 It turns out you don’t have to ski to enjoy a winter visit to Sugarloaf.

                Watching the cars full of skiers pile into the parking lots on Saturday morning, I was very happy we’d arrived at the Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel on Friday afternoon for a weekend of fun. Our car was parked, we’d already enjoyed a great evening at the Shipyard Brew Haus, and we had a day planned that included snowshoeing, a tour of the mountain’s shops, and relaxation in the hotel’s amazing and huge outdoor hot tub, plus dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, 45 North.

 

One Stanley Avenue offers an elegant step back in time

I still remember a very special dining experience we had at One Stanley Avenue fifteen or twenty years ago. Chef and owner Dan Davis, who lives with his wife Susan upstairs at One Stanley, has poured his life into this historic building that includes his impressive collection of stained glass in the windows and walls.

                For dinner, our server Tammy seated us in "the Arch" in the first of two intimate dining rooms. Tammy owns a preschool center in Phillips so she and I had a lot to talk about. The tin ceilings in this room are very intricate. Bathed in rose pink, the rooms are romantically lit with candles on the tables and quiet music in the background. One look around and you know you are in for a special meal here.

The Travelin Maine(rs) Target Tuscany

 The Travelin Maine(rs) love to travel inside and outside Maine, and now, they’ll be telling you about their out-of-state journeys from Tuscany to Texas.

 

George

                The pace of life in Italy’s Tuscany Region brings us back often. This is not “slow travel.” This is slow living.

                Italians shop daily for food, focusing on fresh produce, pasta, meats, and cheeses. The country shuts down for 3 hours every afternoon for a leisurely lunch, nap, and relaxation. The evening meal doesn’t begin until 7:30 pm or later and lasts for hours.
