Nestled in the Northwest is a quaint little town that its quirky residents are proud to call home. With charming shops lining its one main thoroughfare, Lumby is home to the oldest apple tree in the county and the smallest bank in the state. And though it’s hours from the nearest big city, readers will always find Lumby close to their hearts. When Mark and Pam Walker, a vacationing couple from the East Coast, decide to restore Lumby’s ramshackle Montis Abbey and turn it into an inn, it takes a while for the locals to warm up to them. Especially the irascible William Beezer, owner of The Lumby Lines-the newspaper “worth the paper it’s printed on.” At every turn, he tries to hinder the Walkers’ efforts. But the couple soon learns that for every citizen like William, there are many more willing to lend a hand-and that Lumby isn’t just a place, it’s a way of life.

Oh, I want to live in Lumby,
I really really do.
And if you read about Lumby
You’ll want to live there too.
Hank’s a plastic pink flamingo,
who’s kept dressed to the nines.
The monks at Saint Cross Abbey
Make rum sauces…
Fruit flavors of all kinds!
Complaints to the Sheriff’s
Are quite amusing…
Like: 11:22pm – Pickup vs. deer. Pickup wins.
They had me laughing,
Time and time again.
A yellow lab named Toby,
Was elected mayor…
As reported in the news.
Overnight, random mailboxes were painted,
In very bright green hues.
Mark and Pam bought Montis Abbey,
and with their archetect, Brooke,
Are restoring it, to it’s former glory…
They invite you to come and take a look.
A moose with a red tricycle
Stuck to it’s antlers.
Goats locked in the bank vault,
Eating their weight in cash.
A pot eating, pair of bovines,
With, very very, bad gas…
Yep, they ate the entire stash!
Charlotte, age 90, and her new husband,
Dennis and Gabrielle,
Simon the sheriff, and his wife Ann,
And former Brother Joshua, as well…
Are some of the folks that reside in town,
And what stories they do tell.
Oh yes, I want to live in Lumby,
I really really do.
And now that you’ve read about Lumby,
I’ll bet you want to live there too!
