Our conversations keep resonating with vibrant experiences.

Long paddles around many islands. Hiking and blueberrying on Red Hill. The delights of hydrobikes. The morning fire for a rising family, and the evening fire for games and dreams. Ping pong tables. Bouncing down the Ramsey Trail.

The unending choice of delectable edibles. Perfect, much-used swimming water. Toddler room and climbing spot. Conversations with iceman, boatman, woodman, housekeeper, recwoman/man. Sails in light breezes. The nature walk. Bill Sharkey's delight and conversations over our canoe and sailing dinghy. Engrossing rainy-day puzzles. Trees and time for our hammock and badminton. Friendly like-minded guests abound. And indeed, we found Pine Ledge approached perfection... we couldn't have located it or built it better.
