Tel: 631 324 9766's insider take:

Occupying an 18th-century house but kitted out with iPod docks and Blu-ray players, the Mill House Inn's ten individually decorated rooms strike an easy balance of old and new. Two suites in an annex have fireplaces and bathrooms big enough to ride a bike in: The nautical red-white-and-blue America's Cup Suite has a gas fireplace and a private deck, while the Captain's Quarters are furnished with a leather sofa and Asian antiques, including a 200-year-old mah-jongg table inlaid with ivory. Rooms in the main inn are equally plush; the Patrick Lynch Room, named for a previous owner of the house, has reclaimed-wood tables crafted in nearby Sag Harbor and a fantastic view of the Old Hook Windmill. (Five of the rooms are dog-friendly.) The breakfast menu takes slightly longer to read than the local newspaper—try the crayfish and andouille étouffée omelet, and heed the menu's warning about portion size. Though it's just a minute's walk from the center of East Hampton, the place has a calming quiet about it. Innkeepers Gary and Sylvia Muller, transplants who opted out of big-city life, are waiting with a warm welcome (and often a fresh batch of cookies).—Updated by Darrell Hartman
