To honour Steinbeck, who was a Sag Harbor local and Baron’s Cove Hotel regular, the hotel has put together a celebratory package, which gives a special rate to whoever shows their library card.

The Celebrating Steinbeck offer includes deluxe accommodation, continental breakfast and two Jack Rose cocktails (the author’s favourite) for a special rate of $115 (AU$150) instead of$189 (AU$247).
And if you’re staying on Sunday February 26 you get the night of February 27 for free – the author’s actual birthday.
Other Steinbeck related treats include his favourite dish – pork posole – being served in the dining room throughout February and in theme with the author’s popular book, Travels with Charley: In Search of America based on his road trip with his pup, guests are encouraged to bring their dogs along.
Sounds pretty fab, doesn’t it?
