Growing in popularity among our guests is charting a sunset sailing cruise with our good friend Capt. Johnny Stevens of Mobjack Sailing. It is exactly as it sounds, a sail around the Mobjack Bay area at sunset, lasting 2 to 2 and a half hours. If you’re lucky enough to go when the moon is to be full, you get a moonrise sail thrown in at the same time! Anyone interested can contact Capt. Johnny or set a sail up through us.

Greg being helpful....or not

Of course there's a sunset too

No, we aren’t grouchy. We’re crab happy! We catch them right off our pier and when we get enough of them, we like to incorporate the crabmeat we get into our breakfasts. For instance, crab quiche: 

With a side of muffins!

  

Crabs are also lots of fun to catch, not just for us but for our guests as well: 

Bill catches the first crab of the season

 And of course humans aren’t the only ones interested in crabs: 

Remember: When a crab plays "got your nose", it really got your nose

 We would like to take a quick moment to say thank you to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for all the wonderful work they do including their work on helping restore and maintain healthy crab populations.

Try stand-up paddleboarding!

A couple of weeks ago, Steve Casper and Mackey Hall, the founders of Chesapeake Boardsports, set up in our back yard giving lessons in paddleboarding. It was great fun and surprisingly easy! After a simple lesson, everyone who tried it was standing up on their boards and paddling away. These boards look like super-sized surf boards and are well-balanced for easy navigating. Here’s some photos from that day:

As you can see, everyone was able to stand up and paddle away. Visit Steve and Macky’s website at go-standup.com.

We recently celebrated our one year anniversary as a fully operational Inn. It’s been great fun and lots of work. Lori’s brother Dave is now living on the property and with his help, we now have time to revive this blog. Yea!

Ok, so last year our very first weekend open happened during Mathew’s counties Tour de Chesapeake and we had a full house. It was a great way to get the proverbial ball rolling and everyone had a great time. How do we know this? Because those very same guests made sure to book their rooms for a return visit on our one year anniversary. It felt like a visit from old friends but enough talking, it’s picture time!

The weather was perfect

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil and yet we still had lots of fun!

Best way to get ready for a long day riding the next day? A big pizza dinner the night before of course!

 

Good times and we’ve saved a spot for you all next year 🙂

Another of the suites we have completed is the Chesapeake suite (formerly known as the Roman Holiday room). Like the East River suite in the post below, we are very happy with the results. It was a lot of hard work but we want to start our new enterprise with a fresh new look all around.
