History of The Roundtree, Amagansett

Since the 1700’s, the site of The Roundtree, Amagansett has served as an emblem of the historic legacy of Amagansett - the beautiful Hamptons town bordering the dunes of the Atlantic Ocean to its south and the vast farmlands to its north. Amagansett was founded between 1680 and 1700 by four families - the Baker’s, Conklin’s, Barnes, and the Schellinger’s, whose original homestead included The Roundtree, Amagansett.

A 250 year legacy

At the time, The Roundtree, Amagansett served as a working farm and did so for many years, its storied presence woven into the town’s landscape where one of our cottages dates back over 250 years. Our two-story main house, an iconic structure central to our property, goes back nearly 125 years.

In the last 50 years, the site has transformed into a hotel

Through education and preservation, we continue to honor the site’s history and legacy today.
