Chip Newell and Susan Morris returned to Maine eight years ago after decades of living all over the US and Canada. Chip first experienced Maine as a student at Bowdoin College and Susan traveled through Maine on her way to the family cottage in Prince Edward Island from Montreal while growing up.
Susan has been in the hospitality and lodging business for over 25 years, including 13 years with Marriott Hotels. She is a bit of a cleanliness nut. Chip has always been in the real estate business, developing hotels, resorts, residences and condos in places as diverse as Washington, DC, Denver, western North Carolina, South Beach Miami, Puerto Rico and Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
Chip and Susan live 10 minutes away from Boothbay Cottages in Boothbay Harbor. Far enough away to ensure your privacy and close enough to be helpful if a need arises.
Three years ago Chip and Susan sold their condo in South Beach Miami and chose to live in Boothbay Harbor on a year-round basis. They love the community and there is so much to do in mid-coast Maine!
When we saw the unique benefit of being able to enjoy both the ocean and a lake grabbed our interest. Views of both from the cottages! Plus it is an amazing century old community of cottages on a quiet dead end road yet so close to the heart of the Harbor.
Ocean and lake views and access. Quiet dead end road. Seasonal community. Close to Linekin Bay Resort, Barrett's Park, Boothbay Region Land Trust trails. Yet only one mile into town.
