If you are like many of our fractional share owners, you like to get out and about in the summertime. Perhaps try something new this year and set out on a culinary adventure – breakfast, lunch and dinner in three very different locations – all in one fabulous day. Since your Pilatus PC-12 can land on runways as short as 2,500 feet, paved and unpaved, this is not just a writer’s pipe dream.
The Mill House Inn in East Hampton, Long Island, for instance, is a short hop from Boston, New York and the surrounding areas. It has been written up time and again as a wonderful bed & breakfast with the best breakfast in East Hampton. Zagat placed it on its list of “Top 50 Small Hotels” in the U.S. Travel & Leisure named it the “Inn of the Month.” One blogger we spotted described a “relaxed elegance and luxury” which, when combined with everything East Hampton has to offer, makes the Mill House Inn a compelling starting and end point for this adventure. But, there is one catch with breakfast at the Mill House Inn -- it only comes with a wonderful night of rest.
After breakfast, we can fly you right out of East Hampton and up the beautiful New England coastline to Rockland, Maine. You may have had lobster before, but probably not like Lynn Archer’s famous “King of Clubs” lobster club sandwich at The Brass Compass Café. It’s simple, classic and all about the lobster. In a “Throwdown” with Bobby Flay of the Food Network, Lynn came away victorious. To us, that is enough of a reason to consider making this trip up the coast.
For dinner, we invite you to stop by Block Island before returning to the Mill House Inn. We think it is the perfect way to wind down. Fly into the island’s own airport, head to The National Hotel in the heart of Old Harbor, kick back on its giant wrap-around porch, and drink in those breathtaking views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. And, while you’re sitting on that giant porch, you can enjoy a thick, juicy filet mignon and a glass of red wine at the Tap & Grille to chase the “King of Clubs”.
All that is left now is to sit back in the spacious cabin of your PC-12 and hop down to the Mill House Inn, that cozy bed & breakfast in East Hampton. Waking up to the local beaches the next morning is the ultimate way to top off this wonderful day.
