Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: George and Ethel Hartner bought the Hartner Homestead in the early '80s after vacationing in the area since the end of WWII. While they are no longer with us, the Hartner clan now lovingly cares for this family treasure and gather annually to honor its heritage and its legacy. It is with great pride that we welcome vacationers to enjoy the magic of our beloved cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Damariscotta Lake:
So often vacation areas are billed as 'get aways.' But this place brings a new meaning to the term. It's rustic charm and peaceful, panaramic views transform young and old to a time where abundant simple experiences--lake swimming, fishing, hiking, campfires, and family games--help us remember that the simple things in life are indeed the best.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There are many breathtaking views in this beautiful world. The view from this property ranks right up there with any of them.
