|WHAT OUR GUESTS HAVE TO SAY...|
Since our first guests arrived in August, 2006 we have received some wonderful comments. We are deeply grateful and would like to share them with you.
Dear Christina Shipps,
Hi Christina, We had a glorious time!!! The house is perfect. We were very comfortable, got a fair bit of sledding in, and lots of reading done. I also cooked up a storm. We made bread, and brownies, and puddings, and cakes, and stew and soups. We had lunch out 3 days at different Camps, while sledding. We had a wonderful dinner at Horn of Plenty, and lunch one day in Ft. Kent. We took advantage of the area. It is a very beautiful part of Maine.We went back to Bolin Camp and up to the “Overlook”. Unbelievable!! All in all it was a wonderful winter vacation!
Thanks for everything,
Mountain Glory was "glorious"!! We had spectacular weather...the farm provided a great location for us to explore Baxter State Park - which we'd never been to. We spent two days hiking in there - once accessing the North entrance - very easily...the other from the South entrance...with a little extra reach.
The farm itself is lovely - accommodations are A+... with its tranquility and spacious layout. We met the friendly cattle across the street and they provided our early morning entertainment through the picture window, as we monitored their movements! We enjoyed reading about the farm's history and your future plans for it.
"Re-entry" back to everyday life is always challenging - and particularly on a rainy Monday morning after such a wonderful 4 days off...I think we're all looking forward to another visit to the farmhouse!
How could you have afforded such a complete and tasteful job of renovating and furnishing Mountain Glory Farm? It was the perfect site for our "second honeymoon" following celebration of our 50th anniversary. We saw a lot of Baxter State Park, gazed at Mt. Katahdin from our bedroom window, hiked through your meadows, met the former owner. and had a very pleasant chat with Mimi. WE hope it will not be long before we can return, and will recommend the farm to many others. My wife, Jan, joins me in thanking you for helping to make our anniversary so special..
We had a ball...............it was beautiful and quiet!! We had a great time hiking in Baxter and definitely plan on returning some day.
All our best,
This is just a quick note to say how enjoyable I found my stay this past week at Mountain Glory Farm. There is no question that you, Mimi and others have put a tremendous amount of thought and love into the place; it shows. I spent the week recharging my batteries after the usual hectic summer down along the coast and also revisiting many of my old haunts. As Dick may have told you, I led camping groups in the area for many years in the sixties and early seventies; some things have changed but much remains as I remember it.
I found the accommodations well-laid out and very well maintained. I know how much attention to detail goes in to making such a place hospitable and comfortable. You have done a wonderful job. I must say, however, that were I to return (and the idea of a few days during the snow season is attractive) I think I would select the north unit. Mimi was kind enough to show me though it, and the view from the second floor bedroom with the nice easy chair was pretty spectacular.
The loose-leaf booklet with information both about the farm itself and about the surrounding area was excellent; I read it cover to cover.
Again, many thanks for sharing your beautiful farm with me. And best luck with the venture.
