Not so extreme makeover

I caught Matt, Aimee and Daisy in the same room this week. Aimee is setting up the rooms for the opening, and Matt has been crawling in closets, eaves, crawl spaces all winter re-doing the plumbing. So, a good part of our winter "Makeover" will be unseen by most of you (unless you would like to go in the crawl spaces). We have replaced a couple room carpets, and some curtains as well. Some years require more renovation than others....some less. It is a never ending work order for Matt and Aimee to keep the Inn looking like we all want it to look. Thankfully, we are closed for a period of time to do just that!

Speaking of closed.............32 days 'til we open!!!!!!!!! Then my work begins....well, I am in charge of taking reservations in the winter--and that has been keeping me quite busy! But, I will be happy to be officially open, and interacting with guests in person instead of over the phone. Winter has been mild, as it has in a good bit of the country. We did just get a substantial snow storm this week, but it is melting quickly. The spring bulbs had already started to grow. I think the gardens will be ahead of schedule this year.

The Portland flower show is this coming week, and the New England Gift show is coming right up--sure signs of spring. The days are longer, and the sun is warmer. Come on spring! We are ready for another busy year!

Hope to see all of you! Sue
