Seagull Cottage: The Perfect Place to Propose Marriage!

Question: How does one convince an innkeeper to make a one-night booking?
Answer: Tell such a romantic story that she cannot resist.

Mark called up from New Hampshire and wanted to book one night, mid-week. At first I gave him the run-around, explaining why we don’t do one night. But then he said, “Actually, I’m coming to Wellfleet tonight to propose. Wellfleet is one of my favorite places on earth. We would be arriving around 11 pm because first we need to go to the ocean.”

His only requirement was a soaking tub. Well, we had that.

So, I said YES! The moon was rising over the ocean that night. I mean, how romantic can a man be? This type of thing should only be encouraged.

In the morning Mark dropped by the main house and exclaimed that Aidria had accepted his offer of marriage. Sensible girl!
