No, you probably haven’t been here before, but it may look familiar because it provided the backdrop to Wedding Crashers’ hijinx. This manor house has 78 rooms, so it’s a quiet place to reflect on the changing seasons while looking at the sailboats drifting by. Located an hour outside of DC, this is an ideal escape from the city for a weekend of country living.
September to December is secretly the best time to go to the Hamptons, so avoid the crowds and head out east this Fall. Cozy up in one of the modern suites or cottages at Topping Rose, then indulge in a seasonal dinner at their Jean-George restaurant. The Hamptons aren’t all about pools and parties, you can taste local wines at nearby vineyards, go apple picking and bundle up for a crisp walk on the Atlantic ocean.
