“Do not stay here!”
Reviewed September 12, 2004

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 after hearing the story)

Terrible conditions, house was not well kept. It's old, rundown and in need of a paint job, and repairs. Stayed there on a Saturday night in July 2004. Asked for private bathroom; electricity and lighting in bathroom did not work, sparks and electrical shorts occured when turning on the lights. We were not able to take shower and ruined our Saturday night in the Hamptons. Insects and bugs were also found in the room. No locks on the room door, front door is also not locked, potential security and safety concerns. Owner was not friendly and was not willing to lower the price due to faulty bathroom and lack of electricity. Do not stay in this rundown "B&B". If you are looking for a nice B&B place to stay in the Hamptons this is definately not the place, do not stay here, you will be very disappointed with the lack of quality, service, lack of security, electrical concerns and accomodations. The place is a dump. Stay away!!

No matter what you are looking for, whether it be some time alone, a romantic get-a-way, or just out for fun, I highly recommend The Bassett House. Having always stayed in hotels, i had never been to a Bed & Breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. Within minutes of my arrival i felt totally at home. The accommodations were beautiful and i couldn't have asked more from a host. Thank you Michael. This was truly a memorable experience and i look forward to returning soon. Kathy
