Almost full!

 It is a beautiful day here on Bailey Island. All the spring flowers and trees are in full bloom, grass recently mowed. 

We only have one room left tonight....and from here on we are quite busy for the rest of the year. We are ready!!

My youngest grandson, Josh graduates from high school this year (Matt and Aimee's youngest son). Where did the years go? I am fortunate to have my family so close.  Living in Harpswell is a hard place to leave, so neither of my sons did. 

I just went through the check-ins for today.  Only one rooms is a first time guest. I am not sure what I return rate is for guests, but it is very high. We must be doing something right!

If you have not visited, or are looking to return, give us a call!

Hope you are all well,

 HI there!

Guess I got busy last year and ignored the blog! My was quite a year.

So, we are beginning our 44th year. We opened April 5th. For those of you who are not familiar with Bailey Island, we had an extremely bad winter.  Four very large storms, that did unprecedented damage the shoreline. Fortunately, we do live on granite, so it can only do so much. 

And, fortunately, our Inn sits on the top of the island, so we were fine. Things are slowly getting repaired. There are contractors working on the bridge, which was full of debris, and a few granite blocks were moved. They are scheduled to complete the repairs by the end of May.

The yard here is looking lovely as usual. Bulbs are blossoming, grass is nice and green. Almost time to start planting annuals! We have had a lovely sunny week this week, which is a treat after the nasty winter and spring.

Our crew this year is Matt, Aimee, CC , Sophie (she is new, and wonderful), and myself. As all are aware, it is impossible to find employees.  So, our team is strong, once again.  We look forward to seeing all of you. We have rooms available if you haven't reserved, but they are filling up fast.

Hope you are all well,
