Overview

An all-American Sag Harbor icon with a heated saltwater pool, a seafood-centric restaurant and a harborfront location just steps from Main Street

The Look

Popular with America’s creative firebrands from the 1940s through the ’70s, the recently reopened Baron’s Cove resort in Sag Harbor carries with it all the charm of the era in which it was built. Everyone from Jackson Pollock to John Steinbeck, Truman Capote and Kurt Vonnegut bedded down at the historic waterfront resort, which now sports a classic, all-American look (think sailing-inspired art, reclaimed timbers and brass Ralph Lauren fixtures). Expanding on the resort’s original footprint, the newly constructed lobby building has an architectural style that evokes Sag Harbor village, with window shutters, multipane French doors and a white wraparound front porch complete with wooden rocking chairs.

Bed and Bath

The 67 village- and harbor-facing guestrooms are done in a timeless coastal style and feature crisp white linens, powder-blue bedside lamps and vintage nautical artworks from the area’s antiques stores. Garden Rooms have private gardens with teak patio furniture, whereas the bilevel Harbor Loft Suites feature private decks with pool and harbor views. You’ll find Aveda bath products, marble vanities and sleek doorless showers in the spacious subway tile–lined bathrooms.

Beyond

Wake up to a cappuccino and a buttery pastry on the patio, or make a morning of it and opt for a gourmet breakfast spread in the dining room. Afterward go for a scenic walk along the harborfront, then give your muscles a workout at a bootcamp class in the resort’s gym. Next, you can catch some rays and cool off in the saltwater pool or grab a stiff drink and watch the sunset from the front porch before heading to the hotel’s dining room for a dinner of crab cakes, caprese salad and expertly grilled burgers.

In the Area

Get your culture fix at Sag Harbor’s Whaling & Historical Museum, which houses a vast collection of whaling and maritime artifacts, then treat yourself to lunch (try to land a spot outdoors) at The American Hotel on Main Street. Peruse antique home furnishings and vintage artworks at Black Swan Antiques, or hop a shuttle (Baron’s Cove offers a free ride) to Foster Memorial Beach. Don’t have a fancy invite-only Hamptons party to attend? No problem. Bust a move at the Club at Philippe in East Hampton, one of the summer’s most buzzed-about nightlife hangouts in the Hamptons.

I ended up staying 3 extra nights I liked it so much. Great rooms and if you have dogs there are
rooms that have your own private fenced in patio. The bar area is great, the Christmas Tree is
beautiful and everyone at the front desk is helpful and kind. I WILL stay here again and recommend
Baron's Cove to everyone. Thank you all for a wonderful stay. Dana Rae

Perfect fall getaway!!

Spent two nights at this lovely property after attending a wedding in the area. From the moment we saw the welcoming exterior, we knew it was going to be a wonderful trip. The lobby is cozy & inviting, with a view of the roaring fire in the bar area. We were greeted by friendly and professional staff who made sure we felt right at home. Our room was BEAUTIFUL. It had a full outdoor seating area overlooking the harbor, a feature I took full advantage of later that evening to read & enjoy a warm beverage wrapped in a blanket. Perfection. Our suite was also spotless, spacious yet cozy and impeccably decorated. We dined at their on site restaurant later that evening, where I enjoyed a scallop dish that was absolute heaven and I still think about at least once a week. My dining partner ordered the steak and was also impressed. The next night we dined at the bar after a long day of exploring and lighthouse. The oysters & other small plates we ordered were delicious, drinks by the fire warmed us right up & staff was attentive to our needs. The whole way home we were planning our next trip out to Baron's Cove and are considering making it the destination for an annual fall vacation!

restaurant week

prix fixe menu. fried Calarami was delicious.

Main course choice of Blackfish was OK, not great.
Desert of Gelato very good.
Service was spotty and slow to begin. Then water classes were re-filled and food brought out on time and placed correctly in front of each of us.
Price of $29.95 per person was very reasonable and with 3 wines and one cocktail bill was $186. with tax for four.

This second floor restaurant overlooks the harbor and on clear days and in the summer ,the view is exciting. Unfortunately we went on a cold ,rainy night in
November. The dining room is very nice with a high ceiling.

Anniversary celebration
Reviewed 1 month ago

Went there with my wife this week for a romantic getaway for our 25th anniversary. Loved the place. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. They made us feel special for our celebration. They really took care to make us feel welcome. The rooms are very quaint and decorated in a beach theme as you would expect being so close to the water. The main building has charm. Looks like it's a well preserved 200 year old structure. The food in the restaurant was very good as well. Great views of Gardnier's Ba and a 2 block walk in to the town of Sag Harbor. Perfect location. We'll certainly be returning before our 50th.

AMAZING!!!!

We booked very last minute, as our plans changed. The room was EXCELLENT!! Fresh white linen on bed, everything was exceptionally clean. Bathroom was really nicely decorated. Parking was free & got a space right outside our room. The bar had fireplace & live music - it was a great atmosphere & all staff we encountered went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed.
