About Scott Dugas & Laura Wilkinson
I grew up in Yarmouth, ME and on Casco Bay. My family started and still owns a boat yard on the Royal River in Yarmouth.
My parents, brothers and I built a family cottage on Lower Goose Island in 1974.
Scott Dugas & Laura Wilkinson purchased this cottage in 1985
Why Scott Dugas & Laura Wilkinson chose Bustins Island
In 1985, I bought property on Lower Goose and built this cottage and bunk house with my own family.
I have the good fortune and pleasure to enjoy nearly every weekend from early spring to late fall on Lower Goose. I have created several trails for walking and exploring the island. I truly enjoy my time on Lower Goose, whether I am relaxing, enjoying the summer sunshine or chipping brush and working in the woods.
I have a lobster boat, with which I lobster in the summer and scallop in the winter.
I look forward to my future retirement on Lower Goose Island.
What makes this cottage unique
Lower Goose is a slice of heaven. Close and convenient to the mainland, but far enough removed to let the day to day routine evaporate and relaxation to take over.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Spent the week experience the slice of heaven on Lower Goose Island. Kendall had high expectations for the cottage and the ambience, but these hight hopes were not even close to the reality which far exceeded anything imagined. Highlights were lobster dinner cooked on the dock, sunset boat excursions around the island, kayaking out to seal ledge, and relaxing in the salt air and sunshine.
