“Wonderful store!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I've been going to the Granite Hall Shop for 30+ years and have bought many pounds of candy there, countless Christmas presents, not to mention excellent ice cream cones. What I love about Granite Hall is their excellent selection of merchandise from 'penny' candy to clothing, kitchen ware, toys and more. There's nothing kitschy or tourist-trapy about this place - just good value for money and quality items. You can get personal care products, really lovely greeting cards, all manner of kitchen gadgets and, upstairs, everything from books to door mats to table ware and Irish woolens.
What makes Granite Hall so special, though, is the people who own and work there. They are always friendly, patient and willing to help you find just the right item. If they're out of something (like a sherpa covered crinkle mouse cat toy, for example) they'll tell you when it'll be in or order it for you. That kind of service doesn't exist in most places these days.
And the ice cream - extensive taste testing on my part has determined that the Gifford's ice cream they offer is the BEST!

“Great country store; boaters beware”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Love the Round Pond country store. One of the great expereinces for kids and adults with the penny candy, delightful staff, and easy walk from the Marina. Worth the visit each and every year.

One note of caution. Do not count on getting your boat fueled at Round Pond. The owner of the dock and dockside retaurant regularly refuses service the "summer jerks."

So get a good tank of gas and head on up to the store. It's worth the five minute walk.
