The editors of New Hampshire Magazine have honored Star Island with a prestigious Best of New Hampshire 2012 award, naming it the state’s top “Hidden Retreat” in the category of People, Culture, Arts and Music.
There’s much more to do at Star Island (owned and operated since 1915 by the nonprofit Star Island Corporation) than just swim and enjoy scenery. From June through September at this piece of the Isles of Shoals you can attend conferences that range from writing residencies and painting to spiritual topics and natural history. A short boat ride just a few miles off shore from Portsmouth transports you to a rustic and rugged world where you can leave technology behind to learn, grow and relax in a picturesque setting.
We’re excited to be selected and hope that you take the time to come out this summer and see what all the hubbub is about. See what else made the cut at Best of New Hampshire 2012.
