Romance and Companionship

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

It is the season of love and we have had a lot of couples taking advantage of a romantic getaway to Bath and our B&B. They love the quiet and curl up in front of the fireplace to relax and unwind from the stresses in everyday life. They stroll downtown and browse the local shops bringing back a bottle of wine from Now You’re Cooking to share before dinner at Solo Bistro or one of our other great restaurants. All this has me thinking that maybe I need a companion too! Mark, Amy and I watched the Westminster Dog Show this week and I saw all those wonderful breeds strutting their stuff for the judges. Of course, no Italian Bergamascos were there but that is okay – we know we are in a class by ourselves. But seeing all those dogs makes me think a little “mini me” would be a wonderful addition to our family. Now I just need to convince Amy and Mark that I would help train and keep a youngster in line. Wish me luck and if all goes well I may have help with all the greeting and blog writing in the future....

Put a Little Romance in your Life

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

That time of year is back when all thoughts turn to love and romance. Of course I am talking about Valentine’s Day and the whole season that surrounds it. The 14th of February falls in the middle of the week this year so people actually have two weekends to plan a celebration. What are you thinking of…flowers, a nice bottle of bubbly, chocolates, romantic music? You can actually do all of these and in one great romantic getaway – our B&B! Amy and Mark offer a Valentine’s Day Package that includes a lot of great extras for an extraordinary price and the rate on a second night is unbelievable! So check out the package and give us a call to book a room. (You can also just call and book a romantic getaway without the package and have a great time!) And, as always, I will be here to greet you when you arrive....

Get Away for the Holidays

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

It is hard to imagine but the holiday season is right around the corner. Here at the Benjamin F. Packard House we are already booking up for the Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend. What a great idea to get away for a long weekend to relax, unwind and take in all Bath has to offer. Think about it – a relaxing stay at our B&B with gourmet breakfasts and afternoon tea in front of the fire in the great room, Thanksgiving dinner at one of the great local restaurants (no clean up for you) and experience Bath’s kick off to the Christmas Season with all the events planned for Friday and Saturday. You may even get your Christmas shopping done early! Start a new tradition and spend your holidays with us....

The season’s starting early

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

I was on a brief vacation – no I didn’t get to go anywhere just Amy and Mark but I did get a cool dog sitter, Cindy, to come and stay with me. She does like to spoil me rotten and I pouted a bit more than I was feeling just so I could get some extra attention. But Amy and Mark are back from their little trip and work has begun again. Although it is only mid April – the patio is back open for the season with the comfy furniture, the tinkling fountain and the garden starting to bloom. I am really trying to not step on the plants coming up but I do love to walk in the garden. I must say it is looking quite good and is a great place for guests to relax, put up their feet and enjoy afternoon tea. I’ll try and contain myself and not beg too much for a little tea treat for myself. Hope to see you soon relaxing on our patio....

I’m Back at Work – Innkeeping!

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

I’ve had to shake off that lazy attitude and get back to work with guests here this weekend. My innkeeping duties never end. Greeting guests is my favorite part of the job; they make such a fuss over me and my dreadlocks. Amy cooked them one of my favorite breakfast this morning – the Packard House version of Croq Madame. She grills homemade English Muffin bread then tops it with warm ham, poached eggs (poached for exactly 3 minutes to make them perfect), fresh grated cheddar cheese and chopped parsley. Unfortunately there were no leftover this morning so I was left out. Sometimes being the innkeeper is tough!...
