Recent Winter Harbor reviews

  • Great Vacation Find

    "What a great vacation find! Having been to Maine several times as a family to visit lighthouses (Coast Guard military service background), we were delighted with the location and small village atmosphere at nearby Winter Harbor/Gouldsboro. Being tucked away in such a private setting was great. We felt like we had discovered a hidden lodge with all the amenities you could ever want. We enjoyed cooking together in the well-appointed kitchen, taking walks in the beautifully landscaped surroundings, and generally just kicking back. Of course, enjoying the heart-stopping view was the best thing going. The only negative to our trip was not seeing a real moose!"

  • Beautiful home and location.

    "Cook's Cottage was a great place to stay for our family of 10. We loved the sitting room, as you have a terrific view of the harbor. Just a walk down the street to the ferry that takes you to Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is about an hour drive - more if traffic is heavy, but totally worth the drive. Do the whale and puffin watch in the morning. We saw two humpbacks breaching, and the puffins were adorable. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed."

  • A Hidden Treasure!

    "What a wonderful stay on this little bay! This cottage was immaculate, yet warm and homey. Not a detail left undone....from the canoe/kayaks on the property to the umbrella at the front door. Even homemade blueberry muffins and smores fixins left in the fridge! Secluded, with easy access to the bay. We enjoyed canoeing out to visit the seals and building fires in the fire pit built from granite on the property. Great history on this home....just ask Tina! Acadia National Park was close enough but far enough to avoid the heavy tourist presence. Schoodic Mountain is closeby for a hike and vista view. We also loved Tidal Falls which was just around the corner."

  • Clean, updated, comfortable place to stay

    "This was our first trip to Maine, and this region around Acadia National Park is beautiful. This house is just walking distance from Winter Harbor, which has an IGA grocery store, several restaurants, and places to buy fresh lobster (the house is well equipped to cook and eat lobster, but we never got around to doing it). Schoodic peninsula, part of Acadia, is just a short 10-minute drive down the road, which made it very convenient for taking early morning pictures of the rocky coastline before sunrise. There is a TV set in a cabinet in the living room with a DVD player, and the Internet is more than sufficient for Netflix, so there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself at the end of a day of hiking, kayaking, mountain climbing, etc. The kitchen is well equipped with all of the appliances and dishes you need to make meals when you are not enjoying the great restaurants in Bar Harbor, which is about an hour drive away. The majority of the park lies on Mount Desert Island, and many of the places we visited were about 50-60 min away, but we spent the whole day there anyways, so the drive was not much of an inconvenience. The only suggestion we have for the house would be for window treatments for all of the downstairs Windows and doors, just for the small sense of security it would add when it is dark outside. Overall, this is a great place to stay in this area!"
