As September’s cool, brisk air navigates the transition between summer and autumn, Star Island plays host to mid-week gatherings with an unstructured design.
Geared towards a grown-up crowd with a penchant for relaxing, or simply needing a break from the bustle of mainland life, Midweek 1 and Midweek 2 provide just that. Rocking chairs on the front porch beckon an early riser to sit down and sip a cup of coffee while looking out over the front lawn. After the sun rises, wiggle into a row boat for a voyage around Gosport Harbor. Stop on Smuttynose Island for a short jaunt around the third largest of the Isles of Shoals. Back on Star, gather with others at lunch for a warming meal. Enjoy a conversation with a new friend as community highlights any stay on Star Island. Before dinner, investigate all the nooks on island. From historic graveyards to the Art Barn, Star Island public spaces are open for exploration.
Evening chapel services punctuate the night before guests are lulled to sleep by the sounds of waves lapping against Star Island’s rocky shore.
