What's Worth it: c/o The Maidstone

Posted: Updated:

c/o The Maidstone

Why it's worth it: Great location just outside East Hampton town and a 10-15 minute walk or bike/ 2 minute drive to the beach. Style find whilst homey.

In-the-know: All of the rooms are unique, each named after a famous Swedish character (the owner is Swedish!) so do choose which style and size is right for your stay on their website prior to booking.

Activities: Beach walks, jogs, relaxes; stroll East Hampton town and the nearby charming Sag Harbor, visit a South Fork winery, play golf, tennis or learn to surf. The Hamptons has it all.

When and with whom: Summer as a family or as a couple, Autumn I can picture a solo jaunt here for a number of days with a good book and catching a film or two in town.

Be Aware: Rooms facing the street can be loud from traffic in high season.

Food: We absolutely loved breakfast at "The Living Room," their gem of a room towards the back of the property. The freshest of ingredients made with tender loving care. Many Scandinavian specialties on the menu which makes for something different. Rated amongst the top Hamptons Restaurants -- so even if you're not staying here, come for dinner. A supporter of the Slow Food Movement -- hats off to Jenny!

On offer: Yoga classes outside in their garden every weekend, beach chairs & towels with East Hampton beach passes to park the car, cherry red bicycles to borrow, 100% natural and delicious feeling bath range well-stocked in your bathroom + plenty of great books, magazines and DVDs.

Details: 207 Main Street, East Hampton, Long Island NY 11937
