... but not at a stand still like it was last year. We will be making a rest stop soon for coffee and snacks, as we will not be having a dinner stop. It was decided to carry on to the hotel in Portland, and everyone can either eat at one of the nearby restaurants there or order in pizza. I think we will be ordering in, as our morning wake up call will be once again at 5:30 as the bus leaves at 7:00 for home. It wouldn't be so bad, except the clocks go ahead one hour tonight ...
Sorry, I'm afraid, for now, this blog ends here. The past few days have brought: 1) geocaching: very fun and interesting, 2) Sherlock (the one with Martin Freeman): my friends have been trying to get me to watch it forever, now that I have I'm in love it!!, 3) started reading Til We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis. I may return, I may not, I'm too tired to ...
... indeed? God is all powerful and all loving. The Creator, God is the universe loves me enough to use all His power to protect me and make me prosper through Him. But this is not a privilege exclusively for me. No! This is for everyone, all of you out there. God holds the same love for you and similarly will protect you and make you prosperous through Him. If nothing else, remember this, God loves ...
... I love him too. He is too good to me and I can't get over it. Just as I can't believe how much my father on earth loves me, I can't believe how much my Father in Heaven loves me. This is Christmas; a show of our love for one another to reflect God's love for us. We celebrate on this day that God sent his Son Jesus to earth, all because of his great great love for us. Thank you Lord for this gift of a child, Jesus, the Savior of the ...
Although the past few days have been quite relaxing, my quest has fallen to the way side a bit. I have not been reading my Bible, only some of a Christian novel, but mostly listening to The Lord of the Rings on audiobook. I think I need to begin my day right tomorrow, with a devotion and prayer. Now that Christmas presents are wrapped, I can find other productive uses of times. Reading and writing, research and studying. Not for school per-say, but for me. Need to pray too, I really ...

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.
