Hi everyone. Just a quick post to tell you about our past month here at the inn. It was by far our busiest month and probably can’t ever get any busier as we were booked solid almost the whole way through. That’s in large part thanks to the good folks at the DIY Network.

We posted at the time of the announcement that a house not far from our inn was chosen to be renovated top to bottom by several of the DIY network’s shows. So as you can imagine we were thrilled to host many of the crews who worked on the project. In between two weddings and a family reunion that is. They were a lot of fun and we got to serve several lunches on site for them and have some nice sit down dinners for them back here at the inn. A really good and crazy time!

We’ll have more info soon, especially about how you can register to win the house they renovated (we got a sneak peak and it is AWESOME!). But for now, you get some pictures of the last month!

We became one. For a day anyway. It was the annual Tour De Chesapeake here in Mathews County Va a couple of weeks ago. We were happy to host once again, our very first guests from two years ago plus a whole lot more as we became a stop along the way for many of the bike riders that come to our area.

It was sponsored by the Mathews Maritime Foundation (who owns and operates the Mathews Maritime Museum) and they brought refreshments that they gave out for free to all who bike riders who stopped at our Inn for a quick break. And there were a lot.

One of the reasons the Maritime foundation wanted to team up with us was to highlight their Heritage Trail Project that now includes the East River. Right off where we’re located. They handed out brochures and talked to all interested parties. All in all, it was a big success for both the foundation and us!
