What to look forward to now?!

January 24, 2018 by

The holidays are over, winter is officially “here” and there aren’t any warm temperatures in sight for the distant future. Now, what?! Is there anything to look forward to that can possible fill the void of Christmas and sunshine?

The simple answer is: yes! Winter can be a quieter time of year, yes, but there are so many indoor activities and opportunities to take advantage of that you don’t normally get around to due to the hubbub of summer. Winter is a perfect time of year to release your inner artist, your creative goddess or start that indoor project you’ve been so good at putting off.

I had the pleasure of talking to a guest this week who is on her first week of retirement. She is, of course, loving every minute of it while on vacation but what about after when she is home and back to “reality”? Luckily, this woman is full of ideas to keep herself engaged and entertained. One of those activities is something that we offer right here at The Falls: rock painting! She had said she had “pinned” several ideas on Pinterest recently and was very happy to see it offered while on her vacation. Well, she will have no problem picking up this relaxing yet focused hobby! She worked on a mandala rock, the art of “dots” if you will, creating a rhythm and flow from the center of your rock outward. She enjoyed herself immensely and did a fantastic job, as do all the guests who partake in any crafts or art project we offer.

That is just one example of an indoor activity to keep yourself busy this time of year. There are so many ways to express yourself artistically. They don’t need to be creative, they could be practical! I’m happy that we at The Falls were able to give this woman the tools to practice what could become a serious hobby in her future.

Museums, art galleries, workshops, plays… I will get into more indoor ideas at a later point with specific places to visit this winter while staying in Ogunquit. For now, I need to wrap things up as I have a craft beginning in 30 minutes I need to prepare for! What’s on the docket today? Maine magnets and marble swirl glass balls!

Sure, it may not be as magical as Christmas, or as energetic as summer but there are plenty of fun things to do and look forward to while vacationing here in Maine this winter!

Beach Therapy

January 16, 2018 by

“If the ocean can calm itself so can you. We are both salt water mixed with air.”

This quote is so meaningful on a few different levels for me. Like most of us, I have days where I just need a break. A break from the, at times, mundane routines of life. A break from too many thoughts racing through my head, a break from the “what ifs” or thoughts of what needs to be accomplished but are no where near completion.

The beach is the BEST place to have this break. I feel beyond lucky to not only live, but work so close to my therapist: the ocean. InnSeason’s Falls at Ogunquit is a hop, skip and jump from not just one but three popular beaches that offer so many ways to unwind the mind. Even in the biting cold, the beach is a great place to escape.

Footbridge Beach is the closest beach to “The Falls”. You can walk out of your suite and have your feet in the sand in under ten minutes. Of course, with the ground being icy this time of year we suggest you take your time! Footbridge is a favorite for many for it’s simplicity. A narrow footbridge guides your way over the dunes to one of the most picturesque beaches around, with no businesses and hardly any homes to cloud your view, this beach really is secluded and peaceful. A great escape!

Ogunquit Beach, often called Main Beach, is the most popular by far. It is a bustling place in the summer, close to shops and restaurants but you can still catch plenty of people walking it’s white sand beaches into the winter, especially at sunset when the sky becomes painted in pinks and tangerines. This time of day is perfect to hop out of your car, take a few deep breaths and enjoy nature’s artwork. This beach is a mile south of the resort, very accessible, especially this time of year with ample parking. Convenient relaxation!

Finally, Wells offers several amazing beaches. Driving down Mile Road brings you to several of them. At the end of Mile Road you have a convenient parking lot that I associate with folks enjoying their lunch with a convenient and spectacular view. Seriously, it’s a great spot to have lunch in your car and I guarantee if you go you’ll see the majority of it’s visitors snacking on McDonalds French fries or a Subway grinder. If you decide to venture out of your car, like I did today, you have miles of packed sand beaches to walk. This is where I had my therapy session for today! I came across so many interesting patterns and treasures on the beach that it became a bit of an impromptu photoshoot. My favorite was an area littered with decaying lobster traps, filled with muscles and clams and seaweed. A perfect spot to recharge.

Just a half hour or so of being outside in the sun, making footprints in the sand was enough for me to feel a little more at peace, a little more centered and a LOT more grateful. Beach therapy may not solve all of life’s troubles but it certainly doesn’t hurt!

Whiskey Wednesday!

January 5, 2018 by

Did that grab your attention? Good! I want everyone to know about our weekly tours to the Wiggly Bridge Distillery in York, Maine. A mere ten minutes from the resort is a fantastic local and family run distillery that has allowed InnSeason guests on private hour long tours each Wednesday for a few weeks now. This is a young company, in operation for only six years, but man, are they growing and do they know what they’re doing!

The tour starts off with any of their signature, hand crafted cocktails that you can sip at their warm and inviting bar. And if you’re a slower drinker, take the drink with you while exploring the distillery process below. We see everything from beginning to bottling, with detailed explanations along the way. After the tour grab another seat at the bar for a sampling of the many spirits Wiggly Bridge Distillery makes. From vodka and rum to a gin even a whiskey lover can appreciate Wiggly Bridge has you covered.

The atmosphere is laid-back, cozy and smells like a delicious bakery. It’s pretty heavenly especially since we’re in one of the coldest, snowiest winters Maine has seen in a while. The best thing about this tour, besides the whiskey? You don’t have to drive! Hop into the InnSeason shuttle and we’re a whiskey a go-go!
