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
We followed a 2nd floor wood walkway to, what seemed like, an ordinary hotel door, to my delight, there was no ordinary room behind it…soft rays of sunshine beckoned us past a marble topped wet bar equipped w/ wine glasses & Keurig (covering all the bases) into a wide-open, tastefully sea-scaped living room w/a huge “L” shaped sofa, ever closer to the sliding glass door leading to what would be (I anticipated) a view as serene and beautiful as any an artist could have paint. Gentle ripples of water weave through a small school of sea vessel from single man wooden fishing boats to luxury Yachts; a small clear blue lap pool surrounded by striped cabanas’ separated me from the boat docks as well as the Inn’s Bar. From the Baron's Cove Bar with its dark, heavily mantled old world fireplace, its aged hardwood floors and wing-backed chairs, out to the deck where alfresco dinning is encourage, on to the petite sized lush green lawn with its Adirondack chairs (where we enjoyed evening cocktails and appetizers), this Inn has “charm” as its middle name. Baron's Cove is not selfish; it shares its charm with Sag Harbor a once booming whaling village now listed on the National Register of Historic Places...honestly I could go on and on. Our early Fall visit was nothing short of perfect timing; more economical, beautiful weather, no crowds, lines or waiting at restaurants, museums, light house, ferry’s, wineries… The Inn at Barons Cove~~…It won’t ever be forgotten
A most enjoyable experience each time we visit Sag Harbor and the East End of Long Island. Great relaxing view as the you enjoy the cuisine provided for at the property. Always a plus when you see a welcoming smiling face to enhance the experience. On more than one occasion, Kasia Grela has greeted us at the property. She has been quite helpful and accommodating whenever we have a question about the property or the area. She is a tremendous asset to the Barron's Cove facility.
Room was lovely, clean and everything that you would need. We were able to get a breakfast package but thought the prices were high for a breakfast. View was beautiful, music playing was not to our liking. Surprise there is only one place on top floor to get ice. Our floor was on ground level, opposite of complex.
