                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1985

                  About the owner: I am a producer for CBS Sunday Morning , with long time family connections to the Boothbay region, and a deep love of the area, and the Carriage House.

                  Why the Owner Chose Boothbay:
                  This is our beloved home...and has been for 30 years. We enjoy sharing it with others who will love it and enjoy it as we have.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love to swim in the tidal pool at Knickerkane Park, and the fresh water of Knickerbocker Lake. We love to kayak on the Back River, and either walk or bike or paddle to the Trevett Store for lobster rolls and burgers. We love walking along the paths,and through the gardens of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens next door, and in the wooded paths of the Porter Preserve on Barters Island. We love to sit on the porch on summer evenings and watch the sun go down.
