The American Hotel was built in 1846 at the height of the Whaling era. The Hotel is an elegant and professionally run establishment with an inimitable edge and character. There are eight guest rooms, mainly appointed with American antiques, a benchmark Long Island restaurant with an award-winning wine list, long known as the place for the best cigars, (even if smoking is no longer allowed indoors,) the liveliest clientele and hub of cultural and political denizens.

Enjoy the magnificent beaches of the Hamptons, savor the many historical sights and cultural activities, golf, play tennis, cycle, ride, or go deep sea fishing. The Motor Yacht America, our 75’ foot John Trumpy classic cruising houseboat is docked here and ready for your charter.

Our staff, the most knowledgeable in the area, will do its best to help with making your arrangements.

The Hotel is in the heart of Sag Harbor within walking distance of all shops, restaurants, art galleries, a gymnasium, the harbor front and bay beach.

We look forward to your visit!
