                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: My husband, Gary and our two children have been coming to our cottages in Maine for 22 years. We live in Naples, Fl most of the year and can only spend a month in Southwest Harbor at this time. We are well traveled, but after finding Acadia National Park and the Quietside Village of Southwest Harbor, we have been content. It is truly a magical place. It is our pleasure to share our home with other visitors who have found the same beauty.

                      Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
                      We loved everything about this house. The location was superb as we could walk or bike everywhere. And when the kids were older they could stop the LLBean bus in front of the house and be independent. We loved the Victorian style and the peek of the harbor across the street. Best view is from the bathroom window and the front porch. After a hectic day battling the crowds in Bar Harbor and the main trails, it was so welcoming to come home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Walk to EVERYTHING!!! market, library, town dock, to the ferry, to a lobster pound, to some of the finest restaurants in Maine, playground, ocean swimming, to Acadia's Flying Mountain and Valley cove, specialty wine and cheese store, drugstore, clothes shopping, bike shop.
