"You're on the Front Page of the Internet."

While we were very pleased to see that our Fall Foliage Surf and Turf package had been written up in Smarter Travel, we hadn't seen many bookings, so far. But that all changed last Sunday morning!

The phone began to ring while we were still preparing breakfast - before 8:00 a.m.! The first caller was a woman who asked about the Fall Foliage package. We gave her the information, and she promised to call back. A few minutes later another woman was asking similar questions. We asked where she had seen the package and she said, "You're on the front page of the internet today." Okay, we weren't exactly sure what she meant by that, but it sounded exciting!

The third caller made it clearer. We were on the front page of Yahoo!.

Because it seems Yahoo! tailors material for regional audiences, we couldn't find the article, at first. After a bit of digging, it appears that Yahoo! had re-printed the Smarter Travel article on Fall Foliage getaways in the Yahoo! Travel section, and a headline and teaser had appeared on the front page. You can view the article here.

We were thrilled that the phone continued to ring throughout the day and into the evening. By nightfall we had booked nearly all the remaining weekend nights with the "Surf and Turf" package. At this writing (September 19), we do have a few rooms the weekends of the 10th and 11th, the 17th and 18th, and the 24th and 25th of October, and the 31st of October and 1st of November, and we also have quite a bit of space available if you can come between Sunday and Thursday.

In addition to the foliage tour, two-hour schooner cruise, Freeport shopping spree, restaurant and gasoline gift cards, the package includes two nights at Brewster House. If the package isn't quite what you had in mind, contact us! We will try to come up with a combination that is just your style!
