We stayed at the Bassett House Inn several years ago. The room we stayed in was pretty much as described by other reviewers- not very well decorated, a musty odor, no security. Plus, we had a broken hot water faucet which could have scalded someone. We told the owner who did nothing about it. We also had trouble with the...

Thanks to Host Michael for a great weekend despite the April rain and dampness. The location of this Inn is so terrific, I had access to everything!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about being in the middle of the action. You can walk to great restaurants. It is only minutes by car to the East Hampton Playhouse and luxurious shopping; the multi-millionaire houses; and...

This B&B should not be allowed to operate as a business. We pulled up to the Inn and were greeted by an overgrown yard, trash in the unmowed grass and a cluttered yard. Once inside, the house smelled musty and seemed moldy, like it had never seen the light of day. The furniture was old and there was junk everywhere....

It is very hard to glean a true opinion about a potential vacation spot when disgruntled people choose to utilize a “review” website as a forum to deliberately deter potential patronage just to spite the establishment. Fortunately for me, I had not read any of the disparaging remarks that I just read on “TravelAdvisor” before my wife and I planned...

We wish we'd found these reviews prior to booking because our experience was very similar to that of the person who posted the July 29, 2004 review. Had we known what we know now, we never would have stayed here. The Bassett House is in a serious state of disrepair. Our room had filthy carpets and curtains, a dusty floor,...

My fiancee and I spent the July 4th weekend at the Bassett House with our dog Roxy. We had a wonderful time! Mike was very friendly and a great host. He was very helpful and the accommodations were excellent. I would reccomend this to anyone who wanted to stay in the Hamptons!

I was going out to East Hampton for a Yoga Retreat for cancer survivors run by the Libby Ross Foundation, and the Bassett House was on their list of potential accommodations. I called and made a reservation about 6 weeks prior to the retreat and sent a deposit for one night. I planned on staying two nights. About two weeks...

Bassett House Inn is the most unpretentious, comfortable Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed in. It's the kind of place that invites relaxed, scintilating conversation at the breakfast table and if you aren't careful, the fun could continue to almost noon. If you don't want that and wish to be alone, you can walk or jump on a bike...

My husband and I stayed at the Basset House in March during a cold spell. We had stayed with Michael 10 years ago as well. The Bassett House is a bit like a bachelor pad, a little unkempt but very welcoming. It is the type of place you can put your feet up on the furniture and relax. Michael even...

We planned a wonderful NY get-a-way and were dismayed to find when we arrived that the innkeeper did not have a room for us, and never reimbursed the money we mailed to reserve the room, DESPITE filing a complaint to the BBB. Would NOT endorse this inn, there are many other nice ones (actually several were eager to help us...
