Greetings from Gordon and Jean at Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast,
Gordon and I are wishing you all a Happy Spring. At the moment it is time for us to start “gearing”up for the arrival of our B+B guests, trying new recipes, washing windows and spring cleaning the house and yard! We want everything to be perfect for you, our best guests!
We to let you know of the improvements we have made in the Nantucket cottage to make that popular, cozy space even nicer for a 3-6 night stay, or for a weekly stay this summer. Some of you already have made your reservations, we know, and we want you to be aware of the improvements before you arrive. If you have not made a reservation yet, we hope that Fort Hill B+B will be in your vacation plans this year if you are able to sneak away to Cape Cod!
*The cottage is now air conditioned with the installation of 2 powerful, whisper quiet, ductless units installed in the bedroom and the living room. Each indoor unit has its own thermostat and operates so efficiently and quietly that you will never want to leave! We hope these additions will make your stay in the cottage during the increasingly hot, humid summers more comfortable.
*The Kitchen can now live up to its name as a place to prepare an entire meal....not just breakfast or a snack! Once the weather breaks I will be planting some herbs by the cottage door so you can help yourself! And of course, the organic veggie garden is aways just a few steps away.
*New for 2016 is the addition of a butcher block island with an induction burner and pots and pans....perfect for boiling, sauteing and simmering! The pull up table under the windows has been outfitted with stools for dining. Or, the table in the living room and the outdoor table give a couple of other options for an eat-in meal.
*In addition to the existing microwave drip coffee maker and refrigerator, the kitchen now also boasts a convection toaster-oven and Keurig coffee maker. We will provide a few starter k-cups with a variety of flavored coffees for the Keurig and encourage guests to use the refillable single cup holder with their own favorite coffee.
If there is anything else you can think of that would make your stay in the cottage more comfortable we would love to know. In the meantime, we will be posting pictures on our Facebook page which you should all be able to access.
Stay well. We hope to see you soon!
