We have stayed at the 1708 House many times over a two year period, so my review is based on multiple visits. Our experience has always been the same. The rooms are clean and very pleasant, and the owners and employees are very friendly and helpful. It's like returning to someone's home you know--- there are always cookies and snacks, wine, and coffee available. Breakfast in the morning is cheerful, fresh, and well presented. We have been there during every season, and always enjoyed the experience. On a cold winter's night, the wine cellar is especially cozy and inviting. I would highly recommend the 1708 House if you are looking for an authentic bed and breakfast experience. It is also very centrally located and convenient to what the Hamptons has to offer.
