About Us


Greetings from Garry and Barbara Schwall

“We are excited to greet our old friends, and meet our new friends alike.”

Garry and Barbara hail from Long Island, New York. For 27 years, they lived in the small town of Blue Point, on the south shore of Long Island, about 50 miles east of NYC. Recently retired, Garry and Barbara each worked in the healthcare industry for over 3 decades, but have held a keen interest in the mid-coast for just as many years. In 1985, they honeymooned along the coast of Maine, through Kennebunkport, Camden and Bar Harbor, and fell in love with the charming, hospitable spirit of the area. Although they weren’t sure when, they knew that someday they would return to live here.

In 2014, Garry and Barbara relocated to Lincolnville. They thoroughly enjoy being near the water, so you can imagine that this quaint little town is the perfect fit. They have two sons, Ryan and Trevor, who look forward to each one of their Pine Grove Cottages visits. Pine Grove Cottages is also home to Garry & Barbara’s two beloved Shih tzus, Callie and Lexi, who are also enjoying the fresh air of Maine.

Both Garry and Barbara love meeting new people, and look forward to extending their hospitality to you. They’re committed to making sure your stay at Pine Grove is a special one, so if you have any questions about the area, they would be happy to supply a list of personal recommendations for things to see and do. Give them a call on 207-236-2929 or get in touch here.
