Owls Head Maine Home For Sale -- $1.5 MIllion

Okay.....this is a nice location....and the views really are impressive.

But $1.5 million?

You could build a new house in the general area for about half this price. Plus, this house was built in 1967.

Granted, it may not be oceanfront. But I think oceanfront is overrated anyway.

Condominium owners sue Samoset

Now isn't that special :)

The Samoset is going down. It may not be today, this summer or next year. But we're ina Depression...and in the last Depression the Samoset went down too.

They're now a two season resort, with about half the payroll. But the "high rollers" are not golfing anymore.....I've passed the resort 6 or 7 times in the past week or so....the weather has been breathtaking....and no one is on the golfers.

If they turned the Samoset into a would probably make it. But that won't happen on the coast of Maine.....believe me.
