We had 16 kids under 12 and a couple teen-agers. Stayed 3 nights at the Pickering House with extra people sleeping on the boat and in tents in the back yard. House was roomy, even when full of kids playing games and making a mess. It was clean when we arrived! Kitchen and bathroom were well stocked and the staff was responsive. Resort is laid back and made us feel welcome, giving the kids lots of leeway without too many rules. We all enjoyed the pool, the hot tub and the beach access. We kayaked, bicycled, took our boat in and out of the marina for crabbing and short cruises, explored the village, spent a fun afternoon at Spencer spit, had games and races in the front yard and had a lovely time. Restaurant took good care of us for our 1 big meal out. Wished the showers weren't quite so expensive and we had to pay the whole $2 amount even for a minute or two extra. Should have a place to shower before getting into the pool, because no one is going to pay $2 to shower before getting in! Sunset views were stunning. We'll be back, I'm sure.
