“Lovely B&B and accommodating staff”
Reviewed 23 September 2007

A friend and I decided we needed a getaway for the girls. I booked this place completely by chance. What a find. The inn was absolutely lovely, carefully appointed with comfortable amenities. On the first floor, there are many common areas with huge picture windows looking out onto the manicured lawn, the huge porch, or the huge covered deck. Oh, and two rooms in the common areas have flat screen tv's (as do the rooms).

Our train was delayed arriving into East Hampton, so I called Hedges to let them know that we would be late. Carol, an absolute sweetheart, cheerfully informed me that this would be no problem & that she would wait for us (by now, it was around 9:30). She maintained this cheerful attitude all weekend, and was very informative about the town, where to find what, and how to get there.

We especially appreciated that they gave us beach passes, towels, chairs and an umbrella that Sunday, despite the fact that we had already checked out. They also allowed us to leave our luggage there after checking out while we enjoyed one more day at Main Beach before returning to the city. Probably no big deal, but I read many reviews here where the staff at high end B&B's and inns in the Hamptons are less than accommodating. They couldn't be more accommodating here. It's an easy to walk to town from Hedges, probably 15 minutes if you're a fast walker, and to Main Beach, which is another 10 - 15 minutes in the opposite direction. If not, there are no shortage of car companies willing to take you anywhere.

The continental breakfast is served in a large, sun-filled room with lots of food (belgian waffles, english muffins, fruit, cereal, croissants, muffins, etc.), coffee, tea and juice.

Our room was not large, but it was comfortable. It gave me the feeling that I was in a cozy bedroom at a friend's home. The inn provides huge bath robes and Bulgari bath products. Unless you plan to spend much time there beyond sleeping and showering the room size will probably not be a problem.

Hedges is not cheap by any means, as our room was $350/night. However, you are a short distance from the town center and the beach, and let' face it - it's in East Hampton, a town not exactly known for cheap accommodations. If you're going to East Hampton, you already know what to expect in terms of price range, or at least you should.

Sorry for the long review, but I thought this place was great and couldn't wait to share. I really can't think of a bad thing to say about this place. I'm surprised that there are no reviews of Hedges on this site. Hopefully this is not the last.
