Staying Green in a Craftsman B&B

Ogunquit Beach Inn is a four square 1926 craftsman Bed & Breakfast. Mike & Greg bought the Inn in 1997, and there were many challenges with updating and re-modelling. All the windows were replaced with eco-friendly double pane, windows that allow natural light and keep out ultra violet rays.
The yellow plastic siding was replaced with wood clapboard and a eco-friendly stain was used.

Many rooms have the original hardwood floors that were restored with period oriental rugs.

Lighting was replaced with energy effecient lightbulbs. We also participate in the "Clynk" recycle program. This past winter, we traded the Jeep SUV, and got a Subaru Forester. I think the Subaru just makes more sense!
