Barons Cove Restoration Has an Eye on History

Posted on 07 October 2014

At first glance, it may be hard to believe that Baron’s Cove Inn on West Water Street had a storied past as a local meeting spot and watering hole. But in fact, the inn’s restaurant was a popular spot for families and in the 1950s and 1960s, author John Steinbeck and his buddies met there regularly to swap stories and hatch plans for the Old Whaler’s Festival, a precursor to HarborFest.
The restaurant is long gone, sold off years ago and razed to make way for condominiums after a controversial stint as a noisy nightclub. While Baron’s Cove Inn itself continued, over time, the motel units became faded and dated.
But Curtis Bashaw is intrigued by the history of Baron’s Cove and he’s embracing the property’s past to chart the inn’s course for the future.
