The fullness of summer is upon us and our gardens are in full bloom. Pockets of green with punches of color are sprinkled around our property creating mini oases that invite rest and relaxation. Some of our favorite blooms include the showy Lacecap hydrangeas, which love the soil in Maine, and the intensely yellow Asiatic lilies. We’ve created a pallet that mixes cool purples and blues with riotous reds, sunny yellows, and punchy fuschias. We invite guests to stretch out in these tranquil spots and experience the full beauty of late summer in Maine: warm, languid days punctuated with cool, star-filled nights.
The weather was so perfect we decided to sneak away and take off on the Rugosa lobster boat. What a great way to see the Kennebunk river and the beautiful coastline. Our captain Dave was great too bad we only caught 2 lobsters! We did have the opportunity to see President Bush (Sr.) out in his speed boat of course the secret service was near by. Since the sun was so tempting to stay and play we decided to have a quick cocktail at the Arundel Wharf Restaurant riverside – it was perfect on a day like today. Well our fabulous photographer Christian and his lovely wife Melissa will return tomorrow to finish the pictures of the new Quiet Moments Suite, The Bungalow and the outside of the inn so we went and bought beautiful hanging baskets I think they will look great in the pictures. Tried another new recipe today poached peaches in honey syrup wow they were delicious can’t wait to make them for you. Very excited that summer bookings are coming in strong, life is good!
