Foodie Weekend Jan. 22nd & 23rd

Foodies, Foodies, Foodies:  You know who you are.  You’re one of us!  Portland has been recognized as one of the best small cities in the country for dining.  And, it’s a great place to get away for a simple weekend.  Wouldn’t it be great to get away to dine and stay at an historic Inn?

On Jan. 22nd  & 23rd The Elms is hosting ‘Foodies Weekend’.


You will arrive Friday, and Friday night you will be treated to  a classic New England Lobster Bake.  Steamed Maine lobsters, clams, corn on the cob, backed potato w/ sea salt, salad, blueberry cake.  Maybe a little simple for the refined pallet …… but its Maine Lobster Folks!  We just have to get that out of the way.  Saturday morning you’ll have Breakfast prepared by chief Matt Pekins or go explore one of Portland’s renowned breakfast haunts.  At noon there will be a cooking class by one of Portland Restaurateurs.

The real fun starts Saturday afternoon.  Shopping!  Saturday night you get to, with the other guest, to prepare your own collective meal!  Yes that right.  Your Foodies get to do your own cooking in our own commercial kitchen.  Sharing camaraderie, cooking ideas, tips and secretes while building friends and a terrific meal!  But let me back up.  First we’ll go shopping at The Cheese Iron, the wine vineyard, and Portland niche specialty food stores.  Maybe we’ll take the scenic routes without getting too touristy.  Then back to the Inn.  It’s time to start cooking……no one said the wine had to wait to dinner time.   The Elms dinner table seats up to 18 family style comfortably.  Relax and dine, on the delicious meal you have just had a blast preparing.

Sunday morning, sleep in.  Snore off those calories.  Breakfast will range from coffee, muffin and fresh fruit, or add eggs Benedict, fried potatoes, juice, & yogurt.

Rooms will go from $79 to $160/ night.  The foodie package adds just $ 30/ person.
