Documented as one of the oldest continuously occupied structures in the United States, The Baker House 1650 and its history make it a truly a movie-worthy estate. Yet the patrons that frequent the establishment don’t come here for the flamboyant glitz of the Hamptons, but for the secluded, casual luxury it provides.
Located in East Hampton, just a two-hour drive from New York City, this extensive property was built in 1648 by a sea captain who chose the location for the central access to water and its notable serenity.
Founder and owner Antonella Bertello acquired the property almost 16 years ago who, at that time, lovingly coordinated a complete renovation of the Elizabethan-style estate, which stands the same as you see it today – absolutely flawless.
The property is divided into two spectacular homes: The Baker House and The Carriage House. Great care and attention to historical detail have been taken to preserve the unique features of both centuries-old homes.
From their original wood and slate floors to the exposed hand-sewn wooden beams, the integrity of what shaped the personality of each home remain untouched yet updated to the premiums of five-star luxury.
The boutique property features richly appointed rooms blending thoughtful technology and modern convenience into this icon of history. This Frette exclusive property means you will sleep - and even beach - on the softest sheets and towels known to man and you will find L’Occitane products in each bathroom. For guests needing more space to sprawl out, there are two expansive luxury suites in the Baker Carriage House that will definitely fit that qualification.
Around Valentine’s Day is always an exciting time for The Baker House as the property’s hidden treasure, The Baker Spa, comes alive. An intimate and indulgent environment featuring innovative spa treatments, magnificent facilities and the most gracious, expert service keep both individuals or couples in pure bliss.
Guests leave the world behind during one of the popular Oxygen Facials by the Swiss luxury skincare line, Luzern Labs, or opt for the ultimate in relaxation with the signature Deep Tissue Experience.
The Baker Spa features a stunning collection of signature treatments and also includes a spacious steam and dry sauna, pool, soaking tub, and private changing room – all perfect for getting away, refreshing and reconnecting.
The Baker House 1650 has been selected by Conde Nast Johansens, as the “Most Excellent Inn of the Americas” and was named “Inn of the Month” by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Town and Country said the property “offers the kind of plush accommodations that you’d expect to find in an area famous for its residential real estate.” Time Out New York said “the most distinctive B&B on the East End is so mind-boggling gorgeous that it’s hard to believe anyone is actually allowed to sleep here.”
We suggest you make it your business to visit The Baker House 1650, for here time stands still while luxury surrounds your every move.
