Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: Having vacationed for many summers in coastal Maine, I decided to build a permanent home there, where I can enjoy weekends and summer vacations with my daughters and their friends (for now) and where I plan to live during retirement. I fell in love with the natural beauty of Harpswell - with its many fingers and islands, and I love the fact that it is 'off the beaten tourist track.' Everywhere you look there are water views that change with every turn in the road. Harpswell is peaceful, yet so convenient to the amenities of Brunswick, Freeport, Bath and even Portland (just 40 minutes away).

Why Harpswell, ME, USA:
It is easy to get to -- just over 2 hours from my primary home in Massachusetts -- and it is situated in one of the most beautiful coastal communities in Maine or anywhere in the U,S. Harpswell has more coastline than any community in the United States -- some 230 miles of shoreline and dozens of islands.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a wonderful place to just relax, sit on the float and read a book and watch the last rays of the sun playing on the water. I love eating breakfast out on the balcony, watching the lobster boats and all the wildlife on the water, hiking along trails with spectacular water views; enjoying the warm waters of Harpswell Sound, either swimming or just floating on an inner tube. It is also a great base location from which to explore the many attractions of mid-Coast Maine. For the more adventuresome, it is also a do-able day trip to Acadia National Park and Mt. Desert Island.
