Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: My husband, John, and I have lived on Mt Desert Island for nearly 40 years. I landed my dream job seven years ago as head gardener at Thuya Garden, a beautiful English border garden in Northeast Harbor. John is a building contractor and has built many beautiful shingle style homes on the island. We love to travel in our Scamp Camper that we've nicknamed 'Shrimp Scampi'.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
We fell in love with this beautiful property and incredible location in 1989. John built Garden Court for my mother when she retired to Maine. We now rent the ground floor of her home and we live upstairs. Garden Court sits on one acre of land along a private driveway in a quiet neighborhood. Check out the beautiful sunsets from Beech Hill or hike Acadia National Park trails just one mile away. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, please call 207-244-4090. Priscilla Hutton. Also, please feel free to call my daughter in law, Vanessa, who helps me with all aspect of Garden Court (207)266-0149.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Great family location. Perfect for couples or friends traveling together. Easy access to our island's best swimming beaches and adventures into Acadia. Garden Court guests enjoy fishing and carry-in canoe/kayak launching privileges at exclusive Somesville Town Dock. Bring your mackerel gear and squid jigs!
