The Hedges Inn, East Hampton

The iconic white inn across from East Hampton’s town pond boasts history and charm like no other on Long Island’s East End. In 2016, The Hedges Inn, an quaint colonial B&B, underwent a refreshing and luxurious facelift. The renovation added state-of-the-art amenities to each of the beautiful guest rooms and updated the overall look of the property, which is named after one of the first families to settle in the Hamptons. For a small wedding, guests are able to stay right on the 13-room property, otherwise there are plenty of accommodation options nearby to host additional friends and family. The sprawling green lawn provides a gorgeous space for an outdoor ceremony, and they even have a covered area perfect for a dance floor. Best of all, it’s one of the most spacious estates in the Hamptons with plenty of parking onsite, and a lovely couple as the management team helping to run the show.

Set on four grassy acres in the shadows of the Catskill Mountains, Barn on the Pond is an idyllic Hudson Valley retreat. The recently renovated red barn sleeps 14 and has all the amenities (and then some) needed for a memorable wedding. Barn on the Pond also offers in-house chefs and caterers, and has contacts with local florists and wedding planners, eliminating the need for any stress. A sprawling, lush lawn with tranquil pond and storybook red barn as your backdrop in the heart of the Catskills? We’d say “I do” too.

The Relais & Chateaux property is owned by actor Richard Gere, along with fellow neighborhood friends, and it has two outstanding restaurants owned and operated by award-winning chef Michael White and the illustrious NYC-based Altamarea group. Pretty impressive for an 8-room country inn—and it’s only about an hour away from NYC!
