Recent Winter Harbor reviews

  • A small harbor town experience

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this home. It is centrally located to the town Winter Harbor. It is a short walk to the grocery store, 5 &10, post office, ice cream shop, harbor and ferry. There are two restaurants almost next door. There is a seafood vendor a half mile from the house, along with a smoked seafood vendor as well. We cooked all of our meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed the sea breeze that came through the windows of the house. We spent a few afternoons at Grindstone Neck watching the waves in the harbor. We spent a day biking Schoodic Point (part of Acadia National Park) and a day over in Bar Harbor by taking the short ferry ride between Winter Harbor and Bar Harbor. There is public transportation once you are in Bar Harbor to further explore Acadia National Park if you choose. My husband and I have been to this area many times and always find plenty to do in the area. If you enjoy wines, make sure to stop at Bartlett for a sampling of fruit wines from bone dry to very sweet."

  • great views, peaceful setting, and room for the entire family

    "Cook's Cottage is a great place to stay. We often have trouble finding enough king and /or queen sized bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate our entire family, and they provided the linens and towels, which was great! Nothing better than arriving after a long day (or two) of traveling to find a welcoming home, and the beds already made! The house also has a wonderful sun porch which was our family's favorite gathering spot, and it had a table that would seat our whole family. The roof deck offers great views of the harbor and the stars at night. Winter Harbor is a peaceful place to stay, while still being within easy reach of Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park (Mount Dessert Island), Finback Alehouse, and other points of interest. We also explored the Schoodic side of Acadia National Park, and took the Schoodic Ferry into Bar Harbor one day – the departure dock is right down the street from the house, which was great. Maine was gorgeous, and this house is great. Thank you!"

  • Spectacular location away from the crowds. The perfect Schoodic retreat.

    "We had such a relaxing time at the Wonsqueak Harbor House. I almost hate to say how wonderful it is because I don't want to tell the whole world what a great thing we've found or there will never be availability on the calendar again! We loved sitting on the deck and just taking in the beautiful view with our morning coffee or afternoon cocktails, but it was also just a short walk or bike to the park trails so we spent a lot of time hiking and biking too. It was super convenient and easy to put our tandem kayak in right from the house and tour around the adjoining coves. We took advantage of the lobster pot, and the grill, and made most meals right there at the house. But we enjoyed a few meals out too - lobster roll lunch on the wharf in Corea and great fish and chips at the Pickled Wrinkle. On a rainy morning we drove into Ellsworth and got some great deals at LLBean. Another day we put the bikes on the rack and drove over to MDI to bike on some of the carriage paths. We caught sunset from the top of Cadillac Mtn. and then went into Bar Harbor for a really good dinner at Cafe This Way. But we always looked forward to getting back to the comfort of Wonsqueak Harbor house and really hated to leave when our time there came to an end. It truly was a perfect home away from home - quiet, private, comfortable, and relaxing. Thanks so much Cathy. We are grateful to have found you and your beautiful spot. We'd like to come back and maybe (if they're lucky) bring some friends or family with us."
