Your backyard is paradise on The Winchuck River. Literally, you can watch the river go up and down with the tide. That's how close to the mouth of the Ocean you are.
It's a great family gathering, huge open kitchen, fish, row up the river or down to the beach, kayak rentals a few miles away, walk to beach, Redwood trails a few miles away, beautiful weather, Crabbing, deep sea or river fishing. There is an easy bike pass nearby to peddle into town, or drive just minutes to the harbor.
