“Magnificent views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Fantastic place to go and bring a picnic basket. Calm and great place to take pictures. If you like unspoiled nature this is the place to visit.

“Smoked Goods to satisfy your palate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Stopped by and sampled some "Salmon Candy Strips", Hardwood smoked salmon, sweetened with honey and seasoned with salt and spices, WOW! It was great.
Also purchased some other smoked fish, cheese and condiments. A must for anyone on a quest for gourmet treats.

“Summer "Cottages" a Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you're in the area, drive around Grindstone Neck to view the summer cottages. Stop at the point, get out and walk the rocky coastline with fantastic water views.

“Old money homes and great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

After stopping in downtown Winter Harbor, head out Grindstone Road to drive out onto the Neck (or Beach Road, too). If you go straight out Grindstone Road you deadend at a lovely view with great flat rocks so bring a lunch. Other roads provide similar spots. Grindstone Golf Course is an old course with some fabulous views especially holes 2, 3, and 4. But it's a tight course so bring extra balls. Don't expect lush fairways, just enjoy the adventure!

“The smoked mussels and salmon were FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We are so glad we stopped here! We bought some yummy items which we ate as a picnic on our way north. The owner (who also owns Fisherman's Inn Restaurant in Winter Harbor) was as nice as she could be. We appreciated her showing us the back room where they smoke the fish. They ship all over the world!
