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.


Village Latch Shaded Deck
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.

    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.
