    Be Still My Beating Heart,

    Health Inspector just left. Her first comment was ..... Oh My - this is a mess. My heart hit my shins. We have a side of our kitchen that becomes the general dumping area for mail, receipts, etc etc. But on the "inn - side" of the kitchen everything is kept exactly as it's supposed to be...

    Interesting tip

    Just to lighten the mood .... Quiet, respectful, gracious guests. Left me a copy of "50 Shades of Grey" with a $10 bill tucked inside. Nope ..... I neglected to see if it was "bookmarking" any particular page.

    Yarmouth Nova Scotia

    I'm blatantly asking for help from anyone in the know. There is a new ferry between Portland Maine and Yarmouth Nova Scotia. I would love to do this for DH as a Father's Day gift. He's great and this is the first idea that has inspired me. Ferry travels over night (leaves Maine 9 p.m...

    Leavenworth WA ?

    We're looking at a "just us" vacation next year. I'm currently really intrigued by Leavenworth WA as an Oktoberfest / winter getaway. Looks as if it has the charm of old Europe without leaving the country. Does anyone here have any personal experience or feedback? We've taken one non-family...

    My ghost Myrtle

    So we had a reporter come and stay to write an article for a local paper. We've had pieces written about us and our ghost a few times before, but they were short and not particularly noteworthy. I thought this would be the same ..... but it's not...

    Hotel from He!!!

    OK, so I'm starting a new thread. I wish there was a forum topic called "Help - what have I done". Bottom line I responded to THE email. Turns out that, when they first aired "The F Word", GR needed a home-based vegetable garden. GR called the local council for the best person to make it...

    Yes .... We clean under here too !!!

    Saw this on a TV show recently and it made me laugh. A gentleman was inspecting a hotel room and when he looked under the bed found a tent card with the words: "Yes .... We clean under here too"

    Chargeback Unexpectedness ...

    So ..... had my first chargeback. It was unreasonable and I constructed a rebuttal that was pretty much water tight and the $$ were refunded very quickly. The day before we left on vacation I got the card holders rebuttal of my rebuttal. It was horrible. Words like deplorable, filthy and...

    Day off ..... and a car drives up ....

    I'm In glorified PJs .... just finished cooking and eating a huge pile of waffles. Health Inspector. House smelled great, but I hadn't even started to clean up after lunch, let alone the plates from last night's dinner. She passed us on everything and left saying "keep up the good work"...

    Oh Dear ..... crescent rolls, apples, lemon lime soda .... This shouldn't have been this good ...

    Just tried a new recipe that had entirely rave reviews on line but sounded too good (read simple) to be true. Country Apple Dumplings: Apples, rolled in crescent rolls, topped with butter / sugar / cinnamon and soda then baked. My "go to" list of sweet entrees is much much smaller than my list...

    Guests that laugh at / with you

    Another of my silly / irrelevant posts that I thought might make you smile. Texan stayed with us before Xmas (LOVE my Texan guests). Heated discussions about and appreciation of my hot sauce selection. We had fun the whole time he was here. I just received a huge package full of hot sauces...

    Tired of the TTY scam .... Tired of the BBB scam .... right now just TIRED

    Apology - feeling sorry for myself post ahead. Is it just me or do some of you get ridiculously tired and depressed when you're NOT at your busiest. So many things to do that we can't afford to do. No drive or desire to do anything .... just get it DONE because I have to. Horrible bookings...

    Guests that make you cry .....

    One night only - gentleman arrived with shopping bag of clean clothes and a lap top. Here to help his in-laws get ready for the holidays. GREAT guy and only guest for the night. Turns out his wife was The Maine Lover and died falling off her favorite rocky peninsula just north of here two...

    24 different guests in 48 hours .....

    Not really complaining .... but WOW. Every bed, in every room (sofa beds, spare rooms, cots) with a new body in each one each night. It's fabulous to have this many guests in the off-season, but it reminds me why I have a two night minimum in the high-season. Is it bed time yet ??????

    Solution for business guests when your place is NOT business oriented

    After spending the weekend with friends in Boston we spent Sunday relaxing and window shopping. Saw this and fell head over heels in love with it. SO cool. Not going to get it - but I want it :-)...

    The lies we tell .... the fun we have....

    OK - supposed to being taxes but need a break .... so here are some of my favorite sayings. BREAKFAST .... "Smells good" ? I have a line of Better Breakfast scented mists that I use right before you get up in the morning. "Looks good" ? Oh Oh - that could be a problem. Right now, I can do...

    Hats, hats, hats .....

    As we all know (with Alibi Ike being the latest "victim"), wedding parties can be a PITA. So I wanted to share this story with you. We recently had a house full of wedding guests that included some of the bridal party and were billed as being the young, fun crowd (NOT something I wanted to...

    I don't put pics of me on my website (hate photos) but just in case any of you were wondering what I look like ......

    How would you handle this .....

    Smallest room booked for two people. Reservation specifies that Mom is staying by herself for the first night and her son (picking him up from camp) will join her the second night. Not relevant, but she arrives two hours late. Relevant - she arrives with her husband. ..... Me - so who's...
