Covewood is a very special place for families. Many families have been coming for three or four generations, bringing their children and grandchildren to the place they spent their summer vacations. Because of its remote location, Covewood offers children a degree of independence and freedom of movement that is not easy to find elsewhere. Two sandy beaches and approximately four hours a day of supervised activities makes Covewood the ideal place for children—and while the children are occupied, there are plenty of things for adults to do as well!
The Covewood Kids Program, which runs from late June until Labor Day, provides approximately four hours a day of supervised activities for children five and up. The activities focus on being outdoors in nature; hikes, scavenger hunts, sand candles, make and race your own boats, and “Capture the Flag” are some of the favorites.

Cookouts, Campfires, and Wine and Cheese Nights
Every week includes a Sunday night campfire. It’s a great opportunity to meet the other Covewood guests, and stories, songs, and s’mores are all included.

At the same time, there is a wine and cheese gathering in the main lobby and on the front porch of the main lodge for the adults.
Covewood's Main Lodge is the ideal location for a family reunion. By reserving the entire building, guests may enjoy the privacy they would have with their own cottage, yet have plenty of space for up to 30 guests. Contact us for family reunion availability and pricing.
The Covewood staff provides babysitting services based on their availability. Rates are to be negotiated directly with the babysitter.
Cribs and Highchairs
Covewood has a limited number of cribs and highchairs. It’s best to reserve these items when you make your reservation.
