Resort News
We want to remind you that today our EScape Cruise leaves at 10:30am today, rather than the usual afternoon outing. Swing by the Concierge to sign up!

Head over to the Treehouse Wellness Center to sign up for our Mini Triathlon this afternoon! This is a great family event that we host weekly. You’ll start out at the Waterfront with a swim, then throw on your running shoes for a quick loop, and finally hop on your bike for one more loop and the finish! Speaking of the Waterfront…don’t forget that you can rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and motorboats from our fantastic Waterfront staff. Or just dive on in and bounce around on the trampoline!

Our naturalist Matt Witten will be your trusty captain for Rowing this morning! Take advantage of this opportunity to row on the Pilot Gig: a 32-foot, extremely seaworthy and stable craft that replicates the 6-person pulling boats used off the coast of Cornwall, England in the 1800s. Sign up for your space at the Concierge desk! This afternoon he will be leading a hike to Buck Mountian. Enjoy magnificent views from the top! Sign up with the Concierge, we only have room for 5 in the van, beyond that it becomes a self-driving adventure!

Want to learn a new technique or just brush up on your skills? Check out our Tennis Clinics today! We have the Adults working it out this morning, with Tiny Tots and Juniors after lunch! Check in with the Tennis Pro shop to sign up for a class, arrange a private lesson, or reserve time to use a court.

Our Golf pros are available and ready to help you perfect your Golf game! We have a Clinic scheduled for this afternoon to work on Putting, however the focus of the clinic is open to change to accommodate the desires of the group. Pop into the Golf Shop to sign up or reserve your tee time!

Don’t forget to sign up for Joanne’s DIY presentation and craft tomorrow afternoon! This promises to be a super fun activity! See the Concierge for more details.

With the possibility of questionable weather today, there is still plenty to do! Indulge in some pampering at the Blue Chair Spa with a massage! Or pop into one of the Shops on property for a little (or big) splurge. There is a lot to do in the area too, stop by the Concierge to get directions and suggestions!
