Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I have grown up going to MDI and am so glad to own this home, built by my parents in 1990. My daughters have caught the bug and love it as much as I do, may retire here!

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
We love Acadia National Park and spend every free minute climbing the mountains, swimming in the lakes, biking, kayaking... ahhh! Our dogs love it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Maine is a state of mind! We spend all our time outdoors but love to hang out by the fire on rainy or cold days, the glass round table is perfect for puzzles
