The Steinbeck House, newly preserved as a cultural resource through efforts by Southampton Town, private donors, and the academic community, is now open to visitors on Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m., by appointment only.
On the holiday weekends of Labor Day and Columbus Day, the house will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but visits likewise must be scheduled in advance, and those visitors must take a shuttle from Baron's Cove at 31 West Water Street.
Visits are free, about an hour in length, and must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. For regular Saturday visits, parking is available close to the property (though not on the roads leading to the house). Steinbeck's writing gazebo is among the features of the 1.6 acres.
Appointments can be made at steinbeckhouseny.org.
