About Scott Strohmeyer
Obviously the photo is not of Scott, the owner, Scott. I am Alison, the local contact who will greet you and answer any questions you might have. You can reach me at 207-460-6828. (texts are a great form of communication for me) I look forward to meeting you.
Why Scott Strohmeyer chose Gouldsboro
This property is not far from basic needs but secluded enough to be a real hideaway. It is a fantastic home base for exploring or the perfect place for some serious down time. Kick those feet up and watch the boats go by as you listen to the gulls and the rolling or crashing waves.
What makes this House unique
Stunning views. Privately located but close enough to local restaurants, gas station, grocery stores. Big house in good condition and the kitchen has all the equipment you need to prepare your own meals. With a fire pit and adirondack chairs gathering together at the end of a day of exploration is so relaxing.

Beauty by the shore
We stayed at Lobster Lodge for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house setup was perfect for our family of 7 as it provided a good amount of privacy for everybody. My husband and 3 children had our own "wing" as the 3rd floor where the kids stayed is only accessible from the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. This gave my mother and brother-in-law their own rooms and we could keep the kids contained at bedtime. Everybody loved exploring the coastline and fire pits in the evening. We would definitely go back!
Beautiful vacation spot!
The house was absolutely perfect. The view of the ocean was beautiful. Nice, peaceful location. Would rent it again in a heartbeat!
A peaceful retreat in a beautiful place
Our family of 6, plus 1 stayed in Lobster Lodge for a week in August. It was just lovely with an amazing view of the water where we watched the porpoise play one evening and the bunny visit daily. The house is very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds. The third floor bedrooms are only accessible by going through the master bedroom on the second floor so may be best suited to younger children although our older sons stayed up there and retired later than we did without waking us. We loved being on the quiet side of Acadia, just 10 min from the park and Winter Harbor. We rented bikes and rode all through the park, visited the education center and hiked a beautiful trail. We enjoyed taking the ferry over to Bar Harbor one day and the pretty drive on others, both about an hour. Alison is wonderful to work with and very responsive! Would definitely recommend to others and stay again!
We had a wonderful week at Lobster Lodge. Great house, great location, and great weather. Very clean and welcoming. Every thing a family needs and is centrally located to many activities. We are coming back in 2018 - already booked!
Great place to relax.
Property is well appointed and well managed. This was my second time visiting.
What a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, perfect for quiet nights, yet close enough to take the ferry to Bar Harbor. Fresh seafood abound. Thanks Alison for making our stay so enjoyable. Close to national park, shopping, and local eats. Beautiful landscapes everywhere you look.
Prospect Harbor is located on the scenic Schoodic Peninsula, home of the 'quite' side of Acadia National Park. Schoodic Point includes an 11 mile bike/car route where the crashing surf is simply majestic. Newly added hiking and biking trails offer miles of beautiful exploring. Hiking on the carriage trails or on the meandering foot paths. Leisurely or seriously steep there is something for everyone. Within the park is the Schoodic Institute which often offers classes and retreats. There is amazing bird watching within the park and around the area where you can see Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Osprey, Egrets and more. You might catch the playful river otters making their way from shore to stream at dusk or dawn. You can also watch the basking harbor seals at low tide on a sunny day.
Prospect Harbor is about one hour's drive from Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island home of Acadia National Park and where you will find fine dining and a plethora of shopping options. We are 23 miles from Ellsworth and about an hour and 15 minute drive from the Bangor Airport.
In Birch Harbor there is a convenience store where you can get some grocery items and they are also a liquor store and the only gas station on the peninsula. There is also a very lively pub called "The Pickled Wrinkle" where you can get pub fare and see some lively local bands.
Winter Harbor has an independent grocery store Winter Harbor Food Service which has a larger selection of food items and carries local goods. Both our local food stores close earlier than many are used to so pay attention to closing times! J.M. Gerrishes in Winter Harbor is a breakfast/lunch/ice cream parlor open daily in July/August (check hours for other times on their FB page). There is also Chase's Restaurant, The Fisherman's Galley, and The Salt Box. Schoodic Arts for All is located in several building in Winter Harbor and they offer a host of lively programs and showings.
Corea Lunch on the Wharf is a must visit for the best lobster roll ever. Or enjoy a lobster dinner while looking out over the boats in the harbor. For dessert try one of Wendy's famous Whoopie Pies! And check out the gallery with incredible black and white photos from a bygone era. While in Corea, stop in at Chapter Two a lovely gallery with Rosemary's gorgeous hooked Rugs and Garry's collection of good books as well as local artist's wares. They often have workshops and shows.
