Thank you for an unforgettable weekend. Everything from the room to the food to the treatments – was exquisite. You have impeccable taste in food and comfort. My mother and I had a fabulous time and feel refreshed and renewed. Your warmth, kindness and oenness were refreshing and lovely. We hope to return at least once a year and wish you all the luck in the world to make Kismet Inn the success it already is! We loved the exfoliation, the jams, cookies and sweet potatoes – and the tea!

P.S., there are too many things to enumerate that we loved!

P.S. The graduation dinner was more than we expected – over the top!
The Memorial Day Weekend of 2010 is a very special weekend at the Kismet Inn bed and breakfast in Bath, Maine. All five guest rooms are booked by two different families that have been coming to the inn for the past three years. One is Chance family whose daughter is graduating from ‘Hyde School’ an excellent boarding school here in Bath, midcoast, Maine. The other one in Ward Family whose daughter will be graduating from ‘Bowdoin College’ in Brunswick, Maine.
The Chance family will be having dinner on Friday night, seven of them. I plan to start the preparation of the food tomorrow and start cooking early on Friday night. I plan to make a few number of different dishes, serve 5 kinds of cheese from ‘Appleton Creamery’ 2 different kinds of appetizer, 2 kinds of entree, rhubarb pie for desert with gelato from ‘Finasco Gelato’ in Brunswick, Maine.
I have been busy gardening every day here at the Kismet Inn Bed and Breakfast. It has been a simple joy. The garden beds are beginning to take shape now after four years. When my husband bought the house for me in 2004 I could not do anything in the gardens because a major renovation was to take place to transform the property into a wellness, retreat center.
I am a big believe of building up on things, never rushing into anything so after talking to a few landscapers I decided to do it myself. In 2006 my daughter had returned from a year and half’s travel through central and south America with her then boyfriend. They were the ones who actually started the garden beds, her boyfriend did a great job of creating a rock garden. They set it up telling me it will take me sometime to actually build up the garden grounds. They were right.
To start with I bought about 10 yards of really good compost from Estabrooks Nursery in Yarmouth, Maine, cleared up all the construction debris, built 4 beds and cut down a few trees to make space for vegetable garden. After four years I have come to the decision that lilacs are going to be around the fence where the vegetable garden is. Today, I cleared the weeds, turned the soil and planted two lilacs, I had planted one couple of years ago and need 6 more to complete it. It will take a while but I will get it done!
