clean and tastefully decorated. We had a little issue with the coolness in our room but Maureen was helpful in trying to resolve the issue. The breakfasts were very tasty and the cool drinks and snacks throughout the day are a nice touch. We look forward to coming back again soon!
