Best Hotels in Long Island (NY)
An exceptional Hamptons location on five acres of beautifully manicured grounds.
When it comes to recreation, this five-acre pet-friendly estate has it all. It is home to the Southampton Pool and Tennis Club, and activities include everything from volleyball to kayaking to table games. There’s even a toy room for the kids. As for regional pursuits, the most popular is day tripping to wineries and farm stands. The town is rife with old money and has cute shops, a bookstore, a movie theater and a Saks Fifth Avenue. From a distance, the inn looks like a giant classic Colonial. Upon closer inspection, you will see that this isn’t your typical Hamptons’ mansion. The décor is more California than East Coast --- polished and new, with pale-colored furniture and gas fireplaces. The 90 guest rooms are nicely equipped with extras such as complimentary Wi-Fi. The library is nondescript yet comfortable. A 2,200-square-foot ballroom makes this a good venue for corporate gatherings and special events. Claude's restaurant serves classic American fare for indoor and al fresco dining.
