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 were able to check in at 3 PM by the friendly and helpful front desk. We had a first floor room west village. Room was nice, clean and roomy. I loved that there was no shower curtain in the bathroom. The management needs to spot check the cleaning staff. We had no wash clothes and they had a little sign asking women to use makeup remover, but there was no makeup remover to use. Room had a very small frig and a safe. I liked the private little patio area even though we didn't get to use it. I wish the staff would have mentioned that they serve complimentary coffee and tea in the morning, we went out to find a store to get tea. I was also surprised with a resort fee that was tacked on. I questioned it and was told so we could use the WiFi, bikes, pool etc. even though we couldn't use them because of the cold and rain. Even with the small issues we are planning a return trip in the Fall.
i recently stayed at the barons cove in sag harbour. the location is great. right across the street from the water and close to the main area. the lobby is nice and has a fireplace in and out side.
i had to change rooms three times. our first room had mold smell before i even went inside. and obviously was even stronger once in the room. the second room still had a strong smell of mold but not like the first. the night manager said he had one room left to show us and that was his last. i did find that hard to believe considering it was march and not many people were staying at the hotel. it’s not high season! so here we were in the third and last room. there was a slight smell but we opened the screen door for the night and we took this room. the pillows are worn and not fluffy. the towels were stained and worn so much they were tattered and very dry from over use. overall it was fine at a groupon rate which is what we were on. if i were to have paid the ‘high’ season rate i would have left. this hotel should invest in upgrading the rooms and getting rid of the mold. nothing is worth that. not even seeing the water would make me stay here again. sorry
Baron's Cove did not disappoint. This place was scenic and very clean. A relaxing and private place. I will definitely visit again. The town was gorgeous too. Very quaint and charming. We also ate at their restaurant and was very pleased.
My wife and I visit this place frequently. The location is perfect and lobby bar is great.
What you don’t get here is front desk customer service (frequent turnover, they don’t remember returning guests). Also, check in time is 4pm. Don’t even try to check in early. They’ll treat you like you’re illiterate for not reading your check in email.
Another issue - they need an acoustics expert to fix the noises. You can hear everything (people next door, people walking outside the rooms).
This place truly benefits from a lack of nearby competition.
That being said, we’ll keep going back because we love Sag Harbor.
Had high hopes for this hotel. Unfortunately the room had a horrid smell as if they used way too much Fabreeze to try and cover up mold and must. Walls are super thin. It was so bad that I have a sore throat due to the stench. Would NEVER stay here again. Zero stars. What a dump.
