CAPE NEDDICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Cliff House Resort and Spa has been welcoming guests to the Maine coast since 1872 and trying to find new ways to go green.
"I think that every resort needs to be a steward of the land, as well as a business," stated owner Kathryn Weare, whose great grandmother founded the resort.
For four generations, Weare's family has been finding different ways to go green.
"Unfortunately, our guests do not accommodate some of the green principles that were available 141 years ago, like passing the towel for the Saturday night bath," she said with a laugh.
All those bathrooms in the resort's rooms, combined with heated pools, hot tubs and a spa, use a tremendous amount of hot water, so she sought out an environmentally friendly way to help reduce her energy costs.
