There's also guided hiking, mountain biking, and guided kayaking on the Tusket and Napier Rivers.
"the Tusket still flows and gurgles below the lodge and out-buildings, ready for kayakers, canoeists, and – in late summer – swimmers. It is home to beavers, trout, waterfowl and wild cranberry bushes. A wood-burning above-ground spa is a counterpoint to a crisp dip in the Tusket. An elevated walkway ends at a raised platform in a calming pool of the river with a 360-degree view of shoreline thickets and stands of white birch, ash, maple, hemlock and pine. By day, the solitude and silence there is encompassing; on a clear night, some of the darkest skies in North America reveal a sparkly dome of countless stars.
Pack swim suits, hiking boots, outdoor apparel, an appetite and perhaps a book to read on the spacious veranda where the only interruptions are darting chipmunks and an occasional hummingbird. Off-road bicycles, fly rods, waders, the kayaks and canoes and other equipment are already part of Trout Point’s inventory." John Lumpkin, Associated Press
After a hike or paddle, rejuvenate with a revitalizing massage session.
“For me, the place was so perfect, it was idyllic and it was an idyllic time. We met interesting people, and every night we had great conversations around the bonfire.
