There's no need to take a flight or drive for hours to enjoy a luxurious staycation on Long Island. The Hedges Inn, in East Hampton, NY, is an easy drive from most places on Long Island, and if you're coming from work in the city, you can hop on the Long Island Rail Road to spend time at this historic property. Originally built as a residence for the Hedges family in 1652, the completely renovated house is now on the National Register of Historic Places, and functions as an upscale escape for Long Islanders and visitors from far and wide.

The Hedges Inn is located at 74 James Lane, East Hampton, across the street from a serene pond where swans gently swim. With 12 guest rooms, a front porch with rocking chairs, two acres of lush gardens and an expansive, covered outdoor patio, the inn is close to the chic shopping, dining and theater district of this fabled Hamptons town.
