The Maine House is currently getting a lot of attention. As with most older buildings it requires more maintenance than newer ones. Some of the work you will notice and we hope you will like it. But the new chimney will probably go unnoticed.

March Beach Day ?
As most areas in the northeast, we have had a very warm winter. However, the 80 degree days we had this week are the best.There are actually people at Harbor Beach today with kids in the water. BUT the water was only 43* !!
Water temperature 43* !!
Standing lookout for unwanted Canadian Geese
The Dockside has been invaded by Canadian Geese. There have been times when upward of 50 have been on the lawn along the water, in front of the Maine House. With mild temperatures and no snow they find this a great place to hang out. Unfortunately the mess they leave behind is unbelievable! In a scene from the movie Caddy Shack we are batting to persuade them to go somewhere else. So far our Down East scarecrows complete with reflective CD’s are doing the trick! They stand watch 24/7 in rain and snow with no complaints! I wonder if we can get them to make beds?
Dockside's scarecrow is ready for duty in all weather
Good news on airfare to Maine ! Southwest Airlines has announced that it will start flying to Portland, Maine as well as Boston and Manchester,NH. This can only help reduce fare and add convenience. http://portland.wcsh6.com/news/news/102759-southwest-airlines-way-pwm
Pictured below are a couple of important guys that help keep the Dockside maintained at a high level. Scott and Zach Chase are the carpenters who repair just about everything at Dockside. They show up in November and leave in April. Scott has been with us for over 35 years.
Siding, windows decks, leaking roofs and more.
In the project pictured above they are replacing rotten siding out side of room 115 in the Lookout. BUT they had to remove the stairs going to room 119 & 120 to get at the problem. Nothing is simple!
This is a continuation of a series about what we do at the Dockside over the winter months.
Fred gives room 113 in the Quarterdeck a refresh; He has stripped the old wall paper and painted the ceiling, walls and woodwork. There will be new upholstered chairs and lighting.
