Fall Foliage – Maine’s Fifth Season

There is no better place to be for fall leaf peeping than in Maine. The melting of hues of leaves from green to yellow, to burnt orange and crimson begins as early as mid-September in Fort Kent in northern Maine, and as late as Halloween in Kittery, at Maine's southern tip. The vibrant process begins […]

Elms of Camden – How it All Started

  When your bed and breakfast is in one of the oldest homes in town you get asked a lot of questions about its history, its former owners, who built the house, etc.. I wish I had all the answers starting from 1806, but pictures and documents aren't as available from that era. If only […]

Beaches, Picnics, and Swimming

How can it be that I've lived in Dallas and Kansas City and I thought it was HOT last week. It was only 88 degrees but it was hot. And humid! So after a morning of fixing breakfast, check-outs, errands, deliveries, etc. I asked James where could we go swimming. It's not like we are surrounded […]

Hiking in Camden

Has it really been a month since my last blog? What have I been doing? Oh, I remember, shoveling snow, and more snow, then more snow. And maybe more snow next week. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful and the Maine DOT have it going on when it comes to keeping the roads plowed and clear. But, […]

Love is in the Air

My how time flies. One minute its Trick-or-Treaters, Pilgrims, and Presents and then boom, Amore! Valentine's Day!

Bit By Bit, Piece by Piece

We are officially in the off season and James and I have some time to breathe and think about goals and projects for 2018. Part of that is marketing. The lodging industry is complex and getting more and more complicated with various online travel agencies (OTAs), social media, technology, competition, and other factors. So if […]
