It’s been a beautifully warm and dry spring.  In the past couple of weeks we’ve hosted many more guests than we usually see before Memorial Day Weekend. Some years I cringe at the thought of sharing our muddy roads and cold fog with people who have traveled so far to be with us; but this year, the flowers are huge, the grounds are ahead of schedule (thanks to the weather and the… Read More

Now’s the time when the reservations start flooding our world…the sun is shining, the tents and RV’s are begging to be opened up and aired out.  In the Spring, most of my morning and evening work hours are spent in front of the computer, answering e-mails, returning phone calls and booking sites.   This is my 23rd summer of this responsibility and I take it as seriously now as I did before… Read More

RV Shipments to Grow for Sixth Straight Year in 2015 The RV industry’s shipments will total 361,400 units in 2015, a 3.9% increase above the projected 2014 total of 348,000, RVIA President Richard Coon announced at “Outlook 2015: Good Things Ahead,” the kickoff event to the association’s 52nd National RV Trade Show. “This is a great time to be part of the RV industry,” Coon told attendees during his presentation. “We’ve recovered from… Read More

Like anyone else in a mom and pop business, we juggle a lot of balls and are always hoping that we didn’t lose one up in the clouds or under the couch.  Last Saturday I was in Augusta to be part of the Fiber College Class Jury…if you’re curious about the September classes proposed, check here.  On Sunday after we notified the 2013 instructors, I travelled down to the Boston Gift Show with the… Read More

I’ve been looking for a postcard image since I made coffee two hours ago and still no luck…but as I slog through the pictures, I spend most of my time smiling because of the memories they bring back. Because it’s reservation season and we seem to have more “new” guests than we’ve ever had, I thought you might like to see some pictures that show specific campsites. These are photos that we’ve… Read More

Hi Cheryl, This is what it looks like to stand at site 93 and look to the ocean…site 73 is the site in front of this one…both are really wide, shaded wonderful sites…a minute to the bathhouse and playground…2 minutes to the beach…

The phone’s been unusually busy for the last few weeks…and then we figured out why…there’s a picture of one of our campsites and a mention of us in an article about Waldo County Maine…YIPPEE!   Don’t get me wrong, we really like being part of a more hidden piece of the Maine Coast…but who doesn’t like to see their name in a National Magazine?  If you’re into electronic versions of magazines, you… Read More

Between you and me, I wish it would get cold and snow because I’m tired of new projects and that tiny little voice that keeps nudging me to take advantage of our unseasonably warm weather (think 50’s, not 70’s).  But alas, it’s still really nice out and this morning Steven was outside working with a crew by 7AM…this time they’re expanding the workshop space underneath Dad’s deck…’cause boys never have enough room… Read More

We got together this morning for pecan Cinnamon rolls and coffee…just to catch up a bit and talk about the months to come…but as always, the subject drifted to camping…and then to “what are we going to do next summer?”  And the 50’s-60’s weekend was born…just like that. Tentatively slated for July 30-August 1, Searsport Shores Ocean Camping will pull on our poodles skirts, fire up the muscle cars and dance to… Read More

The Penobscot Bay Watch has been collecting information this fall to establish the importance of the upper Penobscot Bay fish nurseries.   Their blog is one of my “must reads” and one of the only RSS feeds I subscribe to.  Although we’re not able to stay as active as we’d like, we do manage to participate sometimes and we were happy to invite the group to use our beach for their research. Trained… Read More
