I was born in the area and attended the local schools, graduating from the local high school.
This home has been in my family since 1885. This house has been passed down thru the generations. I have many fond memories of time spent in this home and in the town of Winter Harbor.
Large yard & field to play games & enjoy the outside, with ocean views from the house and master bedroom. You can walk to everything in the town of Winter Harbor. Acadia National Park-Schoodic close by.
This was our first family vacation in too many years to count, and it was incredible!! Despite all the rain! The home is more than well stocked and pretty true to its description. Sharon has thought of everything!! The house is really well situated, we liked staying out of the hub of the bar harbor area..and Winter Harbor provides a nice little haven. For sure go to the Visitors center across the street especially on Farmers Market day. We hope to be able to come back and stay here many times in the future!
My husband and I vacationed here for our honeymoon! We are from Kansas City, MO so we didn't really know what to expect in ME; we were pleasantly surprised!
This house we stayed in was within walking distance to the ocean and to a nice restuarant. They were equipped with a washer and dryer which came in handy over the week. The bedrooms were spacious, yet cozy. Overall the house was great.
As for the area, we took a few day trips to Bar Harbor, ME (about an hour away, totally worth the drive). We went hiking in the Acadia National Park and enjoyed the breathtaking views. We visited the shops and restaurants there as well. If you are there, make sure to go by Thirsty Whale's, they have great food! We also made a day trip to Millinocket, ME and went white water rafting!
Maine is the outdoorsmen's paradise. Whether you are wanting a relaxing, leisurely trip or an exciting adventure, Winter Harbor, ME is the place to be! The owners were very kind and called us up the first night to make sure we were settling in ok. They gave us some last minute tips and tricks which was great!
We had a great honeymoon and would definitely return!
The vacation home was as described, very clean, homey and had everything that we needed to enjoy our vacation. There is a new Information Center across the street that had great coffee, yummy pasties/breads and a wonderful farmers market. The town of Winter Harbor was charming; have to visit the 5 and 10 and the shops.
We rode the ferry over to Bar Harbor; and had some great lunch and wild blueberry ice cream! The Schoodic side of Acadia was great for picnics and really close to the house - we took advantage of the free bus to tour the area. I recommend going to the town of Corea, quaint lobster town - had great food at the Corea Wharf.
We stayed in Winter Harbor an extra day to experience the Pancake Breakfast and Lobster Festival. It was work the extra day.
I highly recommend a stay at this home with your family. My sister, niece, and grand-niece had a wonderful time.
From the moment we arrived at our lovely vacation home, we felt like we were truly "on vacation". We opened the windows to allow the ocean breeze to filter in through the filmy white curtains, and breathed the fresh air of Winter Harbor, Maine. Everything was provided from clean linens to blueberry jam, information about events and activities in the area, a bicycle, picnic basket and blanket, and even a lobster pot, which we happily used. We are already planning our trip for next year, and couldn't be more pleased with our stay at the quaint summer home on 27 Newman Road, Winter Harbor, Maine.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Sharon's rental home for our vacation in Winter Harbor. The house was clean, comfortable, and in a great location. Although we were up during a fairly hot week the nights were always comfortable in the bedrooms because of the ceiling fans and a lovely breeze. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen and dining room were great and very well stocked. There were even extra toothbrushes, tooth paste, shampoo, etc., in the bathroom in case you forgot to bring your own.
I've visited Winter Harbor almost every summer of my life, and have a great affection for it. The house is located very conveniently to Main Street, you can walk to just about everything in town.
My husband was able to get a lot of work done during the days with the very reliable wireless internet, and we enjoyed being able to cook when we didn't feel like going out. The yard was excellent, and a great spot for our 20 month old to run around in. We also enjoyed being so close to the water, being able to see it from the house or walk to it in the mornings.
I would absolutely recommend this rental to others, and will most likely be doing so to family members (or staying again) in future summers.
We had a wonderful vacation in Maine!
The house was just as described and a very welcoming place to come to after a busy day out and about. We used the large cooler to pack lunches for our day trips to the Shore Path in Bar Harbor, Campobello Island to see FDR's summer home and a trip to the Oceanarium. We used the large stock pots to boil the live lobsters we bought at the Winter Harbor Co-op. And had S'mores a couple of nights after using the backyard grill for hamburgers.
We had a very nice dinner at Chase's (5 min walk) and stopped at Harbor Girls for some awesome Philly Cheesesteaks after a visit to Schoodic Point. Later in the week we went back for pizza. Yummy!
Sharon provided a huge amount of information on the sights and activites around the area including Seacoast Fun Park in Trenton (45 mins) with Go-Karts, water slides, mini-golf and water balloon wars. (We treated our boys to it after half a day of shopping).
Winter Harbor is a lovely little town and we felt very comfortable sending our 11 and 10 year old boys to the IGA around the corner to pick up milk. (They loved it!)
The weather was perfect! Shorts during the day and jackets for our evening walks. Bring sturdy shoes to walk along the rocks on the beaches. This was a favorite activity for us all.
We have fallen in love with Maine and will certainly go back again.
Explore Acadia National Park-Schoodic Peninsula, hike, bike, sail, fish. Enjoy the ocean breezes. Shop specialty stores and art galleries. Picnic at Frazier's Point. Take the ferry to Bar Harbor & Mt. Desert Island, also home to Acadia Natl Park or drive yourself.
