18 hole golf course - 2 km from the cottages. This course also has a putting green and driving range. It also has an informal eating area and pro shop.
Covehead Wharf - this is 2 km from our cottages. It is a busy spot where the #1 industry is lobster fishing . The season starts in early May and goes to the end of June. Here you can book a deep sea fishing excursion - generally speaking - there are 3 every day - weather dependant.
A fresh seafood business is located on the wharf where you can always get fresh lobster and other seafood. You really do need to try the mussels ...
Heather Hannon Island Art Studio is directly across the lane from us. Heather paints beautiful original watercolors that you can't miss seeing. I have included an original watercolor photo of our Spruce cottage which she painted last year and another one of a lighthouse.
