Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Barry and Paula are a semi-retired couple who Winter in Florida where they have rental properties. Summers, for the past several years, have been spent here in Down East Maine as tour guides and they have recently added rental properties in the area. Originally from the NY Metro area, they have traveled extensively throughout the US, Alaska and the world.

Why the Owner Chose Lamoine:
Gull Cottage is in the perfect location for enjoying the views and activities of Frenchman's Bay, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough to everything, yet quietly situated near the end of a paved dead end road.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Expansive views of Frenchman's Bay with breathtaking sunrises. Just steps from deep water access for your boat, kayak, fishing and other water activities. Boat can be anchored and kayaks launched from shore and viewed from the cottage and deck. Built in 1993, its modern living room, dining room/kitchen, four bedrooms and three baths meet the needs of extended families. One mile from Marlboro Beach, a community tidal shorefront seldom frequented by tourists. Three miles from Bloomfield Park, a community only sandy beach for swimming in Blunt's Pond.
