This quaint, former home of two generations of lobstermen, has been lovingly renovated, while maintaining many of its unique original details such as, the original wood floors, hand made kitchen cabinets and exterior sliding barn door.
The views of the working harbor offer the opportunity to observe the local fishermen, setting out to sea in the morning, and returning at the end of the day to unload their catch at the Corea Co-op.
The home's three bedrooms are on the second floor and are charmingly decorated. There are two twin beds in one ,a double bed in another and a queen bed in the master. All linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided. There is also a full bath (tub and shower) on this floor.
The first floor kitchen/dining and living area is open concept with beamed ceilings and a gas burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped and opens to the side deck, which has a view of the harbor. The rustic den, which is a converted barn with beamed cathedral ceilings, offers TV and DVD. The half bath is also on this floor, as is the laundry area.
Enjoy morning coffee and the glistening waters of the harbor and beyond from the deck. There is plenty of yard space for lawn games or relaxing under the apple tree.
We are New Englanders that recently moved from MA to RI. Corea is a very special place to us, since we fell in love with the house and the community years ago. The whole family enjoys time there, especially our grand son, Charley, who said, at age 5, 'Thank God for Maine!'.
Carol & Jack Stafford purchased this farmhouse in 1996
While vacationing at a local B&B, we were enchanted by the beauty, history and people of the peninsula. We happened by Apple Hill, and it was love at first sight. One cannot help but be in awe of the magnificent scenery of this area, while at the same time, inspired to explore and experience it.
Relax on the property, or stroll/bike the perimeter of the harbor, which horseshoes left by the local beach, where you can sit, if the tides right, or comb the beach for sea glass, unique shells and sea tossed stones. Continue past the beach to visit the Co-op.at the end of the road, where you can pick up lobsters, fresh off the boats. On the right side of the horseshoe, you can get to the wharfs that you see from the house. One of the wharfs, a 2 mins. walk from the house, is where you'll find The Wharf Gallery and Galley, mentioned in the May/June 2014 issue of Yankee Magazine as being 'The Best Lobster With a Sense of the Past' Classic. This side will also take you to Cranberry Island. The road to Cranberry Island opens up to picture post card scenery, with its breathtaking ocean views, crashing waves on the rocks and beckoning sand patches. Back up Corea Road are Chapter I, which features works by local artists and craftsmen and Chapter II, a book barn with a broad spectrum of used books for sale, which (lucky us!) was also written up in the same Yankee Magazine, Best of New England 2014'.
My family and I had a wonderful stay. We brought our dog along and she loved being able to play in the yard and take dips in the ocean. The town is charming with very friendly neighbors. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
We stayed at Apple Hill for an end of summer get away, and this is the perfect home and town to relax in! Such a beautiful location, across the street for a working Lobster boat harbor. The house is walking distance to all that Corea has to offer. The wharf (best lobster rolls), the beaches, nature paths, "secret beach" and more. Such a peaceful town.
We also went to Bar Harbor and Arcadia National park. Amazing views from Cadillac mountain and so much to explore. Bar harbor is such a fun way to spend a day too. Also Schoodic point was another great place to explore and have a picnic lunch.
The farm house is so comfortable, 3 bedrooms with plenty of room. The charm they have maintained with original details, like beams and floors makes it so iconic Maine.
You can't go wrong staying at Apple Hill, this home and Maine truly make you relax and unplug!
We felt immediately at ease at Apple Hill. The house is quintessential Corea -- ideal location, perfect blend of old and new, and so comfortable! Now that we've stayed in Corea, I don't see us staying anywhere else in Schoodic.
Don't miss: lunch at the Wharf Gallery & Grill (you can see it from the house), collecting shells and stones at nearby beaches, hiking Schoodic Head, swimming at Jones Pond, the ferry to Bar Harbor. My five year old said he slept better in Maine than at home! Ah, vacation. Thanks, Carol and Jack!
Corea is the place where my husband and his family made many happy vacation memories 40 years ago. We chose Apple Hill for its' rustic charm and great location. It provided all we needed to make new memoirs with our own family. We felt very comfortable there.The scenery and peacefulness are amazing. It's within walking distance to beautiful beaches, the wharf with its yummy lobster rolls , ice cream and pie, and the co-op where you can purchase fresh caught lobsters for a delicious meal. Walking out to Cranberry Point and later to the "secret beach" were memorable activities. It's just a short drive to Acadia and more beautiful scenery. We ventured into Winter Harbor for lunch at J.M. Gerrish's and fell in love with the blueberry pie! The Prospect Harbor Soap Company is also a recommended stop. Apple Hill takes you back to a time when life was simpler and you could sit back and relax.
We so enjoyed our stay at Apple Hill. The house is charming and comfortable - just like the surrounding area! This was the most peaceful place we have ever visited - the beautiful beaches just a short walk from the house were breathtaking. I contacted the owner regarding a sightseeing question, and she responded within 15 minutes - so helpful! We took a ferry from Winter Harbor to Bar Harbor - just a short drive from the house, and a great way to spend the day - beautiful view of Bar Harbor from the water. There is so much to see in this area. I highly recommend staying at Apple Hill - we loved it!
We found this VRBO to have everything we needed and was a welcomed retreat. We were eloping in Acadia, but wanted to stay away from the crowds of Bar Harbor. Carol was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and helpful with recommendations. It was especially nice to bring our dogs with us. We loved the layout of the home and the kitchen functioned well and was better equipped then most VRBO we have stayed in. The house was clean and comfortable. We had never been to Corea before, so it was fun the explore. The section of Acadia near by, is most definitely the path less traveled without any of the crowds of the main park. Wish we had more time to spend there and hope we make it back there again someday. Thank you Carol for sharing your home with us.
Explore our Schoodic Peninsula and its small fishing villages,wild coastline, spectacular vistas and unhurried pace! We're away from the tourist crowds but only a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island, the shops and galleries of Blue Hill, or historic sites such as F.D.R.'s home on Campobello Island. Located in the tranquil, Downeast lobster fishing village of Corea, overlooking one of the most picturesque harbors in Maine, islands and the open ocean places to sit and read, paint, just search the skies for a glimpse of a soaring eagle while watching the harbor from our deck. There are wild blueberries and blackberries to pick, if you're here when they're ripe. When hiking, you might come upon a hidden tidal bay and salt marshes which are terrific spots to bird watch.
