This season spend your vacation on the ocean overlooking Henry’s Cove in Winter Harbor with all the amenities nearby—5-minute walk to the center of Winter Harbor where art galleries, antique stores, and a 5&10 will bring you back to a simpler life. A nearby walk leads you to the working Inner Harbor where fishing boats come and go. How can it be better! Just relax! Let the town work its magic on you. Grindstone Neck, Schoodic Point, Frazer’s Point, and Schoodic Head are all destination points of interest. Plus, from the opposite shore of Henry’s Cove, a ferry travels daily to downtown Bar Harbor passing by Mark Island with a historic lighthouse, uninhabited Ironbound Island, and the Porcupine Islands all in Frenchman’s Bay. In the distance, Cadillac Mountain is the highlight of Bar Harbor.
The house at the end of School Street has a wide deck overlooking the tidal pools and granite ledges. Bird watchers, kayakers, boaters, cyclists, hikers, photographers, and wanderers of all types will have a wonderful time watching the sea birds including eagles and osprey, smelling the native pine trees and wild roses, and feeling the cool of the inevitable change in weather as the tide comes in and goes out.
The ranch-style house provides sleeping for 6 (maximum 9 including sofa bed and roll away) with relaxing living and dining room areas crowned with magnificent picture windows looking out on to Henry’s Cove and beyond. The galley-type kitchen has modern appliances; the living area has cable TV and a phone for local calls. The local grocery store, also within walking distance, has your haddock filets for dinner and the local fishermen’s co-op has the lobsters.
The property is 1 1/2 acres including woods along 300+ feet of shoreline.
Life is too short not to visit Winter Harbor, a beautiful area of the Maine coast off the beaten track but right next door.
