|Greetings from the Harraseeket Inn! We're experiencing yet another weekend blizzard here in Maine which is another reason why traveling byAmtrak Downeaster makes so much sense for those lucky enough to have access to the rails. (That's assuming the blizzard doesn't shut down service!) We provide free transportation to and from the train station; no need to worry about those icy, snow covered roads.
Once you arrive at the inn, you can cozy up to one of our many fireplaces and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. (And it probably will.) There's nothing more romantic than being snowed in during a major blizzard as long as there's wood to fuel the fire in the fireplace and love to fuel the fires in the heart. Good food helps, too, and we're serving up plenty of that in both our Broad Arrow Tavern and Maine Harvest Dining Room. Check out our special packages and plan your own cabin fever reliever, because the way things are shaping up, we still have a few weeks of winter left!
Last month's trivia question asked you to identify a couple of pictures that represented one of our recycling intitiatives, which was turning used fryolator oil into biodiesel for the company truck and tractor. This months question has to do with this winter's abundant snowfall.
Which Maine town has broken it's all time record for the most snowfall in a 24 hour period, and what was the snowfall amount?
(Hint: It's NOT Freeport tho judging by the picture of Innkeeper Nancy Gray standing in the corridor outside the Broad Arrow Tavern, it probably should be!) All correct answers win a voucher worth $5. toward food or lodging on your next visit. Up to 12 vouchers can be used at one time, a $60. value.
Good luck, stay warm and safe and we hope to see you soon! (Bring snow shovels and roof rakes!)
