Before there were Mc’ Mansion’s, Starbucks on every corner and 3 year olds getting mani pedi’s, there used to be a simple time. Families would pack up the car and go away for a week. It wasn’t ever the Ritz (one of my favorite travel properties) but it was always simple and great.
How I wish my children could live in that time, in that life when things were not candy coated and perfect.
I did find a great little place a number of years ago that brings me back to that time the Grassmere in West Hampton Beach of all places!
It is definitely not the Ritz, but the owner Peter and his staff are so helpful, nice and caring they are the reason we return to the Grassmere every summer.
The location is perfect, around the corner from town and about a 10-minute walk to the beach!
My children and I have a standing reservation at the Grassmere . To us it’s like visiting family. We have met others who return year after year and we really enjoy catching up with them over breakfast on the patio or at night on the front porch.
The Grassmere is also affiliated with a terrific tennis camp just down Montauk highway. And naturally Peter will make arrangements to drive you to and from it if you don’t have the wheels to get there.
Hopefully you will give the Grassmere a try, its worth it!
