A secluded, peaceful retreat.

The fruit blossoms are wonderful to see and smell in the Spring. Summer is a time for swimming, relaxing on the beach, hiking, volleyball, or badminton and to enjoy fresh organic produce from our gardens. Come sit on the veranda and watch the full moon on the Northumberland Strait.

Fall encourages visitors to take in the local oyster festivals or view the beautiful foliage as it turns to gold, amber and red outside our back door.
