Make Scrapbooking in 2008 Great!!!! Plan a trip to the Linden Tree Inn in Rockport MA and join in on our 3rd Annual Crop-Port in Rockport!! I am so excited about the scrap retreat here at the Linden Tree Inn this year! We had so much fun the last two years, I can't wait to see what this year will bring! Come and scrap all those Holiday pictures uninterupted with no kids, no needless phone interruptions, and no need to worry about the cooking and cleaning! We try to promote a relaxed, fun, scrapping atmosphere, with lots of good food, friendship and a fab scrapping goodie basket to take home. And don't forget all the scones you can eat for breakast!!!! Arrangements can be made with area spa services for massages, pedicures or manicures. Let us know when you make your reservation if that is something you would be interested in.
This year I have decided to have more days available for the Scrap Retreat. I am going to offer retreat time from January 10th through January 21. Come for any two or more days that fit your schedule. We still have good availablility left for January 11th-17th, and limited availablility from the 17th-22. You will have your own scrap space to set up for the whole time you are here with 24 hour acccess, use of a Sizzix die cutter with at least 10 alphabet sets, and over 100 dies and embossing dies, punches, rubber stamps, and a variety of other tools. The cost for 2 nights is $220, which includes tax, meals, drinks, snacks, your own guest room with private bath, and an awesome goodie basket. Special pricing for extended stays or for adding an extra day or two to your 2 night reservation! Because of our affordable pricing, we do not discount for shared rooms, nor do we assign shared rooms, every scrapper has their own guest room with private bath. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold your place, with the balance due on arrival. On reciept of deposit, you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out regarding any food allergies and preferences for drinks and snacks. If you would like to register, you can post a comment, email us at or give us a call at 1-800-865-2122 or 1-978-546-2494.
So when faced with all those holiday photos that are just begging to be scrapped, make you reservation to come and "Crop-Port in Rockport" this January!!! Bring along a friend or two, or maybe a family member....make it a girl's weekend crop! So take some time for yourself, and make it a getaway to the Linden Tree Inn Scrap Retreat!
And now for some photos from last years retreat:

This evergreen tree was sitting in our backyard, all covered with snow. Once we got started on the deck project, we decided that we are going to clear this space out this spring and cut the tree down. We thought that it was such a lovely shape, wouldn't it make a lovely Christmas tree?Here is a view of the tree from the top deck of the carriage really looks like the perfect tree for our living room! John cuts the tree down, 2 days before Christmas.

Here she is, standing in the living room , all ready to decorate!

All decked out, isn't she a beauty? The boughs were perfect to hang our ornaments from and really show them off. (She does look like she is leaning a bit in this photo, but I think it is the photographer!!)

Lovely In the glow of the lights, this year's tree is the prettiest one ever!!

John and I would like to wish all our Linden Tree Inn guests and friends a very happy holiday time with your family and friends! Peace, Love and Happiness to you all.

Start making your New Years Eve plans for New Years Rockport Eve, A Small Town with a Big Celebration! It's a family friendly celebration, with lots of wonderful entertainment at many of the churchs and public buildings in town. $15 per adult ($6 for children) will get you a button to attend all the festivities going on in town. Check out the New Years Rockport Eve Website for a listing of all the activities planned for this year, there are over 14 venues. With all the fabulous music, storytellers, and activites planned, there is something that will appeal to everyone! Call to make your reservation to stay at the Linden Tree Inn today while we still have good availability. Ring in 2008 in Rockport where there's always a full house here at the Linden Tree!!

Work is coming along nicely on the decks, Roger and Todd are in the final stages. We are hoping they will be completed soon, although Mother Nature has been sending a lot of snow our way, which is certainly slowing the progress down a bit. We are looking forward to warmer weather so we can go shopping for new tables and chairs to put on them! I can't begin to tell you how much of a craftsman Roger is, these decks are going to be gorgeous! We were so fortunate the weather held off just long enough to have all the cement poured and cured before the snow flew!
Here are a couple recent photos of the progress! One huge improvement is the the stairs off the top deck, they will be so easy to walk up and down now compared to the steep angle of our previous stairs! A view looking from the back corner of the Carriage House. Still to come, railings, a privacy screen between the side by side units, and a gate off the second floor decks to access the stairs. It's hard to see the lovely grey and texture of the decking, that is mold and mildew resistant!
Aren't they shaping up nicely?
We hope you enjoy watching the decks take shape!
