          Year Purchased: 2002

          About the owner: This home is family owned. We are all originally from Pittsburgh, PA. but now only mom lives there. We love the quiet cove and watching the tides go in and out with all the wonderful wildlife that comes with this location. All of us like to be out on the water canoing, kayaking, and taking a swim. Now that we are a family living in various places on the east coast, this is our home meeting place. It offers all that our growing family enjoys.

          Why the Owner Chose Harpswell (N,S,E&W):
          We are all outdoor folks and this location let us get away from the crowds to enjoy all that we love.
