Summer 2016
Even More Flowers
We've always had lots of flowers around the inn, in past years supplied by a wildflower garden planted along our driveway. This year we're taking it up a notch. Instead of wildflowers, we had a local landscaper design and prepare two large beds with a variety of flowers just aching to be cut.

Being more orderly than the wildflower garden, the cut-flower garden is also aching to be weeded. Below, a recent guest partakes in a little Weeding Therapy (our program accredited by the Thomas Sawyer Institute).

Making a Grand Entrance
Our main entrance has always been a simple door leading into the inn's dining area. There was no good place to hang coats nor wet umbrellas, nor to get out of the weather should it be raining. We're fixing that by adding a mostly glass entryway.

The first stage shows the frame constructed over a new foundation in front of the old entrance.

The frame has been filled in with the doors and a couple of flourishes. It's getting close.
Construction has completed, painting is done, time to clean up. Just in the nick of as our first guests arrive in two days.

Goodbye, then Hello
One of our favorite trees, the one pictured on our mugs, has been in decline for a few years. Given its location close to the inn and our strong winds, it had become a saftey concern. Last month we said goodbye when it was taken down by a fellow firefighter.
In its place we now have a pretty young balsam fir welcoming guests to Ann's Point Inn.

Winter 2013/14
Major renovation has begun
One standout feature of the inn has been its indoor pool. Rather than upgrading the 1980s-era pool, we have decided it makes more sense to use the space for other activities and so have embarked on a complete redesign of the room. You can follow our progress through the photos posted below.

Red Sky at API, Fall 2013
James was again in stellar form for the second RedSky@API Cooking Retreat. Plans are for two more retreats next year in June and October. For more information, and to see a short video, click on the image to the right or contact the inn.

Summer 2013
Wild Flowers
For the past three years we have tried different ideas for creating a wildflower garden to help supply the cut flowers seen around the inn. Only one of those years was really successful, so this year we've upped the effort. At the beginning of June we created three raised beds seeded with two different wildflower mixes and a few specialty flowers. Periodically we'll post a photo below so that you can follow the garden's progress.

New Window for Blue Heron
New window for Blue Heron Originally, Blue Heron was built as a workshop, so although it is a large room there weren't enough windows to take in the great views. We have begun to rectify the window shortage by adding to the south wall a floor-to-ceiling window making the room considerably lighter.

Spring 2012
Kitchen Renovation
Those of you who have visited the inn know that the kitchen is over-sized and at one time (circa 1965) even fashionable. This spring it is getting a makeover: a complete gutting and rebuild. The result is quite an upgrade, as these photos show.
