About Elizabeth Main

I lived in NYC for 30 years and then one day it was time to come to the Hamptons. I have loved living here for the last 24years.

The beaches are great, any time of year, and they are so close, it could be a walk or a short drive through the magnificent estate section. The town has everything and I love all the shops and restaurants, owners are friendly and we have great access to the wonderful wineries here.

Come out and you will see what I mean,

once you have tasted the lifestyle out here you will for be sure to come back for more.

Elizabeth Main purchased this chateau / country house in 1992

Why Elizabeth Main chose Hamptons

A 200 year old historical home. No jacuzzis but lots of charm on one acre property and close to the ocean. Inground salt water pool, eat in kitchen, front porch and back yard patio. All bed rooms have a private bath, a/c, comfortable beds and wifi. Minutes to ocean and to shopping in the village with world class restaurants and shopping.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

While here you can walk, ride a bike and of course drive to the beaches. Wineries are great, restaurants all good and better. The people that come out to the hamptons all bring a special something with them to add to the mix. The villages are all about 10 minutes apart so there are many places to visit and see.

The perfect home for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mainstay the last four days in July for my brother's wedding. I had family coming in from out of town and we were looking for a home that could accommodate all of us, while also giving us the space and privacy we needed to sleep and get ready. The Mainstay was the absolute perfect house for this. Perhaps I'm a softy for old homes, but the character and charm of this house was beyond my expectations. It was decorated beautifully with plenty of places for us to gather, eat, talk, or relax. The kitchen was much bigger than it looked in the pictures, and had a nice long table for us to enjoy breakfast together. The outdoor pool was wonderful, and separated by a gate that allowed for some peace of mind with my two young boys. They really enjoyed swimming and playing on the flamingo raft. I think the best thing about this house is the fact that it has more than enough bathrooms and hot water for everyone. We had 13 people (plus 2 small kids) and there was ample room for all of us. The fact everyone could get ready for the wedding in their own space and bathroom was wonderful. The home is also a very short distance from town which made it convenient to have lunch or shop around when there was downtime. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a family gathering. Felt like a home away from home.
