On the Market: Grey Gardens For Summer Rental

Grey Gardens, the once squalor-filled Hamptons mansion that was the home of "Big Edie" and "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale, aunt and first cousin of Jackie O., and the subject of HBO's recent flick of the same name, can be yours for $30,000 this Summer. Current owners journalist Sally Quinn and husband Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee are renting out their East Hampton mansion from August 28 to Labor Day. Thirty thousand for 11 days in a former garbage-strewn home? Well, the turn-of-the-century house has since undergone an intensive renovation, and Long Island is nice in the Summer.

Glad its been restored but $30,000 for 11 days??? I don't think so, I don't care what history it carries. Interesting that Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn now own it though.

The renovation is gorgeous, but it would creep me out staying there knowing how it was. That scene in the movie when the health inspectors go in there gives me the creeps every time!

It's a beautiful house. However, I've heard the owners say that it still smells like cats when it rains even though they had to basically bomb the entire thing. No thank you.
