Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

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.

I should start off by saying, I don't like small spaces. So with that said, some of the rooms here are larger than others, but most are fairly small. If you are an Inn goer, they are fine, but if you tend to not stay in Inn's get ready. Other than that, the quality, service, and food are excellent here. I doubt there is anywhere better to stay in East Hampton.

This beautiful old house was built in the 1640's and each room is unique in size and decor. We are happy to discuss the different rooms when you book by telephone or if you prefer to book online, the square footage of each room is on The 1770 House website.
Thank you for taking time in your day to write kind words about the quality, service and food at The 1770 House!

My husband and I spent our Anniversary weekend at the 1770 House. We could not have hoped for a more perfect place to stay. Our room, with a private detached bath was absolutely perfect. It was bright, cheery and warm. The bed was oh so comfy. They supply robes and slippers as well. We also had a very large flat screen TV. The bath had luxurious Molten Brown bath products.
The complimentary breakfast that is included is spectacular. You order off a menu but are not limited to how many things you may order. Everything was hot, fresh and quite tasty. It is served in the same dining room as the 1770 House Restaurant. which is beautiful.
On our first day at breakfast, the Innkeeper, Randye, introduced herself and gave us many options of things to do, including passes and literature. It filled our 2 days quite nicely. She made sure that we experienced The Hamptons to its fullest. She was the perfect host.
The Inn is in the heart of East Hampton. We are already discussing when we will be able to return. This will always be our first go to when visiting The Hamptons.

I have to admit I never write reviews, however, our 3-night getaway over New Year's 2013 was worth talking about! My fiance and I were looking for a great getaway and decided on the 1770 House after reading all the great reviews! I had often passed the inn during summers in the Hamptons but never stayed there. We are so happy we did. The innkeeper, Randye Lordon, was absolutely fantastic. Before our arrival she was keen to check on us to ensure we were set for dinners and winter activities since we usually visit in the summers. Upon arrival, she was such a great hostess and helped us get situated with activities and hikes around the Hamptons as we arrived early and our room was not ready. From check-in to check-out Randye was so friendly, personable, and accommodating. The rooms were fabulous with the most comfortable beds and linens (Frette) and amazing Molten Brown products. We stayed in two different rooms based on avails and both were lovely and unique. In our second room (room1) we had a huge fireplace and it was a nice way to relax from the craziness of the city. Beyond the rooms, the breakfast was top notch including omelettes, fresh fruit, homemade muffins, and smoked salmon. Loved it all. We had such a great three days and look forward to returning for another stay and to just say hello to the wonderful people! Whitney & Maarten

My wife and I were out looking for a New Years weekend that we could spend away from the city. We were met with fantastic service by the friendliest staff. Everything was flawless, from the room (#4) with the cozy fireplace to the restaurant which we had amazing dinner. The room itself was extremely clean and tidy and newly decorated and/or renovated. It was so quaint, as was the inn, and comfortable, we really felt right in our own home. You really would be missing out to stay in the hamptons and not stay here.

We've been going to the 1770 House at least once or twice a year for about 6 or 7 years now and absolutely love it there. We aren't summer Hamptons people at all, and prefer it during the winter/spring months as it is much quieter and just as beautiful. 1770 house is quaint luxury at its best. Somehow it manages to be both cozy and luxurious at the same time. The inn is fairly small - 6 rooms plus a carriage house. All the rooms are beautifully appointed - very classic luxury with frette towels and linens and molton brown toiletries. The rooms are always immaculate - super clean, its a place you don't feel like you have to wear slippers - even though they provide them for you, of course.

Your stay also includes one of the most delicious breakfasts ever- a hot menu for the weekends (think pancakes, omelette, french toast), and a continental meal for the weekdays. But rest assured - by continental we aren't just talking toast. We are talking delicious lox and bagels, fruit, hamptons coffee, the works! It's certainly unlike any continental breakfast I've had anywhere!

The best part of 1770 house though is the inn keeper - Randi. She is amazing - super warm and welcoming. We've been coming for so many years and are simply thrilled she is back at the 1770 house. She always makes it feel like a home away from home (if only my home was this wonderful!) She has helpful suggestions for things to do and places to eat, and helps keep everything organized so as a guest you don't even have to pick up the phone. She makes you feel at ease, and I already feel the difference at the inn since she's been back - it's just warmer - subtle but there.

I highly recommend the 1770 house for a weekend getaway when you just need some peace and quiet outside of the city - it is a place to go and relax and be pampered. It's in prime location, close to everything - food, wineries, shopping, beach, spas....but our favorite thing is to take the quick drive (or you can definitely walk) to Main Beach. In the winter it is so quiet and secluded - it feels even more beautiful. Simply lovely!

We will certainly keep coming back...

Room Tip: We love Room 5 - the bathroom is outside of the room, but it's really no problem. It feels tota...

My family & I have vacationed for the past two years at the 1770's Carriage House & we adore it. The staff is charming. The housekeeping crew does immaculate work & they do everything within their power to ensure a delightful holiday experience.

While this Inn certainly does not qualify as budget or moderate lodging I think they provide an excellent value considering their location & level of service. The carriage house is perfect for 2 couples or a small family, having 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms in a 2 story cottage. Cozy living room/dining area with fireplace & a complete kitchenette (sink, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave) complete the first floor layout. Furnishings are well maintained, comfortable & all the rooms are decorated in a simple neutral palette.

Additionally, the restaurant & bar attached to the 1770 House is excellent & there is nothing cozier or more enjoyable than a nightcap in their underground bar. (Please be advised there are very steep semi circular steps leading to the bar area.) Breakfast consists of a small thoughtful menu; coffee from Hamptons coffee - delicious.

The Manager is a hoot; down to earth with a terrific sense of humor & really knows the area well. She provided us with just the right suggestions for local sites, shopping & restaurants.

We are in love.
