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.

Motel Room
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

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.

Quite average, you can do better.

For nearly $300 a night I wouldn't expect to be in a room right next to the laundry. The noise was constant between 9am-10pm and at times shook the walls and bedside tables. The ceilings were low and it was like being in a basement room. I called the front desk to complain and was brought ear plugs. This shows a bit of contempt for guests, and ultimately no one should be put in that room (126, avoid at all costs). The management are fully aware of how loud it is.

Otherwise the hotel was nice, the bar was lovely, though the complimentary hot chocolate was basically Swiss Miss in a paper cup.

All in all not a bad hotel, but a rip off.

Cozy Winter Getaway

This is our 2nd time here in the Winter. We love it. The lounge is so cozy with a nice big warm fireplace and great seating areas. The rooms are open and bright with nice decor. A short walk to Main Street restaurants and shopping. i would like to make this a yearly winter tradition.

Cozy Christmas
Reviewed 2 months ago

I Stumbled on a Groupon for Barons Cove. We Received a good price for the Harbor Loft Suite. We had a very friendly welcome & check in. We were offered complimentary champagne. We enjoyed our champagne in the cozy lobby bar. The bar/lobby had a roaring fire & was decorated for the holidays with magnolia leaf garland and a nautical themed Christmas tree. The Harbor Loft Suite was 2 story, with a bedroom loft and soaring ceilings, the windows and doors overlooking the harbor. A balcony with a view of the twinkling lights in the main lobby, the crackling outdoor fireplace and outdoor Christmas tree was so festive . After a night out we spent some more time in the lobby bar. The bartender was a bit slow & they seemed to be out of almost everything on the holiday drink menu, but the atmosphere is great. & we certainly found something to drink. We Sat outside underneath the heaters and by the fireplace, It was My favorite spot. Before checking out we took advantage of the Sunday brunch. I Highly recommend the burger with egg. Barons Cove will be an annual visit for us. The surrounding area is very festive for the holidays and there are many things to do such as Tate’s Bake Shop, Wolffer Estate Vineyards, Channing Daughters Vineyard, Parish Art Museum and much more. We Highly recommend The Palm E Hampton for dinner

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
