East Hampton Hotels

Establishment neighborhood
EHP Resort & Marina
295 Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Rd., East Hampton
A new hotel opening in the Hamptons is always a big deal. The former East Hampton Point has recently changed ownership and undergone a coastal-themed refresh. With its cottages and suites—complete with balconies, decks, even backyards—EHP is one of the more private properties in the area. Amenities-wise, you’re spoiled for choice: Tennis courts, a well-appointed gym, wellness programming, and water activities. Once you check in, pull on a Frette robe, power up the Vitruvi diffuser, and watch the sun sink into the harbor. Images courtesy of EHP Resort & Marina
1770 House
143 Main St., East Hampton
While it sits steps from East Hampton’s boutique-and-gallery-packed main drag, entering this six-room inn (there’s also a separate two-family carriage house) is a lot like stepping into a time machine. The picket-fenced, whitewashed home has functioned as a hotel since—you guessed it—1770. Alongside modern additions like in-room flat-screen TVs, its beautiful Colonial flourishes—exposed-wooden beams, antique fireplaces—are perfectly intact. We go for the ever-reliable and delicious burgers at the on-site tavern.
The Maidstone
207 Main St., East Hampton
Longtime owners Jenny and Jonathan Baker recently revamped their East Hampton destination hotel. The refreshed design lends a whimsical look to the traditional American aesthetic of the shared rooms, including the bar, lounge, and sunroom. We love how each of the nineteen guest rooms is individually designed, making you feel as if you're staying at your friend's summer house. Complete with a new restaurant from Chef David Strandridge of Cafe Clover, it is hands down an excellent place to visit or stay. Interior photos: Fran Parente.
