At Country Road Stables, the term “riding lessons” might be a bit of an understatement. Although equestrian mastery is their main concern, the facility’s instructors focus on more than just the act of riding a horse. Instead, they teach overall horsemanship, letting students get to know their horses through proper grooming, care. That rapport goes a long way towards helping students learn to ride—but so do the stables’ various amenities. Along with trails that snake their way right through the property, the facility features a large outdoor ring, plus an indoor arena and heated viewing area for year-round training.

Winds from the Atlantic Ocean sweep across Widow's Walk Golf Course, almost as a constant reminder that nature was here first. The 18-hole, par 72 course opened in 1997 to national acclaim thanks to its environmentally friendly design and commitment to protect the site's wildlife. Evidence of that commitment surrounds golfers as they weave past undisturbed wetlands and peer across the landscape from elevated tees.
The course's designers plotted holes and fairways around the property's natural contours instead of digging up the land or hiring a dinosaur to come and walk around for a while. Despite its friendly relationship with Mother Nature, the course may not be so friendly to scores. That's especially true of the 13th hole, which is widely considered the course's stiffest challenge due to its narrow fairway, water hazards, and red stakes lining both sides.
Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total of 6,403 yards from the tips * Four sets of tees per hole * Course rating of 71.2 * Course slope of 129
