Maine Bed and Breakfasts and The Maine Innkeepers Association renew the “Hospitality for Habitat” Program, slashing rates 50% and reminding travelers about springtime in the state, while simultaneously supporting Maine’s Habitat for Humanity. The Maine Stay Inn and Cottages is proud to return as a participant in this year’s fundraiser. This year, you can save 50% off of weekend rates in our most
deluxe suites (Romantic Cottage Suite #7, Deluxe Fireplace Suite #12, and Captain Walker’s Suite #16) for stays Sunday through Thursday at our Maine Bed and Breakfast from April 25 through May 27, 2011.
Freeport, ME – March 21, 2011 – Some of the finest Maine Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, and Resorts will slash their rates by 50% this spring to support Hospitality for Habitat, a Maine Innkeepers Association (MEIA) program that raises funds for local chapters of Habitat for Humanity, announced Greg Dugal, Executive Director of MEIA. Participating Innkeepers all over the state will reduce room rates by half between April 25th and May 27th, 2011 for guests willing to write a $35 donation check payable to Habitat for Humanity.
“Every dollar donated goes to help build homes in Maine for deserving families,” said Dugal. “Travelers taking advantage of the Hospitality for Habitat program have been very generous over the years, and seem to enjoy this opportunity to stay in the best Maine Bed and Breakfasts, resorts, and hotels at greatly discounted rates.”
This is Hospitality for Habitat’s eighth year, and the program has grown each year since its start up. In 2010, despite the challenging economic climate, Innkeepers and their guests raised over $21,000 for Habitat projects. The Association has donated over $51,000 to Habitat for Humanity since the program began in 2004.
“We are grateful to the Innkeepers and their guests who continue to support this program each year, stated Dugal. “It really is a win, win. This fundraiser helps to bring visitors to the state during what is traditionally a slow time for tourism, gives visitors an opportunity to stay at wonderful properties at terrific rates, and supports a great cause.”
