While not in Maine, my wife and I live in Philadelphia where I am involved in projects on another waterfront: the Schuylkill River. We are blessed with two daughters, their husbands, and best of all, two granddaughters. I passionately believe in the magic of waterfronts; Connor Point is my favorite place in the world.
John Randolph purchased this cottage in 1975
My family has spent part of every summer at Connor Point since 1975. This is our treasure and we enjoy the opportunity to share it with others for a few weeks a year. The location has often been described by friends as one of the best on the island: knock-dead view, dock access to the Great Harbor, 10 minute walk to Acadia National Park, 5 minutes from the town of Southwest Harbor.
Access to a dock on the Great Harbor provides opportunities to explore the coast line in the kayak that comes with the property. There is a guest mooring for those who want to rent larger boats. One can spend endless hours exploring the land exposed at low tide. Or just down the driveway, explore Acadia National Park with it's many trails and beautiful vistas.
