Tel: 631 324 4081's insider take:

East Hampton's Arts and Crafts–style Baker House is the most luxurious inn on the East End—and the most expensive. Rates soar to $950 (main house) and $1,750 (cottages) per night in the summer, but you do get what you pay for. The spacious Gardiner Suite—our favorite of the five original rooms—has a wood-burning fireplace, a two-person spa tub, and mullion windows overlooking the walled English gardens and the hotel's elegant infinity pool. The divine Maidstone Room counters with a sleigh bed and views of East Hampton's village green. Two guest suites are located in what was once the property's carriage house; outfitted with bamboo post beds and slate floors, this newer wing has a modern feel. Massages, facials, and body treatments are available in the guests-only spa (there's also an indoor pool, sauna, and steam showers), and guests receive coveted parking passes for East Hampton's nearby strands, such as Main Beach and Georgica. The well-stocked library and honor bar contribute to the sense of staying at a friend's glorious country home—that is, a well-connected friend who can help you secure reservations for the top tables in town.—Updated by Darrell Hartman
