                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I enjoy hiking, and all types of boating. My family has lived in Maine, specifically Mount Desert Island since the late 1700's. I have an art gallery in Bernard Maine on the waterfront,as well as a working boat yard and private Marina.

                  Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
                  I was looking for a place to rent for the winter and when I visited the house, I fell in love with the welcoming charm as soon as I walked in. I bought the house a month later. I've lived there and enjoyed every moment.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The historic charm breathes through the house, it's cozy not cavernous, the kitchen is open and light filled with a wonderful wood stove to take the chill off on a rainy evening, as well as the large fireplace in the great room and the dining room as well.
