Everything from the Front Desk Staff, the rooms, the food, and the Golf Course was PERFECT!! We traveled from Nova Scotia and will definitely return!! The Historic features of the Resort were amazing! I see this as a place where a Family can spend a couple of days or a week!

we stayed here for the first time back in 2003. They've added an outdoor pool since then. My 6 year old's favorite part was the video game room that had xBox, Playstation and Wii game consoles. Rooms are a bit dated but the grounds look great, as they did in 2003. Plenty of activities for the family of multiple ages....

Incredibly accommodating staff and management. We enjoyed the view of the Rockland Breakwater while hanging out in the outdoor pool. Great outdoor dining as well. Dining staff were especially cordial and fun. The next time we will stay a week.

great service, friendly staff, cleanliness, ocean front view, golf access, out door pool, in door pool. All amenities were fabulous. would highly recommend this to anyone. Two negatives: restaurant perhaps a bit pricey, especially for families long walk to indoor pool, not a gpod set up, but the pool area itself is fantastic

I don't think there is a bad view from the resort. The golf course is excellent as are all the landscapes. The buildings and amenities are magnificent! To turn a great resort into an excellent one takes excellent people. All the crew have smiles on their faces and greet the guests each and every time they see one. The restaurants...
