Yesterday I had a meeting with some of the staff with hour exchange Portland (HEP) they are in a state of transition as they move from a heavily funded model with several paid staff to two part time workers running the organisation on 20hrs a week combined. It's a hard time for them and they are still finding their feet about how to its going to work out. As with all the people I've met in Portland the staff ...
It's well documented that communities pull together in times of need. I learnt about a great example of this when I was in Boston. Carol a timebank member told me about neighbors for neighbors. ( http://neighborsforneighbors.org/ ) An initiative set up by a Boston resident during a major snowfall. The website united people who were snowed into their houses or couldn't dig out their cars with people in their area who ...

The local government subsidise the cinema so every Tuesday locals can watch a film for $5 15.

Today I went out on Stephen and Louisa's boat. It was glorious, I wore my anchor vans and hoisted the main sail twice! The weather here is prone to change. As Louisa and Stephen said "if you don't like the weather wait a minute" Here are two pics of the same shot of the harbour, one with heavy fog and one clear ...
... gaps opening up in the UK where people will have benefits cut, advocacy disappears as local agencies lose funding, some members of the community will become more reliant on others for day to day tasks: lifts to the hospital, collecting shopping, about the house work. This could be seen this alternative currency for filling this gap. Anyway Stephen was a delight to meet and I'm going sailing with him and his wife on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bufflehead Cove Inn Kennebunk
I have traveled all over the U.S. and New England and have never found a better place for R&R. Jim and Harriet Gott (Innkeepers) always make my stay at BHC the best. Bufflehead Cove surpasses any B&B that I have experienced. The inn has wonderful spaces that are generous in size, which is unlike the typical New England inns with narrow staircases, halls and small nooks that innkeepers pass for bedrooms. I have stayed in every room and the cottage and all have a unique feel. The rooms are thoughfully decorated by Harriet and she really has a special flair for creating lovely spaces. Jim is a terrific chef/cook and bottle washer. He also makes sure that all aspects of the property are cared for and that their is always a fire in the main house's fireplace when there is a chill in the air. The waterway makes for a very meditative setting. I just love spending time on or just by the river.
The Best in Kennebunkport
What a special place. Gerry and I have stayed in several inns including the White Barn during many years of visiting Kennebunkport. We have found the perfect spot. We stayed in the Hideaway suite and loved it. It was spacious and the view of the river was wonderful. Breakfast on the porch was very special. The fact that the inn is remote yet just 5 minutes away from Dock Square makes it the perfect getaway. Harriet and Lily, the lab, are perfect hosts!
The charming Bufflehead Cove Inn is nestled on a beautiful tidal river just minutes from the picturesgue town of Kennebunkport. Innkeepers Jim and Harriet Gott are absolutely delightful people who maintain a warm and friendly atmosphere and impecable accommodations. From the cosy River Room to the romantic Hideaway Suite, there are rooms to suit all tastes and budgets and over the past years we have stayed in all of them. Each morning a sumptuous breakfast is prepared by Jim then served with a beautiful smile by Harriet, and (weather permitting) it is often taken on the spacious porch overlooking the tidal river. We have watched ducks, cormorants and herons feeding there while we ate. If you are searching for that perfect beach, shop, or restaurant, Harriet is always available to advise guests, and in the surrounding area there is something for everyone, whether it's sunbathing, outlet shopping, reading and relaxing, fishing, or whale watching. We just spent six days at the Inn in a week of pouring rain and yet we never failed to find something to enjoy. We met some fascinating people from North America, England and Canada and made several new friends. The Bufflehead Cove Inn is indeed a little paradise, but I'm beginning to wish I hadn't told you about it so that there will always be a room there for me!
The best inn ever!
Buffleahead Cove is magic! Like all magic, we are not always aware of how it happened, just that it did. From the minute you walk in the door at Bufflehead Cove, you feel your entire body begin to relax. Is it the paint color of the living room or the fabulous view of the river from the front window? Is it Harriet's warm personality or the smell of Jim's cooking? Or could it be the incredibly decorated guest rooms? Whatever causes that magic, I know that we have just accepted it. Harriet and Jim at Bufflehead Cove have created the best inn of all time. In over six visits to the inn, I am barely arriving and I am already trying to determine when I can next return.
My husband and I discovered this very special bed and breakfast many years ago and have made it a regular event in our summers. Located on the Kennebunk River, this beautiful sea captain's Victorian home is a piece of New England at its best. From the moment you step onto the long veranda looking out at the Kennebunk River you feel as if you have stepped back in time to a period of history when Kennebunkport was a major shipbuilding community.
Absolutely my favorite country inn, and I've stayed in at least 100. It's a century-old farmhouse on a private lane by the banks of the Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport, Southern Maine. What makes it so special? Just about everything. Start with the riverside location, where you can see the tide roll in and out, add a forest right behind the large back yard, and the Bufflehead ducks and other creatures that "cruise" up and down the river. Location, location, location! I can easily say that Harriet and Jim's full breakfasts are among the most delicious -- and definitely the most creative -- I've enjoyed anywhere. And, they're experts on dining in the area, which includes many excellent restaurants in all price categories. More gracious, caring hosts will not be found anywhere you go.
Bufflehead Cove Inn, Kennepunkport Maine is certainly a private little piece of heaven. Located on a tidal river in a secluded cove, you are just a step away from the Old 'Port.
My husband and I stayed with Harriet and Jim Gott, and of course, Lily, the beautiful black Lab, Inn- keepers at Bufflehead Cove Inn, in Kennebunkport, Me.
We like B&Bs, and we like Maine, so we spent a couple of summers going up and down the coast of Maine to find the perfect places for repeat summer visits. The Inn at Bufflehead Cove is our clear first choice out of the many we visited-and we're VERY picky about where we stay! It's a wonderful place-a lovely spot on the water, well-decorated and very comfortable public and guest rooms, memorable mouth-watering breakfasts, warm and terrifically helpful innkeepers-tops on all dimensions. Kennebunkport is a nifty little town with lots to see and do, plenty of good restaurants and good places to walk and drive. We travel a lot on business, we've stayed in many hotels and B&Bs around the world-and this is our absolute favorite place. We return every year (as do many others--LOTS of repeat guests, one of the best signs)--and it's always a pleasure.
Loved every second
My fiance and I stayed in the Hideaway Suite for 5 nights and 4 days.
It was hands down the best room of any sort that we have stayed in.
From the big, comfy king size bed to the jacuzzi tub for 2 with the complimentary champagne, to the warm gas powered fireplace, everything was magnificent.
We had a Bose Wave Radio to listen to, 2 personal bathrobes to use and a full size glassed in shower.
The decor and ambience were top notch. The service was 5 star. The full course breakfest meals were wonderful and delicious. Ours views the river were great as was the forest all around use.
Overall one of the most relaxing times you could have and have it in luxury.
