The scoop: This newly renovated, pet-friendly boutique hotel is just a mile from the ocean and within easy walking distance of the picturesque village of East Hampton. It’s a mix of Long Island’s South Fork chic, Scandinavian sophisticated (the bathrooms are dedicated to Greta Garbo and Ingmar Bergman) and haute homey.
Amenities: Complimentary beach parking, passes and towels; special treats and room-service options for pets. A concierge can recommend scenic bike routes and arrange for pet walkers and groomers, babysitters, massage therapists, and other services.
Don’t miss: Swedish pancakes with cloudberries and whipped cream for breakfast, and seasonal, sustainable, slow-food dining Scandinavian-style at the on-site Living Room restaurant.
