The Boathouse is a secluded 1 bedroom retreat in a small neighborhood on Henry's Cove in WInter Harbor. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor yet only a scenic hour ferry ride away You can see the ferry dock from the cottage and walk to the dock in about three minutes.
Roger and Pearl were friendly and accomodating. Our cottage had a small kitchen fully stocked withe dishes and pots and pans with a small in-kitchen dining table, a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator and microwave. Shower off the kitchen. Living area with a couple of chairs but we spent out time out on the deck drinking in the smells of the sea, the cries of the sea birds and the serenity of the cove
There are other cottages on the property but we think the Boathouse is the best because your deck is over the water.and when you're out there it seems like you're the only ones
