About Windhover

For more than 50 years. Windhover has served the community as a place to learn, perform, and share the beauty of dance and the related arts in a natural setting.

In 1967, Herbert and Ina Hahn purchased the last farm in Pigeon Cove, a small village by the sea some two miles north of the town of Rockport, Massachusetts. The farm, on 4.5 acres of land, included a main house, cow barn, stables, slaughter house, various outbuildings and pasture land.

In less than a year Herb Hahn single-handedly converted the barn into a dance studio, the stable into a library, sheds and out-buildings into dormitories and he renovated the main house to function as a dining-kitchen complex. The performing arts camp for teenage girls opened in the summer of 1968 and during its seventeen years was filled to capacity with students from the USA, Canada and Mexico. During that period new buildings were added including a chapel/theater, a second dance studio, an outdoor stage for dance and theater performances, and a dining hall and kitchen in the main barn.

Windhover turned into a 501©3 non-profit organization in the 1980’s and now offers dance classes, a teen dance intensive, residencies and performances in all of the performing arts to the Cape Ann Community and beyond.

Beachfront at Cape Ann Motor Inn

You absolutely cannot beat the beachfront location of the Cape Ann Motor Inn at the end of Long Beach. Each room directly faces the ocean and the long expanse of beach….as well as Thacher Island and its twin lights. Hotel guests are treated to their private section of beach and the convenience of being able to run back into your room (several with efficiency kitchens) makes for a perfect day! We just treated ourselves to a two-night stay-cation along with several other friends and their families. It was a wonderful way to kick off summer together! Check out Cape Ann Motor Inn here.

Osprey Chicks Have Hatched at LobstaLand Nest

These screenshots from the osprey-cam hosted by Essex Greenbelt show 2 hungry osprey chicks being fed by one parent as the other looks on from a short distance. It is reported that 2 of the 3 eggs hatched and it’s not likely the third one is viable. If you are feeling a little less than motivated during this heat wave, take some time to watch this entertaining webcam out in the marsh behind LobstaLand.
