Harpswell Center house description

Lovely Mere Point home perched along the shore ledge on Maquoit Bay. Enjoy utmost privacy at end of secluded 5 acre wooded and pasture peninsula. Spectacular water views from bedrooms. Kitchen opens into expansive living room with sensational bay views, water birds and sunsets. Sunbathing on the deck you'll feel you're aboard a ship. Foraging herons, diving ospreys, ducks and curious seals are your only company. No dock but great and easy swimming off the rocky shoreline. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS RENTAL HOUSE ARE DONATED TO THE CENTER FOR CETACEAN RESEARCH & CONSERVATION (a 501C3 non-profit organization) TO FUND RESEARCH & CONSERVATION OF WHALES & DOLPHINS AROUND THE GLOBE.
