While not as elegant as Baker House 1650, the Hedges Inn still has a dynamite location and plenty of charm. Settle into a rocking chair on the front porch, which looks directly onto Town Pond, and take full advantage of both. The Hedges was refreshed with a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2008: Beadboard wainscoting, beachy pastel hues, antique reproduction furniture, and flat-screen TVs outfit the 12 rooms, which also have marble-clad bathrooms. The comfortable living room is a good place to watch movies and munch on popcorn; bring your own DVD, and the innkeeper will pop the corn. There's no restaurant, but East Hampton's eateries are a ten-minute walk away. And in lieu of a pool, guests receive passes to the East Hampton Gym, as well as everything required for a day on the shore: chairs, towels, a beach umbrella, a cooler, and a parking permit that's good for any strand between East Hampton Village and Montauk.
