1708 Southampton New York USA 1. Booking: I made this booking over the www after reading all of the reviews available (see comment about other reviews below). The email contact and one telephone call to ensure 1708 had what we were looking for went smoothly and a very professional experience. Later when I needed to have some computer equipment delivered...

Here you'll enjoy elegance without glitz, charm without attitude, and style without pretense. The owner, Skip Ralph, is a veteran New Yorker and long-time Southampton business owner. Skip's love and knowledge of architecture, history and antiques is matched only by his graciousness as a host. He has saved a Hamptons treasure. The 1708 House's public rooms, grounds and guest suites... More

Beautiful home and dining room is exquisite for continental breakfast, and additional quiche on Sunday. We stayed in the older section first night and the bed was uncomfortable. Host was very...

House was beautiful, staff was extremely helpful. Tea and wine in the afternoons, breakfast in the morning was great. There's a basement wine cellar with games to play, dozens of sitting areas with fireplaces, and beautiful roof decks. Already planning our next trip!

After three consecutive annual Fall visits to this magnificent establishment, we have found this venue to be totally comfortable and enjoyable. It is a break from the vagaries of the real world. The ambiance and décor are impeccable, punctuated with artwork. The preservation of the main house is outstanding. The owner (Skip) and staff (Linda and John) are the epitome... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate input from our guests. We are sorry about your disappointment with breakfast. County guidelines for properties of five or more units (small hotels) have mandated changes. Since you felt our staff did not clearly explain the reason for the changes to our usual breakfast, I am sorry... More

We stayed at the 1708 House for one night in Southampton (we regret not staying longer!). The Hotel is very charming and beautiful inside and out. The room was well kept, clean and very comfortable. Our only tiny complain there would be that the pillows didn't have much to them. While you have access to your own room you also... More

Charming, lovely place to stay right in the center of Southhampton but amazingly quiet as well. Rooms were big, beds large and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. All the rooms had private bathrooms.

I love the 1708 House! This was our second stay and it was just as good. The accommodations are quaint, clean and welcoming. The location is perfection as you can walk to town and a beach pass comes with your stay which is like gold!

The house was known to exist in 1708 and has a museum-like cellar dating to approximately 1648 which is open to its guests as a cozy getaway for a game of chess or cards, in front of a roaring fire.

In addition, the property has two-bedroom cottages which are perfect for families. Its central location in the Village is perfect for walking to shops, galleries, restaurants, the renowned ocean beaches, which are only a mile away, and many points of interest in the area. Stays include a sumptuous daily breakfast and afternoon tea to be enjoyed in the formal living room, or inviting library, both of which have fireplaces.
