About the owner: Feeling so blessed Bob and Hope have loved this property for 14 years and want to share it. Bob is an aerospace consultant who loves golfing and travel and Hope is a retired psychotherapist whose passion is gardening. We live in Austin, TX in the winter with our Siamese cat Otis who loves to patrol the coast of Maine in the summers. We have four sons and five grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Winter Harbor: Longing to come back to Maine we searched from Portland on up the coast until we found Deep Cove. When we walked onto the land we knew this was IT. The cabin had been here since 1954 when it was built as a 'day cottage' for the owners. We lived in it for four summers before the house was built. It is a very special place for us.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The view from the water is captivating. You can watch the lobster boats working in the mornings, followed by seagulls hoping to get lucky. Cruise ships pass in the distance on their way into Bar Harbor sometimes twice a day at the height of the season. We are located within walking distance of the small village of Winter Harbor which hosts a library, bank, performance hall, 5&10, post office and grocery store. Schoodic Point which is part of Acadia National Park is two miles away and is a lovely place to bike. Great restaurants are here with some open year round.
