Our sandy beach offers the perfect place for the little ones to learn to swim and build sandcastles. The expansive swim areas and main dock are great for the teenagers to sunbathe, float or get some swim laps in. A quick walk to the store, the kids can find candy, ice cream cones and toys. Most kids take a trip to the store at least once daily. "Barn Nights" are also a hit. Kids and parents alike can get together for line dancing, movie, karaoke, crafts and more. Barn night schedules vary but is typically offered a couple nights a week. Ping pong, shuffle board and volleyball are offered. Kids of all ages play together at Ames Farm Inn and build lifelong friends. A few of these friends are now married and their children are now building friendships of their own.
