  • International Thanksgiving Success

    We decided to rent this spacious and well-equipped home on Bailey’s Island 28 miles from our own small Maine house to help us accommodate an international crowd for Thanksgiving — the French and Turkish families of our children’s spouses. It was pretty much perfect.

    Spacious bedrooms, each with a private bath, great for when people needed a break from family in three languages. A wonderfully organized and well-equipped kitchen around which any number of experienced cooks could comfortably work together. (We had a Thanksgiving feast one night; Turkish food the next; foie gras, oysters, and lobsters the third. Yum!) A giant L-shaped living space bringing kitchen, dining, and living room together so that our one-year old grandson could happily run around under the adoring eyes of all of his grandparents and most of his aunts and uncles.

    And a very fancy entertainment system below that allowed the serious football fans to stream an un-televised NFL game from a laptop to the giant screen one night and blast the house with a cranked-up Avatar another. We spent day-times walking all around Bailey Island and enjoying the views from everywhere in the house. Oh – and the sunsets were to die for. ‘Nuff said.
