Things to Do

The possibilities are almost what you like - even if that means nothing at all. The cottage offers fun for everyone...nature lovers, romantics, outdoor sports enthusiasts, and more. The fun you will enjoy at the cottage will probably even surprise yourself. Here are just a few suggestions:

Feel your heart skip a beat watching a beautiful sunrise or sunsets
Fish off the pier - it's easy, just a hop-skip-and jump outside the front door
Become enchanted by the many wildife species
Fill your soul with fresh air by hiking our nature trails
Is photography your game - then you better bring plenty of film
Bring your boat, kayak, or calm waters await you
Swim...swim...oh, and swim
Catch, cook and enjoy the abundant crabs (during season)
Bring back childhood memories picking and eating raspberries (seasonal)
Get in touch with your spirit...relax in the hammock - you've earned it
Paint a picture...on canvas or just in your dreams
Start a journal, a poem, a story, a book... or send a card to a loved one
Don't forget, you can always "do nothing"
Try a new recipe, our kitchen is fully equipped
Got guests? Play games (bring your favorite or enjoy one of ours)
Enjoy a peaceful walk along the mile of waterfront beach
Walk the beach trail and experience the "Big Frog Pond"
See how many trees, wildflowers and mushrooms you can identify
Watch an old VHS movie (bring your favorite or enjoy one of ours)
Have a romantic adventure and hold hands.
Bring your birdseed and fill up the bird's guaranteed entertainment
Soak up the sun's rays (don't forget your sunscreen).
Make an exotic drink in the blender and enjoy
