A DIFFERENT HAMPTONS | EAST HAMPTON, NEW YORK | Baker House 1650 The Baker House is one of the oldest continuously occupied structures in the United States and its history is movie-worthy. Built in 1640 by a sea captain, the property served as both a tavern and church simultaneously. In 1911 it underwent a significant renovation in the Elizabethan style. Unless you are lucky enough to get a weekend invitation to stay with Martha Stewart, there's perhaps no other way to feel as welcome in the Hamptons. Though there's no restaurant on-property, a fresh breakfast...

United States, Baker House 1650 | Refined, charming elegance far away from the bustle of New York City "East Hampton's Main Street is lined with classical homes and historic buildings, adorned with manicured landscaping and understated beauty. Baker House 1650, the deluxe and exclusive bed & breakfast, might be the subtlest and prettiest of them all. As the hospitable staff welcomes you to your new home, you realize that yes, you've made it away from the city, and this is where you want to be. The house's entrance is obscured by tall, trim green hedges, but inside lays a preserved elegance. Striking green-and-ivory checkered tiling around the fireplace. The 17th-century Cotswold-inspired architecture runs from the historic and triangular formation of the outside, to the wood beams running across sizable guest rooms- with deceptively comfortable vintage furniture.

"There was a woman who was attending a charity event and realized she forgot to bring the right shoes to go with her dress. She had her housekeeper [in the city] retrieve them, hand them to the bus driver, and we picked them up in a few hours at the East Hampton stop in plenty of time for her event."

Back to the Hamptons at the Baker House 1650

Can something be called a tradition if it's only the second time we do it? while in New York this December, we escaped to the countryside of the Hamptons once again and it was a wonderful time. Today sharing with you the Baker House 1650 experience!

The 'villa' and living area

From the outside, the Baker House appears more like your luxurious residential villa instead of a hotel or bed & breakfast. Which in my opinion is a big plus, because it adds to the uniqueness of the place. What first pops in mind when entering inside, is the wonderful feeling of coziness. Especially the living room area (see last picture) with fire place, cushiony sofa's and comforting colour palette is just that ultimate 'I'm coming home' ambiance. A feeling that couldn't come at a better time, because it was 2 days before Christmas and we were both having the worst flu. Worst timing, I know...

Up up we go

one of my favourite things in the villa is the wooden colonial staircase that leads to the rooms. It reminded me of one of those old movies from the 20s. Anyway, upstairs. We stayed in a room, or perhaps suite is a more suitable word, called 'the Hedges' . As you can sense from the picture below the room has some wonderful authentic charm with its wooden panels, neutral colour palette and fire place

Explore

As you can imagine, a place like this with SO many cute, unexpected nooks and corners is a true treat to photograph. There is so much to discover! In the basement of the Baker House house is the Spa , with a pool, sauna and to have a massage. The latter which we did and it was the best massage I've had in a long time. The therapists were very knowledgeable and great at what they do. For us, it was the perfect last day at the Baker House. Something else to love at this place is breakfast time, with great new choices on the menu every day and what you want made to order. Coffee or hot chocolate is available throughout the day, the perfect way to end your day with a cuppa in front of the fire place. That's how we spend all our evenings. in case you were wondering!

Hamptons | Baker House 1650

Luxury LodgingsThe Baker House 1650 is a 17th-century home once owned by Thomas Baker, one of the East Hampton's original founders. Famed interior designer and illustrator Jeremiah Goodman purchased the on-property carriage house in the late 1960s, transforming it into a luxurious playground for the famous friends like playwright Edward Albee and screen siren Brigitte Bardot. Now, The Baker House 1650 is an exclusive Elizabethan style holiday haven that evokes the elegance of an old English manor.

EQUESTRIO | Equestrio celebrates Global Art at East Hamptons

A historic Carriage House dating back to 1883 was the perfect setting for a Hamptons summer soiree with Equestrio. Antonella Bertello, owner of the The Baker House 1650 in East Hampton, NY hosted guests at her stunning inn to celebrate artist Mike Arnold and his exhibit "Polo: The Dance of Pony and Player." Glasses of Champagne Billecart-Salmon, compelling conversation, and artistic appreciation abounded on the magical midsummer evening where guests gathered from around the globe. For anyone looking for an oasis to stay in the Hamptons, the inn has a main house with pool and wisteria-covered pergola as well as a spa with indoor pool, sauna, and Jacuzzi. In the back of the property, the impeccably restored Carriage House has guest rooms and its own private pool and patio, original details such as the barn doors, iron spiral staircase, hay doors, and slate and wooden floors intact. It's the perfect place for luxury and privacy to stay during the Hampton Classic or vacation time year-round. Featured artist Mike Arnold and his wife Lauren traveled from Dubai where he has had an established architectural career which has evolved into art. "Living and working in the Middle East has exposed me to the region's inspiring admiration and love for horses and the venues where both horse and rider interact and compete," he explains. Many of his works capture horses racing in the prestigious Dubai World Cup. The process is a mono-print technique which is a combination and interaction of layers of pencil drawing over oil paper, over an oil painted foil on glass - an interesting interplay between positive and negative space.Read More

HOME, SUITE HOME

The Baker House 1650 suits all tastes in East Hampton
Markedly absent from the luxurious enclave of the Hamptons, Five-Star luxury hotels are at long last on the rise, there is now a trio of Hamptons properties where history and money have coupled to create hotels at a Relais & Chateaux level.
History and money are familiar bedfellows in Hamptons residential real estate: Even an imperfect piece of the past costs a pretty present penny. It's a different story on the hotel side, where the twain hardly ever bed down. Classic luxury accommodations in historic buildings are rare on the East End, which is why the Hamptons has been saddled with that hyphenated adjective

GARDEN OASIS
The Baker House 1650 suits all tastes in East Hampton.

 

And finally, here's the past as heritage. Baker House is a 1650 home that in 1911 was transformed into an Elizabethan-style manor by that era's Charles Gwathmey, Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe, the architect who did Grey Gardens among numerous other mansions, many in the gambrel style. Here, though, he went off on an inspired tangent, ransacking the Elizabethan playbook brilliantly: molded plaster ceiling paneling in the living room, coffered wood paneling in the lobby sitting room, tall eaves faced with strapwork (a decorative version of half-timbering), and those small-paned windows that give Elizabethan-style facades their inimitable rhythm.

I stayed in Maidstone, one of the top suites and a sonata of green. I've stayed in scores of luxury hotels around the world, but have rarely been so taken with a room. It's not the largest or the most luxurious room that I've ever had, but it wraps you in a cashmere throw of the past-reproduction William Morris wallpaper of twirling tendrils, three-over-five small paned windows that look across to Mulford Farm, embracing armchairs, and a window seat long enough to stretch out on, which my companion promptly did, purring the afternoon away here with a book.

The garden feels like the English countryside: 200-year-old wisteria vines agony-twisted up to the crossbeams of an arbor, and cypress trees formed an honor guard down the far side of the property. Loungers were strewn about in front of the small pool, which has been beautifully worked into the landscape. Over the hedge, there's an expanse of lawn with mature trees-hoop-skirted evergreens and obese rhododendrons ready to bloom-leading to the Carriage House, a two-suite compound with its own pool, much larger than the one behind the main house. (Baker House stands out among Hamptons luxury inns for having a pool at all, as it does for the small gem of a spa in the basement, which has its own pool, sauna, and jacuzzi.)

The room to get in the Carriage House is the Loft Suite, an open-plan garret of white, taupe, and beige with a big sleigh bed, a shower for two, and a deck flanked by gables. It's $1,500 a night in season, and as you suspected, in season it's always booked. However, I'd be quite happy waking up to see the hand-hewn wooden beams of The Hedges, one of the smallest rooms in the original part of the house. Past perfect. 181 Main St., East Hampton, 324-4081; bakerhouse1650.com H

Beach: Morning Glories

The Hamptons best breakfasts are harder to come by than you would think - they require an overnight stay at one of the East Ends beautiful old inns
Just steps away from the Guild Hall and the East Hamptoon Library is The Baker House 1650, a 17th century English manor and a year round retresat that takes the words

THE BAKER HOUSE 1650
The Baker House 1650, a 17th Century English manor and year-round retreat that takes the words "bed" and "breakfast" seriously.

 

Many of the seven unique rooms?five in the main house and two in the newly remodeled carriage house?have balconies, sitting areas and wood-burning fireplaces, but all feature flat-screen TVs, large beds with Kingsdown mattresses, Frette linens and towels, and lavish private bathrooms with spa-type tubs and L'Occitane products. For additional rejuvenation, there's even a spa on the property - a rarity in the Hamptons - that boasts an endless swimming pool, a steam shower, a sauna and a Jacuzzi. (Guests can also reserve the spa for private massages or facials.)

And while the inn's luxurious rooms and common areas will have you savoring the night hours, the delectable Baker Breakfast will have you anticipating the morning. A spread of homemade pastries (including berry cobblers; banana bread; scones; and lemon, blueberry and carrot cakes), fresh seasonal fruit from Hampton Market, Citarella and Round Swamp Farm; fresh-squeezed juices; and Hampton brand coffee greets you in the gardenside breakfast room. If a hot breakfast is more to your liking, dishes can also be made to order. The menu changes daily, but expect to find two egg-based dishes, like omelets with seasonal vegetables and herbs that are grown in the backyard, as well as something sweeter from the grill, such as Swedish pancakes with lingonbeny jam, cinnamon-bread French toast, or yeast-raised waffles.

You have the options of dining in your room or seated inside the charming breakfast space, but we suggest having your meal outside in the inn's magnificent English garden, with its vine-covered walls, 200-year-old wisteria tree and well-groomed lawn surrounding an infinity pool?which, if the weather is on your side, is perfect for an after-meal dip. From $395 per night through Dec. 1, 181 Main St., East Hampton, bakerhouse1650.com ?Camille Hunt

The Express Magazine|Home & Garden: Meet me in the Garden

Hotels offer outdoor spaces for a cool drink or a quiet reflection - by Taessa Raebeck
In motor inns and chain hotels across the country, the bed is often the most coveted part of the visit. But out here on the East End, the hotel experience goes past the guest's room to include fine dining, furnished sitting rooms and, perhaps most importantly, the gardens and grounds. The hotels of the North and South Forks are not limited to a building, a parking lot, and maybe a fenced-in pool; guests are drawn to beautiful water views, fields of flowers and manicured lawns flanked by hydrangea bushes. At the Baker House on East Hampton's historic Main Street, a 200-year-old wisteria tree forms an arbor in the middle of the grounds.

THE BAKER HOUSE, EAST HAMPTON
MEET ME in the GARDEN Hotels offer outdoor spaces for a cool drink or quiet reflection BY TESSA RAEBECK

In motor inns and chain hotels across the country, the bed is often the most coveted part of the visit. But out here on the East End, the hotel experience goes past the guest's room to include fine dining, furnished sitting rooms and, perhaps most importantly, the gardens and grounds. The hotels of the North and South Forks are not limited to a building, a parking lot, and maybe a fenced-in pool; guests are drawn to beautiful water views, fields of flowers and manicured lawns flanked by hydrangea bushes.

At the Baker House on East Hampton's historic Main Street, a 200-year-old wisteria tree forms an arbor in the middle of the grounds.

"It's very much an English country garden," said Kathy McCormack of the Baker House.

On one side of the yard is a well, on the other a pristine light blue pool cascades on one side with a waterfall into a lowered stone siding. An espalier--a tree whose branches are trained to grow flat against a wall, supported on a lattice or a framework of stakes?supports apple trees that "just grow right on it, so you can see the formation of the trees right on the wall," Ms. McCormack said.

More wisterias, roses, lilies, hydrangeas and a "beautiful" magnolia tree also decorate the lawn, she said, as do French hydrangeas that frame the entire back trellis.
