You HAVE, I hope, made the mandatory trek to the top of Hacker’s Hill on Quaker Ridge while you are visiting Migis? Not to be missed, this Casco gem offers a 360 degree view of our immediate neighborhood, and towns, lakes, forest and mountains for miles around. In addition to the look at the surrounding beauty, this wonderful retreat gives those of us who work for you a sense of perspective.
This week our third annual Migis Hotel Group meeting was held here, and our guest was Kevin Hancock, president of Maine’s Hancock Lumber. The similarities between our two businesses may not leap to mind instantly. We are selling hotel rooms and meals and relaxation; experiences, really. Hancock is selling wood products (Eastern White Pine in particular) and home improvements, tangible and solid. But another look, especially from atop Hacker’s Hill with all that forest and lake in view, brings to mind that we are all striving to bring you a bit of the essence of Maine…at Migis and our growing family of managed resort properties we seek to bring you a ‘natural, refreshing, peaceful, attentive, responsive, detailed, relationship oriented’ place to steal away to rest (thank you, Kevin!) for almost 100 years, while the Hancock family has been delivering a reliable and consistent product with most of the same qualities from their business (6 generations in the same family…wow) since 1848.
We strive, like the folks at Hancock, to be stewards in our area, because we are offering, after all, to showcase what was here long before we were; nature’s bounty in the forest, Sebago Lake, and the ocean, in all their constancy and change.
This year’s MHG Achievement Award winners exemplify the creativity, thought, devotion and dedication we seek to bring to our businesses. Familiar faces to many of you! Amy Kronenthal, Maddy Abbot, Joan LeClerc and Charity Catruch.
We really enjoyed getting together with our co-workers, some new on board, and some going back almost thirty years! Happy to be back by the water, walking the property in the emerging greenery and welcome sunshine, having an excellent meal (and a few laughs!), participating in team building activities, sharpening our collective goals and the practices we bring to them…all with you and your Maine vacation experience as our common bond. Does it look like we enjoy our work?
