Congratulations to Migis Lodge for their recognition by the New England Inns and Resorts Association with the “Master of New England Innkeeping Lifetime Achievement Award!”
Joan and Tim Porta have run the inn for 44 years! While Joan’s husband Tim is now in assisted living, Joan is winding down her career, and her son Jed is managing the Lodge.
In her article in the December 29, 2023 Issue of the Lakes Region Weekly, Mikayla Patel quotes Joan, “We’re so lucky to have a job where you make people happy. What’s more gratifying than that? The land is sacred and precious. We don’t feel like we own it, but rather it’s in our care for now. We do our best to share it with people and keep it as preserved as possible.”
Jed was also quoted: “Migis Lodge has been a labor of love for my family. The longevity and success we’ve achieved are a testament to the warm and welcoming environment my parents have fostered.” Congratulations to Migis Lodge and the Porta family on this amazing achievement!
