At a Glance

Housed in an eighteenth century home on Main Street, this small property is within walking distance of Southampton’s best shops and restaurants.


Another colonial charmer, the 1708 House dates back to the eighteenth century and four of the rooms retain period details, including exposed ceiling beams, clawfoot tubs and period furnishings provided by 1708 House Antiques—a boutique also owned by the innkeepers, Skip and Lorraine Ralph. The rest of the B&B’s 14 rooms are newer, though wooden floors, antique furniture and Persian rugs maintain the historical atmosphere. All guestrooms, though, have been updated with modern luxury amenities like plasma TVs, Ralph Lauren linens and radiant tile heating in the bathrooms. In the back garden area, there are three 2-bedroom cottages, two of which have their own private kitchens. The cottages, which are ideal for small families as children under twelve are not allowed to stay in the main house, have a beachier feel with lighter woods and fewer antiques. The B&B’s convenient location steps from Main Street, right next door to Saks Fifth Avenue a block away from the shops and restaurants of Job Lane. The actual beach, though, is a good 20-minute walk away so if you’re lucky enough to score a room here, you should still bring (or rent) a car.
