Fall and Winter are great times to visit Herron Island: This is a peaceful time on the Island, after the summer holiday crowds have left. You can witness the deer rutting rituals from your deck, enjoy the solitude, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The color change of the trees and bushes can be seen as you stroll down the country roads and also can be viewed on the surrounding islands and mainland. Ideal for that perfect get away or writer's retreat. Great for the Holidays!

Spring and Summer are perfect for outdoor activities, boating, beach combing and long strolls; beautiful sunsets from the front deck.
