Weekend in the Hamptons
By Richard Rosser
TOPPING ROSE HOUSE, BRIDGEHAMPTON, NEW YORK
A weekend in the Hamptons — this beach bastion for New York’s upper crust includes stunning beaches lined with rolling dunes, fabulous restaurants and top-notch shopping. Four towns comprise what’s referred to as “The Hamptons” on the south fork of Long Island, and Bridgehampton is tucked between South and Easthampton. This small hamlet is a bit more low-key than its neighbors to the east and west but is still big on charm.
The place to stay is the Topping Rose House, a luxury hotel in a 19th-century mansion. The property is also a member of the esteemed Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Guests will enjoy the juxtaposition of modern comforts and design to the traditional architecture and surroundings. The hotel also includes a restaurant, lap pool, spa treatment studio, and a luxury car shuttle that can take you to the famed beaches that started it all.
The Jean George Restaurant on the property serves up farm-to-table cuisine from eastern Long Island’s farms and fishers, all with the famous casually elegant Hamptons vibe. The hotel also offers a spa with a dermatologist who offers full-service dermatology, including chemical peels, facials, Botox and fillers.
