Wrapping up the Inn! December 31, 2009
Many a gift was wrapped and unwrapped this holiday season and here at Port Washington Inn, the wrapping has been happening in a grand way as the inn’s old siding is replaced with new and insulation is added to this 100+ year old building.
The first stage of this project began in late August when the remaining original windows were replaced with new energy efficient windows! That was accomplished quickly by a large crew in between busy guest times.
November was the earliest we could allow the siding work to commence since October is a busy guest month here and we didn’t want guests to be negatively impacted by this work. In November and December, we blocked out all midweek dates and many weekends as well. We spent parts of both months visiting family and friends!
As 2010 begins, the siding project is winding down. A final coat of paint will be applied in the spring and then we’ll be eager to get new pictures for our website!
Little did we realize when we purchased the inn 14-1/2 years ago, that a significant part of our accomplishment here would be the careful restoration of the building. It feels good to have seen such a wonderfully designed house through this process so that it can accommodate guests (and the innkeepers!) comfortably and efficiently.
We invite you to come and enjoy the Serenity, Elegance, & Comfort of Port Washington Inn where you will find peaceful privacy and generous hospitality!
