I should not whine about winter weather so much because I don't believe that there'll be many takers for this one. ☺ Nevertheless, someone is going to win The Lovell Inn for a mere $125 entry fee. The inn is worth nearly a million dollars. The current owner won it herself twenty years ago. Visiting the site will tell you how and provide a link to a photo gallery. It's a lovely place. I know because we pass by on our way to the Fryeburg Fair. I even notified my Fryeburg Aunt and Uncle who let me know that they may act crazy, but they are not. Ha!

About twenty years ago, my sister and I began to do some serious research on purchasing a B&B. We were friends with a successful B&B owner who was willing to teach us a few things and we felt that we were perfectly suited to such an enterprise. In those days, I cleaned compulsively and Sis has always been a friendly, sociable gal. We even found a home that we felt would work well with gardens and paths through the woods, and a landing on the river. We were charmed by the idea of guests using kayaks to explore the river. After all, my sister and I kayaked on the river several times a week loving every minute. It was ultimately that landing on the river that did us in. The cost of insurance would have been astronomical.
Well, it was a lovely dream while it lasted. Ever have one of those?
