Arcadia Daze


This weekend, the famous Arcadia Daze will take place.
Where ?   Ummmm…in Arcadia 😛
You remember, I wrote about Arcadia down on M-22  in my early blogger days in May.

Arcadia Daze brings visitors from far and wide and much like during the Frankfort Art Fair, people are scrambling to get a room.  Why I don’t raise my prices for special days is a good question.  Everyone else does it.  Anyway, I am always amazed how prospective guests call and quiz me about the prices and ammenities and then they are asking about a specific cottage, all the while I am thinking, “it doesn’t really matter how much the room rents for or what it looks like, you cannot rent ANY room for ANY money this weekend at the Wayfarer”.

I have a big turnover tomorrow and I bet the phone will not stop ringing because hundreds that wanted to participate in Arcadia Daze cannot find a room.
Here is a link to some photos of Arcadia Daze gone by and of the Scottville Clown Band,  just looking at these photos makes me snort my martini – they are a hoot and well worth the trip down to Manistee County!

So remember for next year and try and be here for the fun

    Dear Mrs. Wayfarer,

    I want to rent your best cottage for this weekend when I attend Arcadia Daze. It has to be the best, one, with the best view, the best bed, the best bathroom, the best lawn chairs, the best flower boxes, etc. I know you’ll be happy to accomodate me.

    Yours truly,

    A Guest

    • Dear Mrs.Guest,
      Let me just make clear that this reservation is for July 25-27, 2010.
      Money is due on arrival. Please save your pennies until then.
      Thank you!
      Iris Wayfarer

        Dear Mrs. Wayfarer,

        No, you misunderstand me. I’ll be there at 6 p.m. tonight. If the cottage is not ready, I’ll just stay with you, for which, of course, I do not intend to pay. Naturally, I assume that breakfast will be included.

        Sincerely,

        Mrs. The Guest

        • Rapidly you are turning out to be one of my favorites, Mrs. Guest. I like people with a personality. Yours is definitely INTERESTING :mrgreen:

            Dear Mrs. Wayfarer,

            Well, thank you for the compliment! I certainly am unique! Thank you for noticing.

            As you know by now I decided not to show up – I didn’t think it was necessary to call you. Just hold the cottage for me, in case I change my mind one of these weekends.

            Yours truly,

            The Guest

  3. Maybe should spend a little more time in the garden. I would like some nice veggies with my cocktail on my next visit.
    Thanks Don
