OQUOSSOC — Oquossoc Country Suites opened its doors Friday, July 20 having held an open house July 19 with over 100 locals, business owners, friends and family coming out for the special event. Everyone got to meet the owners: Leon Narbonne and Erin Lavallee of Cape Cod, Mass., and the manager, Amber Gellman of Stratton.

Music and light refreshments were served during the two-hour event. Gellman and the owners were on hand to greet and walk guests through the six suites developed by Tim Allen of Rangeley.

Narbonne recently bought the Heritage Trust Museum building and turned the lower level into six high end suites. The spacious suites range from sleeping four to six people. The suites all have kitchenettes with hot plates, coffee pots, toaster ovens, microwaves, tiled bathrooms with stand up showers, cable, flat screen TVs, WiFi and air conditioning. At least half of the rooms have a sitting area with a dining table and chairs and a couch. Several of the rooms can adjoin together, one room is handicap accessible and a few of the rooms are pet friendly.

“We are trying to accommodate everyone by adding different amenities to each room,” Gellman states. “Erin has exceptional taste and personally decorated each of these suites with a country styled theme.” These suites are within walking distance to everything you might need in Oquossoc, from the local grocery store, park, boat, kayak and snowmobile rentals, marina and restaurants.

The booking process is easy, says Gellman, “Just go to our website at oquossoccountrysuites.com and follow the instructions. We are also on Facebook and Homeaway.com. If booking through the internet isn’t easy for you then a quick phone at 491-1779 or 491- 6132 can get you a suite booked in just a few minutes.”

The owners, Narbonne and Lavallee own homes in Rangeley and in Cape Cod, Mass.

The manager, Gellman lives in Stratton and is also the manager of Sugarloaf Rentals & Cleaning Services LLC (a full property management company.)
