GREETINGS FROM HODGDON ISLAND INN, Boothbay, Maine

Hodgdon Island Inn resident innkeepers, Pamela and Richard, look forward to Year number Two!

Richard and I (and our beloved and very regal feline companion, Charlie Darlie) hope that 2011 will be a very happy, healthy and prosperous one for you and yours!

What a year 2010 was!  As we wrap up our very first year as innkeepers at Boothbay’s own Hodgdon Island Inn, we can honestly say “there was never a dull moment”!  The fun started the moment we walked out to greet each guest and continued through the start of each day with helping to plan the day’s adventures and/or debating the merits of which area attraction should be on the “must see” list.  Should it be Boothbay Harbor? Pemaquid Point Lighthouse? Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens? The Boothbay Region Land Trust’s, Porter Preserve? or a Balmy Days Cruise to Monhegan Island?  And the fun continued well into the evenings while sitting with our guests (aka extended family members) on the porch under the stars, or around the remnants of the dessert tray in the living room.

Our resident feline, Charlie Darlie, the embodiment of Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat: now you see her; now you don't!

But the best memories of this past year are of you:  our guests, our friends, our extended family!

As Anonymous once said “some people come into our lives and quietly go.  Others stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same.”

Thanks for leaving those footprints on our hearts.  We will always remember the time we spent together.

We can’t wait for Year Number Two!
