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 cottage on Lower Goose Island in 1974. In 1985, I bought property on Lower Goose and a cottage and bunk house with my own family. This new post and beam cottage was built in 2010.
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 spent 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.
Scott Dugas & Laura Wikinson purchased this cottage in 1985
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.
