Welcome to Deep Cove, Port Clyde
Our family’s relationship with the house on Glenmere Road, in Port Clyde on the St. George peninsula begins with its purchase by my grandfather, Dr. Walter (Wally) D. Hall in 1907. Family lore has it that our grandfather and his father, Dr. Walter L. Hall, were sailing the coast of Maine and spied the large farmhouse sitting atop a hill overlooking Muscongus Bay at the mouth of the St. George River. Wally purchased the house with its land, the land on the water side of Glenmere Road, and a 16 acre parcel known as the “Widows Woodlot” out in back. A large barn behind the house rounded out the total purchase. It was named Deep Cove after the body of water just off shore. The photo above was taken around the time the property was purchased.
For the next 100 years the house welcomed four generations of the Hall/Sibley family and their friends. Whether Deep Cove was occupied year-round or just during the summer, the memories that we have and share with family and friends make it a very special place for all of us. If you have visited in the past we hope you stop by this summer to reminisce and sign a guest book, or if you are a “new” friend, we hope that you, too, venture down the peninsula to Deep Cove and keep the traditions going. We look forward to seeing you.
And while you’re visiting you can take advantage of the area’s sights and activities.
