Bright and beautiful!
We felt right at home in this quaint and beautiful little house. We had everything we needed to make us comfortable. Extra-comfy beds and comforters for best sleep, too. There are so many places to visit and so many things to do nearby. Great restaurants like the Pickled Wrinkle and Crocker House (Hancock), Schoodic Point for hiking, biking, and picnicking, Grindstone Neck for rocky beaches, of course--the golf course with ocean views, Acadia on Mt Desert Island, 180 degree view of the coast from Pigeon Hill in Steuben, the cozy library, the beautiful harbor villages. Need to stay longer to fit in more fun times, like a ferry to Bar Harbor or a boat ride in Blue Hill. Next time! Perfect peaceful spot for a relaxing stay.
Beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world
This was a beautiful, comfortable home for our family of four. My parents came to visit and there was plenty of room for all of us. We loved exploring Winter Harbor and the Schoodic peninsula--such incredible beauty without the crowds of Mount Desert Island.
Loved the house. Very comfortable and close to town and activities
House was very comfortable and addition added gave extra space to relax and watch sun rise. House was well equipped with dishes and linens so we did not have to pack our own items. We loved our relaxing stay in Winter Harbor.
We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Captain Bickford’s. Hope to see you again!
Very relaxing and peaceful. Home is very well maintained. Great view of harbor ! The owner is very nice and takes great pride in this home and his community.
Second visit was as wonderful as the first
Beautifully restored, historic house makes you feel a real part of this charming, low-key, friendly town. The proximity to Schoodic Point for biking, birding, photography, and ocean watching is wonderful. We didn't even go to Acadia on MDI this year - Schoodic has what we value most (beauty, outdoor activities) without the crowds.
The Perfect Place
The lovely old, yet quite modern, Captain Bickford House in Winter Harbor was an ideal place to see all the sights, yet have a nice, quiet place to come "home" to after a busy day of seeing Mid-Coast and Downeast Maine. Acadia National Park is a 45-minute drive away, but you have your own piece of it just 5 minutes away in the Schoodic Peninsula - a much more peaceful, relaxed and enjoyable place to be. Add to that the loads of galleries and artists, stunning views around every bend, and a major airport (Bangor) only an hour away, and this is the ideal place to be!
P.S. Be sure to walk over to Chase's for breakfast (or lunch or dinner) for some of the best blueberry pancakes this side of the Mississippi!
