                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      About the owner: Twenty five years ago we built this as our summer home and spent many happy summers here as our children grew. We love Drakes Island so much that after our early retirement we have made our permanent home here. We recently completed renovation a new house on the island as our year round residence. We refreshed and updated our summer home to share with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Drakes Island:
                      The house is a short walk easy walk to the beach - one third of a mile. Island Activities include the community house, basketball , tennis and playgrounds, the beach and harbor. Many other families stay near by giving the area a neighborhood feel. We are just one street over from the main road making for easy access on and off the island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      To take a quote from an essay, which we have framed in our home, that our daughter wrote on a school essay over 20 years ago 'In Maine it is fun to hang out. I think going to Maine each year brings our family closer together each year. Maine, especially Drakes Island, is an awesome place to go'
