We stayed at the 1708 House for two nights in June 2014 and everything was perfect. The location of this B&B cannot be beat, literally steps away from the shops & restaurants of downtown Southampton, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Coopers Beach is a very short (& beautiful) drive away and having the beach pass made it 1000x times better.
We stayed in Room 3 and I loved it. The room was large with a lot of sitting space and a deliciously comfortable king size bed. The linens were clean and the Molton Brown bathroom products were a nice touch. The room was quiet and the AC worked well!
The daily breakfast was a highlight- fresh fruit & pastries, made to order eggs, delicious juices & coffee- it was great to be able to have a good meal before starting the day. They also have a daily "wine time" which was another nice touch. In a town that can be very expensive it was nice to have a little freebie. We sat in the rocking chairs on the front porch sipping on wine & watching the world go by, it was wonderful.
Linda & the rest of the staff at 1708 House made us feel welcome & completely comfortable. Don't bother looking for other accommodations in Southampton, just stay here. I will definitely be back.
