October snow, leaf color and green trees… a mixed bag

We have had an odd fall, late leaf color, unexpected snow, highs of 80 degrees in early October and leaves sticking to trees right into November. Here are some photos taken in early November by our guest Kathy Fink. Thanks Kathy.

Good Morning Waffles!

The other morning, Aunt Helena (our other extremely talented breakfast cook) whipped up some AMAZING buttermilk waffles!  She served them with fresh blueberries and strawberries as well as homemade whipped cream.  She also made a banana blueberry smoothie and sliced cantaloupe with lime juice as a starter.  I was the breakfast waitress of the day and every plate I took out to the porch came back to the kitchen completely licked clean, no joke!  All of our guests raved about this sweet, yummy breakfast.  Compliments to the chef!  Not to mention it was a beautiful morning on the river.  I snapped a photo of a family visiting from England, aren’t they cute, and another close up of Helena’s creation

Good News & Bad News

Which do you want first?  Well, I’ll start with the bad news, because it’s always best to end with the good, right?  The bad news is that we will no longer be supplying wine at our afternoon wine and cheese hour (due to Maine state laws and regulations).  The good news, is that starting next season we will be offering a small wine list.  That means our guests will be able to choose the wine they want and purchase it by the bottle.  This is where we need help.  If any of you have any wine recommendations we would love to hear them!  Not to worry though, a yummy beverage will still be supplied at wine and cheese.  Erin has been creating some very delicious lemonades and non-alcoholic sangrias lately.

Another Beautiful Day

It’s another beautiful day on the river here at Bufflehead Cove.  It’s the perfect day to go kayaking or have lunch on the porch.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed in hopes that the rest of the summer is filled with days like today!

Come Find Happiness in Maine

USA Today did an article on 10 of the best places to find happiness, and guess who topped the list? Yep, our very own state of Maine! We share this list with places like Bali and Hawaii just to name a few. The writer said that the list includes “places where there’s fulfillment, good food and enough of it, good weather, families intact, and a sense that they don’t have a desire to look for something elsewhere,”. I know I’d like to visit several of the places that share this honor with us!  Check out the article here!

Honey, Mugs and much more…

We’ve decided to create our own little gift shop here at the Cove and we wanted to share a couple special items that we are stocking up on. Our gift shop houses a small array of items including books, soaps and chocolates but we are especially proud of our honey! The honey we are selling comes from Bufflehead Coves own bees and we must say, it is pretty delicious! You can try some when you get here!!

We are also very excited about the arrival of our mugs from Deneen Pottery.  Each mug is hand thrown, not to mention they are lead free and dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe!  What more can we say!?
