The Chequit officially opened on Memorial Day Weekend as the hotel celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Originally built in 1872 as a meeting hall, the space was transformed into an inn in 1909. 

Known for its live music and late-night cocktail parties, The Chequit became an instant celebrity hangout in the Golden Age of Hollywood with Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, the Kennedys and rumored Frank Sinatra among its most famous guests.

In 2020, Soloviev Group (with Stacey Soloviev acting as Director of Community Relations) purchased and restored the property in harmony with what was already there; fusing luxury with state-of-the-art amenities, all while paying homage to its rich history.

Inspired in spirit and style by the glamorous 1940s, the look and feel of the 35-room inn is warm and inviting

Upon entering, guests are immediately charmed by the semi-private areas featuring fire pits and a wrap-around porch with Adirondack chairs and sofas

With just 35 rooms (spread across 3 buildings), the recently remodeled inn has all the luxurious amenities of a large hotel, but with an intimate, relaxed atmosphere.

Inspired in spirit and style by the glamorous 1940s, the look has been carefully curated and rooted in cozy neutrals with a hint of nautical flair.

Overlooking a Peconic River harbor, the design takes advantage of the breathtaking grounds by using as much outside space as possible.

Upon walking up, guests are immediately charmed by the wrap-around porch with Adirondack chairs and sofas and semi-private outdoor areas featuring fire pits (Smores soon to be added to the menu!).

And when you step inside, The Chequit just feels like home. 

The whimsical yet cozy design of the lobby outfitted with custom-designed furniture is warm and inviting. 

Remodeled in soft, muted shades of white and beige with hints of navy, brown and grey and decorated by art from local artists, it’s the perfect spot to relax, read a book or drink some bubbly.

Almost every guest room is unique in design but are all spacious and airy; fully renovated with soft lighting, warm wood accents, shiplap walls and custom drapery, and some even boast clawfoot tubs.
