Dockside Guest Quarters

So… What do you do all winter?

One of the most common questions I get is “what do you do all winter?”
Lots actually, we work on room renovations, maintenance and other projects that we can’t do when there are guests around. We just performed one of the more interesting ones: taking down the flag pole in front of the Maine House. It hasn’t been down in over 5 years and needed to be painted. Good thing we did because we found some rotten spots that need to be repaired. Yes, the flagpole is wood.

October surprise

The Guest Quarters finished up the 2011 season with yet another memorable storm. Most of New England received an unseasonable Nor’easter last Saturday night, knocking out power and dumping heavy wet snow. Along the immediate coast we didn’t have nearly the problems that interior areas still are recovering from. We did get 5 inches of snow and 40 mph gusts, more January like than October.

Here is a picture Sunday of the gazebo!!

The Dockside has a wonderfully rich history after being in business for 55 years. A major part of this is the people that have worked here over the years. Check out these pictures of our 3rd generation “Docksiders”.

Transformers have come to Dockside !

When the fog lifted this morning we saw this “thing” in front of the Dockside.
There was much speculation as to what this was; boat, robot or spacecraft? Or even a “Transformer” from the recent movie. It turns out to actually be a movable drilling platform. This will be used to locate solid ledge in preparation to rebuild Sewall’s bridge here in York.
Sewall’s bridge is the wooden bridge that served as a detour when the Route 103 bridge was replaced last year.9-24-11 002

The Dockside has emerged from the dark ages and power has been restored. Goodbye Irene, and good riddance.

August 29, 2011

Good bye Irene !

Overall Irene didn’t really cause much damage at the Dockside. Lots of leaves and small branches down but no damage.
BUT – we have been out of power for over 24 hours now. Our guests have been more than understanding and have for the most part rolled with it.

The restaurant is closed until power is restored.

What a shame as the weather is absolutely beautiful !!
