I am very pleased that I came across this rental property after months of searching for a perfect place for my family of 6, consisting of teenagers, for our first Acadia National Park family vacation. I did not realize until we got to the place how close it is to the Schoodic Mountain which is the more peaceful part of...

This property is conveniently situated right in the town of Winter Harbor. It is very well-maintained, and the owner has taken pains to ensure that visitors have everything they need for a comfortable stay from a well-appointed property with plenty of cookware, plates and utensils to handy tips (including a valuable short cut for the drive between Winter Harbor and...

Guests like you make having a vacation rental worth all the work and worry. I know that not all vacation rentals live up to the hopes of vacationers, and our goal is to prevent guests from feeling any disappointment when they come to stay at our Winter Harbor house. The fact that we, too, stay in the house between guests...

First of all, Kathleen is an excellent renter with detailed instructions on the house and the area. She responded promptly and gracefully to our questions, concerns, and a problem we encountered- no fault of hers. Secondly, the area was perfect for us as we explored Mt. Desert island and much of Acadia National Park, rented kayaks down the street from...

About the neighbourhood
Private neighborhood. Quiet, cul de sac on beautiful Schoodic Peninsula, a very CLEAN home. Only 3 to 4 minute walk to the ocean harbor in a charming fishing village that is also a destination for summer residents who wish to be close to Acadia National Park, who want access to busy Bar Harbor, but don't want to be in a touristy setting. The house is walking distance to at least 3 eateries during summer. Within 2 miles is a gorgeous and relaxing oceanside picnic area, Frazer Point, in Acadia National Park's breathtakingly beautiful Schoodic Point section. Our EXCELLENT reviews are something we live up to!
Getting around
Arrive by car then choose to continue touring with automobile or rent bicycles and kayaks (within 1/2 mile of the house). It's an easy walk to restaurants, the grocery market for food, beer, wine and to the waterfront! During high season, two Island Explorers buses serve the Schoodic Peninsula (free) and will pick up and drop off passengers at any location along the Schoodic Loop. Or take the passenger ferry (less than 1/2 mile from the house) over to Bar Harbor and the Mt. Desert Island section of Acadia National Park.
