Personal Retreat Registration Opens April 1
Visitors who wish to spend an overnight visit on Star Island without signing up for a program are welcome to enjoy a Personal Retreat. This is a perfect way for new visitors to “test the waters” and become familiar with Star Island, or for seasoned guests to spend a weekend in the rejuvenating and uplifting embrace of island life.
All the rush and fuss of mainland life is left behind when you arrive on Star Island. Enter the Oceanic Hotel and step back in time to a simpler, less hectic era. Rooms are simply furnished and meals are hearty and served family-style. You might swim, play tennis, rent a row boat, hike around the island, visit the marine lab, or choose your favorite rocking chair on the porch and watch boats sail into Gosport Harbor. There are plenty of fun activities to do and locations to visit on Star Island.
The day begins with coffee service on the porch before breakfast. If you get hungry between meals, sandwiches and snacks are available at the snack bar. Generally rooms do not have private baths and showers are available every other day — Sustainable Star practices. Special accommodations are available for the mobility impaired.
Our season runs from mid-June to mid-September.
