The Sachem’s Head region of Guilford is so-named because when viewed from the air, the coastline resembles the outline of an Indian chief’s head in ceremonial headdress. The yacht club and historic homes anchor the ancient, opulent neighborhood; resilient against the succession of storms that have battered the coast. Sachem’s Head, due to it’s geography, is isolated, and therefore tranquil. It is worth a visit on a lazy Sunday drive but it is also worth remembering that people live here for the peace and quiet, and to be respectful.
