                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Stu, in the photo, is a retired Coast Guard officer, who enjoyed the icebreaker service for 22 years. He became a veterinarian at age 50 and now practices small animal medicine and raises Icelandic Sheepdogs. Our bitch, Runa, is in the rowing shell with him offshore of the house. Debbie was a Washington lawyer for 20 years before taking up sheep farming. Now she manages the farm and renting the Maine house until she and Stu retire up there.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jonesport:
                  We bought this house after vacationing in Maine each fall for 25 years. We choose it because it is beyond the traffic to Bar Harbor, but close enough for a day trip. It has the required spectacular view from every room of the ocean that included islands. It is also on 2 miles of nearly desserted beach yet near a 'real' town, i.e. one with a hardware store and a lobster coop. It is also near a hospital and a small university. Perfect for us.
