Manager info

Year Purchased: 1978

About: We are the Jernigans. Our extended family has owned and operated Renwick House since 1978, along with several other family-owned rental properties. Grandpa and Grandma raised the family in Alexandria, VA, and we all currently reside in the Washington, DC area and the San Francisco, CA area.

Why Otter Creek, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
Our family purchased the 29-acre property in 1978 from a Bar Harbor resident named George Renwick (hence the name 'Renwick House'). The house was built in the 1860's and sits on a beautiful piece of land conveniently near Bar Harbor but away from the bustle of town.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
- 1/2 Mile walk to Acadia National Park (1 mile to Thunder Hole, 2 miles to Sand Beach) - 4.5 Miles to downtown Bar Harbor - Gorgeous sunsets over the back meadow
