Owner / Property Manager
I grew up on Mount Desert Island. I was born in Bar Harbor and lived in Northeast Harbor with my 4 brothers and sisters and two parents. Now I live in Somesville, a small village in the town of Mount Desert. I am the principal of a small K-8 school on the backside of the island. My school has 120 students and is one of the best schools! I have two grown sons and a husband. I love the island and living on it. It is a beautiful place but even more that that, you can do so many things: swim, fish, climb mountains, walk on carriage trails, go boating, kayaking, canoeing, lots of places to swim in both fresh and ocean water, and most of all, it is simply one of the most beautiful places you could ever see.
My husband and I bought our property with one of my sisters. The original acreage was 4 acres so we split it right down the middle. She built her home at the mouth of the driveway and my husband and I built our home at the very top of the driveway. We designed our home and I decorated and chose all of the paint colors and furniture. My other brothers and sister are near by and we all appreciate that our children have grown up together, attended the same high school, and have carried on our family traditions.
One of my favorite attributes of my home is the location. It is centrally located on the island. I can drive to all sides of the island and off the island in about 15-20 minutes. This is a huge benefit! As I mentioned before, our home is surrounded by woods but we are minutes away from an Art Gallery, a small museum, and the town library. Along with this, I love the huge windows that face out to the lawn, trees, and blue sky. Every one who visits us always comments on how nice and airy our home is.
