Why Marla W. Schwenk chose Sag Harbor
This property was handed down through my family to me. Although I have lived in various villages in the Hamptons, Sag Harbor is my favorite because I can walk everywhere and don't need to drive to go the stores, restaurants, movies, the Marina, the park or the Hampton Jitney.
What makes this Cottage unique
This historic house in the village offers a tranquil location minutes from everything. I have carefully renovated the house to keep the historic feeling. Sag Harbor is the most unique of the Hamptons villages.

We stayed here this past weekend and all I can say is that it was beautiful. It was absolutely charming as was the host.
Lovely, Modern, Light-filled Guest Suite
Beautiful, modern furnishings, artful touches, with attention to every detail. Comfortable, private. Short walk to shops, restaurants, delightful harbor. Marla is a very thoughtful host, providing maps, directions, extra linens, etc. Everything was perfect for our needs.

Well located, clean, cozy suite
We had a lovely time in Marla's home. The place was clean and well maintained. The suite has a separate entrance but is part of Marla's home - there is a bedroom, a bathroom, and a sitting room (no kitchen or other dining or living space), as advertised. Marla was very welcoming and easy to communicate with by text message. The location could not be better - it was 2 blocks to Main street in town where there were cafes, shops and restaurants. Marla made sure the place had everything including beach chairs and towels. The only part of check-in that was suboptimal was that Marla insisted on being there to check us in and show us the space; we were coming in late at night and therefore we felt like we had to rush to get there. We would have preferred having a key in a lockbox or electronic keypad to enter so we didn't have to rush and inconvenience the owner. The layout was also somewhat awkward as the bathroom was between the bedroom and the sitting area, so if someone was in the bathroom you couldn't move between the two other spaces. However, if you are looking for a clean and well maintained place to stay as close as possible to Sag Harbor, this is a great spot for you.
Thank you for the compliments on the accomodations and the location . As far as the lockbox is concerned, I feel a strong responsibility to meet guests, no matter the hour of arrival, show the accomodations and answer any questions. It is important for everyone to have a personal meeting as this is a private home.
Thank you again for staying.
We enjoyed our stay. Marla’s home is lovely and the location is ideal, walking distance to downtown Sag Harbor. The rooms were very clean, tidy and the bed and linens were comfortable. Check in was easy, Marla met us when we arrived and had suggestions for our stay. Thank you for a great weekend away.
Sag Harbor was originally the second largest whaling port in the US.
There are many historic attractions a few minutes walk from 84 Jefferson Street. The iconic Sag Harbor Whaling Church is around the block on Union Street. The newly renovated John Jermain Library is 1 block away at the corner of Jefferson & Main St. The Sag Harbor Whaling Museum is across Main Street from the library and the Customs House and Sag Harbor Historic Society are a few steps further toward the Village. Also in the village is the American Hotel Restaurant, Bay Street Theater (year-round live theater and entertainment), and many fine restaurants and shops.
There are 3 wineries on the East End--Wolffer Winery in Sagaponack, Channing Daughters in Bridgehampton, both a 10 minute drive. In Southampton is the Duck Walk, about a 20 minute drive.
Bridgehampton is the site of the world class Hampton Classic Horse Show, a high stakes jumping competition from Sunday, August 26 - Sunday, September 3, 2018. It is the premier social event of the Hamptons summer season.
In addition the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival "All Docs--All Day" (HT2FF.com) will be on Thursday, November 29 - Monday, December 3, 2018 -- well worth a holiday weekend in Sag Harbor.
And no visit to Sag Harbor is complete without a visit to the Sag Harbor Variety Store--an old fashioned five & dime. on Main Street. If you need it, they've got it!
Also in Bridgehampton, Bridge Gardens Trust--a beautiful, local garden operated by the Peconic Land Trust. Even if you are not a gardener, it is worth a visit to view the 15 acres of historic and local plantings.
The Sag Harbor wharf and public dock are at the end of Main Street. The beaches are world famous for clear water and white sand--Sag Harbor is on Peconic Bay and the Atlantic Ocean is 15 minutes to the south with public beaches for visitors to the area.
The John Drew Theater & Guild Hall is a 15 minute drive to East Hampton--a nationally recognized theater founded by the Drew-Barrymore family. The Hamptons International Film Festival will be held in East Hampton October 4-8, 2018
I have all the information about these and other local attractions waiting for you at the house.
