Fodor's Expert Review c/o The Maidstone Arms Inn

207 Main St., East Hampton, New York, 11937, USA

A hip and sophisticated take on a classic Greek Revival inn, this town-center lodging has been in operation since the 1870s, but its current owners, a Swedish hospitality group, have endowed it with cool Scandinavian flair. Each of its spacious and luxurious rooms and cottages is uniquely designed and inspired by artists, designers, writers, and scientists, ranging from modern edge to cozy traditional. Rooms in the three cottages can be rented singly or combined to accommodate larger groups, making it a family-friendly option. In the restaurant the chef prepares sumptuous daily specials using fresh local seafood and produce as well as Swedish imports like Västerbotten cheese. The garden hosts live music, cocktails, an Ping-Pong on weekends. A continental Scandinavian breakfast is included in high season and on weekends in the off-season.
