My wife and I live in New Bern, NC.

Douglas Greenwood purchased this house in 2005

We have vacationed in Maine for almost 20 years. Aside from it's natural beauty, it is the perfect place to escape from the heat of a North Carolina summer! We have guest reviews available and can provide you a link to read them upon request.

MANY WATERS

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful property which has been beautifully maintained by the owners. The location is isolated (particularly in comparison to Bar Harbor) and we enjoyed coming back to such a peaceful setting after a busy day at Acadia. The proximity to Winter Harbor made obtaining groceries and lobster from the coop a quick trip. The house is also very well stocked with what you need. A week was not enough time and we would highly recommend this cottage.

A PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I would highly recommend this lovely home. We stayed for two weeks. We already miss being there.The view from the porch was so calming as you watched the lobster boats and listened to the gulls and the soft sounds of the nearby brook. We often took daily trips to Acadia National Park and Schoodic Peninsula yet truly enjoyed just spending time in the well -furnished house. Every bedroom had multiple pillows(--just like in Better Homes and Gardens!) The color schemes were so coordinated and pretty. The beds were very comfortable and roomy. We actually slowed ourselves down to enjoy nature and read multiple books while sittiing on the deck. The hummingbirds would just continue to visit the feeder undisturbed by our nearby presence. I took many pictures so that I could preserve the memories of this beautiful home..During high tide, we enjoyed using the kayaks. The water was calm and the kayaks were easy to maneuver. Now I understand why so many cars have kayaks attached to their hoods. Maine has perfect quiet inlets to kayak .
If you visit this area, be sure to check out the many small quaint shops such as U.S. Bells, a craft shop called Chapter Two in Corea, the 5&10 shop and the Works of Hand shop in Winter Harbor.We saw harbors filled with lobster boats, perennial gardens surrounding homes, and art galleries.The huge granite rocks that line the shoreline in Maine are mind-boggling. We saw artists in several towns painting landscapes and harbors. We also went on a whale watching expedition out of Bar Harbor and a sightseeing cruise out of Northeast Harbor (a naturalist explained facts about the area and lobsters). A memorable vacation! Our thanks to the owners for providing such a clean and well-furnished home.

LOVELY VIEW OF THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay in Corea and loved lounging on the deck set among trees overlooking the harbor. The beds were comfortable, kitchen complete, well structured usage instructions for everything, and the owners very nice people. The owners provided outstanding recommendations for activities, restaurants, and shopping, and the trip to Bar Harbor via ferry from Winter Harbor topped the list. Interestingly, we coincidentally met them on the ferry going over and saw their lovely rental in Winter Harbor on our way back to Corea, which we would also recommend.

We saw the white sand beach along the road from Corea towards Prospect Harbor on our last day and wished we had gone earlier as it is a delightful little cove tucked away from the general public and very restful. With that in mind, do be advised that this Corea property is far away from the general hustle and bustle of civilization, so if you like a few stores and restaurants around, the property in Winter Harbor is more centrally located.

PEACE AND QUIET

  • 3 of 5
We recently returned from a week spent at this cottage in Corea. The photos and description were accurate. A couple of things that were concerning was that there really isn't a place to swim. The tide is very dramatic here and although very interesting to watch, doesn't provide you with enough water to swim in. The lakefront is very boggy and full of seaweed. Perhaps the description stated this, and we missed it. We would have really hoped to have had a deck or somewhere that we could have sat at near the water.
If you want peace and quiet, there is no doubt that this is an amazing place for that. It was very peaceful. For our family, it took us a while to unwind and enjoy the stillness. We were not bothered by anyone or any sounds other than the sweet sound of the nearby brook. The beds are extremely comfortable. The bedrooms are very roomy and clean. We really appreciated that.
It was great to have a washer and dryer in the basement to keep up with the laundry.
For us, after driving all the way from Ottawa, Canada, we were a little unhappy with how far away everything was. We did a lot of driving but each adventure was worth it. Bar Harbor is a nature lover's dream. Hiking, sight seeing, or simply taking photographs, this is the place to do it. We went up Cadillac Mountain, took a Nature Boat Cruise and saw many seals, and porpoises. On our hike we saw quite a few deer in Acadia Park. AMAZING!!!!
We would visit the area again but probably would stay closer to a larger town just because we had already driven so far and to have to drive an hour or more one way, every day, was too much. This cottage is really great if you need to truly get away from it all but still have the accessibility to email and cell service and television. The grounds were well maintained and the kitchen provided everything you could need from various graters to a lobster pot.

Really enjoyed this lovely clean home near Corea. It is wonderfully quiet and very comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped for any type of cooking, although we went out most of the time for dinner.
