Beginning Our 25th Season at Tuck Inn Rockport
SEE MORE PICTURES HERE
Twenty-five years ago July, our lives forever changed. We were happily living in Lynn in a house that was finally comfy and cozy for our little family of five. Scott casually announced that his friend and our best man had found an inn for sale in Rockport. With nothing to lose we set off one Sunday and walked through this foreclosed, decrepit leaky-roofed ark of a house reminding me of the house in "It’s a Wonderful Life".
Next the parents took a look. Viv and Burt thought it could work while Mary and Bob left without saying a word, not even good-bye Liz. Our three children were at a good age for a move with our oldest about to enter high school, so that was in our favor. For a month we lost a lot of sleep thinking and worrying, but by August we worked up our courage to sign a P & S and give notice to Scott’s employer. Leaving an unfulfilling job with no appreciation or recognition for a job well done made this an easier decision for Scott.
By October we had passed papers and for the next eight months contractors and a myriad of workmen worked their magic and brought the historic Tuck Inn opened in 1948 back to life. We were ready to welcome our first guests in May, 1992. The role that our family played cannot go unmentioned. Our parents, family and friends stood by us, helped in so many ways and we are eternally grateful for their love and support.
Our closing comment is this - Aim high, take chances and follow your dreams. We have never looked back!
