Hurricane Irene

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Hurricane Irene is almost here and I am NOT happy. I hate rain and wind! Even though she will probably get downgraded to a tropical storm, I still get scared and then keep Amy and Mark up all night or have to be right next to them all day. They put away all the stuff on the patio and the rain is beating down hard on the plants. We are going to have an awful lot of clean up come Tuesday. I just hope Irene blows through quickly and I can get back to my normal B&B life....

Afternoon tea is served

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010


At our B&B we try to do everything possible to make our guests feel welcomed and relaxed. Everyday at 4;30 p.m., tea is served for the guests. When the weather is warm and sunny, tea is served on the patio. Guests can relax on the comfy furniture and soak up the sun and the beauty of the gardens. Hot tea is served with a variety of ever changing goodies – maybe brownies today and Mexican wedding cookies or fresh herb scones and jam, local cheese with fresh fruit – whatever strikes Amy’s fancy. If tea is not your thing, she will gladly get you a glass of lemonade or maybe a complimentary glass of wine to go with that local cheese. Most people do not take the time to stop, relax and treat themselves, but at the Benjamin F. Packard House we believe they should. So come for a stay and spoil yourself a little – you will be glad you did!...

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....
