Take time to properly explore our beautiful island. See weirs, smokehouses, dulsing operations, lighthouses and lobster pounds. Try sea kayaking or whale-watching (located within walking distance of the inn). If you are a birder or botanist, this is the place for you! Explore tidal pools, rockhound or look for sand dollars. Want to explore your artistic side? The Marathon Inn also hosts art workshops by Barry Coombs that integrate the rustic beauty of the island’s surroundings.
In short, be as adventurous or relaxed as you see fit, but come back to us at the end of the day for good food and comfortable surroundings. Perhaps you’d prefer to just sit on the verandah and watch the boats in the harbour or the birds at our feeders. Cool off with a swim in the pool; scenic walks and quaint shops are just over the doorsill.
