It is very hard to glean a true opinion about a potential vacation spot when disgruntled people choose to utilize a “review” website as a forum to deliberately deter potential patronage just to spite the establishment. Fortunately for me, I had not read any of the disparaging remarks that I just read on “TravelAdvisor” before my wife and I planned... More

We wish we'd found these reviews prior to booking because our experience was very similar to that of the person who posted the July 29, 2004 review. Had we known what we know now, we never would have stayed here. The Bassett House is in a serious state of disrepair. Our room had filthy carpets and curtains, a dusty floor,... More

The reviews of this inn that are positive are so diametrically opposed to our experience and those of many other guests that one has to wonder whether they've been written by friends of the proprietor or are works of fiction. This inn makes a mockery of the hospitality business. Stay away from it!!

My fiancee and I spent the July 4th weekend at the Bassett House with our dog Roxy. We had a wonderful time! Mike was very friendly and a great host. He was very helpful and the accommodations were excellent. I would reccomend this to anyone who wanted to stay in the Hamptons!

I was going out to East Hampton for a Yoga Retreat for cancer survivors run by the Libby Ross Foundation, and the Bassett House was on their list of potential accommodations. I called and made a reservation about 6 weeks prior to the retreat and sent a deposit for one night. I planned on staying two nights. About two weeks... More

Bassett House Inn is the most unpretentious, comfortable Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed in. It's the kind of place that invites relaxed, scintilating conversation at the breakfast table and if you aren't careful, the fun could continue to almost noon. If you don't want that and wish to be alone, you can walk or jump on a bike... More

My husband and I stayed at the Basset House in March during a cold spell. We had stayed with Michael 10 years ago as well. The Bassett House is a bit like a bachelor pad, a little unkempt but very welcoming. It is the type of place you can put your feet up on the furniture and relax. Michael even... More

We planned a wonderful NY get-a-way and were dismayed to find when we arrived that the innkeeper did not have a room for us, and never reimbursed the money we mailed to reserve the room, DESPITE filing a complaint to the BBB. Would NOT endorse this inn, there are many other nice ones (actually several were eager to help us... More

Terrible conditions, house was not well kept. It's old, rundown and in need of a paint job, and repairs. Stayed there on a Saturday night in July 2004. Asked for private bathroom; electricity and lighting in bathroom did not work, sparks and electrical shorts occured when turning on the lights. We were not able to take shower and ruined our...

No matter what you are looking for, whether it be some time alone, a romantic get-a-way, or just out for fun, I highly recommend The Bassett House. Having always stayed in hotels, i had never been to a Bed & Breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Within minutes of my arrival i felt totally at home. The accommodations were beautiful and...
