To have a bit of fun and help guests learn a little bit more about the area, I decided to name each room on the second level of the hostel after a local landmark. With only five bedrooms, I thought it would be a friendly and memorable way to differentiate the rooms. Using wooden plaques from the local craft or dollar store, it is an easy and inexpensive way of personalizing the hostel. I picked up some stain, white paint, basic stencils, and voilà! Bathroom - "Old Man's Pond"/Private Rooms - "Heart's Content" & "Sweet Bay"/Dorms - "Merrymeeting Pond", "Plum Point" & "The Flats"
