Best Hotels in Long Island (NY)
Luxury, history and gracious hospitality in the heart of an old whaling town.
Built as a local cabinet maker’s personal residence in 1846, this building became a hotel 30 years later. It is now listed with Historic Hotels of America. Its location is ideal, in the heart of Sag Harbor, a town with a rich whaling history. Guests enjoy easy access to deep sea and surf fishing, boutiques, art galleries and numerous American heritage sites. The hotel has eight rooms, all of which feature turn-of-the-century antiques, intimate sitting areas, en-suite private baths, Italian towels and bathrobes, fully stocked mini-bars, telephones, clock radios and down duvets. Though there are no televisions in-room, a large TV can be found in the lounge/dining area, which is also the location for continental breakfast each morning. The property's crown jewel, the American Hotel Restaurant, encompasses four separate dining rooms decorated with Empire and early Victorian antiques, and boasts 2,500 selections on its wine list and a menu of American-French cuisine.
