It's a WonderFALL Autumn at Baron's Cove Sag Harbor

The pretty porchscape at Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor

It’s a WonderFall (and delicious) autumn at Baron’s Cove. Here’s what’s coming up at Sag Harbor’s harbor-side retreat this fall. Sweater weather is for wining, dining, and cozy fireside gatherings at one of my favorite Hamptons hotspots.
