Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are two active professionals. Failures at retirement, attempting to spend as much time as possible in New Harbor. We purchased Bayberry Cottage in 2000 and renovated and expanded it. When we moved to a year 'round home on the other side of town, we couldn't bear to sell Bayberry - nor would our children let us! When our children all decide to visit us at the same time and fill the house, we go and stay at our beloved Bayberry!

Why the Owner Chose New Harbor:
We discovered New Harbor 40 years ago while on a camping trip to Boothbay. We immediately packed up our gear and moved to a campground in New Harbor. We returned year after year, first camping, then staying at rentals and finally having our own home. After all these years we still marvel at the beauty of New Harbor and still enjoy its fabulous amenities. We keep meeting more and more folks who have had similar experiences. After having explored so much of the Maine coast, we just knew we had stumbled into a very special place - and we were right!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Immense natural beauty, lobsters right off the boat, ever changing harbor activity. Watch the tides change and the eiders, cormorants, great blue herons, and kingfishers going about their activities. Many find it difficult to tear themselves away from the property. Choose from attractions and distractions galore, or just relax on the porch.
