Sylvan Cove - Decatur Island

Sylvan Cove has no motorized vehicles, no stop signs or busy streets, not even a store. It does have kayaks on the beach, a community flower garden, a flock of sheep so tame they graze right outside your window, 680 preserved acres of unrivaled natural beauty, and a jewel of a cottage waiting just for you.

Take a paddle in the cove. Finish reading a long novel. Check the crab pot. Nap. Hike to the lake and dive right in. Pick a handful of cherries in the orchard. Throw some kindling on the fire. Watch the shadows fall at twilight.

Step into the story.

"Tis a gift to be simple,
tis a gift to be free,
tis a gift to come 'round,
where we ought to be
           ~traditional Shaker tune
