Resort News
There is plenty to do on this rainy day! We have a Yoga class this morning in the Treehouse Wellness Center to help you ease into the day. We do have our Golf and Tennis Clinics throughout the day, as long as the weather doesn’t get too bad and you don’t mind getting a little damp.

The Sip N’ Stroll outing this afternoon is a great way to beat the rain! Yes, it may involve a little walking in the weather, but trust us…the local wine and beer samplings are worth it! Make sure you sign up with the Concierge, space in the van is limited to 5 people, anyone else wishing to participate will have to drive themselves (with a DD of course).

Come on inside and check out the shops on property! In the Main Lodge we have the Breezeway Gift Shop. This is a great place to pick up a keepsake to bring home, or some amazing Lake Champlain Chocolates! The Golf Shop has everything you need to hit the course, including the perfect outfit. The Harbor Store is the place to satisfy that ice cream craving or pick up a little something to play with!

Are you just looking for some downtime with family and friends? We can help with that! See the Front Desk to borrow movies and board games! Gather up your besties and head to the Champlain Lounge to hang out and play cards. There are computers in the Library off the Lounge that are available for guest use. Or head to the Fairway Café for a snack, a drink, and a big screen TV!

Still not sure what to do when the rain is coming down? Check in with the Concierge for ideas and directions to local sights, towns, and adventures!
