Guests of ours who come each year for the New England Auto Auction have started a new business called Muvbox.  It is a storage container that turns into a mobile restaurant.  Incredible!!  Please check out the video….

Art is Alive in Rockland

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Frank & PJ's Abode by Karin Grouf

From time to time, we have guests that are in the area to take painting workshops with local artists.  For the past three years we’ve had a wonderful guest from NY named Karin Grouf who has stayed with us while taking classes with David Dewey’s Maine Masterclass.  This morning, I found Karin in our backyward gazebo painting our cottage.  I asked if I could photograph her work to share with you all and she graciously agreed.  In the near future, original works of Karin’s will be available for purchase here at LimeRock Inn.

Especially for Ewe

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I thought I would write about a wonderful guest of ours who visited last night.  Sandi Cirillo is an art teacher and fiber artist from NY.  Her business is called Especially For Ewe.  She is making her way up the coast to Lubec and is giving some fiberart workshops along the way.  Sandi has stayed with us about 6 times now, she feels like part of our family at this point.  Please check out her website to see her work.  The site contains her schedule of workshops.  If you ever have the opportunity to attend one you won’t regret it.

Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Well, the 62nd Annual Maine Lobster Festival went by like a flash of lightning.  We also had a visit from one of my dearest friends, Karen along with her husband Kyle and their little daughter Jessica.    Despite some sprinkles, this years festival seemed to be a roaring success.

Starting August 7th is the annual Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors show.  This is the largest in the water boat show in the country and draws people from all over.  The show also features many fine furnture craftsmen.  A good friend of ours, Paul Smith of Cathedral Woodworking, will be showing again the year.  Last year, we purchased a beautiful porch swing for the front of the inn.  DSC05128

Guests have throughly enjoyed using the swing.  It is truly beautiful.  As Paul now lives in Michigan, our swing will be in display at the show this year as a sample for visitors to see.

One of the highlights of the event is the Boat dog trials.  Here is a photo of last years winner.
