The resort has a beautiful marina where you can bring your boat or rent one, rent kayaks and bikes, go fishing or simply enjoy sitting on one of the many riverfront benches and let the sights and sounds lull you into a state of relaxation. Unwind at the wonderful, casual riverfront restaurant on site that serves delicious award winning crab cakes and New England clam chowder. They have special kids' meals that are topped off with a warm chocolate chip cookie that will delight the little ones. There is even a Village Grocer that sells sandwiches, baked goods, convenience items and bait; a resort clothing store and hair and nail salon at the marina for your convenience.
