The weather has cooperated with our opening as well. The snow is almost completely gone. The plants have started to grow. I saw crocus blooming in the yard today. We are getting the gardens cleaned up now that they have thawed.
New items for the gift shop have started to show up. Dozens of Log Cabin mugs were delivered today.
As usual, Matt and Aimee did a superb job getting the Inn ready. It looks lovely. Reservations are steadily coming in. Looks like April will be much busier than last year.
Come visit us if you have not done so in the past. Would love to see you! Sue

It would be nice if the weather improved....at least we missed the snow yesterday....just got gale winds.
Most of the snow is gone, and the bulbs are starting to spring up.
Reservations keep pouring in...taking several each day. Going to be a very busy year. Thanks to all of you!
Hope to see all of you, Sue

Speaking of flowers, 2 people posted on Facebook that their bulbs were coming up already on Bailey Island. So, of course, I ran up to the Inn and checked our many gardens. But, they are all still snow covered. It is melting today, and suppose to be 40 tomorrow. I will go back and check then. Will keep you posted!
Well, the Harpswell town meeting is tomorrow. Big crowds expected as the Cedar Beach issue is on the schedule. Hopefully, there will be a good end to the controversy over the beach. It sure has been an issue here in town. Will keep you posted on that as well.
Reservations are pouring in......call soon if you have not. We are filling up!! I can barely keep up with phone, email and confirmations.
Giant Stairs grill and Cooks restaurants are back open. We are going to one or the other for dinner. Think we'll flip a coin!
Hope to see you all this season!! Sue
P.S. I am so excited to open for our 34th year.

Well, we are almost in March! That should mean warmer weather......spring.....and we open soon! I have been very busy with phone calls and emails this week.....everyone must be hoping for the end of winter and looking forward to staying with us on Bailey Island!
The robins have moved into my yard, as well as our annual visit from Mr and Mrs Mallard (we call them Mildred and Marley). They have come for the past several springs.....enjoy some food and just hang out. I have even trained my dogs (labs) not to bother them! Yesterday, Mildred tried to sit on the snow, which was very crusty, and slid down the hill. Fun to watch!
Hope you are all well. Can't wait til we open! Sue

I do prefer the sunny warm colors of green and blues....but today is nice.
The weather may be harsh, but it has not slowed down our reservations. They are coming in fast and furious. Going to be a busy year.
Matt and Aimee have been busy painting and repairing (and shoveling). The rooms will look spiffy as usual. Even the kitchen got a fresh coat of paint.
This is the beginning of school vacation. The kids got an extra 2 days as school was cancelled yesterday and today. They will have plenty of snow to play in! Great for the ski areas.
Well, I must do some confirmations. Hope you all have a happy, lovable day! Sue

Unfortunately, we will have no Maine shrimp this year. The government put a ban on shrimping this season. So, I will get extra scallops.
This is one of many, many reasons I love living on Bailey Island. We buy our scallops and lobsters from people we know. Talk about shopping local!! We also have a crop share from a local farm too. That will start up in June.
Well, I think I know what's for dinner tonight. Yum.

So, Thank you to Victoria! For all of the above reasons.
Hope all of you are making it through the winter.....it has been a tough one.
52 days until Spring! 66 til we open for the season! Stay well, Sue
