My husband and I were married during our stay at the J Harper Poor Cottage in East Hampton. It may sound silly, but we felt like we were in Alice in Wonderland's Secret Garden as we discovered the magical floweres, aromas, and details scattered throughout the property - both inside and out. We stayed in the Huntting Room which was well appointed with lovely antiques, a crackling wood fireplace, an old rocker from long ago, and first class antique linens. The charm cannot be simply put into words! We awoke to the smell of blueberry pancakes, sausage and gourmet coffees. We meandered the inn, only to find wallpaper by William Morris, photographs from centuries ago, and overstuffed antique furniture. It was so comfy that we wished we had time to relax and read a few books from cover to cover. Every surface of the inn was hand crafted, and architecturally marvelous! In the late afternoon, chefs were in the kitchen preparing beautiful snacks. The spa in the basement was a tempting treat - if only we had time. We lingered too long at breakfast, and slept in too late to really enjoy all that the inn had to offer. We were married the next day, and never felt more refreshed and comfortable lounging in public...it was an intimate and warm setting, unlike any other. The next day we took a stroll to the beach, and walked the streets of East Hampton where shoppes and restaurants were in close proximity...and the lane where we had to say goodbye to our guests could not have been more picture perfect.
