Have a wonderful Fourth of July!


  1. Oh my gosh.. these three are all absolutely beautiful!! What I would love to just stay in any of them!! I hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!

    xoxo Gert

  2. They all have great porches! Never stop doing B&B Friday.

  3. Great idea for B & B Fridays! Have a wonderful 4th of July - we will be sitting on our little lanai watching fireworks over the San Mateo Bridge and San Francisco Bay...

  4. Oh, I love the Candleshop Inn. My husband and I have not had our honeymoon yet and we would love to go out to New England and stay in B&Bs and sight see like crazy for about a week... however, we're on a tight budget (may be moving this year? Next?) So we are still planning on it, it just may take some time. I love coming to your blog and seeing all your entries. Thank you so much for all the work you do here. It's great being able to read about N.E. from someone who actually lives out that way and researches and takes photos... etc...

    Hope you are having a great day,

  5. I love them all Erin, but that Candleshop Inn looks just sooo pretty!
    I am going to have to go back and read some of your posts I missed.

  6. Love all of the places that you went while on vacation. Why not move out this way? You would be a shoe in as a travel journalist/guide...take the plunge! I've got to go and visit that tea shop! YUM! :)----<

  7. I want to say up front...I'm a 55 year old teacher who dreams of New England on a daily basis.
    We just returned from our first road trip from Georgia to Maine. I am still telling myself it really happened! We left our son in Sweden, ME to teach music this summer and we will go back some time in August. So, two trips in 6 weeks! How wonderful is that???!!!
    I wish I had found your blog before our trip! I love your B&B Friday. We stayed at The Peace With-Inn in Fryeburg, Maine. We are considering retiring part time to Maine after this one trip. Almost heaven:-) Best, Vicki


Thanks for your thoughts!
