Things To Do
Plenty to do from leisurely bike rides (bikes provided by the Inn) to tennis on two hard surface tennis courts across the street to golf on a par 3 golf course just down the street or on 3 championship golf courses just two minutes away. The newest course, The King Carter, was named by Golf Digest “Number One Public Course in America with a Greens Fee Under $75”. There is a pool in the Vineyard Grove, beaches as close as 10 minutes away and places to launch your own or rented kayaks. The town and surrounding areas have quaint boutiques and cafes, a vineyard, a steamboat museum and a National Historic Church built in 1735.
Entrance to the Inn’s award winning winery, Dog and the Oyster Vineyard, are two 40ft. corkscrews. Few know that the area is very much like Bordeaux: sandy soil with rocks, a nearby estuary (Chesapeake Bay) and a water table which requires an underground tilling system for drainage are just a few of the similarities.
Plan to go when you can enjoy a cruise on the 26 foot True Love, a Downeast style boat. Wine and cheese available for the cruise.
