                              About the owner: We inherited our family cottage in 2006. The family has spent many wonderful summer vacations here since 1969.

                              Why the Owner Chose West Tremont:
                              The Maine oceanfront with it's stunning views. Great bird and wildlife watching. Acadia National Park has miles of trails and carriage paths for walking and hiking, miles for bicycling, paths by the ocean and through the woods, ocean and many lakes, great kayaking, swimming and canoeing. Any outdoor activity is available. We love the ocean and we love the outdoors. Mount Desert Island combines both and offers endless outdoor opportunities at any level and everywhere you look is beauty.
