              Year Purchased: 1985

              About the owner: Owners, Jennie and Andy, built and lived in this house prior to turning into a rental in 1997, so the house has a feel of home and is well equipped with all the amenities one might need or want. Longtime summer residents to Southwest Harbor, they still live in the area (less than 1 mile away) and share their love and enthusiasm for the area in a notebook describing things to do and see.

              Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
              Because this part of the world is quite spectacular.
