Tanks A Lot!

Once again I am writing about gas prices and how they affect your vacation plans. Now in a previous blog I taught you all about the math and hopefully you learned that the rising prices really do not add that much more to your vacation budget. But just in case I haven't swayed you yet, I have talked Mark and Amy into running a Tanks A Lot special for guests who stay with us. This special offer gives you a $10 gas card when you stay one night, a $20 gas card with a two night stay, $30 with three nights and I guess you can do the math from there! It is just a way for all three of us to say thanks for choosing us and we appreciate your business. Please remember that you must mention this special when you book your room and it is not good with any other offers or discounts. So I am standing by to greet you when you arrive and will have your gas card waiting!

I love laying right here in the kitchen - this is the old floor that is going to be replaced soon.

Our Journey to Bath

Before Amy and Mark ever even thought about making me a part of their family, they were thinking about being innkeepers. About a year and a half after they adopted me, they left me in Erie, PA and took a trip to explore possible towns in New England to open their new business. While I patiently waited at home with a dog sitter, they journeyed to Bath ME, their first stop on the trip. It was December of 2004 so it was cold and raining in Maine but they fell in love with the town and the people they met. Driving to the next town in New Hampshire in a snow storm, they knew in their hearts that Bath was going to be our new home. They went ahead and looked at the other places as planned, but Bath was it. In February of 2005, they left me once again to look at a house on the market in Bath. It had been a B&B but had gone to a private home for the past couple years. Well, lucky us, they loved the house and put in a bid. It was so exciting when the realtor called us in Erie to say the Benjamin F. Packard House was ours! Things started moving quickly then. Packing up the house in Erie, making long distance arrangements for licenses, sprinkler systems and all the things that go with opening a new business. On May 14th, they packed the car and this time took me along too. We closed on the house on May 16th and in six hectic weeks, opened the new Benjamin F. Packard House B&B! My life as a bed and breakfast dog had begun.
