The 200-year-old Quogue Club at Hallock House was the village’s first true hotel, and by 2012 it was showing signs of age and disrepair. Under the design guidance of Stuart Disston of Austin Patterson Disston Architects of Quogue, the building was fully renovated and restored with a sweeping front porch and façade that mirror the original.

Guests enter the hotel through double doors and are welcomed by a well-appointed display of books. The front foyer offers the opportunity to relax and read with a desk/console by Alexa Hampton for Hickory Chair, a stunning chandelier from Visual Comfort Chandelier and Stark’s Kurien carpet.

Architect Stuart Disston designed this living room with its inviting fireplace and gracious architectural detailing, making it ideal spot for guests to gather. Alexa Hampton’s Perlini mirror for Hickory Chair adds an elegant antique look to the room, which is complemented by sconces designed by Hampton for Visual Comfort and her Hickory Chair ottoman.

Removed from the coming and goings of guests, The Quogue Club’s library provides a refreshingly elegant setting with a serene painting by Vietnamese artist Ha Manh Thang. The coffee table and curved back chair are Alexa Hampton for Hickory Chair and the ceiling fixture is by Alexa Hampton for Visual Comfort.

“The perfect space for a drink, meal or lounging by the fire, the bar is welcoming with the combination of classic mahogany and striking blue wall color,” says Disston. Above the mantle hangs a photograph by Lynn Crowe with pendant lights by Visual Comfort. The space is completed with a carpet by Stark and Hickory Chair’s Isaac Wing chairs.

Adjacent to the bar is a dining room that can be opened to the terrace via French doors in the summer months. Hickory Chair’s Bistro Banquettes were customized to fit the space and upholstered in fabric from Pindler & Pindler. Currey and Company’s Treesmill Chandelier hangs above.

The card room is a true game room, ideal for groups of bridge players, backgammon or mahjong. Architect Stuart Disston designed the space with a coffered ceiling and transom windows, architectural elements found throughout The Quogue Club. A pair of Quatrafoil Table Lamps from Visual Comfort sit on a sideboard designed by Alexa Hampton for Hickory Chair and flank a painting by Donna Levy. The game chairs in the space are Alexa Hampton’s Leelee Side Chairs for Hickory Chair.

The hotel features 14 rooms and two guest cottages, each designed with luxury and comfort in mind. The guest room above features a chest by Hickory Chair and table lamp by Alexa Hampton for Visual Comfort. Farrow and Ball’s Light Blue provides an air of calm to the space.

The outdoor patio space was designed by Disston as a true courtyard. Set in the back of the building, the terrace provides a private setting for additional dining and lounging.

In the 19th century, the front porch provided guests with an important social activity: the opportunity to watch passers-by on Quogue’s main street. Two centuries later it’s a welcoming invitation to sit and relax.
