We are having another great year, at Gladee's at Hirtles Beach booked all of July and August. We still have one full week in Sept from the 3rd to the 10th. October is a busy month for us as well, with things like the mahone bay scrawcrow festival. There is alway something interesting to see in the fall. We have added a few extra things for the enjoyment of our guests, like 5 new board games and two new body boards to use in the surf. There are lots of shovels ,pails, trucks, sand molds for the little ones to enjoy on Hirtles Beach. We will be adding new pages soon, so come back later to see what we have in store.

We are looking forward to another great year for our guests at Gladee's. We have bookings now for the spring, summer and fall season.

We have made some improvements and a few extras to the beach house this year. In the entertainment room we have made it a lot more fun for the whole family to enjoy in the evenings or when the weather turns bad. We have a large cabinet to store extra board games, a larger coffee table to play the board games on and a large high definition TV and receiver to watch sports or movies on.

The web site we have added more things as well, like more great comments from our guests on the testimonial page. Thanks for all the kind words over the years. I know all our guests have had a great time at our home and many have returned again and again. We will be adding more photos and info to our site throughout the years,so come back to see what's new.

Cheers Kevin and Suzanne
