Sag Harbor Cove is where my private beach behind the property is located for water access to sun-bathing, sculling, canoeing or fishing if you rent or buy the equipment from one of the specialty shops in the Village.
There are four bicycles on the property for guests use on a first come first serve basis. They can be used to explore more of Sag Harbor and other surrounding areas not within walking distance.
Long Wharf beach, Long Beach and Haven’s Beach are 3 public beaches in relative close proximity to the house. Long Wharf beach is in the center of the Village of Sag Harbor within the 7 minutes walking distance from the house. However, the other two beaches are within a comfortable bicycling distance from the house rather than by car. One would need a car’s parking pass obtained from Sag Harbor’s municipal building to be able to take one’s car to the beach for beach parking. Only a limited number of car parking passes are available in the Village per season.
Guests can always text, email or call me with any questions, concerns or just for places to go and/or visit during or after their stay.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be obtained from the Cove Deli which is just across the street from the house/apartment.
