Jeff Prostovich, her husband, is a her business manager and literary agent and a California real estate broker.

Why Jeff Prostovich and Sharon Lovejoy chose South Bristol
Long story short, we were in the right place at the right time. Dumb luck. Years ago, I read the 19th century writings of Sarah Orne Jewett and fell in love with Maine. For years, we visited the Damariscotta/Bristol peninsula region and searched for an old property close to the water. One autumn our real estate agent called to tell us there was a property coming up for sale on a private road–a road that seldom had anything on the market. Though we thought we knew every hidden area on the peninsula, we’d never been on this private, one lane road that threads along Little Harbor and faces John’s Bay. When we came upon the cottage, virtually untouched since 1950, I kissed the shutters. “We found it,” I said, and Jeff agreed, though he saw all the hard work ahead. For the next few months, we readied the cottage through a series of changes for an upcoming magazine shoot. Though we’ve owned it since 1996, we never take it for granted. Weather permitting, we eat our meals out on the screened porch where we watch the sun and moon rise over Pemaquid Point.
What makes this Cottage unique
Peace. The glimmer and shifting of the ocean and sky. The scent of sea. Mile long private road perfect for walking. The sight of billowing sails. The putt, putt, putt of lobster boats. The flash of the Pemaquid light on fog and clouds. Indian pipes poking through the leaves. Terns and Gannets diving into dark waters. A Bald Eagle holding court on the ledge in front of the cottage. The high, piercing call of the osprey. Pink Lady Slippers blooming among the blueberries. Chickadees and nuthatches, jays, goldfinches, and Phoebes everywhere. A tame chipmunk and a greedy squirrel.
