Everything the heart desires...

Due to the Gulf Stream that flows by our Bay we have the “warmest waters north of North Carolina”. Water temperatures of 70F-75F are common from mid-summer to mid-fall. Because it’s quite shallow the bay in front of the property can be even warmer. So, indulge in a twilight dip or paddle off into the sunset using the canoe, kayak or the 14' rowboat that are available for guest use. Life jackets are also provided.

 

 

   
 
For those who like sailing I am pleased to offer the use of Le Couchon, a 19' day sailor, which can hold four comfortably. I am always looking for an excuse to go sailing so I’d be happy to take you out myself, if you lack experience or just want company. It’s not uncommon to see a harbour seal or an eagle on such excursions, so keep your cameras and binoculars handy.

On site it’s also possible to dig for clams and to harvest mussels and oysters galore. A waterside bonfire area is provided complete with pot for those impromptu lobster boils. Walk along the shore and experience our amazing sunsets across the water. Start a bonfire by the water and let the evening hours slip by. Watch the amazing constellations and occasional shooting stars - all visible since there is little ambient night light around.
