Hi, I'm Lee!

I have lived in Southwest Harbor, Maine, here on Mount Desert Island since 1946 when my father, a Doctor and native of Bar Harbor, returned to the island to begin medical practice. For many years he was the "Town Doctor" and I would tag along as he did house calls on the island and the outer islands. I had a boat building business for thirty years, ran a couple of restaurants, taught school briefly, did some part time lobstering, retired in 2004. Am now doing a fair amount of writing, articles, a book, and working on a cookbook.I have lived at the family camp which my Dad built in 1946 at least a part of every summer except for my time in the Army. I enjoy fishing swimming, reading, working on the two cabins, boating including canoeing and kayaking and camping. I used to be an avid skier, but now we go to Florida winters where it's safer and I don't beat up my limbs.

Here is my property:

My husband and I stayed at Lee and Arletta's cabin for 7 days and we had a great time. The cabin is in the perfect location, the lake was truly magical, mirror calm at times with beautiful sunsets, and an amazing view in the morning. It’s close enough to all the attractions at Mount Desert but still on the quieter side. The cabin is clean, has all the modern conveniences and comes with a canoe and paddles and has its own dock. The owners are really nice and helpful and were even willing to make an itinerary for us! We are already looking forward to going again!
