The Year in Numbers- 2011

Once again delving into the esoterica of numbers at a B&B! (Keeping track? Here's a link to 2010's numbers.)

  • Best year ever! Thank you all for considering White Cedar Inn when you travel in Maine!
  • Longest stay- 8 nights.
  • Pounds of blueberries used- 37! That includes the frozen berries from Wymans and the fresh berries from the farmers markets.
  • Number of years the inn has been open- 25!
  • Maple syrup we got from tapping the trees in the front yard- 1 gallon.
  • Number of days in a row we had guests in the house- 128. (We had to stop to replace the boiler and hot water tank.)
  • New breakfast recipes we tried- bacon-cheddar pinwheels, 3-bite apple turnovers and lemon cake with blueberry sauce.
  • Recipes that failed- bacon cupcakes (too sweet) and apple & brie crostini (too soggy).
  • Who came from the farthest away? Australia wins again! Second place goes to Hong Kong with honorable mention going to South Africa!

  1. US- 88%
  2. Canada- 6%
