Gansett Green Manor, Amagansett, New York

What, can’t afford a second house in the Hamptons? Don’t have a house-share with 20 friends? Rent one of Gansett Green’s 13 cottages and studios and it’s yours for a few days. We like the charm of the Caribbean cottage best. The Manor has no food service, but you’ll have concierge assistance for reservations at the highly selective Hamptons dining scene nearby.

Field trip: The Farmer’s Market on weekend mornings is a sight to behold. Grab coffee, a pastry, The New York Times, and a seat on the lawn, and watch it all go by.

Night out: Cittanuova in East Hampton is a lively spot, with all the Hamptons beauties nibbling on steamed mussels and such.

Rates: $275–$650/night for cottages for two to six; 631/267-3133 or gansettgreenmanor.com
