Ok, so we don’t actually have snow on our beaches just yet, we’re still feeling festive.  Our guests are busy with shopping, eating, and hopefully some relaxing!  The lights are up and the decorations are out – thanks to Chuck in Maintenance and Susan in Housekeeping.  We’re listening to holiday music and creating gifts for our loved ones upstairs in the Activities Room.  Tours to the lit-up Nubble Lighthouse and the Victoria Mansion in Portland are on the schedule and filled!  (Don’t worry, these will be offered all month) We will be shuttling guests to Kennebunkport to enjoy the Christmas Prelude and our very own ‘Christmas by the Sea’ is coming up quickly in Ogunquit.  Phew – and that’s not even everything!  Give us a call to hear what else is going on this month, and if the phone is answered with a hearty ‘Ho Ho Ho’, don’t worry because you’ve called the right place!  Like I said, we’re feeling festive.  Hope you’re enjoying your holiday season, too!  Sue

Time to give Thanks (and eat!)

It’s just around the corner…

I don’t want to freak anyone out, but, did you know that in less than 6 weeks it will be Christmas?  To help you feel better, or just get more excited, I thought I’d let you know the festivities and dates around town – time to get planning!

  1. Kennebunkport – Christmas Prelude – December 1st – 11th
  2. Ogunquit – Christmas by the Sea – December 9th – 11th
  3. York – Festival of Lights – December 3rd
  4. Wells – 31st Annual Christmas Parade – December 11th
  5. Portsmouth, NH – Vintage Christmas – All of December

Don’t forget about your shopping list, either!  We have the Kittery Outlets just south of us, historic Freeport and LL Bean not too far north, and tax-free shopping in NH.  Most Ogunquit retail shops have holiday hours, as well.

If you need more information about local activities, feel free to give me a call at #207-646-4600.  I’m happy to answer all of your questions and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll find it for you!  Thanks and enjoy the day, Sue
