Prospect Harbor house description

Perfect and charming three-bedroom just completely rebuilt in knotty pine interior and shingled cottage exterior. New appliances, jotul propane stove, washer and dryer. On 5+ private and well-wooded acres with 293 +/- feet of gorgeous smooth, flat ledge water front on Grand Marsh Bay. This is what everyone dreams of finding when they think of the coast of Maine.

Two tandem kayaks and four mountain/hybrid bikes come with the rental property. Enjoy the natural beauty and wildlife of Corea Heath-Grand Marsh protected areas. Paddle to the salt marsh and explore its winding channel. Count great blue herons. Watch bald eagles and osprey flying overhead. Spot a seal at high-tide. Swim off the rocks by the house, at two nearby [rare] sand beaches, or warmer, freshwater at Jone's Pond picnic area. Bike the loop-road through nearby Acadia National Park's Schoodic portion. Explore Downeast Maine's historic towns and villages.

Enjoy summer-fall concerts, art exhibits, and performances.


Visit Acadia National Park - Schoodic Peninsula: The only section of Acadia located on the mainland, the park comprises a loop that begins in Winter Harbor following the coast ending at Birch Harbor. Just inside Acadia's boundaries is a picnic area with tables and grills. Picnic surrounded by wild roses, explore the rocks along the shore, watch sailboats tack across the waters while you eat. - Bike to Schoodic Point. Biking in Maine is great, but this small stretch of road is extraordinary. The Schoodic Section of Acadia has a one-way loop road that hugs the coast through the Park. - Hike to the top of Schoodic Head. Numerous trails lead to extraordinary views from Schoodic's 400 ft summit. In addition, to a 360-degree survey of Downeast Maine this small peak overlooking the Atlantic exposes visitors to a sub-alpine ecological zone. Dwarf vegetation and low-bush blueberry hug the thin, rocky soil. Cross the tidal land-bridge to Little Moose Island.

Daytrip in Rustic Downeast Maine. : Drive along the forty-mile Acadia Scenic Byway. Explore winter Harbor and the grand Victorian 'cottages' of Grindstone Neck. Or, cruise the last stretch of coastal Route 1 in the United States. Pass through the quiet coastal towns of Stueben, Jonesport, and Machias. Enjoy endless views and rolling blueberry barrens. Some say, Helen's in Machias makes the best blueberry pies in the USA. Take an inland route home passing through historic Cherryfield and other small towns. Visit nearby Bartlett Maine Estate Winery for a tasting. - There are at least five bikes included with the property any given time, often more. They are high quality mountain and hybrid bikes including Gary Fisher, Cannondale, Marin, Schwinn, and others. The bikes are suitable for teens through adults. Helmets are available for use. We also have a bike trailer for two toddlers - please bring helmets. Be sure to bring your own bike rack - the bikes can be taken to Acadia park and other great riding locations.

Drive or Take the Ferry to Mt. Desert Island.: A passenger ferry connects Winter Harbor and Bar Harbor on Mt. Desert Island. The Island Explorer bus service shuttles passengers free-of-charge to numerous destinations throughout Acadia National Park and across the Island. This service also operate between Winter Harbor-Birch Harbor-Prospect Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula. - The town of Bar Harbor has great energy. It offers a large number of independent shops and restaurants. The dining holds its own with any major city. It is a commercial, yet charming town with an active daytime crowd and equally active nightlife. Curiosities like the Whale Museum make Bar Harbor an excellent place to visit. - Drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia Nation Park and see the entire region. - Two Ocean Kayak sit-on-top boats may be used in the Bay or taken to another beautiful paddling spot. Life jackets for adults and one child's life jacket are available for use. Light weight paddles are included. Roof rack NOT provided.
