Wow! I'll say it again, Wow!
This house is a gem! It's in a beautiful location right on the shore, has a great backyard and a hot tub! The interior is extremely clean and beautifully decorated. It has a very nice kitchen, a spectacular 6 head shower and a wonderful patio to watch the sunset. Also, there is a large enclosed screened porch that is great on a rainy day. This house really has everything! We were pleasantly surprised by how large the house is and how it had so much more than we expected.
The house is a 5 minute drive into Winter Harbor where you can go for groceries and has a few restaurants. Schoodic is nearby if you want to drive the coastline which is a must. We took a 2 hour drive to Campobello Island while we were here. It was a great day trip but remember your passport--it's in Canada.
This house is super special and invites relaxation. We did not want to leave and are hoping to return. We really can't say enough nice things about it!
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Peaceful, serene and beautiful
This property was 100 times better than described in the description offered by HomeAway. The owners of this property share their love of their home in every aspect: high end appliances, the very best cookware, comfortable beds and furniture. The shower is awesome! The view in a secluded location with the rocky shoreline is more beautiful than Schoodic Point! The hot tub, an unexpected but very welcome addition, puts this home over the top. We enjoyed every minute. We took advantage of the best gourmet kitchen I have ever had the pleasure to cook in and the nearby Lob Store's fresh fish selections every day. We sincerely hope to return in the future.
Beautiful views and close to Schoodic
This home was perfect for our family of five. We enjoyed the secluded property with beautiful views. It was a perfect spot to enjoy Acadia without staying with the throngs of people in Bar Harbor. It is very close to the small town of Winter Harbor which has some good restraunts and a grocery store. Schoodic is a must see and is very close to the property. Mount Desert Island is about an hour away by car or there is a ferry you can take that takes about 40 minutes. You won't regret staying at this home away from home.
Even more beautiful than on the pictures !
The house is beautifully decorated, very clean and the kitchen equipped with all kinds of utensils, cookware and bakeware that are very handy when you go as a family. Wonderful master shower too. There is plenty of space/seats for everybody inside and outside.
As it says it is very private with stairs going down on the rocks by the ocean with nobody else but the occasional lobster boat going by. There is a lobster co op in town with good prices. The Schoodic peninsula road is great to ride your bycicle on as it is a 2-lane one way road with just slight inclines and gorgeous views. Beware though not to park on the side even on sandy areas as we got a ticket !
If you are planning lots of visits to Mount Desert Island and the Acadia park, count on an hour drive to get there. Otherwise wonderful relaxing vacation spot
If you're looking for a quiet but luxurious getaway, in a small town setting, but still with access for a day trip or three to Bar Harbor, you've found you're place. Homey and comfortable, fully stocked, and some luxuries thrown in, this home has a perfect view across the water at Cad Mtn and can easily accommodate a larger group. The owners are a delight as well. Search no more - book this home and you won't be disappointed- we intend to return!
Winter Harbor is home to the Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park. You can enjoy miles of shoreline, bike paths, hiking trails, and even explore Little Moose Island if you time it with the tides. The town is both 'a quiet fishing village' & 'coastal tourist destination.' For picnics or sunsets, be sure to make time for both Schoodic Point and Frasier Point.
