Property description

Located on the outskirts of the quintessential fishing village of Winter Harbor, minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park on Schoodic Peninsula, our fully restored New England Barn offers a delightful retreat for your Maine vacation.

The antique furnishings create a cozy atmosphere in the open studio layout, while the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathroom makes your visit effortless. In addition to the two-person antique bed on the first floor and the double size pull-out sofa bed, the loft sleeps one. The dining area seats six.

Throughout the space, bookshelves are filled with reading for quiet times, and collectable art and quilts decorate the walls. The living area faces French doors, which lead to a natural stone patio and a large, private back yard.

At the front of the barn, an attached screened-in porch with dining table and chairs encourages 'al fresco' dining. The adventurous among you are welcome to open the cot there and savor the gentle sounds of the summer evening while drifting off to sleep. A Maine tradition!!

Our closest neighbor is an organic farm where you can purchase just-picked produce to accompany your fresh lobster dinner. Visit the unique farm animals, including cashmere goats and Norwegian Fjords.

This property is just a half-mile from Route One, which leads you antiquing up and down the coast, through seaside villages with inspiring views. Or, kayak, hike or bicycle in nearby Acadia National Park/Schoodic Peninsula Section. Just across the bay from it's busier Bar Harbor cousin, this section of the national park affords a relaxed and quiet retreat from the cares of the world. Wildlife abounds with frequent sighting's of eagles, loons, Canada Geese, deer and more!

Nearby 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, one of the nation's oldest golf courses (with ocean views from every hole) and a few bakeries and small restaurants. 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. On Tuesday mornings, join in the fun at the local farmer's market.

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.
