About Sarah Woodhead
My siblings and I inherited this property from my father. In the 1950's he and my mother would bring us here to camp. In the early sixties, he converted the barn into a modern living space. We have vacationed here every year since.
Sarah Woodhead purchased this house in 1956
Why Sarah Woodhead chose Pretty Marsh
This property offers spectacular ocean frontage, two semi private beaches, and a cozy rustic living space for up to eight people. It is perfect for families. Acadia National Park is close by. Bar Harbor is an easy drive. It is the perfect place from which to launch exceptional hiking, biking, boating expeditions. There are spectacular opportunities for beach combing, wildlife viewing, painting and photography. Even on a foggy Maine morning, it is the best place to read a good book, put together a puzzle, play board games, sing songs by the fire, or cook a giant feast.
What makes this house unique
The property surrounding West Point is one-of-a-kind. Our children learned to row, sail, kayak, hike and bike here. Together we have explored tidal pools, fished off the dock, and swam from the dock to the beach. On foggy days and cool evenings, we have spent innumerable hours fitting together puzzles, playing games, and singing songs in front of the fire. Feasts of lobster, crab cakes, mussels and clams are common. From the property, we have seen eagles, osprey, gulls, deer, foxes, seals and porpoises. You have to see it to experience the magic!
