We have our boat here for the summer - it is our summer retreat and cottage on the water. Is a perfect place to relax, eat, listen to live music, go for walks, or just sit and rock while sipping a glass of wine.

A great place to walk the dog, have a BBQ, canoe, kayak, paddle board or enjoy the beach. A couple of restaurants are nearby and are on the water.
