East Hampton Hotels
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 the in-room iPad docks and flat screens, its beautiful Colonial flourishes—exposed wooden beams, antique fireplace—are perfectly intact. We go for the ever-reliable and delicious burgers at the on-site restaurant.
207 Main St., East Hampton
Longtime owners Jenny and Jonathan Baker have revamped their East Hampton destination hotel this summer. The refreshed design lends a whimsical look to the traditional American aesthetic of the shared rooms, including the bar, lounge, and sun room. We love how each of the nineteen guest rooms are individually designed, making you feel like you're staying at your friend's summerhouse. Replete 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.
