The annual Easter egg hunt will begin at 10 a.m. on Lighthouse Beach and Harbor View’s grounds, with a special appearance by the Easter Bunny. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the hotel’s signature restaurant, Water Street, will open its doors for a brunch created by Executive Chef Nathan Gould. The menu will feature farm-fresh seasonal favorites, including Marcho Farms Lamb Leg, Rabbit Pâté and Honeysuckle Oysters. Brunch is priced at $55 per person and $25 for children 12 and under.
