                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      About the owner: born and raised in Southwest Harbor I wanted a place ffor my husband and I to 'come home' when retirement comes. Also a place to enjoy some with family until then.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor:
                      this property is 2 doors down from the place my father was born and kitty corner across the street to where I lived as a young girl - it was for sale and it was a place we could make our own......which we have with the remodel in 2011. Enjoy the before and after album in the bookcase..........

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We enjoy the view of the quiet harbor with our morning coffee.....we love hearing from the notes in the cottage log that others like it too especially our 'Cottage Family' that come back year after year......a big plus is we are away from the hustle and bustle - we can visit that when a need arises......
