There for a little while, the sun started to shine and warm the earth. We even started getting the front patio ready for guests. But then, Mother Nature decided that we needed a little cooling off. So she sent us some snow and some rain and some wind. Since we can not be outside getting things ready for guests, we decided that we needed to do a little “spring cleaning” around the Mill.
Our Spring Cleaning involves a lot of hard work and long hours. One of the things that comes with spring cleaning is of course a visit from the local health inspector. We are proud to report that this year the Health Inspector gave us a score of 100! Over the past month we have been shampooing the carpets, flipping mattress and all that good stuff that helps us to maintain the rooms in new condition. We have also added some new shelving in the rooms. As you can see in the picture to the left, many of our rooms and suites have new shelves over the coffee and microwave station.
We are also excited about continuing our relationship with Essence of Lanesboro. Last year we worked with Peter C. Bilkey, Ph.D, owner of Essence to develop a scent specific and unique to Stone Mill. After many long sniffing sessions, we finally came back to the combination that we started with… “Suites Scent with Juniper”. Here at Stone Mill, it was important that we created a scent that was light, refreshing, did not contrast with personal cologne or perfume and one that gentlemen did not mind using either.
Hope you enjoy these little “spring cleaning” touches when you come for your next visit with Stone Mill!
