Winter Harbor house description

Breathtaking water views of the mountains of Acadia across the Harbor, views over Lighthouse Island out to the open Ocean, and even views of tranquil Mill Stream. Every single room in this spacious cottage (including the bathrooms and even the attached garage!) has at least one water view; many rooms have two water views, and the views from the breezy screened sun porch are amazing! Located just steps down the street from the Bar Harbor ferry dock and within easy walking distance of the art galleries, antique stores and restaurants of the scenic village of Winter Harbor. Nearby bike and kayak rentals make this the perfect place to explore the Schoodic Loop of Acadia National Park - and the Park entrance is less than a half mile away!

There's a reason we call this 'The Cook's Cottage' - a large and well equipped kitchen is at the center of this 1893 home. First floor master bedroom suite AND second floor master bedroom, plus two additional large bedrooms on the second floor. Two full bathrooms on the second floor, plus a half-bath on the first floor next to the living room. Spacious deck above garage, with access from upstairs MBR.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              Why the Owner Chose Winter Harbor:
              We purchased this cottage in 2010 because we love the Schoodic Peninsula. We have owned another home on Paul Bunyan Road in Corea since 2005.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Walk to the Winter Harbor Ferry and all the shops and galleries in Winter Harbor. Or enjoy the spectacular views from the 2nd floor deck.
