New-world comfort meets golden age glamour at this Long Island retreat
Whether you’re escaping the bustle of Manhattan or you’ve just flown in, Topping Rose House is the ideal island refuge. A renovated 19th-century mansion near Long Island’s eastern shore, it blends stylish heritage with cool, contemporary comforts. And as the only full-service hotel in the Hamptons, it’s rather special.
Make your way inside and get cosy by a blazing fire in winter. In warmer months, sip cocktails by the pool or on the perfectly manicured lawns. High ceilings, minimalist white walls and a bespoke art collection make for restful communal areas and suites inside. There’s also a spa offering Farmaesthetics treatments, and a space for revitalising yoga.
Further afield, a classic Hamptons summer makes the area’s beautiful beaches a must – and with Topping Rose House’s free shuttle service, they’re easy to reach. Or scoot down to nearby Bridgehampton in a Land Rover, courtesy of the hotel. Long Island is also famed for its vineyards and – of course – the Gatsby-style mansions on its Gold Coast. If you’d like to get active, ask the staff about hiring bicycles, teeing off on one of Bridgehampton’s golf courses, or embarking on one of the area’s beautiful coastal walks.
Enjoy your stay!
