Romantic East Hampton getaway, with manicured gardens, classic coastal decor and a sun-drenched porch
A night at The Hedges Inn is a bit like a sleepover in a P.G. Wodehouse novel — just bring your own Jeeves. Built by William Hedges in the 1600s, the building that stands today dates to the 19th-century and is the only original boarding house in East Hampton. Inside, coastal chic decor blends with the inn's historic charm; think white-washed brick accent walls, beige furnishings and seashell-print throws in coral, lime green and navy blue. Well-manicured gardens and grounds surround the intimate property, and there’s an air of relaxation that belies its proximity to tony East Hampton.
Bed & Bath
Following a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2008, the 12 elegant guestrooms are done up in a soothing palette of pale blues and greens, with seagrass carpeting and decorative fireplaces. Rooms have air conditioning for the hot summer months, plus welcome modern comforts including WiFi and flat-screen TVs. The petite bathrooms are done up with white tiles and marble and come stocked with luxe amenities.
The sun-drenched front porch offers the perfect vantage point from which to watch swans gliding across the village pond, and entry to the expansive, tulip-filled gardens (with two private patios). The serene setting soon makes you forget you're only a half-mile away from boutique- and restaurant-filled East Hampton, and the innkeeper is always on hand with insider recommendations.
In the Area
Visit the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in nearby Springs, where artist Jackson Pollock lived and worked, for the chance to see some of Pollock’s works in the house where he lived and the barn studio where he painted them. Or take a short drive from The Hedges Inn to Guild Hall for a year-round slate of plays, concerts, readings, films, special events and art exhibitions. There’s no restaurant onsite, so ask for a recommendation or opt for the Tuscan farmhouse feel and inventive Italian fare at Nick & Toni’s. For a retail fix, stroll down Main Street and shop Ralph Lauren in its natural habitat at the East End Polo flagship. If you’re all prepped out, John Varvatos, Blue & Cream and Elie Tahari are all nearby.
