Candlebay Inn

Greetings!

Candlebay Inn, Freeport, MaineI just have to say, autumn in Maine is something that is not to be missed. With the crisp, clean, fresh morning air, warm afternoons and cool evenings, this weather has to be my favorite. The leaves are starting to turn vivid reds, yellows and oranges. Experiencing fall in New England should definitely be a bucket list item!

We’re starting to get into the Halloween spirit and are featuring two new packages for September and October. Traveling with your pet? The Haunted Paws package is perfect! Take your fluffy friend out for a foliage stroll at Wolfe’s Neck State Park – we’ll even supply the map! Or, if you’d like to connect with the spirit world just in time for Halloween, we’re partnering with Leapin’ Lizards to provide either individual or group readings, provided by nationally known psychic counselors.

Freeport is the perfect place to get away this season!

Warmest wishes, 

A Specialty of the House

Cinnamon Caramel French Toast

Cinnamon Caramel French Toast1 cup brown sugar

½ cup butter

1 (8 oz) loaf crusty French bread, cut into bite-size pieces

2 cups milk

6 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste

1 tablespoon brown sugar, or as needed

 

Grease a 9×12 inch baking dish.

Stir brown sugar and butter together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves into butter, 2-4 minutes. Pour into prepared baking dish and spread a 1 ½- 2-inch layer of bread pieces over the top.

Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; pour milk mixture over bread into the baking dish and move bread as necessary to ensure all bread is absorbing liquid. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Remove and discard plastic wrap from baking dish and sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top of the bread mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbling, about 30 minutes.

Featured Guest

Featured dog guest at Candlebay Inn(From Clair’s owner) We rescued Clair from the local shelter in 2011. She is a pit mix. Her DNA says she is a mix of all sorts of things. She was found by the ACO just wandering in a field. We think she was used for breeding because the shelter thought she had recently had puppies. No one came to claim her so we snatched her up. We have had her for 4 years and we have done a lot of training with her because we want her to be a model for what a pit mix really is. Not vicious, not aggressive but well behaved, very loving and loyal to her people. We love her dearly.
