Enjoy treetop birding at Rabbit Hill, an Emily Muir designed cottage with

Kitchen Clam Chowder made with Crockett Cove hen clams, handcrafted
Barbour Farm organic cider, and hot popovers served with Strawberry Rhubarb,
Spiced Peach Butter or Wild Blueberry jams.
Bring the whole family for lunch, then to hike to shore, or explore the adjacent

focus on the osprey fishing in the cove. Listen for warblers and the drum roll of
the pileated woodpecker.
