Rental House Renovations & Upgrades

A Letter from the Owner

Lisa and I have 5 children ages 18 to 28! We enjoy Maine and visit for several weeks each year. However, it is you, our rental guests who are providing income which we, in turn, are reinvesting in improvements to the Beach Surf Property. Last year we spent $100,000 and took in $20,000 Not a great business return but we love the house so much more and hope you will also.
Thank you
