'In ''The Story of Mount Desert Island'', Emily Morison Beck shares the tale of her father, historian, Samuel Eliot Morison who sailed around the west side of Mount Desert Island with a cousin: ''There they found the irresistible sheltering Sawyers Cove...The cove looks north across Blue Hill Bay and toward Pretty Marsh and Bartletts Island, all then totally wild and undeveloped.'' Today, Sawyers Cove offers 555'+/- shorefront with those same unspoiled views on 6.8+/- private acres with a sand and granite beachfront. A shoreside path leads to a shared dock and a tennis court that blends in nicely. Soil tested with elevated building sites among towering mature trees, woodland paths surrounded by ferns, and moss covered granite outcroppings. Electric and road in place. Still irresistibly beautiful'
