Off-season tranquility: The Southampton Inn

In the off-season, devoid of summer socialites, Long Island’s east end recaptures the appeal of its past, as a string of quaint villages and fishing towns.

One property catering to groups is the 90-room Southampton Inn. The renovated venue, with 5,580 square feet of meeting space, has welcomed corporate clients from New York City who choose to meet closer to home.

Southampton village is tiny and lively, but the outdoors is the area’s biggest attraction. Visitors can go birding, whale watching or fishing. Captain Ken Turco is a longtime local who handily chases schools of fish so participants won’t go home without a catch.

Event venues include the Parrish Museum, which hosts 500 inside, amid the art, and 2,000 outdoors.
