Hamptons Heaven

I've always wanted to visit The Hamptons. Once, I almost got there, except I had stupidly jumped on the train at Columbus Circle that was heading to the Bronx instead of Penn Station. So, until I make it back to the U.S., I can always drive a few hours up the road to this place:


It's very Ralph Lauren, with lots of white and timber, with seaside paraphernalia like lobster pots, fishing rods and framed marine prints. There is this amazing ceiling lined with limed boards and this gorgeous light fitting:


Blue-patterned plate anyone?


 This window frames not only the lovely sailing ship, but the boats in the marina beyond:


This stairwell is beautiful isn't it?


Couldn't you just sit here in these comfy lounges all afternoon with a glass of red?:
              

And gaze at this view of the pool and marina:


And best of all, I don't have to go all the way to the Hamptons. This wonderful place is Merrett's restaurant at Peppers Anchorage at Port Stevens on the NSW coast. The place to go for a Hamptons fix!

Lucky for me I live so close to this exquisite place. It's a favourite holiday destination or our family. I might have to book here again! G. X

Beth what lovely pics...wish l'd known about Merrets when l visited Port Stevens a couple of years ago (just for a day). It has such a beachy, relaxed feel...the vaulted ceiling is amazing as is your pic of the yacht in the window.
