At your average Maine Bed and Breakfast, summertime doesn’t bring much in terms of changes – trimming bushes, touching up paint, or fixing those problems that just crop up now and then – but the Maine Stay Inn is no average B&B! We’re working on projects daily and, of course, keeping on top of those daily issues (think a rattling air conditioner or a loose toilet seat). This
summer we’ve debuted some great new lawn and porch furniture, with more to arrive shortly – absolutely fantastic for soaking up some sun in our wonderful backyard. The gardens have seen some major overhauls and expansions, with a host of new plants that should bring some great color and texture to the landscape. And as we speak, we’re in the middle of two sizable projects in the yard – creating a peaceful retreat in the side yard between cottage suites 5 and 6 and removing the old foundation and “sunken garden” from the backyard. Trying to save the existing perennials while leveling the area is proving to be a fun adventure!
Inside our Maine Bed and Breakfast, too, the changes keep coming! The living room renovation is finally complete, and we’ve even brought in a flat panel TV so that we have a good spot for casual Olympics watching. Can you believe the Opening Ceremonies are just days away?! Even the kitchen has seen some big changes, with new cabinets, a fresh color scheme, and a brand new ceiling! Of course, we couldn’t stop there, could we? Of course not! So with tech-friendly changes in mind, we’ve added iPad docking stations to more rooms and even brought a bigger flat screen to Captain Walker’s Suite 16. So now you can flip on your favorite station in the morning and brew yourself a cup ‘o joe, because we’ve even brought in your very own Keurig coffee brewer.
But as you know, we’re not a Maine bed and breakfast known for sitting on our laurels, so stay tuned for more changes inside and out as the summer progresses. Stay cool!
