Owner info

Year Purchased: 1922

About the owner: The Bait Can is owned by five sisters who inherited the property from their parents in 1993. Our summers growing up were spent in this wonderful house. The house was built by our great grandfather in 1922 as a wedding present for his fourth child, our grandmother.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
KBIA (www.kbia.org) offers a wide variety of children's activities and programs, and is located just a 5-minute walk from the house - next to the beach. Check out local favorites - Nunan's Lobster Hut and The Wayfarer in nearby Cape Porpoise, Merryfield's for berry picking, the Lobster Company on Rt. 1 in Arundel for fresh (live) lobsters and seafood, Cape Arundel Golf Club (where the Bush's play), Rachel Carson Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, great outlet shopping in nearby Kittery and Freeport (home of L.L. Bean).
