About the owner: I started coming to this area of Maine when I was 6 years old. My father was a professor so he had summers off and every July 1st, we packed up the car and headed Downeast to Prospect Harbor. Being a city kid from NYC, the summers soon became a welcome respite for a young boy's growing imagination and sense of adventure. I have many happy memories of combing the beach, walking through the woods, going to bean suppers, antique shops and flea markets, Farmer's markets and just enjoying the cool summer ocean breeze. When I married my wife, she fell in love, not only with me but this area of the world. We have together shared many happy memories and our daughter has grown up also loving Maine. We know you will fall in love as well!!
Why the Owner Chose Prospect Harbor: There is no better place to leave the cares of everyday life behind you, than here. Come reconnect, regroup, re-energize and rejuvenate yourself and your loved ones!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: This area is secluded, remote, private, quiet, constant rhythum of the waves is present, cool temperatures with mosquitos willing to befriend you! Nature offers glimpses of fox, deer, chipmunks, porcupines, seagulls and that occasional siting of the 'Elusive Moose!'
