  • Spend the day, gather sea glass and tour the grounds; a great place to be on a hot summer day! Just pack a lunch and maybe a bottle of wine!  more »
  • Stayed overnight on Rose Island several years ago. It was an amazing and unique experience. You can also get there by private boat and/or ferry (durring season). Lovely island to explore.  more »
