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!...

It is the quiet season

Saturday, November 20th, 2010



The quiet or off season has started. Last weekend was our last big weekend of having a no vacancy and now things have definitely quieted down. You would think I would have more time to blog then but I have been working hard helping Amy and Mark get the gardens to bed for the winter and cleaning up all the leaves. You would think that with only two small birch trees on the property there would not be too many leaves but with neighbors’ trees and wind there are always plently to rake and bag. Most of the patio furniture has been stored away so more room for me to run around and with it being cool out – I kinda enjoy having the patio to myself. If the outside is looking a little bare, the inside is in full bloom. The Christmas cactus is flowering (a little early but it has never really bloomed at Christmas time) and Amy is experimenting with bringing herbs in over the winter. So far so good but may have to move them so they can have more sunlight during the day. We are all adjusting to the time change and the fact it starts getting dark here around 3:30-4:00 p.m. but that is what candles are for – create a warm glow inside. Just the time of day to take a break and curl up with a good book or, for me, a comfy nap....
