In June of 1902, Sunset Resort opened its doors and welcomed the first guests. Today, the 5th and 6th generations are taking the best of what we've learned from our ancestors and are giving our guests the same hospitality enjoyed here for over 100 years. All of us want to welcome you to Sunset Resort and hope that you find the peace and tranquility that first brought our ancestors to our beloved Island.
