Please check out the excellent packages with the Inn and theater. This is an area that is breathtaking and worth a weekend - or a few days - of rest, relaxation and a live performance. Well worth every minute.

I am a regular who receives seasonal tickets. I love the playhouse located peacefully on the waterfront. The washrooms decorated with stunning 18 century props, friendly staff & amazing shows.
