Travelers with a passion for literature will be interested in a special promotion from Baron’s Cove, celebrating John Steinbeck’s birthday later in February.

Steinbeck, one of America’s great novelists and author of The Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men, was born 115 years ago on February 27th, and Baron’s Cove is celebrating this milestone in grand style. Located in Sag Harbor, Long Island, Baron’s Cove is a waterfront resort with a proud literary history; along with Steinbeck, authors like Kurt Vonnegut, Truman Capote, and George Plimpton stayed there during their careers.

This special Steinbeck celebration includes a room rate of only $115 per night, plus two free Jack Rose cocktails (Steinbeck’s favorite, made from applejack, grenadine, and lemon) to anyone who presents a library card during the month of February. Not only that, you won’t be charged for the date of his actual birthday if your stay overlaps with it.
