The Dove Way dream dates back to 2004 when Rob and Samantha first met in Hoboken, New Jersey. Rob, a native of Abington, Massachusetts, and Samantha, a Philadelphian from birth, had spent many years living in cities throughout the Northeast. They always dreamed of owning a quiet private property on many acres that they could develop, personalize, and share with the world.
Rob dreamed of finding a home in the Maine woods where he could build a private oasis filled with secret gardens, hidden paths, lots of space for games and adventure, and even a secret treehouse or two.
Sam’s dreams were quite different at first. She’d always envisioned her dream vacation home as a bungalow tucked away on a tropical beach. But it turned out that being near water was what was most important to her, so a pristine lakeside nest in the mountains of Maine would be just the thing. When she and Rob visited their friends at Granite Ridge Estate & Barn in 2013, they knew they’d found the location in the adorable town of Norway, Maine to realize their dreams.
They soon found Dove Way and were immediately enchanted by this stunning year-round waterfront home on Lake Pennesseewassee. The property is beautifully sited on 9 acres with views of the mountains and access to more than 150 feet of unspoiled lakefront. Dove Way offered a vast blank canvas for Rob and a peaceful oasis for Sam. So they made their move and made Dove Way a part of their family in 2016.
