About Us

Joe and Althea Musetti

The Command Post, Seaweed and Deer Track were established by Joe Musetti and his wife Althea. After the years of working in the quarries, Joe, with the help of Althea, started building and renting cottages to vacationers visiting Mount Desert Island. From the Command Post, they would sit and wait to greet their tenants. Over the years, Joe and Althea made several good friends that they considered family. Several of their vacationers continue to visit the area and have been returning to stay at the same cabin for more than 40 years.

It is only fitting that we, the youngest grandchild of Joe and Althea, and her husband, son, and daughter, decided to keep the family tradition going, and continue to provide vacationers with a place to stay while visiting Mount Desert Island.

                  The location of the Command Post location was very deliberate; nestled in the middle of the granite quarries once worked daily by Joe and his sons. Today the Command Post, Seaweed and Deer Track and their many guests hold sway over the heart of Hall Quarry, maintaining a constant, vigilant watch over Somes Sound and a landscape where the mountains truly meet the sea.
