Schooner Roseway

 We were treated this past week by a visit of the Schooner Roseway to Merriconeag Sound.
The Roseway is a 137ft Wooden Gaff Rigged Schooner Launched in Essex, MA in 1925. It is now
on the Historic Registry. It was a Pilot Boat in Boston Harbor in 1941 for the Coast Guard Reserve. It was restored in 2005 in Boothbay Harbor, Maine and now is part of the World Ocean School in Boston.  Our local Schooner the Alert, which is 70ft did a special Sail that day to Welcome the Roseway to Casco Bay. Schooner Roseway anchored just south of the Inn on the Bay overnight.

Some of you may be wondering where is Sue? How come she hasn't been doing the blog. Is she to busy buying flowers or is she out playing in the garden. Both of those things are true but she has also spent the last few months ( with some help) renovating a rental home in front of the Log Cabin on the water side.
The renovation is spectacular and is renting year round on a weekly basis. You can view the house on listing #610479.  It is a 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bath totally furnished with AC and Wifi and an amazing sunset view. The house is rented independent of the Log Cabin. You can get information through the VRBO website or email

August is finding us quite busy with our regulars, it is so nice to welcome everyone back. We did have a cancellation next week in the Sunset Room if you want a last minute get away while the weather is still beautiful and the pool so inviting.
