“Great Stay at The Hedges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Ann and Carol are lovely at the Hedges, nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were very comfortable it was just like being at home! The breakfast's are a highlight very inventive and leave you enthralled as to what will be on the chalkboard the next morning when you arrive for breakfast. I have stayed several times over the last 5 years and can't think of any reason not to stay anytime I am in the area. I can't recommend The Hedges Inn enough warm, friendly and sooooo relaxing!!

Ann, Carol and Courtney, our hosts at the Inn, are officially my new best friends! My husband and I needed a long weekend away from the city and sought out The Hedges Inn in East Hampton. Literally, from the moment we entered the Inn's doors we were greeted with nostalgia from the Inn's old world charm. But don't be confused, there is nothing stodgy about the decor. It is the perfect blend between history and striking new furniture design out of a design magazine. The downstairs sitting area had fluffy pillows, charming coffee table books, a warm fuzzy blankets. Although a TV was available we didn't want the interruption when we had a peaceful view of geese swimming in the pond and surrounding gardens. The two-room Sea Horse Suite was incredibly charming. If delightful hamlet of East Hampton was not outside the door we probably would have spent most of our day lounging in bed or sitting in the plush rocking chair while reading my Kindle. Since the room had a mini kitchen, our bottles of vino collected while visiting the local vineyards were kept at perfect temperature for pre-dinner toasts. The mornings brought a welcome treat of breakfast. Since we have access to New York City's plethora of restaurants, we consider ourselves to be food snobs. When we entered the dining lounge the first morning we were greeted with the chalk board of the fresh breakfast special. As if the breakfast special was not enough, the buffet table was overflowing with fresh fruits, pastries, yogurts, hard boiled eggs, juices and coffee. To add to the presentation, these goodies were all surrounded by fresh cut flowers from the Inn's very own garden. Within minutes from being seated Carol came over to offer the buffet table and explain the morning breakfast special. She suggested we pace ourselves and save room for what was to come. Before we could finish our first cup of coffee she presented us with the best breakfast I have ever eaten...really! (I posted images below). If I were a NY Times food critic Chef Ann Clarke would become my regular "go-to" source for recipes and restaurant reviews. I am still trying to figure out that secret ingredient in her "Salmon Brie Souffle." We are totally obsessed with the Hedges Inn and can not wait for our next trip out this fall.

Going above and beyond would be an understatement for The Hedges Inn. Ann and her staff were remarkable. The Hedges Inn provides the ideal location for a two day getaway to the Hamptons. The Inn itself is absolutely gorgeous down to the relaxing music that is played. The Hedges is so well kept by the fantastic staff and team of The Hedges, Ann was absolutely gorgeous and such a breath a fresh air to see every day. If you are looking for a place to stay I highly suggest you check out The Hedges Inn. I will be back to visit again soon!

From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. It was as though I was staying with my rich parents! I'm 26 years old and it was just the perfect place for me and my family. The grounds are beautiful and it was so relaxing. Also walking distance to the beach. The breakfasts are not to be missed either - so yummy! I definitely recommend staying here!

Ann, Courtney and the entire staff couldn't have made our experience any better! We were taken care of with smiles, humor and a professionalism that I find rare these days. The rooms were clean, the food delicious and the location of The Hedges is ideal for anyone visiting East Hampton. It was so pleasant and my only regret was that I was not staying longer. Can't wait to go back!

Oh, my aren't you sweet! We have a few more changes in mind for The Hedges...OK let's call them improvements...we just always want to be stepping up the game. I cannot tell you how much the entire team here at the inn enjoyed having your group in residence. Every day was sunshine. Thank you for the review, it was very much appreciated.

I have nothing but huge PRAISE for the The Hedges Inn!

The location in East Hampton was great -- close to Main Beach and shopping -- and the staff (especially Ann) was a true delight. The breakfasts were delicious, esecially the housemade pastries and the patio was a great place to lounge and enjoy afternoon tea.

It definitely felt like home! We are for sure booking again next summer (if not sooner!)

Our lemon/mint water is a hit this summer with all of the guests and I am glad you enjoyed it enough to write about it! It is such a pleasure every morning to walk outside with my basket a clip the days herbs. Thank you for being with us, thank you for warming the dining room with your early in the day million watt smile.
