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.
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.
How to Get There
I really liked this place. The public spaces are quite lovely and the room was modern, well furnished and very clean. The pool was very inviting and the staff was very helpful. However, our room on the second floor facing the parking lot, which was expensive, but not crazy expensive like the rooms facing the bay, had flaws. The room faced east and the blinds on the windows do not block the morning sun (the crazy expensive rooms have heavy drapes). The air conditioner made too much noise.
My wife & I had celebrated our anniversary last year & enjoyed our stay so much that this past December we reserved to go again for our 50th this july.
I called Pascal Riffaud the concierge mgr.just to let him know we picked Baron's cove for this big day & when we checked in there was a bottle of champagne chilled in our room .The hotel is 5 star with all the accomodations from the check in to the room,the dinning room & deck for breakfast ,lunch & dinner.The attentive staff at the pool is quick with towels & food .
Had an enjoyable time in the Fall when my son was an infant. We went for a one-night getaway and had dinner at the restaurant which was very enjoyable. Rooms are spacious, very clean and quiet. Easily walkable to Main Street area and water. Note, no beach.
This hotel has an awesome restaurant and bar and the rooms are beachy, clean, and perfect for mixing a summer drink and relaxing. Walking distance to everything downtown in Sag Harbor. Love this place!
This is a great location to stay to be off the beaten path but also to be right in the middle of everything. Downtown entertainment is a close 10 min walk away for great shopping and dining. Rooms are comfortable and accommodating. The front veranda is a lovely place to sit in the evening and watch the sunset. They offer great amenities from yoga, spa, water activities, and bicycling. Our concierge, Pascal, was very helpful in making reservations and suggestions duringr our stay. The decor is perfect. I felt like I was in a movie.
