Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Betty & Richard Bartlett created this magical place 25 years ago when they retired. They put together 550 acres of unspoiled woods with a family home and 2 comfortable cabins. Exeter has always been a family gathering place and we have had numerous family holidays, get-to-gethers and two weddings here. The younger generation of our family spent their childhood exploring the woods and streams, watching wildlife, eating apples and blueberries from the trees, sledding, etc. Stewardship of this property has passed to the adult children and we feel a sincere desire to share this beautiful, 'good for the soul' place with others who will enjoy it. Debbie Bartlett is the current resident and manager of Exeter Nature Cabins and environs. She is shown in the picture with her brother, Chris.

Why the Owner Chose Exeter, ME, USA:
Our family has enjoyed this property for years, we are now opening it up to the public to enjoy.
