Our First Guests Return to the Maine Stay

It was a little over 4 years ago now, Janice and I returned from our lawyers office having just signed the paperwork for what was, and still is, the largest purchase of our lifetimes. When we walked into the building that was to become our new lifestyle, our very first guests were checking in.

Kathy and Terry Kovacs had come to the Kennebunkport Maine Stay Inn for a little getaway. Boy are we lucky to have had such nice people as our first guests. Later that evening they brought us a bottle of Champagne to celebrate our new life. In hindsight, it was clearly an omen of things to come. Kathy and Terry were the first of so many wonderful people we have been fortunate to have met as the innkeepers of the Kennebunkport Maine Stay Inn.

That first year the Kovacs' visited and then again the next year, they spoke of Kathy's long time desire to open her own needlepoint shop. It was clearly something they had both spent time pondering.

The following year, Spring of 2004, we didn't hear from Kathy and Terry. Well, as we later learned, Kathy did fulfill that ambition. In 2004, she opened and continues to run her very succesful shop, THE WOODEN NEEDLE.

Specializing in Cross Stitch and Needlepoint, Kathy's shop is on Route 100 in Waterbury Center, Vermont. If you are in the area stop by and say hello. If you need supplies call her at (802) 241-4149 or send her an email at kkovacs@koventusa.com

It's true, here at the Maine Stay Inn, "we have the nicest guests."

Check back, we will have a picture posted soon.
