Over the weekend, a family wedding drove us out to the Hamptons, where we booked a room at the quaint 1708 House, a 15-year-old bed and breakfast whose building dates back to—you guessed it—1708. Joe Biden, Kristin Davis (that's Charlotte from Sex and the City), and even Bill Marriott have all stayed here as guests.

Some of the B&B's main selling points include a small patio that connects the different wings of the house (perfect for afternoon tea, which is served complimentary every day, buffet-style), a charming dining room with the original wooden ceiling beams, and a hammock in the backyard.

But it's what we discovered in Room A that made us even happier: a gigantic bathroom with marble finishes, a wide jacuzzi tub with separate shower stall, Molton Brown toiletries, and the largest vanity we've seen in a hotel since moving to New York.

Parting with our beloved bathroom even for a few hours to attend the wedding (which was lovely) was difficult. But we managed to pull through.

As shown in the photos above, the bathroom was bright, immaculate, and gorgeously laid-out, with a wide countertop for toiletry bags, hairdryers, etc, and a pair of windows with matching white shutters next to the tub, perfect for gazing out on nearby Main St while you're soaking. And since we're not generally fans of TVs or telephones in the bathroom anyway, the fact that our bathroom had neither suited us just fine.

Other small details, like the marble framing the shower stall, the pewter soap dish, the bidet, and the twin hooks by the shower door, all contributed to the bathroom's attractiveness as well as its functionality.

And yes, we swiped an extra bottle of M&B moisturizer on our way out. Had to take at least one tiny souvenir home with us, right?

We paid $450/night for our room, which included breakfast, afternoon tea, WiFi (which wasn't that great), and a beach parking pass. Though as the summer season draws to an end, rates will likely drop closer to $300/night or even $275/night.
