Bingo and creme anglaise? An eclectic mix at Migis Lodge.

In the continuing spirit of multiple choices for activity…or passivity…in the daily roster at Migis Lodge, we bring you Wednesday evenings.

You have already had, we imagine, a full day.  Of breakfast, of Chinese yoga with Beth, of waterskiing, of cruising to the island for cookout lunch.  Or perhaps of watching others in these activities from a peaceful perch somewhere.

Now comes the evening, and dressing up a bit and enjoying your dinner.  On Wednesday, instead of choosing your dessert from the menu, Charity serves up a dessert buffet…have it at your table, or box it up and carry it to Boulders and join in the stimulating and feverishly fun Bingo with Colby!

Chocolate pot de creme, mixed berries, raspberry coulis, whipped cream, vanilla creme anglaise, a varied cheese plate (served with pita chips, stuffed fig and pistachios), raspberry squares, key lime pie, carrot cake and cookies…chocolate pillows, world peace, and chocolate chip!

We believe you will search far and wide before you again encounter this great combination of chocolate and cheering…..

AWITL…a week (more or less) in the Life, at Migis.

What do we do?  Oh, my.  Eat, and play Duck, Duck, Goose, and eat, and have cocktails, and SUP, and visit and catch up, and celebrate birthdays, and shuffle, and eat, and swim, and sun on boulders, and slide, and eat and drink, and say Cheese, and read, and swim, and visit the gardens, and learn, and dress up, and run, and dress down, and yell Bingo!  And run, and relax, and renew and refresh.

And that’s just some of it.

Here’s a 3 minute look at this week.  Like to join us?

At the end of the Migis Lodge driveway, hang a left.

It’s 15 miles from the Migis driveway to the center of Bridgton, Maine, well worth the extra 5 miles. (It’s 10 to the center of Windham).  Nothing in particular against commercial centers, but if you need to get a couple of things done AND you’d like to see a bit of Maine, hang a left at the end of the driveway.

I picked up my daughter from a matinee movie at the charming Magic Lantern today and was reminded how much I enjoy this little town.  Park on Main Street, or one of the convenient municipal lots behind the shops, and take a stroll.

Leave your car and you can walk…..to a good-sized Maine department store, to an independent bookstore, to a well-stocked public library, to a guided nature walk starting with a covered bridge, to a scenic park with picturesque bridge over the brook, to a nice spot for a meal or coffee and pastry, to the aforementioned theatre (home also to a pub) and a number of antique stores.  You can even visit an aesthetician at Kathleen of Bridgton!  And a little beach and playground at Highland Lake.

I have some photos here…some a bit bleak, as most are from early spring, but still gives you an idea.  Add warmth, flowers and grass in your imagination for a good representation of Bridgton.  Also, once back in your car, there’s a Hannaford Supermarket complete with pharmacy, so….and if you’re out late, a drive-in theatre!  Retro Tuesdays…next week double feature on Tuesday is Airplane and Stripes.  Laugh much?

And the hospital, and the white-steepled First Congo church, and the art gallery on Main, and the gastro pub…….

Yes, try turning left at the end of the driveway.  See a bit more of Maine while you are here.

We still have some 2014 available at Migis.  Call for reservations at 207-655-4524.
