What We Love
- Bikes for rent to take you to and from the beach
- The firepit, bocce courts and badminton create a fun, social vibe
- Woodsy setting away from the downtown hubbub
- Free WiFi and beach passes
What To Know
- Set a mile and a half from the restaurants and bars of Sag Harbor and five miles from the Sagg Main beach, so a car is recommended
- There is no one on staff overnight, so late arrivals should make check-in arrangements in advance
- No daily maid service unless arranged for in advance
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
Set on six wooded acres about a mile and a half from Sag Harbor, Forever Bungalows feels a world away from the $32 lobster rolls and expense account champagne of the Hamptons. A mix of standalone bungalows and a two-story renovated motor lodge, the summer camp vibe is decidedly more relaxed, friendly and easy on the wallet.
Bed and Bath
The no-fuss, no-muss rooms are definitely Ikea chic, with Swedish minimalism joining eco-friendly elements like recycled glass bathroom tiles and low-flow toilets. There’s a home-away-from-home vibe thanks to fridges, flat screens and, in bungalows, small kitchens. But this is definitely a no-frills, fun-in-the-sun setting. Request the penthouse or queen room for astro-turfed outdoor space.
Kick off your flip flops for a cold one around the firepit with other 20- and 30-somethings, who chat each other up over bocce and badminton games. The check-in area in the property’s former garage doubles as a hangout area, with general store offerings like ice cream sandwiches and sodas (beers and wine to come later this summer). There is no restaurant or bar, but the staff can give you the inside track on local eats.
In the Area
Rent a bike from the hotel, make a right into the neighboring Sag Harbor community golf course and wend your way a mile through the wooded paths to Barcelona Beach, an off-the-radar, locals spot. On the way back, stop at the teeny shack that doubles as the golf course clubhouse for $3 beers, the best deal in the Hamptons. When you’re ready to swank it up, head down to prime Sag Harbor for rose and lobster rolls overlooking the yacht club at Dock Side or impeccable Italian fare in the stylish garden of Tutto Il Giorno. Come winter, you can go ice skating nearby or on a nature walk.
How to Get There
I live in Bridgehampton, but had some guest staying at my home over Thanksgiving. It was also my 60th Birthday. I called and Adian could not of been any more helpful he made my check in so easy, accommodated any special request I had, and even stoped by to make sure I was pleased with my room on the way to his family's dinner.
The room was immaculate, very contemporary decor which was very colorful and pleasing. There was always someone to help if needed.
I can't wait to go back!
Thank you Adrian and all Of the delightful associates at "My Forever Bungalows".
We were greeted with surprised looks as our Groupon reservations apparently caused us as we were told ... "you fell through the cracks". But we were given a room ... thank goodness. We were not told about the availability of coffee and tea, listed as one of the amenities at the Bungalows though which is disappointing for us, since we love our morning cup of coffee. The rooms are minimalist, clean and other than the low platform beds (tough getting out of if you have bad back or joints) the couch was comfy. Figuring out the TV channels was tricky. Bathroom had few amenities ... enough towels for our 2 night stay, 2 tiny bars of face soap and wall mounted "S" (shampoo/soap) and "C" (conditioner/cream). There was no maid service during our stay. All in all we had a fairly comfortable stay and we were close to all we wanted to do.
I have stayed at The Bungalows many, many times. When I have important clients in from the city, and even my family in town- we will only stay here. Place is spotless, perfect location, and very reasonably priced. Please don't ever change, and thank you for always loving all of my friends and family. I will be back next month, you make everything very user friendly and we all appreciate this very special place!
This place was just what we were looking for. Close proximity to the heart of Sag Harbor, and it's beautiful beaches. The rooms were styled very neatly, with a fresh modern vibe. The staff was accommodating and helpful with any questions we had about the area. They even had cute bikes to ride around town. All in all a great stay, you'll definitely be seeing us again!
Terrible place...nothing like the pictures depict. Beds are platform beds that are not for anyone who struggles get up and down. Management is rude and unsympathetic. Location is on the highway. Looks like a cheap hotel on the outside! Would never recommend this place to anyone!!
