Author Bio

Marie C. Taylor, an attorney, lives in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts with her husband, Dick tenEyck, and Kelley, their 4 year old Golden Retriever. Taylor was raised in Needham, Massachusetts and received a BA in Economics from Albertus Magnus College (New Haven, CT), and a JD from Suffolk University Law School (Boston, MA). She works as co-director of a non-profit corporation.

Marie, Kelley, and DickTaylor first visited Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park when her sister and brother-in-law moved to Surry, Maine in the early 1970’s. Her brother-in-law worked for a local airline which generously provided relatives free rides, space permitting, to visit their airline employed relatives in Maine.

Her sister and brother-in-law’s home was a spacious apartment in a large house which overlooked Contention Cove in Surry. Whenever Taylor came to visit, a trip over to Acadia was often on the itinerary, as was a lobster dinner. They usually bought the lobsters at a small general store in Salisbury Cove and then headed back home to eat them at the apartment.

When Taylor and her husband married in the early ’80’s, she thought it would be fun to introduce him to Maine. They stayed in a little cottage on Salisbury Cove, since Taylor had remembered the area as being very pretty and also just a short ride from Acadia National Park and the town of Bar Harbor. They have been returning to the area every year since to celebrate their wedding anniversary.

Things have changed, however, over the years. The house where her sister and brother-in-law lived has become the Surry Inn with their living room and kitchen now entry rooms for the restaurant. The general store in Salisbury Cove has been converted into condominiums. But, best of all, from Taylor’s point of view, insulation has been added to the little cottage at Edgewater Motel and Cottages in Salisbury Cove where she and her husband stay. Now, even on those really cold Maine nights, it is toasty warm inside!
