The Baker House 1650 in East Hampton By Christine Bude
The Baker House, which dates back to the earliest settlers, is one of the oldest continuously occupied structures in the United States. The house was constructed by sea captain, Daniel Ghoe, in 1648. In 1650 the house was sold to Thomas, one of the original founders of the town. Backer turned the house into Baker's Tavern.
The building went through a series of changes and owners in its history. In 1996, the inn underwent an extensive renovation, returning to its 1917 charm.There are five guest rooms in this elegant English manor house.
The Baker Spa, completed in 2000, features a lap pool, sauna, steam shower and spa tub. Sumptuous breakfast is served to guest each morning. Informal gardens cover nearly a full acre, with winding paths of aromatic herbs. The inn has received great reviews from Travel + Leisure, Town & Country and The Wall Street Journal.

The Baker House 1650 a pretty stucco inn in East Hampton resembles an English country estate: it's built in the Elizabethean style and quaint little gardens are scattered throughout the property. Over the years, a number of owners have stepped in—including in 1996, former Maidstone Arms proprietors Gary and Rita Reiswig (who were largely responsible for saving the property from disrepair)—and the building underwent a lot of name changes. Currently it's run by longtime East Hampton residents Antonella and Bob Rose and the name refers to Thomas Baker, one of the town's original founders, who purchased the building (which was erected in 1648) in 1650.
The five guestrooms are all cozy and quaint though each has its own design scheme. The Gardiner, the Maidstone, and the Fithian have pale paisley William Morris wallpaper (in varying colors) while the Hedges and Huntting rooms, located in the older section of the building, have original wooden paneling and exposed ceiling beams. With the exception of the Fithian, all also have wood-burning fireplaces. Unlike most B&Bs, the Baker House also boasts an extensive spa facility, complete with a lap pool, a sauna, a steam shower as well as a hot tub. Open year-round.
Tip: Pick-up from the nearby Hampton Jitney stop, the East Hampton train satin and the East Hampton airport available; private helicopter services can also be arranged. All guests receive East Hampton Village beach parking passes.
