EAST HAMPTON, NY (September 22, 2016) – Fall can be fun in the Hamptons, especially with its slower pace than the summer months. The eclectic c/o The Maidstone Hotel is the centerpiece for activities for visitors and locals alike.
- The Fall Harvest: This package offers guests the opportunity for a relaxing getaway. Guests will receive a voucher for 20 percent off dinner in the hotel’s inspiring Living Room Restaurant and a late checkout of 1 p.m. as well as two tickets to a standard wine tasting at Wolffer Estates Vinyards. There is a two-night minimum (Sunday through Thursday) in any of the 19 unique hotel rooms or cottages. The Fall Harvest package is available now through November 30 but is not valid on holidays. While staying at c/o The Maidstone, guests have the option to use the hotel’s red vintage Kronan bikes or enjoy a short walk to the beach or into town.
- Ladies Night: This is a continuation of an event created this summer by General Manager Tara Rothberg. Held on the first Tuesday of every month, a portion of the proceeds from the vendors are donated to a charity. In October, each of the vendors will donate to a Breast Cancer organization of their choice.
- Happy Hour & Yappy Hour: The dog-friendly c/o The Maidstone is welcoming to everyone and is a popular place to hang out without staying overnight. Every Sunday through Thursday from 4-6 p.m., it’s 50 percent off drinks and appetizers for human guests and a special doggie menu filled with innovative treats for the four-legged guests.
- The Scandinavian-inspired boutique hotel, which is open for lunch and dinner, features a three-course prixe fix dinner Sunday through Friday from 5:30-7 p.m. at The Living Room, which adheres to the Slow Food movement’s principles, with a Scandinavian twist. The restaurant prioritizes using organic, locally sourced ingredients as well as herbs from their own garden and fish from the waters around Long Island. All breads, pastries and Swedish cookies are made in the on-site bakery.
Guests who stay at c/o The Maidstone beginning on Oct. 1 are in for a treat as they will be among the first to enjoy filmmaker and hotelier Jonathan Baker’s line of 100 percent organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash — est-1962. The scent is clean and classic with no harsh perfumes.
Baker, who co-owns c/o The Maidstone with his wife Jenny Ljungberg and was born in 1962, is a creator of stories through film, music and fashion and the new line is an extension of his story-telling. He is currently directing and producing the thriller film Inconceivable, starring Oscar winners Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway and co-starring Nicky Whelan. The film is set for a 2017 release date.
“Nothing pleases me more than to have people share stories of their experience with est-1962,” said Baker. “What better way for the line to be experienced than through the sensual hotel. The community of guests that stay there are in for a real treat; once discovered, never forgotten.”
The easily recognizable hotel that is housed on a 19th century property already sells the est-1962 body spray, aromatherapy candle and body oil; samples of the body oil are in the 19 rooms and cottages.
“The beauty of working in a boutique hotel is that we get to curate and pick the top products that we love and share them with our guests,” said Rothberg, who became GM in May. “I am so excited to have est-1962 as our in-room amenities. We are for love and romance at the Maidstone Hotel and to have organic products that feel amazing to the touch is a dream come true. I believe our couples will love the new line of products as well as the body oil and lotion.”
