About Jack Dostie
This gorgeous piece of land is now owned and maintained by the three eldest brothers of the Dostie family- Paul, Jack and Dan. They all live on various spots along the peninsula. "We are so happy that you are able to enjoy The Point as it truly is a special place."
Jack Dostie purchased this House in 1956
Why Jack Dostie chose Harpswell
The Gun Point peninsula has a rich history beginning with Native Americans, later including pirates, bootleggers and smugglers. There was also abundant industry here for a time. At the turn of the century, Dan’s Ice Pond (a freshwater pond located more inland on the peninsula) was created to harvest ice. Ice was shipped all along the East Coast as far as Florida. During the Colonial War supplies were blocked by the British; subsequently a “salt works” was built on Gun Point Creek to process sea salt. Since then, the peninsula has served as a docking area for lobster fishing, clam and mussel harvesting, seaweed harvesting and a fabulous vacation spot. In the early 1960’s, Jules and Yvette Dostie with partners and friends, bought the entirety of Gun Point; built the road and developed the land.
What makes this House unique
Located at the very tip of the Gun Point peninsula, you can experience spectacular views that will make you fall in love with this unique place. While enjoying morning coffee or dining al fresco on the front deck, you can watch lobster boats getting their daily catch, and sailboats on their way to Boothbay Harbor. It is an exceptional place where you can enjoy the pool, walk the beach, collect sea glass and shells, or just relax and enjoy the summer days.

A wonderful vacation!
The house was just as listed but better. Watching the tides change,the clouds roll in, the lobstermen at work was Maine magic at its best. It was one of the best vacations ever. My family thanked so much for finding this place. It was top drawer all the way.
We had a great time at The Point. It's a very beautiful spot in mid coast Maine. Our hosts were very friendly and we appreciated the lovely welcoming gifts.
Great family vacation
The location and view at this property are outstanding. We enjoyed a great family vacation and I would highly recommend.
Perfect for an Extended Family!
Comfortable house, beautiful setting, great local attractions ! But the pool makes it perfect for a multi-generational extended family. We look forward to next year.
Perfect Maine Vacation
We rented this lovely home over July 4th for a family get together. We had 6 adults and 2 children. We were very lucky as the weather was perfect. The house had everything you needed to enjoy Maine. It has a 180 degree view of breathtaking scenery. We used the pool everyday..it was well maintained and solar heated. We would definitely stay at The Point again. We had a wonderful vacation and hated to leave.
