Neil Diamond once said: “When you’re on a merry-go-round, you miss a lot of the scenery.” Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that writers, painters, and other artists often choose to slow down at the aptly named vacation rental "Inspiration Point" in Southampton. From the first rays of sunrise to starry night skies, Inspiration Point showcases the epitome of jaw-dropping scenery—complete with a full water view from every room.
Built on the Southampton Shinnecock Hills, the property’s open floor plan includes a living room with cathedral ceilings and an elegant dining area. A well-outfitted kitchen with granite counter tops and high bar top is ideal for serving drinks and visiting with friends and family while crafting meals.
Inspiration Point’s magic comes full circle outside, where exterior features make it easy to spend the day taking in the view. Jump in the pool for a lazy afternoon swim and sink into the outdoor hot tub overlooking the secluded yard beyond. Wander the private walkway to the bay below or kick back to take it all in from the gorgeous over-the-water, blue stone deck.
The four bathrooms (plus outdoor shower) and four bedrooms — two with queen-sized beds, one with two twins, and one sun-room that is convertible to a bedroom with a single sleeper sofa — comfortably accommodate seven guests. Expect to find wood floors, comfortable-yet-stylish furniture, and lots of windows letting in natural light throughout. This property is great for fishing and includes rigs for Shinnecock calms.
Should you wish to sneak away for an afternoon or evening, Southampton isn’t too far away—just over 5 miles—with a variety of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment on offer. Or slip into your flip-flops and hit Ponquogue Beach, also just over 5 miles away (about a 15-minute drive).
Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect words, hope to hear music on the sea breeze, need the perfect visual backdrop, or simply seek to jump off the merry-go-round of life, Inspiration Point delivers.
