We will always be keeping a weather eye out on the bay and will, as necessary, adjust our daily schedule.  As new ideas come along, we embrace them.  This is a sample schedule to give you an idea of the ebb and flow of life at Moss Wood.


Afternoon arrivals and check in.  Afternoon tea provided for the hungry.

After check-in there will be time for a hike or to wander down to Bakeman Beach.  You might want to visit the Nearing Good Life Center, or if the time is right, explore the tidal pools on Pebble Beach.  If the afternoon winds have settled, it may be the time for a kayak on the bay for those so inclined.

Welcome drinks will be around 5:00, followed by dinner.  

And then, greetings and salutations.


Early morning breakfast treats and fruits will be laid out for early risers.

The sun rises at 4:50 am, and the morning’s still waters are a perfect time to be on the bay.
