Occupying 230 waterfront acres on the Rockland–Rockport town line, this all-encompassing resort offers luxurious rooms and suites with private balconies overlooking the water or the grounds. All are done up with warm color schemes and have plenty of amenities. La Bella Vita Ristorante, the Italian eatery, has an approachable elegance. Outside there's a stone terrace with a fire pit. Inside, the space flows into the more casual Enoteca Lounge, which has an antipasto bar.
Next to the sloped-entry pool is another open-air bar. The 18-hole course has been ranked among the best in the region.
