Shore Side of Property

The “Kitchen" building has 3 newly constructed fully-equipped, self-help member preparation kitchens as well as an indoor dining hall, a covered dining porch and an outdoor grill area.

The “Big House” surrounds a massive stone fireplace and is the center of social activity. In 2009 a new deck was constructed to link the Big House and Kitchen, providing more outdoor dining and social space.
