Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in Virginia but come to Maine whenever we can.

Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor, ME, USA:
The property has been in the family for years. Full of memories and memorabilia. The house is large and the spaces flexible to accomodate all ages. The downstairs master suite is large enough for a family. And one family put a crib in the walk-in closet and made it the nursery. The master suite is also very comfortable for older guests with mobility issues.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
On the ocean. Perennial garden for cutting flowers. Enlarged front porch with a swing. Five acres of meadow and woods behind the house. Great birding and walking trail. Front lawn for children's games.
