Beachy style and a low-key attitude make for relaxation at this pretty retreat.
Sultry summer days call for breezy beach getaways, and for New York City residents, that means a trip to the Hamptons. Peeking out from a hilltop populated with Victorian cottages, The Chequit offers soothing R&R when summer sizzles. The whitewashed property’s 37 airy guest rooms and suites are a breath of fresh ocean air, sprawling across three buildings that date back to the 1800s.
All accommodations have been renovated to spoil guests with cozy creature comforts such as original antiques, mini-fridges, high-end linens and C.O. Bigelow bath products. The historic Summer House provides more privacy and space, along with its own barefoot charm. A rustic daily breakfast made from seasonal ingredients is included in all stays, available through room service, in the quaint lobby or al fresco on the front porch. The White Hill Café stocks Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee and pastries from Baked in NYC, and the Red Maple celebrates tasty local harvests and seafood in a country-chic setting. Before you leave, browse the designer-sourced wares at on-site Salt Supply gift shop, where you’re sure to find a memorable souvenir to take home.
