Every summer, New Yorkers trade in one island for another, giving up their natural concrete jungle for the sun-kissed beaches and windswept lawns of the Hamptons. The Hamptons has long served as a warm-weather getaway for the New York elite, and as such has gained a reputation for hosting some iconic hotel and restaurant hotspots that cater to a more sophisticated palette. When hunting down your ideal lodging situation, consider some of these most luxurious hotels for your next journey to the Hamptons.
Housed inside a fully restored 1842 Greek revival mansion, Topping Rose House combines the old with the new in a design concept that offers a feast for the senses. Designed by Alexandra Champalimaud, the Hampton’s first luxury hotel brings guests 22 pristine rooms along with a selection of freestanding cottages. From the art to the cuisine, everything has been given top tier consideration and care at Topping Rose House.
For a taste of historic luxury in the Hamptons, consider staying at The Baker House 1650. Built in the 17th century by one of the area’s founders, this bed and breakfast has beautifully preserved many of the original details such as the cast-iron staircase and exposed wood-beam ceilings. There are plenty of ways to relax at The Baker House as well; take a stroll through the gardens or spend an afternoon at the beach.
While vacationers searching for a lively stay might enjoy Ruschmeyers or The Surf Lodge, those searching for a quieter escape take shelter at the iconic hotel and beach club Gurney’s Montauk Resort. First opened in 1926 along 2,000 feet of private beach, Gurney’s has undergone some massive renovations and promises everything a modern Hampton vacationer could want. Floor to ceiling windows with great views of the ocean, rain showers, and a full spa are just a few of the features that make Gurney’s such a lovely place to stay.
