Romantic East Hampton getaway, with manicured gardens, classic coastal decor and a sun-drenched porch

The Look

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.

Exceeding Expectations

Jenn & Marcus make a great location into a terrific experience. A very comfortable and spacious room. After five pm, an honor bar downstairs. Pick your poison - first drink on the house. Plenty of bicycles for rides into town or down to the beach. A lovely breakfast buffet (pastries, fruit, granola, etc) supplemented with a choice of two different prepared breakfast entrees. Nothing typical. Jenn's title of Inn Manager & Executive Chef is spot on.
This was our first trip to the Hamptons and the Hedges Inn was perfectly located. Close to downtown, close to the beach and not far to Montauk Point & Sag Harbor. An idyllic sojourn in early June.

It was as I imaginened it to be in the picture!

Road trip with my son. First night. Very old house turned into a hotel. Athmosphere like it should be. Very friendly couple who runned it. Her family name was Finnish! Top quality breakfast. Beautuiful garden around and covered big and cosy terass

The Hedges Inn is beautiful historic bed and breakfast in East Hampton where our son was married to his adorable bride. Unfortunately it was a very rainy week leading up the weekend but a special thanks to the inn keepers Marcus and Jenny, who had their landscapers working to replace the weather beaten tulips the day before. What a beautiful setting they created for this special day!
It was wonderful to have family and friends able to stay at the Hedges for the weekend to celebrate together. The only thing that would have made it more perfect was better weather, but in spite of the rainy day it was a delightful day! The attention to detail, the food and service was exactly what we hoped for. We received many compliments from the guests that it was one of the best weddings they ever attended.
I would highly recommend staying at this lovely home and it certainly is a wonderful setting for a wedding. Thank you Marcus and Jenny for helping to make our son’s weekend very special!

This place is such a hidden gem. The rooms are gorgeous and updated, the service is spectacular, and the grounds are so pretty. The location is great too and allows easy access to the beach, town, and train. Thank you for an amazing stay guys. I’m just bummed I couldn’t extend!

The Hedges is a beautiful place to spend your get-away time. It's located just outside town which is quiet and out of the hustle and bustle of traffic.
There are bicycles to borrow to ride into town or just feel free to walk to town. The rooms are up-to-date, cozy, and finely appointed. The staff is exceptional - friendly, willing to help in any way possible, and eager to make your stay perfect. I would highly recommend staying at this Inn. We had a wedding here and it was great to have the place to ourselves. We rented all 13 rooms at a great off-season rate. Marcus and his wife, who run the show, are friendly and great hosts. Excellent!!
