A Hampton Hotel without industrial carpeting, wall-unit A/C and 2am brawls at the on-site nightclub. Mixing the mood of London design with the summertime laze of Amagansett, The Inn at Windmill Lane, formerly known as The Reform Club, offers a beach-convenient hideaway free of so many of the negatives associated with local hospitality. Just past the shopping streets of East Hampton, visitors arrive to a subdued lane of cedar shingled home and manicured path leading to the stylish inn.
The Inn at Windmill Lane is set within a lavish swath of deep-green lawn with reclaimed brick walkways leading to the main interior space of the hotel. Guests paying upwards of $700 per night in the summer keep to themselves along private patios, small seating areas and compact lobby with pooltable and communal kitchen conducive to late afternoon bottles of Merlot. The hotel offers the convenient perks of beach parking passes, bikes and continental breakfast after a sort-stint in the on-site gym offering treadmills, elliptical machine and cardio bike.
A total of seven suites and three free-standing cottages are divine in their details offering Ralph Lauren meets Waterworks-inspired spaces with white-tile fireplaces and muted white walls enveloped in glossy wainscoting. Bathrooms are compactly exquisite with veiny white and grey marble offsetting white porcelain sings and shiny chrome fixtures. Beds are made with Matteo linens on Duxiana mattress that's probably even better than the one you have back in the city. Larger rooms feature small kitchenettes with marble top, mini-fridge and counter eating area with industrial metal barstools. Walls, especially in the suites, are adorned with gallery-worthy Stephen Farthing and Dan Rizzie.
