Welcome to the Mystic Seahorse! Autumn is here and what better way to spend a few days than on beautiful Gwynn's Island! Walk to the beach, ride a bike, or kayak around the Island, then enjoy a quiet evening around the fire roasting marshmallows. We now have three bicycles for guests' use! This is a great place for writers or artists who need a quiet place to work or anyone that needs some time to read that new book.
Need a last minute get-away? Ask for an "Autumn special offer."
