Sag Harbor, NY

We usually welcome family and friends over for a barbecue at our home during Memorial Day weekend.  For this past holiday, Dr. Man decided to do something different.  He suggested that we head over to the Hamptons, Sag Harbor, to be exact.  I was up to the task in finding a rental in such short notice.  After some searching, I found this newly constructed, beautifully designed home with not only a private pool, but a short walk to a private beach.  After looking at reviews of others' experiences, I had to send in my request quickly.  Soon afterward, we were granted approval and we were immediately looking forward to our stay!

Despite traffic, we had an enjoyable ride to the area.  Prior to my arrival, I did not know that Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest, and Ninevah subdivisions were settled by working class African-Americans.  These areas were inhabited by those looking for not only a beach getaway, but looking for a place to be accepted in a time of segregation.

When we pulled up to the home, we were greeted by the wonderful owners!  Not only did they give us a tour of their home, they had a welcome bottle of champagne (which we quickly opened before we jumped into the pool).

While Dr. Man got our luggage, I couldn't resist taking photos of my favorite area of the home....the first floor.  Since we are in the process of constructing our own home, I admired the openness and flow of the first floor.  I loved the huge windows which allowed beautiful light into the great room, dining area, and kitchen.

Now, let's talk about their backyard!  When we immediately went outside, we knew instantly where we would spend most of our time.  We quickly changed into our bathing suits/trunks and headed straight into the pool!

The following day we headed into town for a delicious breakfast, but we were looking forward to spending some time at the beach.  Despite the cold temperature of the water, we still enjoyed making sand castles with Sage!

Even though we had a short stay, we enjoyed some local favorites such as Grindstone Coffee and Donuts. →

Rich with ethnic and cultural diversity, inviting beaches, and blessed with a small town feel, Sag Harbor was a welcome getaway.  Looking forward to visiting this area again...hopefully soon!  I just love this view while eating!
