A pool, a fishing dock -- the perfect kid vacation
Kids can never say "There's nothing to do' when staying at Sebasco Harbor Resort. Youngsters love our harbor-side salt water swimming pool. You can fish right off the dock, or have one of our local guides take you out on the water. Or take a scenic harbor cruise aboard our tour boat Ruth. Twice a week we have craft activities, such as tee shirt tie-dying. Our chefs offer cooking lessons, too. Naturalists from the Chewoni Foundation, an animal rehab facility, stop by the resort twice a week with birds and other fun creatures. We have tennis clinics for every age. Croquet on our gazebo lawn is fun, too. Paddle boats and kayaks are available. In addition to our nine-hole golf course, we also have a three-hole course for beginners, where dad can give the kids a lesson.
