The Hamptons have been immortalized in film and literature as one of America’s most charming and storied summer getaways. With gorgeous beaches and picturesque cottages dotting the Atlantic coast, East Hampton has long crossed old world sumptuousness with breezy, pastoral delight. c/o The Maidstone continues in this tradition, offering guests a cozy yet quietly luxurious beachside retreat, with a Swedish twist.
The façade of c/o The Maidstone echoes its staid neighbours, with exquisitely-maintained greenery offsetting the Greek Revival architecture. Enter, however, and one will find an intriguing combination of the comfortable and the eclectic. They’ve crafted an enticing balance between a homey and welcoming ambiance and the avant-garde, with the latest in Scandinavian art adorning its vibrantly patterned walls. The rooms and cottages are each named and inspired by Scandinavians of note. The Hans Christian
Andersen room is whimsically decorated with callbacks to his stories, while the hotel refers to the Edward Munch room as “fantastically lugubrious.”
The Maidstone’s restaurant, The Living Room, reflects the warm, welcoming atmosphere the hotel cultivates. The dishes echo the comfort foods of childhood while incorporating sophisticated twists and slow-food ethics. With amenities specifically designed for children and a happy hour for hounds, c/o the Maidstone welcomes all guests.
