It’s hard to leave a poolside lounger at the Conrad Pezula, but the hotel’s hike-and-kayak trip is one very good reason to get up and go. With the help of a guide, you’ll set-off from the Barnyard on a mellow hike through a forest brimming with local yellowwood trees. Descend the steep slope to a secluded spot on the banks of the Noetzie River. There you’ll hop in a canoe and paddle your way to nearby Noetzie Beach, a dreamy golden swath of sand. As you glide through the water, keep an eye out for the clutch of stone castles (turrets and all) built in the 1930’s as the summer homes of wealthy vacationers. Insider tip: book this nature tour in advance with the concierge.
