Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Walking distance to the village, bike ride to the beach (bikes available for free use)
  • Modern, chic Scandinavian design throughout property
  • High-end restaurant and lounge, plus wine cellar
  • Beach parking passes available for each room
  • Free yoga classes in lovely Buddha garden
  • Room perks include luxurious linens and bathrobes, French press with organic coffee, and aromatherapy burners with essential oils
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking

Cons

  • Rooms are not very spacious, and come at a high price
  • No pool on premise and not directly on the beach
  • Breakfast is not included during July and August

Bottom Line

This historic yet chic property in the center of East Hampton appeals to the stylish Hamptonite crowd with 16 rooms/suites, and three cottages decorated in Scandinavian design. Owned by a Swedish entrepreneur with 20 hotels around the world, this one is just steps from the village and a bike ride to the beach (with free beach cruiser loaners available). The pretty front porch, trendy restaurant, and distinct amenities (such as doggie menus and yoga classes in the Buddha garden) make this a popular choice for those who have money to spend.

Oyster Hotel Review

The moment you enter the front door, you’ll get a sense of the iconic Hamptons scene. While some nearby inns make you feel a million miles from Manhattan, this does the opposite with its modern design and sophisticated, see-and-be-seen crowd. Though some guests have their noses in the air, staff members -- many who are Scandinavian -- fit the quintessential bed & breakfast-style hospitality. Enjoy further home comforts of a B&B while relaxing from the quaint front deck, strolling the Chef's Garden, or finding Zen in the Buddha garden.

 Location

A historic year-round cottage a short walk to the village of East Hampton

Once you take that memorable left turn on Montauk Highway to enter East Hampton, the Maidstone -- a sprawling cottage close to town and beaches -- will come into view. The white-and-green awning is noticeable from the main thoroughfare where traffic can be a snarl, especially in summer months.

  • 67-minute drive to Islip Airport
  • 5-minute walk to downtown East Hampton
  • 15-minute walk or 5-minute drive to the beach
  • 15-minute drive to Sag Harbor
  • 20-minute drive to Montauk
  • 18-minute drive to Southampton
  • 2-hour drive to Manhattan

 Rooms

Choose from one of the 19 individually themed rooms, suites, and cottages named after an iconic Scandinavian figure

Rooms have individualized decor and are named after famous Scandinavian personalities (there is an Edvard Munch Room and a Carl Von Linne Freestanding Cottage, for example). Rooms tend to be on the smaller side, while suites offer a seating area and a bit more space. Private cottages are separate from the main building and have their own entrances, as well as wood-burning fireplaces and private blue-stone patios.

  • Hastens Scandinavian beds
  • Organic cotton linens, towels, and bathrobes
  • French presses and organic coffee
  • iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Aromatherapy burners and essential oils
  • Toiletries by Malin + Goetz

A high-end restaurant and lounge open year-round

The Living Room restaurant and lounge -- open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- is considered a hot spot in East Hampton. When not using their own chef’s garden in the back, the kitchen will choose organic ingredients from local producers.

  • The wine cellar holds more than 300 bins from around the world, and the resident Sommelier will help with meal pairings.
  • Breakfast is included with the cost of the room during off-season, but comes with a charge in July and August.
  • Slow food picnic baskets for the beach are also available to order.

This historic yet chic property in the center of East Hampton appeals to the stylish Hamptonite crowd with 16 rooms/suites, and three cottages decorated in Scandinavian design.
