Mill House Inn Snow

Mill House Inn Snow

I previously wrote about "Winter's Tale” by Mark Helprin. The movie, starring Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe, Will Smith & William Hurt, is premiering on Valentines Day - my choice of a perfect Valentine!Home Sweet Home  East Hampton NY in the Snow

Recently I read another book by Mark Helprin, "In Sunlight and in Shadow." Another wonderful romantic novel, much of it set in East Hampton in the late '40s. It seems a lot has remained unchanged out here… and that’s a very good thing!

Valentines Day is coming soon, and NOAA is predicting a dusting of snow....

There is something so romantic about snow in East Hampton Village.

Awakening in your suite at the Mill House Inn under a quilt of white down…

The cars in the parking lot covered with snow and that suites you just fine, every destination that comes to mind is a pleasant walk away...

Sipping a hot chocolate-laced Baby’s XXX coffee, brewed just for you while your Personal Assistant reserved your movie tickets and secured your dinner reservations for the evening.

Browse for that new novel at Bookhampton; window shop at Ralph Lauren & Restoration Hardware and admire your reflection in the window at Vered Gallery.

The swans "in residence” at Town Pond admire their reflections in the almost frozen water… while children await a deep freeze, ice skates in hand…

Then on to Main Beach. Straight ahead is the awe-inspiring Atlantic. Turn right or left and you can walk forever on frozen sand...

But it's time to turn around for a warming cocktail at Rowdy Hall before your movie… A very short stroll from your suite to dinner at East Hampton Grill and then home to the Mill House; cozy in front of your fireplace with your new book.

Seems your car keys were turned in to lost and found, and someone swept off your car… Don’t you love a day lost to a dream of romance and snow?

Happy Valentines Day!
