- Can I get a witness! There is nothing more romantic then whisking your sweetheart away to beautiful coastal Maine to get married at an impromptu ceremony. One guest did just that and was married in our Tea Room. The only problem was they didn’t consider that they would need a witness to this joyous event. Jeneise was vacuuming in the South Meadow building when she was approached by the guests who inquired if she would be kind enough to stand in as a witness to their marriage ceremony. She was honored and gladly obliged, it was short and sweet and everything the couple wanted. She will always share this special memory with the guests as her name was signed to the marriage certificate as a witness to the happy nuptials.
- It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. Celia was cleaning one of her departure rooms when she saw a guest who was juggling with his bag of laundry. She retrieved her umbrella for the guest to use so that he could get to guest laundry without looking like he fell in the washing machine himself.
- Maine is know for many things one of it’s most popular attractions is it’s Lobster! Two of our guests mentioned to Janet that they were on their way out for their very first boiled Maine Lobster. When she cleaned their room she left them two little lobster soaps to commemorate the experience.
- Maybe we over packed, just a little. Two guests approached the front desk and checked in with Anna. She noticed that the guests seemed winded and they said that they had walked from our Squire building and had foolish decided to drag their luggage with them instead of leaving it in the car. She checked them in and then offered to assist them with the rest of their luggage. The guests gladly accepted the extra set of hands.
