Recent Winter Harbor reviews

  • 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."

  • Quaint and clean

    "The owners are very kind. Winter Harbor is a quaint small town. Schoodic Peninsula is beautiful. The condo is small for a large group but perfect for four or 5. If children are involved, it can sleep more. It was nice to see a lovely part of Maine."

  • 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!"

  • A perfect centrally located home for the active vacationer.

    "My family has been coming to John and Percilla's Garden Court for about 6 years now. They are the kindest and most helpful renters. From oiling or bike chains, to helping secure my bike rack to making suggestions about what to do, giving us blueberries, Maine Maple syrup and chips. John is a carpenter and is so capable of keeping this property up to par which he does. From this property it is just minutes to the best rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, fishing, and biking. Bartlet landing is minutes away, we found several lobster boats that were very happy to sell us lobsters directly off their boats for way less than at the pounds. The best star gazing is found on a 3 minute walk down Beech Hill Road. Because of this prime location, there is so little down time that you can make the most of your time away. Make sure to get a good topo map of the Island and enjoy this piece of paradise. We look forward to when we are able to visit Garden Court again. P.S. Check out the book Rock Friends of Acadia that John has sitting in the living room. My kids are on the front cover of the book."
