Steve is a Chartered Financial Consultant and Valancy is a dental hygienist and a certified group exercise /aqua fitness instructor.
Steve is a native Mainer and Valancy grew up in New Brunswick, Canada.
We have one son, who is a college sophomore studying Civil Engineering. Our son has played hockey since age 4 so these are our first winters not spent living at the rink!
Valancy and our yellow lab, Samson have become quite the team on the dog agility competition circuit. You may see Samson practicing his jumps off the dock.
We love skiing and we love the lake.
Steve stumbled accross the property while teaching in the local school district back in 1980. He used his time off to build out the large garage into an in-law guest house, which allowed his parents to move into it when they retired in 1985. While constantly updating the property every year, it now bears little resemblence to the chalet camp of 1980. After moving to Saco in 2006, we decided to share Grandview 14 as a rental property unlike any other you will find in the area.
Being a grandfathered property, we are lucky to have our home located only 50 feet from the water, with a gentle slope. We also love the serenity of all the hidden coves on the Lake. Its the perfect start to a day to paddle around in the kayaks watching the sunrise.
Don't miss out on your chance to enjoy a RELAXING vacation week on the water's edge! Like us on facebook and you can receive a $100 discount on any remaining 2013 week. It's a real bargain at ONLY $850.
