Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am a professional private chef that travels with with my clients throughout the year. My home is an extension of my personality and I enjoy sharing it and its energy with fellow travelers. I have lived and worked in Northeast Harbor for almost twenty years and think it one of the most beautiful places on the east coast. Come find out for yourself!

Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
I started my career as a chef on yachts and landed in Northeast Harbor time and time again. It was so beautiful I bought a home here!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
For me, having access to Acadia for hiking and biking during the summer and fall and cross country skiing, hot baths and crackling fires in the winter is why I love my home. I love having my friends over for dinner and games but enjoy jumping into Bar Harbor for pizza and a movie at Reel Pizza equally as much. Taking a boat out the Isleford and having Lobster at the dock after visiting the art gallery or poking around the shops in Northeast is all a true delight!
