About Jeff Grant

Jennifer and I are both native to the area and have spent our entire lives here. I am a local builder and she is a caretaker for several people here on Prospect Point. We are avid outdoors-people, who enjoy hiking,boating,bird watching and sightseeing. I am a member of the Planning Board as well as a consultant for the new town park. We support many local charities and basically love our little town.

Jeff Grant purchased this house in 2017

Why Jeff Grant chose Gouldsboro

We have taken care of this home and its owners for many years. When the opportunity to purchase it came up this past Winter, we jumped at the occasion. We are unable to move in at this time due to my business needs and have decided to share with others.

What makes this house unique

We have both always loved the idyllic nature of this home, being the last house on our road. We both grew up here on the coast but, until you spend an evening listening to the beach rocks lapping the shore to the spectacular sunrises,you haven't experienced "the way life should be".

Any closer to the water and you’d get wet! Beautiful extremely clean well furnished vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Quiet away from it all very private home. Lobster festival and fireworks in winter harbor was a nice surprise. Hiking in Acadia, taking a ferry to Bar Harbor, trail running, and relaxing on deck were highlights of our trip. We hope to return to this part of Maine someday and definitely rent This house again.

Beautiful house in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and 13 year old twins loved staying at this house. We were only there for two nights but enjoyed every minute. The house is close to the Schoodic portion of the Acadia National Park. We rented bikes and rode the loop one day. We also went to The Lobstore seafood market and made our own lobster dinner. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed playing cards each evening on the porch or the kitchen table. We were all amazed by the amount of stars including planets and satellites as well as the Milky Way that we could see right from the porch. Beautiful! The rocks on the beach in front of this house are stacked quite high. We made our way over them and enjoyed sitting out on the rocky ledges. The kids even jumped in the water despite the cold water temperature. All linens were provided and washer and dryer were appreciated. Enough paper products for our short stay were provided. Remember to bring shampoo, conditioner and soap as none was provided. Would definitely stay here again. We loved this area!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive or day on the trail, come back to where the land ends and the ocean begins. Away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and Ellsworth, past a fishing village at the end of a dirt road, Ledgeview offers peace and quiet and rugged beauty. The rabbits were pretty cute too. While it’s a longer drive to Acadia than we would have liked, coming back to the beauty and solitude was worth it. It doesn’t get much better than sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee in the early morning watching the lobster boats or spying dolphins and seals at the end of the day while enjoying an IPA or whisky.

The house was as described and very clean. Jeff was very responsive and helpful. A couple of good restaurants nearby; the jazz quartet Thursday night bath the Pickled Wrinkle was a blast! Lots of light in every of room. And quiet.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Great location tucked in the woods and right on the water. Master and living room have amazing water views where you can watch the lobster boats working each morning. Minutes from Winter & Birch Harbor (restaurants, groceries, shopping, bike rentals), and minutes from the Schoodic portion of Acadia. We'd definitely return!

Awesome, secluded beach house with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

Our family and another shared the home. It was spacious, comfortable and incredibly clean. I especially appreciated having access to laundry as we were a week into vacationing.

The kitchen is well stocked and even has everything needed to cook lobster at home. The kids (ages 4-14) were climbing the rocks in the beach every morning and evening and came home with an awesome assortment of shells and sea glass.

The property is super quiet and sleeping is awesome when you open the windows to hear the waves crash on the shore.

I would 100% recommend this property .
