It is starting to look a lot like fall here in Freeport! Beautiful red, orange and yellow leaves are starting to pop up on the trees around the inn and throughout Freeport village. ‘Tis the season of pumpkin everything and, of course, hot apple cider! Maine is the place to be during the fall, with pick-your-own pumpkin patches, apple picking, hayrides, sightseeing tours, and delicious homemade food, not to mention non-stop events happening throughout the season.
There’s just something about this time of year. Whether it’s the aroma of comforting food in the oven or the crisp breeze on my cheeks when I go outside, I just love Maine. There’s a lot to do and see in Freeport, especially when the town glows with the natural colors of the foliage. FreeportUSA’s annual Fall Festival is coming up next month, along with a variety of things to do around town, as I mention in this newsletter.
Wrapping up a busy summer, we’re deeply honored by all of the guests that walked through our doors this summer. Full of smiles, and some with fur, all arriving from different walks of life and countries, each guest always enriches my life and makes me very grateful for being an innkeeper. Two summers have gone by now since I’ve owned the inn and I’m blessed with each new memory made here.
Keep in touch with us on social media. We’ve been entering the social world one paw at a time and we keep our Facebook page updated with photos, recipes and events happening at the inn and around Freeport; find us at www.facebook.com/CandlebayInn.
As much as you’re excited to see the fall foliage this year, we’re just as excited to see you here at Candlebay Inn.
Connie Lay, Innkeeper
