About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Live like the locals in our stunning seaside community!

This newly renovated Captains Cottage which overlooks Frenchmans Bay with stunning views of Cadillac Mountain has been a part of our family for 4 generations, and is now ready for your arrival. We have carefully maintained the integrity of what the home of a Boat Captain, on the coast of Maine is really like, while providing you with all of the modern amenities. Sleeping 6 comfortably this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home features on-site washer & dryer, 3 car parking, a backyard with BBQ grill and room for horseshoes or just relax and watch the sunsets. Walking distance to restaurants, grocery store, Bar Harbor Ferry, post office, and of course our store, the Winter Harbor 5 &10.

Bring your bike(rentals are available in the area)and ride around our lovely town or take a trip around Schoodic point. This is also a great place to go kayaking. Paddle out to an offshore island or just meander along the shore and inlets. The is also a 9 hole golf course in town and every hole has a view of the ocean.

Winter Harbor is a working fishing community and summer playground. We are located on the tip of the Schoodic Peninsula at the entrance to Acadia National Park, Schoodic Section, a must see for those visiting Maine. Visit us in August and experience the Annual Lobster Festival on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Where live music, a craft fair, parade, boat races & of course lobsters are the main event and shut down the town streets for the event.

The Schoodic section of Acadia National Park is home to the Schoodic Education and Research Center. This is the only mainland section of Acadia National Park and is known for it's rocky point where during storms the waves can produce 60ft tall walls of ocean spray.
Around the first 2 weeks of August the area host the Schoodic Arts festival (check their web site for exact dates).

The Schoodic peninsula is also the home to many local crafts people and artists. We have everything from jewelry made of sea glass to Art galleries with fine paintings.

Quote from Arthur Frommer
' I prefer going to a local real estate broker, one with limited inventory that they have themselves inspected. By simply accessing the internet, and scanning the options in a town you have chosen, you have a good chance to find a reputable agent, as I recently did. He was Peter Drinkwater of the small but exquisite waterfront town of Winter Harbor, Maine, who--with his wife Sandy--owns the Captain Bickford House (where we stayed) and also finds other such house rentals for persons calling or inquiring about his main property (P.O. Box 340, Winter Harbor, Maine 04693, 207/963-2710, wh5n10@myfairpoint.net).'
