Breakfast & Beyond

We provide maps, guide books and privileged information based on our own personal experience and explorations of the Island. Have breakfast in the dining room, on the porch or on the lawn, and participate — if you wish — in a lively, interesting conversation including helpful suggestions from our many repeat guests.

From every point of view ... a singular and memorable experience.

Tea Time and More...

Wickedly good lemon daisy bundt cake at Shore Path CottageFollowing a day of adventure on land or sea, relax and enjoy “Tea Time” with wine and/or, lemonade, iced tea and our wickedly good lemon daisy bundt cake, featured in an article about the Shore Path Cottage. After dining in one of the area's many fine restaurants, you may choose to end the day at a movie, a concert, a walk in town, or by curling up in a cozy chair in the living room where someone may be playing the grand piano. A short walk from town, though worlds away, our guests enjoy walking at night across our lawn to the sea beneath a dark and starry sky. (Photo courtesy R. Souviney, November, 2008)
