One Christmas Eve in the early 1600's, explorer Captain John Smith
anchored in "Christmas Cove". The name stuck and Christmas Cove has
been a snug home port for cruising yachts and watercraft ever since. Now it has
become the "snug harbor" for our new Unique Yankee Inn.

into an art form...an art form guaranteed to create lasting memories of your Maine
holiday. Disarmingly charming, Cheryl treats you to warmth and love. Each room's
warmth is enhanced with eclectic art and memorabilia gathered from a lifetime
of world travels.

Only 70 miles north of Portland, Maine, is a charming island place near Boothbay Harbor in Johns Bay called Christmas Cove. There are 4,613 islands off the coast of this northern New England state, many quite small and remote, where one feels a world away from the mainland. Rutherford Island is home to Christmas Cove, Maine, 04568, population fewer than 900, a rural fishing town of remote beauty with three nature preserves.
Residents share this peaceful cove with seals, mallards and osprey. The town is said to owe its name to a Christmas Day visit here by Captain John Smith who dropped anchor when exploring the area in 1614. Today, Christmas Cove is popular with families from the Northeast who make this their tranquil summer getaway in boathouses, cottages, and other waterfront retreats.
A site of interest nearby is the Thompson Ice House , demonstrating the traditional craft of ice harvesting and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Another listed historic site is nearby in South Bristol , the colonial Old Walpole Meetinghouse , dating from 1772. Osier's Wharf is widely known as one of the best places in Maine to gas up the boat and sample a delicious fresh lobster roll sandwich. Coveside Restaurant & Marina is another popular spot serving three meals a day. Most people arrive by boat. If you cannot make it in person, cold water premium live lobsters can be ordered online and shipped home by local lobstermen.
The place to stay is family-friendly, pet-friendly Unique Yankee of Maine Inn , with gorgeous views from one of the highest points around, where eagles soar above in clear and cold blue skies.
The Unique Yankee Art Gallery
The Unique Yankee Of Maine Inn is preparing for the display of art within the establishment. Soon will be the display of unique art from world travels. On the left side navigation bar is a thumbnail image of one of the newest acquisitions available to the guest of the Inn for viewing.
As you requested, I have prepared a small write up regarding the creation of "Speechless" for you.
As far as my resume goes, I feel like Emily Dickenson, "I am nobody, who are you?" Perhaps in the future, I will feel comfortable expanding on that premise. For now, I am quite content and grateful that our destinies came together and that you saw in "Speechless" something that touched your heart, which you eagerly opened to help others.
I consider you a new friend. An idealist, a humanitarian, and a "rebel without a pause." We are indeed kindred spirits. Thank you for your kind support. I will see you soon.
