Winter Harbor barn description

Minutes away from the entrance to Acadia National Park on Schoodic Peninsula, our fully restored New England Barn is appointed in antique furnishings to create a cozy atmosphere for your summer vacation. A gas fired woodstove creates a mellow atmosphere in the open studio layout of our cottage, and the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathroom makes your visit to Maine effortless. A loft sleeps one in addition to the two person antique bed on the first floor and a pull-out queen size sofa bed will comfortably accommodates two more. Bookshelves are filled with reading for quiet times, and collectable art and quilts decorate the walls. The dining room area seats six, and the living room area faces the French doors leading to the natural stone patio and back lawn. An attached screened in porch with dining table and chairs encourages 'al fresco' dining, or open the cot and savor the gentle sounds of a summer evening as you drift off to sleep. A Maine tradition!! Our closest neighbor is an organic farm where you can purchase just picked produce to accompany your fresh lobster dinner, or join in the fun at the local farmer's market on Tuesday mornings. This property is just a half-mile from Route One, which leads you antiquing up and down the coast, through seaside villages with inspiring views. Or, kayak, hike or bicycle in nearby Acadia National Park/Schoodic Peninsula Section. Just across the bay from it's busier Bar Harbor cousin, our location affords a relaxed and quiet retreat from the cares of the world. Wildlife abounds with frequent siting's of eagles, loons, Canada Geese, deer and more! Buy your lobsters fresh from the boat at the local dock, or take the ferry (in season) to Bar Harbor for a traditional lobstah roll and chowdah lunch. Nearby downtown Winter Harbor boasts an old fashioned 5 and 10 (if they don't have it, you don't need it), a small grocery store and a post office. For a quiet week of natural beauty and an opportunity to reconnect with nature at Acadia National Park, or dining and shopping in busy Bar Harbor, returning to this unique property will surely become a summer tradition!

Although the Bangor Maine airport is closest to Winter Harbor, many travelers fly into Manchester NH on Southwest Airlines, or Portland Maine on Air Tran, both of which offer competitive pricing due to more competition.
