The perfect Get-A-Way for Peace, Quite, and Tranquility.
The apartment is perfect for 2. It really gives you the felling of a tree house, especially with the screened-in porch. After Labor Day, the island becomes almost deserted. There are still many of the local people around, but not many tourist. We were able to explore the island privately. Checked out the beaches which we had to ourselves. Iron Ore beach which was my wife's favorite. I liked the even more secluded Cable's Bay which is only accessible by a 0.2 mile foot path and bridge. The inland lakes have great fishing holes for large & small mouth bass and large blue gill. The owner took us out in his small boat and my wife and I caught about 20 fish in a 2 hr. time period on plastic worms and spinner lures. My wife actually caught a 12" Blue Gill which is huge for a Blue Gill. The owner couldn't stop talking about it. We would have done a lot more fishing but the Water Sports shop was closed. They rent out all the boats on all the lakes. Like I said, the island becomes deserted the day after Labor Day. Next time I will strap my canoe to my car. The island is perfect for cyclists who like trail riding such as the C&O path through Maryland. One word of advice, be sure to book your ferry far in advance, especially during the summer months. We arrived on a Tuesday and planned to leave Saturday but the ferry was booked Saturday so we had to ferry our car back Friday, which worked out just fine. We just rented a junker 1995 Chevy Tracker and went to the beach Friday. Then we watched the sun set on the west side of the Island at Donegal Bay. Absolutely the best sun set I've ever seen. The best part about the Island is the peace, quite, and tranquility. I've been to small secluded towns in Italy where it was tranquil, but now I've found a secluded place in my own country. A home away from home. The perfect get-a-way.
