The Leaf Peepers are Coming

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

The official calendar end to summer, Labor Day weekend, as come and gone but the beautiful summer weather continues in midcoast Maine. Along with the start of the “fall” season come the Leaf Peepers! Amy and Mark are getting lots of calls for rooms in mid September to the end of October for people coming to Bath and the surrounding area to view the wonderful colors of the fall season. It is hard to predict when the colors will peak but the state does take a stab at it with a website and map that visitors can use to plan their trip around when foilage will be at its best. There is also another great site to help guests plan driving tours and fall activities. So if you are planning on coming this fall – better call soon as we are booking fast and we know you don’t want to stay anywhere else!...

The Big Fall Weekend

Thursday, October 7th, 2010


Well the big fall weekend is here – Columbus Day. There is a lot going on in Bath this weekend with Autumnfest. There will be a great Maine made craft show, the Farmers’ Market, Citizens’ Involvement Day, music, scarecrow making and lots more all happening downtown on Saturday. The weather looks like it is going to cooperate so there should be a good turnout. The Columbus Day weekend also marks the end of the season for two favorite eating places – Fat Boys Drive In and their unbelievable frappes (we called them milkshakes back in PA) and Five Islands and that wonderful lobster. Yes, we still have lobster year round but there is nothing like sitting on the dock at Five Islands and scarfing down a lobster and onion rings. I guess being open only on a seasonal basis gives us all something to look forward to through the winter and mud season. Our cool little city of Bath, of course, does not shut down and we are a year round town. There are lots of things still going on throughout the fall and before we know it all the activities for An Old Fashioned Christmas in Bath will be gearing up. So don’t put away those thoughts of a getaway to Maine just yet – we are here, we are open and I am waiting to greet you when you arrive....
