Michael Weber

Scene Maker: Topping Rose House, the Hamptons, New York

8 of 72

Though the first-floor restaurant of this hotel, run by celebrity chef Tom Colicchio, is packed with a who’s who of Manhattanites, the overall atmosphere is still refreshingly low-key. You can idle away in the saltwater lap pool or roam the property’s crab apple orchards. Stay in the 1842 Greek Revival main house, reimagined with a modern twist by design maven Champalimaud Design, or in one of the four sleek stand-alone cottages. toppingrosehouse.com. $$$$
