With the recent passing of Labor Day and the “unofficial end of summer” come and gone, now is the perfect time to get away while the weather is still nice but the crowds (and costs) have lessened. It’s called shoulder season, and it is the time between high and low season in the travel market.
East Hampton, NY – The Baker House 1650
The Baker House 1650
East Hampton is located at the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. From beautiful mansions to pristine beaches, designer shops to jaw-dropping nurseries, the Hamptons are exquisitely picturesque. But from Memorial Day through Labor Day not only can finding a room be difficult, the throngs of people traversing the main highways to get out there can be paralyzing (literally and figuratively). So why fight the crowds? Take advantage of the shoulder season and make a trip during September & October. The Baker House 1650, located on Main Street in East Hampton is an award-winning inn offering beautiful accommodations and top-of-line services and amenities.
Missoula, MT – Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast
