Well, April is almost over.....and we have had a busy month! We actually filled up last night!! It was a treat to put the "NO" out on our new sign. We have 7 rooms tonight, which is great for a Sunday in April. The weather is perfect....sunny and warm.....and is suppose to be all week. The flowers have started to blossom, grass is green. Nice.

My daughter in law, Aimee has a birthday tomorrow. I won't tell you how old she is (43). Ha! Of course, she looks 23.  For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting her....she is beautiful, brilliant, and kind. I am so happy to have her in my life.

Alicia came home this month too. It is a delight to have her back also.  We have a super crew here. No wonder folks return year after year. Not to mention the view! Speaking of view....Matt posted a picture of the Full Moon on facebook this week, and the Maine Office of Tourism shared it. As of this morning over 19,000 people had seen it!

Well, I must get back to laundry....the down side of being full! Sue

Gear Grab

  Hi is me, Alicia I am back!!!  Yes I did have a nice warm Winter in Florida. It was crazy busy. I think I worked more down there than I do here. Terrence had a great Semester at School and will start back here in Harpswell tomorrow.
So many new changes at the Log Cabin. If you are a York Room junkie just wait until you see what is in store for you. A few of the major things is a new King Bed, new carpet and new Air Conditioning. Every Room has a few new items. I am anxious to get over to see the Harpswell Room with its new appliances, carpet, TV, etc. It may be awhile since the room is booked for 2 weeks with some of our very special yearly guests. Can you believe that we only have 2 openings next weekend, the Mt. Washington and the York both with King Beds and both a spectacular view of the Sunset.

Today the Log Cabin crew was out and about cleaning up the Shoreline of Harpswell. This cleanup is headed up by the Gulf of Maine Research Center and sponsored by many local business. The focus of the cleanup is to gather fishing gear, rope and trash that has washed up on the beach and shoreline. Some of the lobster traps get washed in by storms and the fisherman are not sure where they have gone. The gear that is salvageable is identified by the fisherman's license number and then returned to them. It was a nice sunny day but very windy and cold. This Florida girl wasn't ready for that, the first weekend home. It is a great family event and a way to give back to our fabulous community.

Before closing I should say that even though we are about 150 miles North of Boston we live in New England  and are saddened by the bombings and events that happened this past week. We can all share a story of someone we knew that  was at the Race or lived in or near Watertown. Our hearts go out to the families affected. We live in Maine but we are Boston Strong.

With Peace, Alicia

Thank You!

       Well, I am sitting at my desk at the Inn....looking out at our new sign! I know, it looks just like the old one.....but it is brand new! If you looked close at the old and new you could tell. This is just one of the new things here this year. We have done more renovations than in past years....and the place looks super!
    Now, this all happens because I am lucky enough to have a very talented family. Those of you who have stayed with us in the past know Matt and Aimee.  For those of you who do not know them, Matt is my son, and Aimee is his wife. Every winter they spruce the place up.....paint, clean, plumb....whatever needs to be done. Many of you have not met my other son, Adam. Adam is a carpenter (well, jack of all trades). He and our very good friend, Chuck have been here doing some rather extensive windows, replacing siding, painting doors, jacking up the I write, they are outside doing some log work on the front of the building.
   I have to tell you, the four of them....Matt, Aimee, Adam and Chuck have done an absolutely superb job. They are all perfectionists, and it shows! I am so fortunate to have them all. Now, some of you are probably thinking.....sure, this is their Mom talking.....but, honestly, they are the best!
    So, I thank them all from the bottom of my heart. And, those of you who come to stay with us will enjoy all of their hard work.
   We are approaching 50% full call us if you would like to stay this season!

I must get to work now! Sue
