My BFF since college, Leslie, and I decided to tack on a weekend getaway to "The Hamptons" at the end of a three day mini vaca to Manhattan. We took the Hampton Jitney with the locals to East Hampton and walked one long block to 1770. It definitely was worth Leslie's hours of research to rule out Mountak and settle on this sweet inn in East Hampton. She know's I am a BG girl and I like to shop. The inn is just a block or so away from Intermix, and the start of luxury boutiques on Main Street. It's also a 1/2 mile from the beach and those gorgeous homes! Besides, being Dutch, it didn't hurt to be across the street from an old windmill. The old addage--" location, location, location"-- is apt here.
The inn is charming with its fresh look, complete with new wicker chairs in the dining room and antiques. Our room was upstairs in the attic, and we loved the twin beds and decor.
This is a foodies' heaven, with a sumptuous complimentary made to order breakfast served in that delightful dining room. The Tavern downstairs is a must, and The Barefoot Contessa is right: who knew meatloaf could be so out of this world?
Most of all, Randye was wonderful. She gave us a ton of maps, directions, advice and sightseeing suggestions everyday. Adam and David, our waiters, also chatted endlessly with us about local wineries, Mountak's lighthouse and
those palatial estates. David graduated from St. John's with a philosophy degree and is destined for Yale Law School. The staff at the inn made our stay very memorable and special.
