Wilson Pond Camps on Lower Wilson Pond, Greenville

I wasn't able to make it back up to the Moosehead region this fall for the foliage so I reposted the photos this morning to live virtually through my own photos! This is Wilson Pond Camps on Lower Wilson Pond in Greenville. I admit I didn't know of Wilson Pond until I listed this property; it is one of the most spectacular lakes I've seen in all of Maine. The mountains are dramatic and the lake is beautiful...

Social Media and the Real Estate Agent, Innkeeper, Aspiring Innkeeper...

Our annual Maine Association of Realtors convention is this coming week in Bar Harbor. I'm honored to have been asked to speak on a panel at one of the classes on Social Media entitled "Communicate for Success". Many of my sellers, future inn buyers and colleagues are already on board and understand the benefits. It will be a great opportunity for me to share what I've learned with others and exchange thoughts and ideas as well.




For aspiring innkeepers, it might be fun and educational to start a blog on your property search, to serve as a journal, which could one day lead into your inn's blog once you find the property for you! Just something to keep in mind...sometimes the journey is as interesting as the adventure itself...
