Excited to begin my seventh season renting! Like you, I enjoy travel and the outdoors: hiking, sailing, cross-country skiing. I've been above the Arctic Circle in Norway, to North Africa and most major European cities in between. I visited Mexico City for the first time a few years ago and was bowled over by the scale of the place and the incredible pre-Columbian artifacts in the Museo Nacional de Antropologia. I'm an architectural illustrator and 3D modeler and take classes in figural sculpture at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in my spare time. You may be tempted to stay indoors with my library of architecture and gardening books but please don't - get out and enjoy Acadia and the Blue Hill Peninsula instead!
My extended family has summered in Blue Hill since the early '80s. That's the early 1880s, five generations with a sixth rising. My immediate family began staying at then newly-remodeled Parker House in 1900, after several seasons renting a cottage from relatives on Parker Point. As with many old houses there have been ups and downs in the course of more than a century of continuous occupancy, but the curtain has risen on a new Parker House, again enjoying its role as a setting for gracious summer living and family memory-making. I am delighted to be able to share it with you!
