First Day!!

Posted in: March 2014
First Day!!

WE DID IT!! It is so surreal that we are actually open! For those of you who don’t know, this has been a long, challenging road and after today I can say a long road worth while. A dream in the making for the past 15 or so years, I have so many thank you’s to those who have made my dream come true.

First and foremost, my amazing mother, business partner, and most importantly, best friend, Sheryl Biron. My mom has taken on more than anyone could fathom. She is the strongest, most kind, generous, loving, supportive, and loyal woman I have ever met. Without her I do not know where I would be. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I love you.

Next, Clint Mitschele with Mitschele Excavating and Building. I do not even know how to put into words the gratefulness and genuine respect I have for Clint. He is meticulous and exquisite with his work. The renovations and “behind the scenes” work that was put in on his end could not be listed out. Nothing can be said or done to express “Thank you” enough. Please know every detail is noticed and I will forever be grateful for what you have done.

To my brother, my other best friend, Michael and his wife, Stephanie (my sister way before they got married), thank you. Your endless support, listening ears, and all of your help has gotten me through these past few months. I do not know how you do all you do, but I cannot thank you enough for always being there for me at the drop of a hat. I love you both very much (and my little man Michael David) and thank you for everything.

Last, but certainly not least, my staff. I have managed MANY people and I can honestly say I am SO fortunate to have the amazing, dedicated, and hard working staff that I have. It has not been a long time, yet, but I can see how lucky I am to have you all and I have never had such a great group. Specific thanks to Ben and Jessie for your hard work and dedication in the days prior to opening. Always know, even on our challenging days, I am so thankful to have you all.

There are a million others I am thankful for and I could write a book about all of the supportive and helpful people that have been here through this journey but I will keep it as short as possible. THANK YOU, everyone, that has been here for my Mom and I during this process. We are forever grateful.

We’re Open!

We’re Open!

Since the purchase of the Hummingbird House in September of 2013 we have been working so diligently with blood, sweat, and a few tears to make it represent our family and make them proud! As you read in our About Us; the Hummingbird House is a restaurant that is owned and operated by family. It is owned by me… Elizabeth Biron and my Mom, Sheryl Biron. I have always dreamed of opening a family oriented place that could represent two of the great legacies of my life. My Dad, Mike Biron, loved making breakfast and it would frequently be a special family time. My “Mema”, Elizabeth Lopatesky, was a wonderful cook who spent her later days making the local priests lunch weekly.

The Hummingbird House is not only built on a menu of family traditions and recipes but it has been incorporated into the restaurant name and logo. The hummingbird has a significant meaning because the bird would frequent the family after Mike Biron passed. Our family feels that the hummingbird would visit to let them know that the future would be great. In addition to the bird being apart of the logo the strong mountain behind it is the beautiful Burgess Adirondack Mountain where Mike’s ashes rest.

Come visit us starting at 6am on Tuesday, March 4th! We are open:

Tuesday – Sunday: 6am-3pm
Closed Monday

We will work very hard to bring “Good Food, Good Friends, and Good Times” as one of our eating rooms displays.

We are already booking some events and are so excited to have our first event March 8th to celebrate my nephew’s first birthday! I will share a post on that special day soon. We hope to see you soon and serve you a special meal or customize a special event for your occasion.
