Can it really be July?


This is Sue. Cannot believe we have only been open for less than one month. Opened June 19th this year. 

We have implemented many changes due to COVID. I have to tell you the first weekend I was in tears.  
It seemed our "new way" was not as hospitable as we used to be. The contactless check-in. Serving room service only. But our guests have been more than gracious (as usual). And now, after a couple weeks, we are in the swing!

We are going over the top with the room cleaning! Takes us about twice as long as in the past. We wash everything in the rooms at checkout from quilts to floors , doorknobs to lightswitch......then we either use a UV light or an electrostatic sprayer and/or room air purifier! So, you can feel safe here. 

In the past years, the health inspector would come and give "grades".....if we got a 99 instead of 100 we were upset. This year, if there were "grades" , I am sure we would get 1000!

Our yard is spectacular! The view is amazing! Our crew is stupendous! And, our food is always a hit. 

I am one lucky girl.

Hope you all stay healthy, and come see us at some point.

Interesting times


This is Sue. For those of you who do not know, we normally open the first weekend of April. However, the pandemic prevented that from happening. We now have an opening date.....June 19th. BUT, we can only rent to folks from the State of Maine. This is per our Governor.

There is currently a 14 day quarantine on anyone from out of state. We are anxiously waiting for that to be lifted. We are now allowed to take reservations from folks out of State, but if the quarantine is not lifted, we would need to cancel those reservations.

As you all know, the information about this health crisis changes daily. Some good news, some not so good news. The good news for Maine is that our numbers of cases and deaths are very low compared to other states. We are very thankful for that. And our restrictions and guidelines are very strict. For any business to open there are pages and pages of things we must adhere to.

As we move along through the next month, we will be working towards doing everything we can to keep everyone safe and healthy. I will keep you all informed both on the blog, Facebook and under our Covid Banner on our main web page.

We always have prided ourselves on catering to our guests in every way possible. It is much more challenging this season. We will put 100% of our efforts into meeting that challenge.

Til next time.....stay safe!
