HOME TOUR: THE VINALHAVEN HEADQUARTERS OF MARSTON HOUSE
We had heard the stories, we had studied the maps, and we had endlessly daydreamed about our first step ashore after the hour-and-15-minute ferry trip across West Penobscot Bay.
This summer, The Maryn traveled to Vinalhaven, Maine, a tiny island community that’s long been home to fleets of fishermen and -women, and that’s more recently also housed a summertime colony of artists, academics, and other creative types, including the late Pop Art icon Robert Indiana.
We had been invited to this rough, gorgeous, idyllically otherworldly place by a pair of longtime locals, Sharon and Paul Mrozinski—the owners of Marston House, an antiques shop and architectural design project—for a two-day tour of their lovingly renovated late-19th-century home.
This is the story of our trip to Sharon and Paul’s Vinalhaven hideaway, where the tidal waters rush by on three sides.
