“A Wonderful Winter Get Away in the Hamptons”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

My boyfriend and I were looking for a short weekend get away outside of the city and were very happy to come across the 1708 House. I made the reservation over the phone and was given a great deal of information about my room options from the inn keeper. We informed them that we would be checking in quite late and this didn't seem to be a problem.

We took a train in from the city and arrived in Southampton around 11:00 pm. There were taxis available at the station, but we opted to walk the half mile down the main drag to the house. The house was warm and welcoming and we found our check in materials waiting for us. We took it upon ourselves to go for a late night tour of the house and were very impressed with the space and the cleanliness. Every room is decorated with antique furniture, paintings, wall hangings and bric-a-brac. There are neat little rooms to be discovered on each floor and the basement is a complete wine-cellar/game room. The dining room is wonderfully decorated (photo attached) and the breakfast staff (John) was available to make eggs your way. We were able to sit and enjoy the dining room over books and crossword puzzles and we never felt rushed or crowded.

The room itself (Room 1-main house) was awesome. We had a bathroom, sitting room and large bedroom; the bed was very comfortable. The rooms have exposed walls and ceilings, adding to the charm of the house.

The main house is located close to "Downtown" and many restaurants and shops are easily within a 5 to 10 minute walk. We walked (around 20 minutes) to the beach and enjoyed a wonderful winter day with the surf.

Having never been to Long Island before (or the Hamptons), I am not sure how to rate the B&B price wise which is why I rated it as "average".

If you get a chance to get away to the Hamptons, this B&B is a wonderful place to relax and see the sights.

Cheers and Enjoy!

The entire experience was delightful. There was such attention to detail. The owner/employees were so welcoming. The wine/tea as a welcome was wonderful after a long ride. The breakfast was to order and delicious. It is a very comfortable place and the history shared was spectacular. It is a very relaxing environment. We will definitely return and we heartily recommend it.

Room Tip: Our daughter, husband and grandkids stayed in a cottage. My husband and I shared an upstairs room...

My husband, ten year old son and I stayed at the 1708 house on Thankgiving night. We stayed in Room #2 which was a two bedroom suite with a private bathroom. We drove out Thanksgiving morning, arrived around 1:30pm and our room was ready. My husband and son were relaxing when I went down to look around. There was a lovely "tea" set up which included wine cheese and other goodies. I poured a glass of wine and went upstairs to a sitting area by a window that overlooks the town/street. I could not have been more relaxed. I also chatted with LInda who was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms in general were very cozy. The next morning we went downstairs to read the papers and have breakfast. John and Linda made us a hot breakfast, eggs for my son and an omelette for my husband. I enjoyed the yogurt and cereal that were available at the breakfast bar. We walked around the town, just steps away, before checking out. I really cannot wait to go back. Next time, we will stay in one of the cottages.

Room Tip: We loved Room 2!

My wife and I were here for our honeymoon in Oct '13. We fell in love with the place and the staff. Linda was very informative and helpful. Anything we needed she readily assisted with. We will definitely be coming back in the future. We highly recommend it to anyone.

We have stayed at the 1708 House several times and have always had a wonderful experience. The accommodations are clean and spacious (in particular, room 9). We also enjoy the complimentary wine and snack in the afternoon after a long day out enjoying the beautiful East end of Long Island. The breakfast is also very nice. Be sure to check out the Wine Cellar too and play a game of chess or checkers! Overall, it's a wonderful place.

This bed and breakfast is so cute and the staff are so nice. The woman who works the front desk is so friendly and took the time to tour the house with us. She recommended restaurants in the area that were really great. The location is excellent, everything is within walking distance. The owner was also very pleasant to talk to. He told stories about the house. The breakfast was perfect to start the day and everyone there was so friendly, which made the stay even better. I highly recommend it.

This is a charming B&B in the perfect location in Southampton. We stayed in Room C in the 21st Century Annex. The rooms and house are definitely old-fashioned, but the bathroom was modern, the bed was comfortable, and the linens were great. Our room was small, but there are lots of common areas to enjoy both inside and out. We especially loved the porch right outside our room. The B&B is at the beginning of main street, so you can easily walk to tons of shops and restaurants. The beach is about a 20 minute walk, so it would be a long way to walk with your beach gear - but they have beach parking passes that you can use. The breakfast was great - they have a nice spread, and make eggs to order. They had a fridge full of water and soda available at all times, which is a really nice touch. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back!
