7 of Our Favorite Hotels for Every Hamptons Scenario
Sure, vacation cottages have their perks (hello, private pool), but hotels have cozy rooms, cocktail bars and room service (plus, you never have to make your own bed). Whether you’re looking for a classic Hamptons experience, a romantic weekend getaway or a place for the whole family, the East End has a luxe lodging option for you.
FOR A VACATION WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY: BARON'S COVE
Ever walked into a hotel and thought, I wish my home looked like this? That’s Baron’s Cove. The rooms, which face either Sag Harbor Village or the harbor itself, are charmingly nautical and particularly spacious as far as hotel rooms go. With an on-site pool and restaurant and a location that’s only a short walk from town, there’s plenty to keep everyone in the family happy with a minimum amount of fuss. There are even accommodations for your dog.

For a timeless Hamptons experience: The Maidstone Hotel
Lavender Adirondack chairs dotting the lawn, stylish rooms you can Instagram from every angle, exclusive film, fashion and music events: This is the Maidstone Hotel, aka what you unwittingly picture when you think of the quintessential Hamptons hotel. (And in this case, you definitely can’t improve on a classic.)

When you want the party to come to you: The Montauk Beach Club or Solé East Resort
We don’t have to tell you that Montauk is the “It” party scene of the Hamptons, from the daytime pool parties to the nightlife. Check in to Solé East Resort for a Saint-Tropez–style beach club experience, complete with a heated pool, bungalow-like rooms and a poolside DJ. Want to be a little closer to town? The Montauk Beach House is a block from the ocean and a short stroll to Montauk’s shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. During the day you’ll find a pool-party vibe that chills out at night.
FOR A GIRLS' WEEKEND: THE BAKER HOUSE 1650
Tucked into East Hampton Village, this charming bed-and-breakfast was made for a girls’ weekend. Start each day with a full breakfast, then relax in the swoon-worthy on-site spa with massages or facials, or lounge by the pool or at one of the nearby beaches thanks to the complimentary beach passes.

The best place to get away from it all: A Room At The Beach
Hidden away in Bridgehampton, this tranquil oasis will cure whatever ails you. Take a dip in the pool, relax in the garden or walk or bike into Bridgehampton. You’ll never want to check out of the dreamy ten-room property, which was once owned by both Martha Stewart and Donna Karan.

For a romantic getaway: Inn at Windmill Lane
The dreamy Inn at Windmill Lane has all the makings for a quiet weekend with your S.O. Rooms here are pricy, but for good reason: When you depart the train, a hotel staff member in an SUV will deliver you to the inn, where you’ll find your room stocked with your choice of groceries and wine. Spend your stay strolling hand in hand through the private gardens or walking around laid-back Amagansett, known for its good eats and charming shops.
