#4 of 12 in East Hampton
A charming, three-story house bordered by a white picket fence embodies traditional Colonial appeal. Built in the mid 1600's, some original architecture remains, especially in the lounge, with its beautiful wood paneling and ceiling beams.Rooms vary in size and each has a sitting area, some have a fireplace.The 1770 House has two fine restaurants. The Tavern, a favorite for Hamptons locals, has a tiny bar, fireplace, famous meatloaf and other casual fare. The main dining room is more elegant and sophisticated, serving a contemporary American menu with a Wine Spectator award winning wine list.

The 1770 Inn & Restaurant offered us a romantic getaway in the heart of East Hampton, where the respectful, courteous, and friendly staff, especially Michael and Ferquan, treated us exceptionally well. Our room (#3) was not overtly roomy, but served its purpose for the weekend, with our only complaint being there was an electrical issue in our bathroom that was not addressed during our stay and forced us to alter the way were prepared for the day and evening. The complimentary breakfast in the main dining room offered us a convenient and tasty way to start the day, while dinner satisfied our desire for a dining experience in a romantic setting, with soft music, candlelight, a gas fire place, which oddly was not turned, and very good food. Be prepared to pay the East Hampton premium, but in our opinion, the experience justified the cost. FYI, the 1770 House has a tavern in the basement, which we did not advantage, and a well-designed, flower-filled sitting area in the backyard that was closed due to cold weather.

My husband and I stayed for a 3 day mid-week break at 1770 and had a wonderful stay. We stayed in room #2, which I think is one of the smaller rooms, but it had lovely windows on 2 sides of the room, and beautiful decor which made it very cute indeed. The floors are creaky and you can see the ceiling is on a slant but for us this added to the charm! Felt like we were staying in a piece of East Hampton history! The continental breakfast each day was lovely, with smoked salmon, fresh fruit, muffins, coffee - couldn't ask for more. And Radye the inn keeper was really helpful in telling us how to make the most of our stay and parts of the town to enjoy. We ate in the restaurant on one of the evenings - and it was exquisite. They do a set menu which is good value and the dishes are prepared immaculately. We enjoyed some local wine too! Would definitely recommend this place - great location, lovely building and friendly service.

This review is for the hotel and restaurant which are both exquisite. First the restaurant - my family went to dinner in the dining room this past week and had a lovely meal. This was my third time dining here - first two with my husband and the third time with my husband and two kids. Admittedly, I was hesitant to bring my kids, ages 8 and 6, here due to the menu being too sophisticated, but 1770 House was so accommodating and was able to bring them more simple fare from the Tavern downstairs. My 8 year old ended up having to leave the table early with my husband due to not feeling well, but the staff was just so nice with offering to keep his meal warm and boxing it up even after it had been served. Shout out to Carol who was so unbelievably nice to offer to drive my other child and me back to our hotel while we were waiting. That offer was just above and beyond and represents the extraordinary customer service here. After our recent restaurant experience, I realized I had never written a review for the hotel. I have stayed here twice with my husband, most recently in October 2020 in Room One (so lovely!). The Inn is very charming with a beautiful garden out back that also offers outdoor dining in warmer weather. The location is very convenient to downtown East Hampton, about a 10 minute walk. Can’t say enough about how much we love this place and the amazing breakfasts that are included with the stay. Randye, the other manager, was so helpful both times we stayed with coordinating activities and making reservations. We love this hotel so much and look forward to staying here again soon!

We were so concerned about Covid that we were hesitant to go away but when we saw that the 1770 House had a separate carriage house, we were eager to reserve that for our family vacation. From the minute we met the Innkeeper Randye, she was so friendly and was so happy to show us where everything was in the inn. She also was excellent in recommending restaurants in our area that we could eat dinner at. The inn itself was preserved so beautifully and it was very nostalgic to walk around and look at all the lovely furnishings. I must say that everywhere we looked, staff were cleaning everything so I felt very safe seeing this. Now with regard to the carriage house, we absolutely loved the quaint cottage. It had an adorable porch with plenty of seating and when you open the door you are invited into a beautifully decorated cottage. A lovely living room, dining area, small kitchenette with refrigerator and anything else you would need. There were 2 nice sized bedrooms with 2 king beds and 2 bathrooms with heavenly showers. We loved the bathrobes and slippers and all the Molton Brown products too that were supplied. Breakfast at the inn was such a delight too. From fresh baked muffins and fresh fruit to wonderful choices of eggs, frittatas, pancakes and waffles. I can’t brag enough about our wonderful stay at this Inn and I can only say that we will be back again.

Went out East for Bedside Author’s Weekend 2/28-3/1, what a great decision it was to stay at 1770. I knew immediately when I spoke to the innkeeper, Randye that this was the place for us. She was warm, knowledgeable and knew all there was to know about the Hamptons. The Inn is beautiful, our room #5 was cozy and private, and the Eggs Benedict at breakfast, were the best I’ve had. Matthew, the breakfast waitstaff was friendly and very efficient. We will be back!

My husband and I recently escaped to East Hampton for a one-night stay at the lovely 1770 House. The manager reached out to me shortly after booking to see if I needed any assistance with reservations, and she offered several helpful suggestions. 1770 House is located on the Main Street of East Hampton, just a short walk to the Jitney stop and the main shops. Upon arrival we were quickly shown to our lovely room (#2). The room was small (as expected from the website), but it was a lovely corner room with plenty of natural light. I particularly loved the sunny yellow William Morris wallpaper. The room was very clean and the bed was absolutely heavenly. Another highlight of our stay at 1770 House was eating dinner in The Tavern. The food was fantastic, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was warm and cozy on a cold winter night. Finally, breakfast the following morning was a nice selection of granola, yogurt, eggs, muffins, and bagels with smoked salmon. Breakfast was served in the dining room with a fire going in the fireplace. What a nice way to start the day! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 1770 House, and we plan to return in the future!

We stayed at 1770 House as a base from which to explore East Hampton and the surrounding area. From the online reviews and room rate (comparable with a Four Seasons or Fairmont), we had high expectations. Having made our booking, Randye (Inn Keeper) was proactive and responsive in following up with us and offering a wide range of information and insights, which was all very good service. The property, accommodation (we stayed in room 6) and service during our stay though fell short of expectation. Rooms are pleasantly furnished and clean, but lack basics such as a coffee machine. Storage in the room is limited and storage and space in the bathroom even more limited. The seating area comprised a narrow window ledge with cushions. Continental breakfast is basic, is self service and is not varied at all day to day. A cooked breakfast is provided in place of continental at weekends. This is table service, however, although breakfast was included in the room rate, we were presented with a $0 bill each morning with an expectation we would tip the waiting staff. Service was poor, with aspects of simple orders missed and even orange juice and tea / coffee problematic to get right. On checkout we were very surprised to find a 5% gratuity had been added to the total bill. There was no reasonable explanation for this. We had tipped throughout the stay where reasonable to do so (e.g. bar staff in the Tavern bar and housekeeping) and the room rate was already high. This was removed from the bill, but left a bit of a sour taste. As others have commented, this really is a restaurant with a small number of rooms. The restaurant is formal dining and clearly popular. This didn't fit with our stay and we didn't eat in the restaurant, but it's interesting that many of the higher rated reviews appear to be for restaurant experiences rather than the B&B. Overall, if returning to the area, we would look for better, alternative accommodation.

Many misfires here, starting with the room rate of $750/night which is way out of line with the value. This is really a restaurant with a few tiny rooms attached. When I say tiny, I mean tiny! We couldn’t go from the bed to the bathroom without stubbing our toes. We finally stacked the rickety benches at the foot of the bed in a corner so we had a bit more space. The bathroom door swings in such a way you have to shut it to use the facilities. Bathroom had an overwhelming smell of chlorine all four days we were there. Coffee is quite bad and I’m fine with Tasters Choice so not picky! Breakfast was so-so. TV premium channels didn’t work so had to watch live tv. Room so small tv attached to wall near dresser so everything we opened a drawer we bumped into it. Bathroom amenities basic. All around would have been ok at $250/night.
