Happy fall! As always, summer has gone by a little too quickly. Many of our guests return to us year after year, and the beginning of June always brings familiar faces. We were able to share the joy with parents of Bowdoin College graduates. The following week was Bowdoin Alumni week. As usual, the alumni celebrated in high style, whether it be their 10 or 50 year reunion.

Susan Carlson held another of her quilting workshops in June. Susan and her students took over the Inn for a weekend and produced some amazing work! One of the highlights for her students was visiting her shop to see Stevie the Crocodile. You can see Stevie and other samples of Susan’s work on her website.

The way lobster is done.

We hosted two bridal showers, and three educational groups. Two of those groups were awarding scholarships. We also hosted a large family reunion the first of July which extended over 5 days. There were lots of games played by all, and many lobsters eaten!

Throughout the summer we had our share of 90 degree weather. Our guests found the water temperatures perfect to swim and kayak every day, but were happy to return to their air conditioned rooms in the evenings! Colby did not want to miss out on the fun, and he made sure he went swimming each day as well.

Whitecaps!

Many of our guests stayed for longer periods this year and took advantage of all that Maine has to offer. Some took day trips to Camden, Rockport, Eagle Island, Peaks Island, as well as Monhegan, while others visited L.L. Bean, and also Bath, where there are many antique shops. A number of guests visited the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and attended the Maine State Music Theatre, also at Bowdoin. This year’s favorite show was Mamma Mia, based off of the songs from ABBA! Another favorite activity for some of our guests was sailing on the Schooner ALERT, a 70ft Maine built wooden tall-ship. You can find more information on the ALERT here. Guests also toured local islands on the Victory Queen.

Cookin!

Cookin!

The sunsets on Lookout Point have not disappointed this summer. Two fluke micro-bursts came through which took down two very large trees at Landingview and Moseley cottages. Luckily there was no damage to either cottage. The Inn was full to capacity during July and August.

We also had our own small family gatherings, as three of our children and their families visited with us throughout July and August.

Some old trees fell down in a gusty storm.

Some Cottage weeks still available and be sure to ask about 3 day weekends this fall.

Hope to see you in Maine soon and be well,
