                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My husband and I live in Falmouth Maine. This is 45 minutes away from Harpswell. We have always dreamed of having a cottage on the water. We took the plunge and purchased in beautiful Harpswell 5 yrs ago. We love working on the cottage and making the cottage more charming each year. Renting out the cottage has been an enjoyable experience. We develop a nice relationship with every renter. We love how renters appreciate the cottage and natural beauty of Harpswell

                  Why the Owner Chose Harpswell Center:
                  We appreciate good value and believe we offer a relaxing, affordable vacation home. As other renters have noticed, we supply all the comforts of home. We clean the cottage ourselves. This keeps the cottage affordable. It also allows us to visit Harpswell on a regular basis.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Our cottage is just down the street from the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant. The walk there is beautiful. There is a library and a playground with wonderful equipment within walking distance of the cottage. You can kayak from our property in kayaks that we provide.
