Many of the islanders are lobstermen and fishermen, and fresh food from the sea is always available. Wild berry picking, mushroom hunting and sea glass collecting are popular past times. Migratory bird populations are very evident all summer long, and bald eagles are known to nest nearby. There is one outstanding restaurant, with practically all-locally sourced produce and meats, and a wonderful new gourmet pizza shop in town with an organic market. The lunch spot, Cooper's Landing, is a lovely way to while away the afternoon in town, sitting out enjoying the boats sail through and the kids romping around.

Year Purchased: 1953

About: Our grandparents built this cabin after living in Norway for several years. This photo shows one of the original Norwegians, our mother, enjoying the beach below the sod roofed house.

Why North Haven:
Our grandmother came to this island as a child, and returned when her husband retired. This cabin was the guest house, custom built to her exacting specifications, but we spent many happy summers here, and enjoy our own children in this beautiful place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There's something about feeling as if you're in Europe, after just a drive and a ferry ride away. The cabin is both rustic and ornate; the carvings exquisite, the built-in furniture so well crafted and unusual, the views are beautiful, the beach combing can keep you busy for hours.
