In short, this so-called "inn" is a musty dump overcluttered with junky knickknacks. There are charming country bed and breakfasts, and then there are places like this that give country inns a bad name. At rates close to $300/night it was downright obscene (though I would not have stayed for free knowing what I now know). The interior is anachronism defined, a creepy mismatch of all kinds of garbage. There is NO WAY the rooms would ever be mistaken for "light and airy" (as described on the inn's website). Also, no locks on doors, which is very unsettling. Lumpy, old mattress, threadbare sheets, and an icky bathroom completed the "look" (what else would you expect, frankly).
This place is a disgrace to the beautiful town of East Hampton.
Never again at the Bassett House. No way I could recommend this unless you have a burning desire to waste perfectly good money sleeping in a junk-filled attic.
