A vintage Kronan bike rolls past, and the sound takes you back to simpler times. Swirling your Pisco Sour of the front porch of the Maidstone, you remind yourself that being of-age does have its charms.
Here in the Hamptons, the good life flows in an unceasing tide. Celebrities and those chasing such status come in droves, as do those simply seeking a weekend excuse to get out of Dodge.
The Maidstone takes a slice of Scandinavian design, and plunks it square in the Hamptons. 19 unique rooms are turned out with all sorts of charming and funky furniture pieces. Whether you opt for a Divine Room, or a Cozy Room, you'll get a Hästens bed, flat-panel TV, organic Hamptons Coffee, and WiFi. For those that like a little swarthiness in their accommodations, opt for the Edvard Munch room, featuring a guilded headboard and brooding leather armchair.
When not enjoying a beach picnic, guests dine at the Living Room, where the rule of Slow Food governs the kitchen. Produce, meat, and poultry are all sourced locally based on the seasons, and taste even better in the eclectic-yet-sexy dining room.
