My wife and I have stayed at the 1708 House on many occasions, and have always found each experience to be consistently excellent. We would choose no other place to stay when visiting our daughter who lives in a nearby township. The restoration itself is outstanding, the service most accommodating, and the opportunity for privacy and relaxation very comforting. Dr...

1708 House Is a charming old historic B&B, in a wonderful location in Southampton. The building has been wonderfully restored, and the wine Cellar shows off the original old foundations. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We arrived on a Sunday evening in mid September, and there was a buffet with Tea, coffee and small cakes and chocolates available...

Many thanks for the positive comments and compliments. We are glad you appreciated the charm of one of Southampton Village’s oldest properties. With respect to your displeasure with breakfast, I would like to share with other readers that we offer our many guests a sumptuous “serve yourself” cold buffet which lasts close to three hours; and, in addition, cooked eggs...

We stayed at 1708 House during the September 28-30, 2012 weekend. We had 3 couples and stayed here for a Long Island Wine Country weekend. While the weather wasn't as nice as we had hoped (rainy and cool most of the time), we had a great time. 1708 House was fantastic and even exceeded our expectations (which were very high)....

Have stayed at many B&Bs, but this is one of the very best.... It just has great Karma...the people who run it are really nice and you immediately feel like you're in a friend's house. The place is lovely with just the perfect amount of updating to make the place warm and cozy on a brisk Fall evening, but it...

I stayed at the inn the night of Hurricane Sandy as I lost power at my house. The inn had power and the best breakfast! I loved the luxurious bed with the incredible sheets. The room and bath were immaculate and well stocked - even with toothbrushes and colgate toothpaste. The furnishings were perfect to create a sense of country...

We took advantage of an online special and stayed one night midweek. Wonderful! Ask for room #3 as it has beautiful wood beams, yet there is great light in the room. There are charming appointments.

First the good - it's all covered in the other reviews and it certainly is a beautiful house, lovingly restored and in an excellent location. Top notch and the large room and modern bathroom were very comfortable. So no complaints at all on that score. But we failed to recognise the service experience others have enjoyed. After arriving latish (9pm),...

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.
