About Janet Madeira
Deer Meadow was my parent's vacation home for 20+ years. It has been passed down to the next generation with many fond memories. The current owner and 6th child in a family of seven spent every summer vacation as a child on Mount Desert Island and moved here permanently 16 years ago leaving an advertising career in NYC for a more natural lifestyle in Maine. Upon moving to Maine she worked as the assistant manager at the Historic Claremont Hotel in Southwest Harbor for 12 years and now spends summers gardening.
Janet Madeira purchased this farmhouse in 1990
