Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We've been Mainers for almost 30 years, although the locals still consider us 'from away'. We are a teacher and marine biologist. We look forward to welcoming guests to our apartment, where we lived while building our new home next door.

Why the Owner Chose Pemaquid Beach, Bristol, ME, USA:
The barn is a reconstruction of an early 1800's post and beam parish house that was once in Bristol Mills. Some windows and interior doors were salvaged from an 1875 razed home. Gently used vintage furnishings create a warm, inviting environment.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A 5 minute walk from Round Pond Harbor, an active lobster fishing and sailing harbor. Walk to fine dining or lobster in the rough.
