I had the absolute pleasure of taking a tour of the renowned 1770 House in East Hampton, located in the heart of the East Hampton Village and steps away from the many shops and boutiques on Newtown Lane and Main St, restaurants, the library, the Guild Hall, the duck pond, and just minutes away from the ocean. How could one ask for a better location? The inn has an elegant, rustic interior with its original 18th century wood paneling and cozy fireplace in the sitting room, taking you back over a hundred years before the Hamptons was a busy summer getaway for the rich and famous.
Upon entering, I was promptly greeted by both the Manager, Carol, and the Innkeeper, Randye. Carol graciously took the time to show me around the dining room and introduced me to Executive Chef, Michael Rozzi. Chef Rozzi has been with The 1770 House for just about two years and one would immediately have the impression that he has been there for over a decade. His precision to detail, attentiveness to every aspect of the kitchen, and gracious manners is impeccably professional. The 1770 House is in fact “the real deal.” This is a rare find and if you have a chance to dine here in the near future, you will be utterly impressed.
I enjoyed an unforgettable, hearty, homemade breakfast at the Mill House Inn in East Hampton, located on North Main Street, tucked just behind the famous windmill. If you have never visited the Hamptons, I must recommend this charming, cozy inn to you. My husband and I took note of the beautifully manicured property, the generous amount of parking in the back, and the unbeatable convenience of how close they are to Newtown Lane Main Street corner in the East Hampton Village.
Upon entering the Inn, I met Courtney, who showed my husband and I, along with our Sarah, and we were graciously seated in the breakfast room that has about four tables with about four seats per table. There were two congenial women sitting at the table next to us; we ended up speaking with them for about twenty minutes or so. Sarah did well, my husband and I took turns strolling her outside, feeding her, until she went to sleep for the duration of our morning there. During our breakfast, I loved looking at the black and white photographs on the wall and the white and blue hydrangeas, and the porcelain bowls and pitchers lining the fireplace. I love those sentimental decorations that add such a lovely personal touch to the breakfast area.
