Before my memorable dinner at The Restaurant at Baron’s Cove a little over a week ago, I was treated with a personal tour of the hotel’s newly renovated property by Baron’s Cove Assistant General Manager, Dot Capuano, whom I have known for many years. Though the property is recognizable as to the layout of what it was prior to the refurbishments, the new decor, and the amenities now offered are harmonious with the seaside Sag Harbor Village and Hamptons lifestyle.
Whether you prefer to enjoy your lunch or a cocktail poolside, take part in a peaceful yoga class on the front lawn, or go to the nearby Long Beach in their complimentary shuttle service, you will be treated like a star at this resort. The new resort property is by Cape Resorts, with their home base in Cape May, New Jersey. There they have five hotel properties, with Congress Hall as their flagship hotel.
Each room at Baron’s Cove is charmingly decorated, evoking a coastal, All-American vibe. The talented individual behind Baron’s Cove interior design is Colleen Bashaw. Bashaw is owner Curtis Bashaw’s sister. For me, the decor takes me back in time a few decades to when Sag Harbor was not nearly the bustling village it is today. Each room seems so comfortable for guests. I love the whaling-inspired paintings and geographical prints on the walls in each room, and the white linens. Have a look at the mini water bottles by Baron’s Cove in the photo above. That is just adorable and so perfect for carrying in your tote to the beach. I love little details like that.
Each room is full of natural light. If you prefer to be steps away from the pool area, there are the chic Harbor Suites that are expansive and cheerful. That is my kind of room, one where you could flip off your sandals and hop right on the bed for an afternoon’s rest. Just above, the Harbor Loft Suites have their own private deck for relaxing with either a glass of refreshing iced tea or white wine.
Don’t want to leave man’s best friend behind? Good news! Baron’s Cove has Village Dog-Friendly Rooms that allow for maximum accessibility for the whole family. These rooms are located on the first floor with plush queen or king-size beds. A full description of all their rooms is available here.
Starting on June 19th, there fitness center will be open 24/7 for complimentary use for guests. Available, starting the 20th, there will be a series of wellness classes offered for guests including Boot Camp, Yoga, and Hula Hooping, all available on the front lawn. Classes will be held on the weekends in June and everyday July 1st thru Labor Day. How about a game of tennis. There is a newly revamped tennis court on the property with private lessons available if you so choose. Complimentary bikes will be available if you choose to go out for a ride through the village or perhaps through the nearby hamlet of North Haven just over the bridge.
Spa services are also at Baron’s Cove. You may care to enjoy a hot stone or deep tissue massage. The massages are available either in the treatment rooms or in the privacy of your own room. As of June 15th, the massages are in-room only until the spa room is finished being set up.
Downstairs in the intimate lobby, the gift shop is especially lovely and sells really cute children’s outfits, coffee mugs, glasses, tote bags, and more. Coming into the lounge and front desk area, you will be greeted by not only the very friendly staff members, but also a sophisticated, old-world style décor with a slightly rustic, masculine bar area. Just exiting the bar area, you will notice a patio with a cozy fireplace and plenty of seating open space for lounging about.
