Spring is here! (Sort of)

Filed under: Uncategorized — innkeeper @ 9:18 am

While the first official day of spring has come and gone, here in Maine the weather the last few weeks has still seemed distinctly winter-ish. Snow and ice are still on the ground, and while the temperatures are creeping upward, it seems hard to imagine that in a few short days April Fools’ Day will be upon us! This time of year always brings changes in the type of work that we are doing as well- we begin moving from indoor projects to outside, working on the grounds in order to prepare for the new season. The ALM cottage is progressing rapidly; insulation has been added in and we are picking out details such as furniture and flooring. We will be posting updated pictures at some point this week on our Facebook page, so be sure to check back with us frequently. We are also beginning the search for help in the 2017 season- if you are looking for work or know someone that is for the summer, we are happily accepting applications for most positions at the email address “[email protected]”. As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, we are still in the reservations office from 9 AM to 2 PM weekdays, so if you are interested in reservations or if you simply have questions, please feel free to call us at 207-244-5036, or toll-free at 800-244-5036.

In Transition

Hello, readers!


The weather’s been pretty wild here over the last several weeks; we’ve gone from getting roughly 4 feet of snow in about a week to 50 degrees and sunny back to single digit temperatures. With that being said, we’re happy to see much of the snow melting off, and we’re beginning to turn our minds toward spring cleaning both outside on the property and inside our cottages and the hotel. If you’re coming to visit this summer, be sure to have a look at our lobby; Janet Madeira did fabulous work this winter on putting on new coats of paint and choosing new carpeting for the first floor stairs- it looks great! We’ve also chosen a few bureaus to refinish this winter in an effort to keep the rooms looking nice. Also keep an eye out on the web for our new Xanthus website, which should be going up soon, with more information to follow in a later update. Spring is coming soon and reservations are picking up, so be sure to contact us soon  at 207-244-5036 or email [email protected] to book!
