Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site

Dalvay-by-the-Sea, once a summer home owned by a wealthy oil tycoon, is an exquisite Queen Anne Revival-style estate adorned with gables, dormers and bay windows. Dalvay-by-the-Sea overlooks Dalvay Lake and the ocean where seabirds spiral above waves and beaches. Explore the grand Victorian wood-panelled interior or settle into a chair in front of a sandstone fireplace. Cycle the shoreline, walk the grounds or simply relax in an Adirondack chair on the front lawn, taking in the coastal panorama.
