Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-1I recently travelled to the Hamptons to shoot for a super exciting Warner Brother’s campaign I am working on. More on that soon, but in the meantime I wanted to share the incredible hotel I stayed in while visiting Sag Harbor. I managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Sag Harbor earlier this year when I was in the Hamptons to shoot a house for my second Bright.Bazaar book, but this was my first time actually staying in this adorable coastal town. Click through after the jump to explore the ‘nautical nirvana’ of Baron’s Cove’s interiors and grounds…!

Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-2Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-3You may remember from my adventures in Key West that I LOVE to explore new-to-me towns and places by bike. So no surprise that I was thrilled to see the hotel offering complimentary bike hire for their guests. Arianna and I spent a glorious afternoon riding around Sag Harbor, stopping off to snap cute Instagram moments, soak in the sea air and even make our dinner reservation! How cute is the ‘meet me at Baron’s Cove’ sign on the back of each bike? Love!Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-4Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-5Baron’s Cove has recently undergone an extensive two-year renovation – and it shows! The hotel’s interior design was led by Colleen Bashaw, who designs all of the Cape Resort properties. Our room was beautifully appointed in a soothing blue and white palette, with a stunning, custom-designed for the hotel, striped rug and cool, crisp white linens, all of which was accented with nautical artworks and emblems.Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-6Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-7The communal areas, especially the restaurant and dining deck, are exquisitely designed. Maritime flags are framed and hung amongst true blue tufted banquet-style seating, with stunning light fixtures above. Light pours into the space from the wall of glass windows along one side of the room. It was an energising and uplifting place to eat breakfast each morning. Executive Chef Matthew Boudreau has quite the menu on offer; I recommend trying the smoked salmon and then the pancakes (duh!).Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-8Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-9The nod to nautical was subtle throughout the grounds of the hotel, but this friendly whale wall decor on the outdoor deck by the pool was a personal fave!Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-10Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-11I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: one day I’ll own a classic shingle house! This was the wellness centre which offered fitness and yoga classes daily, as well as having a 24-hour fitness centre.Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-12Barons-Cove-Hotel-Restaurant-Sag-Harbor-13After all that biking, eating, swimming, exploring and working out the only thing left to do was try a cocktail from the bar and enjoy it while taking in the incredible sunset over the harbor opposite the hotel.
