“Our second summer at Gansett Green Manor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

It has mostly all been said by other reviewers here -- we LOVE Gansett Green Manor and recommend it highly. Unpretentious, reasonably priced, clean and friendly. Our second visit (2012) was just as nice as the first (2011) -- and we lucked-out with great weather. The beach pass alone is worth its weight in gold. Housekeeper Narcisa deserves special mention -- she is friendly and goes out of her way to be helpful. Property back garden is charming. Dog and kid friendly but very serene. Yes the furniture is a little shabby. Bed in Country Cottage (C-4) was very hard and you should bring your own pillow if you don't care for hard foam. Bikes available + beach chairs, umbrellas and clean big beach towels. Charming and perfect getaway!

Gansett Green Manor is our favorite place to stay in the Hamptons. The rooms are quaint with lots of Hamptons charm and still reasonably priced. Each room we’ve stayed in has a different character, and they’re all a great place to escape our hectic schedules and really “un-plug” for a week.
The hotel is right on Main Street, and within reasonable walking distance to the beach, so we hardly use our car the whole time we’re there. But they do offer beach passes in case we want to drive, and they have chairs and towels to lend which is a really great perk.
The lawns are beautifully manicured and so much more impressive than you can imagine when you first drive up. Some people bring dogs, and there’s plenty of space for them to run around and play without being on top of other people (like me) who just want to curl up with a book and relax.
All-in-all, it’s a really charming, peaceful choice for people looking to enjoy the leisure of the Hamptons while still being able to walk to shops, restaurants, etc.

I thought the property was adorable, charming, well kept and private. The room we stayed in was actually an individual cottage with a kitchenette, separate bedroom, living room and updated bath. It was very clean...They had a large area for you to walk your dog in the back. It was very dog friendly..I went in October 2011 and it was a beautiful time of year to be there. I will definitely go back. It was a great value for the Hamptons!

The room and furniture were dated and unappealing. There was some kind of a deer skin rug or something in the bedroom which looked rather unclean. There are big heaters mounted on the walls, presumably because the place was not winterized. I don't stay in hotels for the TV, but I honestly can't remember the last time I stayed in a place with a tube TV.

Lastly, the owner told me there was a nice field/grass area behind the cottages. So I brought my two year old daughter there to run around. As we started to play on the grass it soon became apparent that is was absolutely littered with deer poop. I'm not talking a few. I'm talking all over the place. It is a health hazard, and she suggested we all go back there to walk around!

I will never go back again, nor would I recommend to anyone.

Gansett Green Manor is tucked-away off the Amagansett main street. We contemplated renting a house, but the weighing the true value of staying here was: 1) we could bring our dogs; 2) daily housekeeping services; 2) invaluable beach pass for our car + beach chairs/towels; 3) bikes to borrow; 3) lovely open garden spaces and comfortable outdoor furniture to entertain friends; 4) our own little kitchen (and an amazing farmers' market down the street); 5) extremely friendly housekeeping and management staff. We (and our dogs) love the beach and completely lucked-out with the early August weather. Planning to return...

We rented out the whole property of GGM – 13 cottages + the house (which they no longer rent) for our wedding reception last September. Pricing is fairly reasonable, especially for a treasure like GGM. We had 180 people at our wedding, but having our closest friends and family together on the property all weekend made it feel so special and very intimate. Our guests raved about the accommodations – total Hampton’s charm!

From the street, GGM is quite modest and unassuming; you will be surprised at the spectacular property (and cool sculptures!) that lies behind it. We were blown away the first time we saw it and knew straight away we would be married there. You walk through this gorgeous canopy of trees, around a few snaking curves and then the back lawn unfolds. This is one of my favorite parts of the property; it really is a hidden gem.

We got married in a church across the street, but most couples have their ceremony right on the property. They have a beautiful little corner with a pretty garden for this purpose. You can set the property up however you want, using tents, bars, stages etc…. for a mood that is as elegant or casual as you like. Of note, loud noise (such as a band/loud music) and lights must go out by 11 pm. This is a town ordinance and there is no way around this. Plan accordingly.

We had a catered brunch the next day in a cozy little part of the property. This was the perfect way to wrap up an amazing weekend and having brunch on the property was a big money saver! You can also do your rehearsal dinner there – the grounds are all yours for the whole weekend!

The staff at GGM is truly special. There was a change in management from the time we booked to our wedding several months later. They handled the transition like true professionals and were eager to help us plan an amazing weekend. The staff is incredibly helpful, ensuring the rooms were in perfect condition, putting out lights we purchased to line the pathway, manicuring the grounds, delivering welcome baskets to the rooms etc… They worked so closely with me to ensure that everything went smoothly; it was like having 3 additional wedding planners!

Overall, our experience with GGM was wonderful! Our guests loved the mini-destination feel and were happy to escape Manhattan for a weekend! We heard from so many guests about how beautiful and unique our wedding was. The property is gorgeous and meticulously maintained, the accommodations are lovely, the location is perfect and the staff is kind and helpful. We plan to rent the property for our annual family reunion, just so we can go back!

We are very familiar with the Hamptons. Have stayed in several B&B's, hotels, etc. Gansett Green Manor has a nice website, but is one of the worst lodging options. The interior was dirty, with dirty spots on the carpet and dirt on the floor. The furniture is very shabby. The room was dark and small. The bathroom was tiny. I couldn't even bend over a little bit to shave and I am only 100 pounds. The water temperature on the shower goes from warm to cold for no reason, so it is impossible to get a good shower. I was so grossed out by this hotel, I kept wanting to leave the Hamptons because I could not relax knowing I had to go back to the room to sleep. Honestly, this place is only half a grade above a youth hostel. We DO NOT LIKE IT. Sorry.

lel34, Owner at Gansett Green Manor, responded to this review, November 19, 2010
Gansset Green Manor is a country Inn whose buildings date from the late 1800's. The original property was a farm and the original building were converted in the 1940's into cottages and country-style accommodations. The currents owners purchased the property in 1993 and have spent much time and effort lovingly upgrading and updating the rooms. This process, however is an ongoing one, as it is in most accommodations and we regret if the reviewers were unhappy. Surprisingly they expressed no unhappiness to the management . While there are other lodging options in the area that may be more contemporary, we pride ourselves on our old world charm, reflecting the Hamptons of a bygone era. We have had the pleasure of enjoying many,many repeat guests over the years and regret that these guests were unable to experience the happiness that Gansett Green Manor has brought so many.
