Family reunion vacations make connections that last lifetimes
Family reunions should be fun. They offer a unique chance to bond with loved ones, both young and old and create memories that will be passed on to future generations. In today’s busy world it has become way too easy to fall out of touch with family members. We fool ourselves into believing that Facebook, phone calls, texting and email can fill in the void and substitute for real physical interaction. In reality, the need for maintaining a physical connection to your past and your family has never been more important. Reunions are a chance to teach your children the importance of knowing, understanding and truly appreciating where they come from. What better way to accomplish this than to allow and encourage them to build strong, lifelong relationships with their kin? Few things in life are as entertaining to children as hearing stories about the shenanigans of their parents and the trouble that they got into when they were children themselves. Family gatherings are one the most natural ways to share these fond memories and laughter. Because when it comes to both communication and love, there is no substitute for the real thing.
Explore, play, relax and reconnect with loved ones
One of the best way for the family to connect is through doing unique and enjoyable things together. Sebasco Harbor Resort provides a wealth of family fun activities. This is one reason why our resort was recognized by both Parents magazine and Coastal Living as being one of the top beach resorts in the country for families. Resort activities include golf, canoeing, swimming, bird-watching, tennis, biking, bocce ball, hiking, kayaking, shuffleboard, croquet, scenic cruises on Casco Bay, lobsterbakes and so much more! And if you need a little downtime, a trip to The Fairwinds Spa will leave you feeling fully rejuvenated. Imagine listening to the soothing sounds of the Atlantic Ocean as you are being pampered with a relaxing body treatment that gently exfoliates your tired skin with aromatic crushed lavender buds and then nourishes it with a blend of sweet soy and lavender oil; both your body and your spirit will feel wholly replenished.
Big adventures for the littlest members of the family
If there are small children in your extended family, our Camp Merritt program gives them a wonderful opportunity to bond with one another and make new friends. Our day camp program offers exciting afternoon adventures that are sure to keep the little ones thoroughly entertained and engaged. And while Camp Merritt is tailored for children ages 5-10, we have several activities that all members of the family can take part in and enjoy. Scavenger hunts, pirate adventures, and Maine lobstering and fishing cruises are just a few of the excursions that kids, parents and grandparents can do together and cherish for years to come.
Gather the family around the table for great meals and great times!
At the end of the day when everyone has worked up big appetites, you have the choice of dining at either of our two great restaurants; the Pilot House and The Ledges. The Pilot House, open daily for breakfast and dinner, offers a seasonally-changing menu of creative cuisine made from the freshest locally-grown ingredients. Our dedication to supporting sustainable agriculture is one reason why we buy from regional organic farmers, lobstermen, fishermen, cheesemakers, dairy farmers and cattle ranchers. Buying locally not only makes our meals healthier and more flavorful, it also supports the local economy. If you’re looking for something that is sure to please the kids, The Ledges with its fresh food and spectacular ocean view make it the perfect place for casual family dining. Open daily for lunch and dinner, and serving up everything from kid favorites like mac’ n cheese, fish and chips, grilled cheese, chicken fingers and burgers to traditional Maine fare such as fried seafood and chowders, The Ledges is Pure Maine, and it’s delicious!
Great food, unbeatable hospitality, pristine landscapes, cozy accommodations and myriad of exciting activities are just some of the reasons why so many of our guests choose Sebasco Harbor Resort as the location for their annual family reunions. The memories you create here will last long after you have left and they will be waiting here for you upon your return.
