2018 Spring Work Weekend accommodations
« on: October 08, 2017, 12:16:26 AM »
My wife took the liberty of approaching both The Cod Cove Inn and The Sheepscot Harbor Village and Resort about their accommodations for museum spring work weekend attendees from away since the Wiscasset Woods Motel will not be open at that time in spring 2018.
Cod Cove Inn - 1-800-882-9586 or 1-207-882-9586; 1 queen room - $139.00/night, 2 queen $149.00/night, 1 king $159.00/night all before 10% discount for the museum but you must ask for the discount. Continental breakfast included. 19 rooms left as of 10/7 at 7:30 pm.
Sheepscot Harbor Village and Resort - 1-207-882-4200; 1 queen $139.00/night, they do give military discounts, person on desk did not have authority to comment on discounts for museum members - maybe/maybe not.

Hope this info helps others to find rooms spring 2018.

This is an update on my previous post regarding accommodations for the Spring Work Weekend. My wife made repeated attempts to contact the Edgecomb Inn regarding a deal or deals that could be made for museum members/visitors who needed a place to stay during the SWW. The Edgecomb Inn has not responded to her repeated attempts. If anyone chooses to use the Inn and manages to strike a deal perhaps they could share that information here for others who may need a place to stay in the spring.

There are a few options on "AirBnB".
For the FWW, I stayed with a family in Wiscasset, right on 27 about 5 miles from the railroad. They have two rooms (front to back) one with a single bed, one with a double. They do have two young boys, but if you can deal with that, it's a place to stay for ~$70/night.

Judy Fossel also rents her converted barn on AirBnB. It appears that it would require a larger group to go in on it together.
