Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hello, My name is Jim Merryman. I have been hauling traps since the ripe ol' age of 8. I started with a rowing skiff, determined to make my own way. Now I'm a commercial fisherman with 800 traps and fish them year round. Lobsters are my life. I don't just catch them. I deliver them to fine restaurants, markets, and customers who come to the Farmers' Market or drop by the wharf. I believe in our product, Maine lobster, and strive to make it affordable to any and all who are interested.

Why the Owner Chose Harpswell, ME, USA:
I bought this property from a fishing family in 2010. It's protected location is ideal for the boats and the fishermen. I sold a covenant to the State of Maine protecting this property and forever keeping a commercial working waterfront. In doing so, I have helped preserve and protect a piece of the fishing industry for future generations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wharf came complete with a house that I didn't need. I decided to offer it as a vacation rental for anyone who wanted a real and unique Maine experience. By staying here you are witness to the lobster industry and all of the hard working people that make the industry successful. You have the opportunity to enjoy lobsters fresh off the boat while admiring the view from the deck. With a full week's stay you have the choice of a sunset cruise around the waters of Harpswell and Casco Bay or hauling traps on my boat sometime during that week. We here at Potts Harbor Lobster and Reversing Falls have worked hard to make the house as comfortable as possible for a relaxing and enjoyable visit. Come. Stay. Relax...Return.
