                              About the owner: Summered and lived in this pretty historic village since I was a boy. It's one of the most beautiful places I know of.

                              Why the Owner Chose Somesville:
                              Can't beat the location! Million dollar view of the mountains of Acadia National Park. Backyard deck and dock. The kayaking is great!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Photograph bald eagles, ospreys and other wildlife right from the dock. Library and gallery next door. Island Explorer pick up streetside in front of the house.
