Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: For nearly forty years Don & Marilyn Chambers (my parents) have been welcoming guests to Captains Quarters and have provided a level of service that has become rare. They have built a reputable name for themselves in vacation rentals through hard work & dedication to providing comfort and convenience for guests. The Chambers built Captains Quarters in 1980. At this point in their lives (2013) they have decided it is time to retire and slow down a bit and do more of the things they love to do. I became owner of my parents property, Captains Quarters at the end of 2013 and I intend to continue welcoming guests just as my parents have always done This is one of my favorite homes that I have always loved and understand why my parents continued to have many 'repeat' tenants.

Why the Owner Chose Hall Quarry:
Maine is full of wonderful places, but few can rival the experience of spending your vacation on Somes Sound. Captains Quarters offers a clean, comfortable, peaceful, and memorable spot for your next vacation. Etched deep into the heart of Mount Desert Island, the five mile long Somes Sound is the only fjord on the Atlantic Coast. Surrounded by the lush mountains of Acadia National Park, the Sound offers spectacular views of both land and sea. Leave your worries behind, and enjoy an unforgettable vacation experience on Somes Sound.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Within minutes from Bar Harbor, Mountains, Restaurants, Marina's, Acadia National Park and amazing views of Somes Sound. What makes our property unique is that we provide water access, a boat ramp, deep water mooring, and dock with row boat. Most evenings you can watch deer graze in front of your deck as you look over the sunset on Somes Sound. Ocasionally you will see a Momma deer and her new fawn.
