The Farmhouse, built in the 1880s, is located on 7 acres on the peninsula of Grindstone Neck in Winter Harbor, ME. It is adjacent to the historic 9 hole Grindstone Neck golf course and overlooks Winter Harbor and Schoodic Point.
The front of the Farmhouse features a beautiful, large porch perfect for watching the sunrise over the Harbor with morning coffee, relaxing between activities, reading, doing puzzles, or enjoying a cocktail at the end of a busy day exploring the area.
The back of the house features a large sunroom facing west which captures the afternoon sun and has steps leading down to the large back yard. There are two outdoor tables and chairs in back yard and a fire pit for warming up on chilly nights and roasting marshmallows for s’mores.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything needed to cook for a family, including spices! Off the kitchen is the second bathroom, and an office/laundry area. From there you access the huge, original Barn which has plenty of storage space for your bikes and golf clubs.
The large open dining/living room area has a beautiful picture window overlooking the harbor and golf course. There is plenty of seating, including a cozy nook in front of the window with a rocker and wing chair.
The master bedroom and bath is off the living room on the main floor. There are two bedrooms upstairs with guest beds.
The Farmhouse is located adjacent to the historic 9-hole Grindstone Neck Golf Course. It has stunning water views from every hole, reasonable greens fees and tee times are generally not required. Everything to make a golfer's vacation a dream!
The small town of Winter Harbor is within a 10 minute walk where you will find multiple eateries, a library, antiques, galleries, and the Winter Harbor 5&10 once featured in the Smithsonian magazine. It they don't sell it, you don't need it!
The entrance to Acadia National Park on Schoodic is just 5 minutes away. The Schoodic Peninsula offers a wide array of opportunities for discovering Maine’s rugged coast without all the congestion of Mount Desert Island.
A six-mile, one-way loop road offers views of lighthouses, seabirds, and forested islands and multiple vehicle turnouts provide opportunities to stop and enjoy the scenery. Follow the road to Schoodic Point, a windswept, rocky point providing spectacular views of Mount Desert Island.
Cyclists and hikers will enjoy riding the Schoodic Loop Road and the 8.3 miles of new hiking/bike paths opened by the Park in 2015.
Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor and the major part of Acadia National Park, is about an hour's drive by car. For a more serene and picturesque way to travel there though, there are two Winter Harbor - Bar Harbor ferries operating daily from Memorial Day to Columbus day.
