A Historic Inn is Reimagined in Hampton Bays

By Shelley Levitt

Canoe Place Inn & Cottages is on the site of America’s oldest inn (Canoe Place Inn), which dates to 1697. It began as a trading station on the East End of Long Island and was transformed into a hotel, which was a station-stop inn that hosted Revolutionary War soldiers, as well as presidents, and celebrities.

Now, the property has been meticulously restored to preserve its rich history while also featuring contemporary amenities to accommodate modern events.

Canoe Place Inn & Cottages includes 20 guest rooms, five rebuilt guest cottages, and, across Shinnecock Canal, 37 luxury residences. The 6-acre property features a 5,087-square-foot Grand Ballroom with soaring ceilings that seats up to 330 guests for dinner. Adjacent to the ballroom is a separate 2,454-square-foot window-wrapped Pavilion and two dramatic spaces for outdoor events. Venues are equipped for sophisticated event production featuring advanced technology, carefully planned load-in logistics, and a central kitchen. The property is also home to the restaurant Good Ground Tavern, bars, a full-service ONDA Beauty spa, and an outdoor pool.

“From weddings to corporate retreats, engaging programming to unexpected entertainers, our talented team is excited to welcome guests to some of the area’s most talked about events and experiences,” says Maria Lupardo, director of catering and events. “Just 90 miles from New York City and minutes from the North and South Forks of the Hamptons, accessibility is just one of the many highlights of this classic-but-cool canal-front enclave in Hampton Bays.”
