Welcome to the Country Club Inn in Rangeley, Maine!
Six millionaire sportsmen built a private lodge and 9-hole golf course in the 1920’s. They located it on a 2000’ promontory, with massive fireplaces and 360 degree views of the lake and mountains. In 1950, twenty guest rooms and the dining room were added and the golf course was sold off separately.
It was turned into an 18-hole public course, with the first tee still just being steps away from the Inn.
In 1975 Bob & Sue Crory purchased the property and named it the Country Club Inn. They use their many years of Innkeeping experience to make it a sophisticated little resort catering to only 40 guests desiring casual luxury, tranquility and warm hospitality. They raised their children at the Inn, and in 1995, their daughter Margie and husband Steve Jamison purchased the Inn. To this day, Margie & Steve are now raising their family at this Inn, and are continuing to carry on that special magic that Bob and Sue Crory created.And we are are here in this beautiful space in the most wonderful time of the year with 20 quilters for a fabulous scrappy weekend retreat!

Quilters were set to arrive at noon, so we headed over to the Inn around 9am to do all of the finishing touches so all was ready. Little touches mean a lot! We are set up in what is the normal dining area of the inn, and changing the “mood lighting” light bulbs out and changing them to 100 watt brighter bulbs makes for happy campers and easier seeing when cutting and sewing.

THIS, my friends, is Autumn Bliss!
