Migis; it’s not ‘just’ a hotel. It’s a group!
Our annual meeting Wednesday, swapping ideas and tools and thoughts and recipes and photos and memories. And a great lunch, of course. Thanks, Will and crew! A great day, to get us started on a stellar season for you.
Our faces…….you’ll see plenty familiar here, some brand new. All with a readiness, eagerness, to serve you. Meeting, demonstrating, celebrating. Touring the newly refurbished rooms at Black Point Inn (this one is #303; imagine resting on that window seat), trying out a new shower! Remember to click right on the photo. The starter image is when we lined up (or tried) by years of service, from 35 years to one day. Fun!
Do you know our other properties? Some ours altogether, some we have a hand in managing. Have a look.
If you’re visiting this page, Migis Lodge is an old friend. Hope you’ll introduce yourself to
the Inn at Ocean’s Edge
Black Point Inn
The Colonial Inn
The Sparhawk Oceanfront Resort
We enjoyed each other’s company. Now it’s time to enjoy yours! See you soon.
Spring! We have the windows wide open in the Portland office today. What a glorious feeling! If you call and speak with Sarah (she is busy confirming reservation requests), you are likely to hear seagulls squawking. That’s a bit of a change from Deets.
That’s just a few minutes ago. Can you hear the gulls? Smell Casco Bay?
Tuesday, we watched a while as the 125’ Spirit of Massachusetts was maneuvered through this same space, then towed down Commercial Street for an overhaul.
Migis mug visited Manhattan this week and had a lovely time, including a sunny walk last Sunday over the Brooklyn Bridge!
And earlier this week we finished getting the Spring Tonic enveloped, stamped and mailed. You got yours, yes? We have fun around the table talking about you all while we are at it! And like we reminded you, Like us on Facebook, okay? And share, of course.
And the Restaurant and Lodging show was in town, so John and Scott attended and picked up ideas….while some of us just picked up samples. Mmmm.
And #Old Port Magazine is preparing for its launch so visited our office with its own mug…
And sweet sounds are dripping from trees at Cry of the Loon and Casco neighbors…
and I poked around Moose Point yesterday and saw ice one side, open water the other, surrounding the Dinsmore causeway…
and the cove by cookout opening up…
And the Ridge master bath shower floor was being tiled…
And the chart is lining up, and brides and grooms are touring, and jobs are being filled, and quilts are being mended…we have turned the seasonal corner and are heading happily to opening 2014. We’ll see you sooner than you realize!
Spring is at last upon us at Migis Lodge, and we are so ready for it…..and we’ve been talking a lot to Wayne lately about our new collaboration, so it brings to mind favorite things!
And that reminds me of these charming young people, and their favorite places here. So, in honor of water, and spring, and Captain Dingley and all things watery, let’s revisit their favorites.
There are still openings for 2014; give us a call! If we don’t answer immediately, we may be out enjoying the emerging abundant sunshine. Leave a message; we’ll definitely call you back!
Things happen when we’re on vacation. Well, of course! That’s why we go! But if you’re a bit of a wonderer about the other what-ifs, wondering “what if?” sometimes it helps to know ahead of time…..
At Migis, we get questions (some time, we’ll tell you some of the funny ones!). Here are a few.
What if……we left his bathing suit at our last stop?
Go out the driveway and turn left, travel to Bridgton and Reny’s (your Maine department store!) right there on Main Street. Or, out the driveway and right, into Windham. You’ll find Levinsky’s, Marshall’s, or that Arkansas based big box store.
What if…we want to go to a movie?
Bridgton is home to the Magic Lantern, indoors (nice pub, too) and the Bridgton Drive-In! Windham has Smitty’s, fun and food along with flicks.
What if….we know people in the area and would like to have them visit? Easy! Just let us know, check them in at the desk, and be sure and let the dining room know in time to arrange for enough table space. They are welcome!
What if….I need a boarding pass?
No worries. There’s a computer handy in the lobby, attached to a printer. Or we can print it for you.
What if….I want to go fishing?
We have Maine fishing licenses for sale at the desk, and some loaner gear. Or you can go all out and hire a Registered Maine Guide (like Brooke here) to take you out.
What if….someone needs medical attention?
Or Mercy Express, in Windham.
What if….my husband forgot his jacket for dinner?
We have a nice selection on loan at the front desk.
What if…..we need to do some laundry?
Bring it to the front desk!
Our mission is to have our solutions exceed your what-ifs. We’ll list a few more soon! Come visit and enjoy our ‘place to steal away to rest’… reservations now being taken for our 2014 season.
