Are you planning a vacation for next summer or fall? Before you get up to your eyeballs in exotic hotel recommendations, shiny resort brochures, and cruise advertisements, may we suggest you consider a vacation rental in Bridgehampton?
You might say that Bridgehampton, in the exclusive Hamptons area of Long Island, has attracted people for centuries, and you’d be right; Southampton was founded in 1640, and Bridgehampton - named after the bridge that spanned Sagg Pond - was inaugurated in 1686. Tourists, of course, came quite a bit later. Here’s three reasons why Bridgehampton remains popular with vacationers from New York and all points east, south, west, and north:
There’s a beach. Enough said.
It’s a town that takes its history, culture, and relaxation seriously. There’s the Polo Club, the Chamber Music Festival, and the Historical Society. Of course, there’s also a golf course, built on a former race track. And when you need a little downtime, there’s a spa.
It’s varied: Where else can you find both a winery and a corn maze?
Another bonus for Bridgehampton - in fact, for most of the communities in this area - is the availability of lodging. Looking for a hotel or a bed and breakfast? You can take your pick. If you have a group or a large family, consider renting a vacation rental home, especially if you’d like a bit more space or privacy than a hotel usually offers. Either way, you’ll get a taste of the culture, history, and fun that have made the Hamptons a favorite vacation spot for many.
