Liscombe Lodge
 Liscombe has been a good place to stop and wait for decent weather for more than half a century. However the marina aspect has been neglected by the present operators and the land-side operation has been poorly marketed. Liscombe is one of three provincially owned resorts that for the last few years have been managed by an American hotel management company. They haven't done this well and the resort is currently up for sale. Anyone's guess what will happen. When I visited last (2015) there was still fuel and Chester was still running the marina. This is a great loss, as the site is beautiful, you can ride out a hurricane here, and I have , and it would be a fine site for year round ecotourism. Unfortunately, the operators concentrated on catering to bus tours and their business model is a failure
