Charming 1 Bedroom, 1 full bath Cottage located on a two acre on "owner occupied'" property with woods and garden views.

Minutes from Acadia National Park 'Schoodic Point' and the famous Grindstone Neck. Bike or walk to town where you can enjoy shops, restaurants, galleries and all the sites.

Enjoy the wonderful picturesque 45 minute ferry ride to Bar Harbor from the town dock and enjoy the day site-seeing, shopping, people watching, dining, and all that Bar Harbor has to offer.

Just a short walk to the beach where you can kayak, picnic and watch the Cadillac Mountain sunsets. Nearby golf course with spectacular harbor and ocean views, with pink granite cliffs.

Cottage is perfect for a couple who wants a quiet, cozy place to relax, but be close enough to all local activities and Acadia National Park's Schoodic Peninsula.

A coastal Maine vacation at its best! A visit to the Schoodic Peninsula will allow you to get up close to the crashing surf of the rocky coast. Enjoy hiking the trails of Acadia National Park right here at Schoodic, sea kayaking and sailing Frenchman's Bay, along with biking, bird watching, and playing at a beautiful public golf course surrounded by pink granite and views of the ocean.

A vibrant art culture, including galleries, studios and shops, the quaint fishing villages of Winter Harbor, Corea, Bunkers Wharf, Prospect Harbor are all close by.

Schoodic Arts for All Center hosts art exhibits, concerts and performances almost every evening throughout the summer and early fall.

The Winter Harbor Lobster Festival in August is a world renown lobster fest and one of the largest Maine lobster festivals that you can't afford to miss!

The Schoodic Scenic Byway is 29 miles in length and travels through our community and into the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park. On this drive you will witness the unspoiled landscape that makes our side of Acadia National Park truly the 'Way Life Should Be'.

You will see lobster boats, lighthouses and Islands off in the distance. Travel through the small villages and towns of Sullivan, Gouldsboro, Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and of course our village of Winter Harbor to enjoy the local flavor of our artist studios, downtown shops, restaurants and so much more!

Cozy Cottage in woodsy setting

  • 5 of 5

We were on a girl's getaway to Acadia National Park in Maine and we stayed in this adorable cottage that was perfect for us. It is nestled in a woodsy environment, near the water so we could walk or drive to see the sun set on the water. We could see a deer and a fat rabbit in the yard as we drank our morning coffee! The cottage has everything one would need and it is spotlessly clean. It is furnished tastefully and comfortably. We received very helpful advice from the rental agent about how to get there, and what to see and do in this gorgeous area. We highly recommend this cute cottage as an ideal place to enjoy the area and relax.

A cozy cottage in lovely Winter Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Emily's cottage was perfect for our three week stay in Winter Harbor. It is well laid out, comfortable and functional. The bedroom and dining area look out at a well-tended garden in front of the woods. We were visited by hummingbirds, a porcupine and a rabbit, as well as multiple red squirrels. The area is quiet but within walking distance of the small commercial center of Winter Harbor and within driving distance of the Schoodic division of Acadia National Park. The gas fire in the sitting/dining area was perfect to take the chill off in the mornings. The kitchen is reasonably well equipped, especially for guests who stay only a few days. We very much appreciated Emily replacing the tea kettle when it sprang a leak. As longer term renters, we would have enjoyed a few additions to the kitchen, such as a colander and larger cooking utensils. We also would have enjoyed a reading light in the sitting/dining area. But overall, very happy with our stay and hoping to return.

Beautiful & Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for three short days at this property. The cottage itself was centrally located and well appointed with all you could need. The gardens were so beautiful in full bloom. Laura and Emily were so easy to work with and very helpful. Be sure to stop at JM Gerrish and the 5 and dime in town, they aren't to be missed.

This has nothing to do with the property experience but is more of a travel tip, Winter Harbor was originally named Mosquito Bay - plan accordingly. And, remember you are in a national park, cell service is spotty. Luckily Emily offers wi-fi.

Thank you Emily and Laura for making our holiday weekend! We would stay here again in a minute.

The location is nice and quiet but far from Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island.

  • 3 of 5

It would be cozy for two but as we were three, with our daughter on the pullout couch in the living room, it was small.
