A lobster fishing community with an interesting summer population. Pretty quiet in September. Most summer people gone. Best sailing time of year. Lovely place to be in June/September....moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1983

                      About the owner: I run a music festival on Swan's Island the first week of August. My family is in residence from the 4th of July to the start of school, usually the last days of August. I've been a teacher and a songwriter; now rent multiple properties and charter a boat.

                      Why the Owner Chose Swans Island:
                      The primary reason to be interested in this house, given multiple options on Swan's Island, is to come to Swan's on Valencia with me (the owner) as captain. Lobsterbake, country breakfast, etc. will be supplied. I get to sail in September, the bravest sailing month, and you get the benefit of all that fun. Two great days of sailing with hot showers, sheets, comfort on the other end.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      House is equipped for my family and aside from removing the satellite dish (who needs it) it has all the amenities. September is the most wonderful month to experience Swan's Island.
