Our Harbor Master would like to mention a couple of extraordinary young men…Will & Case Bradbury are a pair of outstanding tubers! Both boys withstood the best efforts of boat driver, Marty, to displace them from the tube and managed to hang on through the dreaded “vortex”!

Resort News
Today will be a great day to explore down by the Waterfront! Play on our Sandy Beach or swim out to the trampoline. There are kayaks & canoes, paddleboards & more! Let our Waterfront crew set you up to have an amazing day in the sun…just don’t forget the sunscreen!

Another way to enjoy the sun today will be during our Special Garden Tour! Join Chantal, of our gardening staff, as she tours you in our 15,000 sq. feet of gardens. Each year Linden Landscaping designs these beautiful gardens and we help plant them. Then our gardeners care for them. This year’s designs reflect the great Mountain Ranges of the World!

Our Naturalist Matt Witten is teaming up with the Maritime Museum to bring you an old-time past time! He will be hosting two rowing sessions this morning on the Pilot Gig. This is extremely seaworthy and stable craft that replicates the 6-person pulling boats used off the coast of Cornwall, England in the 1800s. Limited space is available, so get your crew together, or come alone to make new friends, and sign up at the Concierge desk!

Hike for your hops! Walk for your wine! Vermont is on the map for its lush network of trails, its small-batch craft beer, and more recently its award-winning cold-climate wine. On this adventure, you’ll get to sample all three! Join Matt for two short hikes near Middlebury, punctuated by visits to Drop-In Brewing and Lincoln Peak Vineyard. There will be a complimentary tasting at Drop-in, although a tasting at Lincoln Peak will cost you $5 it does include glass to take home! Don’t forget to bring extra cash if you choose to purchase bottles. Sign up with the Concierge…there are limited spaces available and they go quick!

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!

Tonight is the Shore Dinner! This is an amazing buffet that happens down at the North Dock. Our amazing Chef has created an incredible array of tasty sea-inspired fare. Swing by the Concierge desk to take a peek at the menu and make your reservation! After dinner come by the Town Hall for some Basin Harbor Bingo!
