system being added
years since my last email newsletter! Time flies when you're having fun.There's been a lot going on and I certainly
want to get back to doing them on a more regular basis.
So whats been going on?
Well in the
last email of Oct 09 I was talking about the upcoming totally new
energy efficient hot water heating system that was going to be
installed over that winter.
It all got
fitted over a period of about 10 weeks and the comfort levels in the
guest and common rooms are now amazing with each room having its own independant heating control. Also added to all
the guest rooms were 26/32" LCD TVs inc
HD, IPhone docks and extended the Wi-Fi through the entire property.
In Oct 2010
the roof was completely replaced. It was all original monson slate but was needing repair every year.
Now it's perfect and I reused all the slate keeping it for
landscaping in the gardens.
This year the Brewster Inn is entering the 4th year of
major garden developments and should hopefully be pretty much
completed. The gardens received national press coverage in 2011
because of a giant butterfly garden that's actually in the shape of a
butterfly, which was added. It spans about 15' and not only does it look like a butterfly, all the plants attract
butterflies and humming birds as well.
Dexter Maine Gardens. Original fountain re-installed
was the big feature for 2011, the original fountain that was put back
outside and made to work. It looks and sounds AMAZING! It is a real
focal point and so tranquil. The entire garden is looking so great
that I have people asking if they're public gardens and wanting to
walk through them to see everything.
A total of 57 trees were also cut down to totally open
the gardens up as well. Cutting down so many trees has enabled more
planning and planting in more areas of the garden inc
replanting the first 24 lilac bushes all along one side of the
property. All of the wood that was cut down was not wasted in any way
as it was all given to families that needed wood for heating that
winter. All the greenery and branches
trees take a little longer to come down
