Thanks to all of our guests, both old and new who came to stay with us during December and January. It was a pleasure to see old friends again and meet new, lovely people.
We were pleased to welcome Fredi and Federica from Italy for their 5th stay with us! We are also pleased to announce that we have our first engagement. Our lovely guests Mark and Jody have informed us that they are to be married. We are so thrilled, because we remember them when they first got together at our beloved Hut Pointe Inn! We wish them much happiness in their next chapter.
The spring is a busy time for us, we have been working hard on the inn, doing lots of maintenance and still cleaning up odds and ends from Hurricane Irene, but we feel good about how everything looks now. We have installed solar panels on our house and are pleased to tell you that Sundowner is now officially “off the grid”. We also have our utility room “off the grid” and we are excited to see our bills (or lack thereof) from BEC, especially, since they raised rates again. We are looking forward to replacing our hot water solar panel that was damaged in the hurricane...the crane is coming to put it up in 2 weeks!
We have had some positive response to the Eco-Products that we brought to the island and we are hopeful that we can all start using these products for take out and to-go items and lessen our use of plastics and styrofoam.
