An amazing location with very friendly people. It has a beautiful pond that the whole family can enjoy. The sauna is to die for. It has row boats, volley ball net and a fire bong place. My husband who is on a wheelchair had an awesome time as well. We will be visiting this place in the future.

About the neighborhood
We are on the beautiful Glasgo Pond. It is perfect for water-skiing and wake boarding, fishing, or just building sand castles. We a large Finnish wood-burning sauna with amazing hot showers, or just run off the end of the dock for a swim to cool off!

We are near to many New England attractions including Mystic, CT, the ferry to Block Island, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos, Misquamicut Beach, and many amazing State Parks for hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding.
