              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1976

              About the owner: GramEpat has been a Realtor for over 35 years. Her vacation cottages are 'broker owned'. Each guest receives a welcome basket with GramE's goodies and GrampEBob makes a sign with arriving guests' last name on it. Active military and/or Veteran? (Thank you for serving our country!) Inquire about special discounted rates. (We are both 'Wicked Proud' of our son and his wife who both serve in the Navy :) Let us know your time frame and favorite cottage. We'll save your spot and leave the lights on for you!

              Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert:
              We love this central location on Mt.Desert Island. The elevated wooded acreage is just minutes from the local villages...A short drive to Bar Harbor, easy access to the lakes on the island..and not far from the beautiful salt water beaches. The village landing on Somes Sound is located across the street from my nearby office in the charming historic village of Somesville...(home of the first settlers on Mt.Desert Island). The wooded acreage borders National Park acreage...

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We enjoy the amenities, the wooded privacy , southern exposure and the proximity to all the island villages... Plus the convenience of two level living... GrampEBob designed and built this home in the mid 70's...We raised our sons in this chalet...until they left for college and we decided to move 'year round' to our cottage on Long Pond. We chose to keep this trendy home for our paying house guests . We enjoy sharing our first 'Piece of Maine' with people 'from away'. Let us know your vacation time frame so that we can save your spot for you. We'll put a welcome basket with GramEpat's goodies in the refrig, GrampEBob will hang up your name sign, crank up the heat and leave the lights on for your arrival. (Don't forget to pack your polar fleece jackets, back packs, hikin' boots and camera !)
