The 3 Keys to Real Estate

October 29th, 2010 by Eben Viens

#1 Location. #2 Location. #3 Location.  Somethings never change, and this old adage is just as true today as it was years ago. The phrase that has become a real estate mantra may have first been coined in 1926 in an ad in the Chicago Tribune expounding the virtues of properties located in Rogers Park. […]

Eastport…Downeast Maine’s Must See Destination!

September 18th, 2009 by Eben Viens

One of the joys of being part of The B&B Team is the opportunity we have to work with great Innkeepers at great Inns in great locations.  Many of the locations are in well known ‘destination locations’ and some are in less known ‘undiscovered’ locales.  Eastport, Maine is a small town on an island accessible by a causeway and […]

Fine Wine, Smart Ploys, and Bookings

April 27th, 2009 by Peter Scherman

Wine and travel go hand-in-hand. For those of us who love a good bottle of our favorite (or maybe an undiscovered favorite!) wine, no journey or evening meal are complete without a glass of the nectar of the gods. So it comes as no surprise that many of your guests also love a great bottle of […]
