Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I am a graphic designer, artist and music lover. An avid hiker and camper, I have been coming to Mt. Desert Island for over twenty years.

Why Somesville, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
I rented this cabin two years ago and loved being here! Somesville is so central to everything on the island. When it became available to purchase I knew it was the spot I was hoping for!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin's privacy, being down a dirt road, combined with its lovely arts and crafts interior make it special. Two acres of pine woods near the top of Somes Sound is a real find.
