Happy MMXIV!


Happy New Year and welcome to 2014…  We wish you much health, happiness and joy in the coming months.  Thank you to all of our wonderful guests who have stayed with us at our Eastern Shore, Maryland bed and breakfast this past year.  We really do appreciate that you choose to spend your precious free time with us.


You’ve got to love Wikipedia.   Just on a whim I typed in the search box “2014”, not expecting anything, really.  I had no idea that so much thought went into the definition of a year:

 “2014 (MMXIV) will be a common year starting on Wednesday…..of the Gregorian calendar, the 2014th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 14th year of the 3rd millennium, the 14th year of the 21st century, and the 5th year of the 2010s decade.”

Well.  Isn’t that something?  By the way, did you know that a “common year” simply means a year with 365 days, or not a leap year.   It’s only 3 days into the year and we’ve all learned something already!

2013 was a momentous year for the Hanscom family here at the Brampton Inn.  Youngest daughter Simone got married, sister Sophie got engaged to be married this year, oldest daughter Jenny had her second baby, and number one son Lucas moved back east to help with our Eastern Shore, Maryland bed and breakfast.


2014 will bring some changes to the inn.   A while back we mentioned on Facebook that the Brampton was getting a little nip and tuck.  Well, we (and by “we”, we mostly mean Michael) have replaced a jetted tub in the Sunset Room bath and upgraded to larger flat screen TVs in many of the rooms.  Repaired and replaced the slightly sagging ceiling in the den (also known as the cookie room).  The Yellow Room‘s ceiling also needed some attention.  The bathrooms in the Fairy Hill Suite and Sophie’s Suite have gotten upgraded rain-shower  shower-heads.

But the biggest change to come is an update to the Red Room, with a new bathroom, a slightly different layout, and a new lounging area with a large flat screen tv.

Always moving forward here at our Eastern Shore, Maryland bed and breakfast…just like the millennia!  We will be sure to keep you posted on the progress.
