Located on the Peconic Bay side of Long Island’s South Fork, Sag Harbor is a postcard-ready small town that has attracted writers, artists and notables for decades. We spent a beautiful few days there, and on neighboring Shelter Island, shooting our Zenergy story with yoga instructor Colleen Saidman Yee, who lives in Sag Harbor when she’s not traveling the world. Here are her recommendations and ours on how to spend the perfect weekend.
What To Do
“Downtown” Sag Harbor: located nearly on the water, Sag Harbor’s main drag, the intersections of Main Street and Bay Street, is the ideal place to while away a few hours strolling and browsing, with its eclectic array of small local shops, cafés, and a charming old movie theater to boot. With picturesque views of Peconic Bay, Havens Beach is Colleen’s favorite spot to get away from it all, breathe, and relax. Her yoga studio Yoga Shanti, is famous for its warm, welcoming style, making it ideal for beginners and just as sought after for advanced students.
Where To Eat
Provisions Market in Sag Harbor is Colleen’s choice for a healthy smoothie and a delicious breakfast. For a more indulgent treat, the croissants and other baked goods at Marie Eiffel Market in Shelter Island are not to be missed!
Where To Stay
A quick ferry ride from Sag Harbor, The Chequit on Shelter Island is a lovely place to spend a relaxing afternoon, reading on the porch, sipping wine. The rooms are stylishly comfortable; it feels like a hotel from a different, more gracious time, but with all the modern touches we’ve come to love and expect. Added bonus: Red Maple, The Chequit’s restaurant, serves delicious, seasonally inspired food, for the perfect cozy night in.
What To Wear
This cold shoulder top from our updated Zenergy line is just like Sag Harbor: chic, easy, and classic. Wear it now, this fall, and forever. We’ve paired it with our Grace Zip Pocket crops, the perfect transitional pant from summer to fall.
