Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: I am a semi-retired holistic nurse and homeopathic educator and consultant who resides in Florida with time to enjoy Maine in the summers. After raising my family in S. Berwick, Maine and returning to school for healthcare and nursing, I spent time in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine before moving to Florida in 2009.
Why the Owner Chose South Bristol, ME, USA:
After a long hiatus from Maine, I began what became a three year search in 1995 to find a property in mid-coast Maine. I kept returning to S. Bristol and specifically Rutherford Island. From the moment I saw this 'little house on the harbor', I knew it was a keeper. The house is co-owned by myself and my daughter, Julie Erickson, a Maine resident.
