We grew up on the east coast and have been coming up to Maine for over 20 years now.
Jon and Deb Gerhard purchased this house in 2002
The location is perfect in that it is relaxing, but there is always plenty of activities to be found for both children and adults- numerous outdoor activities whether on the water or hiking; fine arts from chamber music concerts to the Farnsworth Art Museum and numerous individual galleries and shows; shopping for unique objects offered by local craftspeople; dining from little shacks to fine cuisine; an abundance of activities and interests along with the beauty of the Maine coast, create a perfect vacation spot. Although we've been coming up for over 20 years, we still find something new each time we are here!
