Owner info

About the owner: This home is owned by Kathy Hughes-Morris and Bob Morris of Concord, Mass. Kathy's aunt, Mary Hughes, purchased this home in 1968 and it has been in our family ever since. We have been coming to Drakes Island since our childhood and have been coming back for years with our own children. We know this is a very special place.

Why the Owner Chose Wells, ME, USA:
Drakes Island is a beautiful and unique place. It is a quiet enclave of homes nestled within reach of the splendor and majesty of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Rachael Carson Wildlife Preserve. A family paradise, children can play at the local playground, as well as attend special events and daily activities at the Community Center. Tennis is available to members and guests. Residents and visitors can kayak, go hiking, birdwatching, surfing, fishing, biking, antiquing - all within minutes of home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wrap-around enclosed porch is the highlight of this home. Sit there for hours just reading, entertaining friends, enjoying the ocean views and breezes and watching all the beach goers coming and going.
