Overview

The Review

The Elizabethan-style building at 181 Main Street, East Hampton, is one of the longest-occupied homes in the U.S., and opened as an inn in 2005. Opposite East Hampton Green, with a Moroccan-inspired spa, fireside chaise longues and dreamy Arts and Crafts–style bedooms, it’s a perennially popular weekend spot for couples and older families.

The building dates back to 1648, but adopted its current English manor veneer in the early 1900s. In the entrance hall, wood-paneled walls, mismatched sofas and chairs, vintage ceramic tiles, and a roaring fire set a welcoming tone that continues into the formal living room, with its grand piano and perfectly puffed armchairs. {“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3211/prop-29917-1351181845-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The huge, individually designed bedrooms all have real fireplaces and garden or green views.”}A spread of up-to-date fashion and finance magazines (the staff knows its guests well) and tourist pamphlets are about the only hints that this isn’t your private Hamptons pad. Even the bar operates on the honor system, and guests are given a door code for entry after hours.

Upstairs (reached via a Colonial Revival staircase that would make Elizabeth Bennet swoon), the guestrooms overlook the road and East Hampton Green or the idyllic one-acre split-level gardens. Each room is individually designed, but the period accents are present throughout, from dark oak-paneled walls and upholstered sleigh beds to heavy floral drapes and, best of all, real working fireplaces. The bathrooms in King Rooms at the back of the house have modern Jacuzzi tubs and separate showers, while those in Queen Rooms are smaller but have gorgeous clawfoot bathtubs and period sinks. All are stocked with lovely L’Occitane products and soft, embroidered robes.

There’s no restaurant, but breakfast (fruit, granola, yogurt, tasty huevos rancheros and more) is served in the low-ceilinged dining room overlooking the gardens, and sweet and savory snacks are left out for guests every afternoon. All the café and restaurant options in East Hampton are a short walk away, and the staff can recommend foodie destinations within driving distance.

But guests at Baker House 1650 rarely stray far. The downstairs open-plan spa has just two beds and a small pool, so couples book the entire space for a day of pampering in private. And in the winter, rooms are stocked with bundles of logs so you can start a roaring fire, soak in the Jacuzzi or claw-foot tubs, or nab a stack of magazines and get back into bed.

Such a magical place! The rooms are luxuriously appointed. The staff is warm and welcoming, yet the ultimate in professionalism. The spa is enchanting and the banana bread is not to be beat! Cannot wait to return, hopefully for a longer visit this time.

The Best Spa in The Hamptons!!!
MikeAgnello

I was searching for a hotel in the Hamptons with a spa and found the most luxurious place - The Baker House 1650. I have never been to a nicer hotel that has a full service spa. The property is so charming has some of the best breakfasts, this is THE ONLY place I will stay when I come on vacation to Long Island!!

An amazing escape

My stay at the Baker House was amazing. It's a beautiful, nature-filled escape from Manhattan. The property is gorgeous and dead silent. Staff was super attentive. And for someone who isn't a big breakfast person, the food was so good. My girlfriend and I got an awesome couples massage in their spa. That is probably my favorite part of the property. A must go to
