“Historical value”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Lots of history information found to be intriging. Didn't know much about the island before coming, but have a wealth of information leaving. Will definitely come again and bring others to share.

“Wonderful way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Bring your camera! Loved roaming the grounds and visiting the restored cottages. Quaint shops on the grounds as well. Easy to imagine what the island was like so long ago. Took the ghost tour in the evening and got a "bonus" history lesson from our wonderful guide. Even our teenaged daughter was captivated - and that says a lot! Don't miss the opportunity.

Loved seeing all the old building, homes and cottages. We both liked it, worth seeing. Take your camera, we got lots of great photos.

“A Step Back in Time”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This place is a hoot! I never expected to be transported back in time to 1884 and thereabouts. What a story of Northeast industrialists forming a hunting club here in the 1880s, changing to a tennis and golf club in more recent years before it was disbanded. Now the whole Island is a State park ($6 entry fee good for 24 hours with return allowed if you leave) but full of places to stay and eat and things to see. The buildings in the Historic District are wonderful, many of the small cottages are now gift shops. Some of them are still part of the original Club and you can stay in them or just enjoy the bars, porches and patios with folks dressed all in white (over 55, I believe) playing croquet on the manicured large lawn in front of the Island club resort main building. Great place for biking too being very flat. Tram tours available for seeing the Historic District with narration of the fascinating story accompanying the area.
