Property description

Located in the quintessential Maine fishing village of Winter Harbor, a few miles from the entrance of Acadia National Park/Schoodic Peninsula, a restored antique farmhouse with modern conveniences awaits your arrival. Though close to everything Winter Harbor has to offer -- including one of the oldest golf courses in the nation, with water views from every hole -- this retreat feels like your private getaway destination.

The loft master bedroom and generous first floor guest room together sleep five. The chef's kitchen is appointed with new appliances and a pass through bar/counter, which makes informal serving easy and fun. Additionally, the formal dining area seats six. The comfortable Asian inspired decor blends easily with farmhouse antiques, reflecting the mariner history of the coast of Maine. Outside, the small porch leads to a wrap-around lawn, accented with mature landscaping.

Schoodic Peninsula is the perfect location for your summer outdoor vacation. Kayak, hike or bicycle in nearby Acadia National Park/Schoodic Peninsula Section. Just across the bay from its busier Bar Harbor cousin, Winter Harbor affords a relaxed and quiet retreat from the cares of the world. Wildlife abounds, with frequent sightings 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. 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, a post office, a community theatre, and a few small bakeries and restaurants.

The closest airport is Bar Harbor (BHB), and the second closest is Bangor International (BGR). More competitive prices can be secured by flying into Portland (PWM) or Manchester NH (MHT).

Bar Harbor is a 30 minute ferry ride or a 40 miles drive by car.
