MAINE THE WAY IT USED TO BE

  • 5 of 5
I was born in Maine (too many years ago to discuss!) so I know this to be true, the Schoodic Surf Cottage is Maine the way it used to be.

As others have said, the photos do not do this cottage and its location justice. The house is larger than it appears (1,800 sq. feet), this was on the internet information, but I did not pay attention, so I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the décor. It has a cottage feel, but includes many personal touches that make you feel right at home. My family owns vacation property, so I understand how hard the owners have worked. I also know they do a great job keeping the home clean. Yes, clean! You just never know when renting, do you? The phone numbers to the owner, caretaker and rental agent are posted where you feel you really could call if there was anything wrong. The owner has even put together a great book about the area to help with day trip decisions.

Prospect Harbor is small (no red lights), but the people are friendly. There is a deli just down the street and a cute library with a lovely view. The next town, Winter Harbor has a couple restaurants, art galleries and a neat 5&10. Also, an IGA if you need supplies. Ellsworth is only 30 minutes away and has everything from McDonalds, Super Wal-Mart and a cute downtown with good restaurants.

The beautiful Schoodic Point portion of Acadia National Park is only five miles from the cottage. Bar Harbor is about 45 minutes away.

Now for the best part - the ocean view is amazing. The rocks are real Maine pink granite. Yes, large granite rocks, not pebbles or sand, and real deep water Atlantic Ocean, not that Maine mud at low tide. It’s the real thing! Waves crashing and everything. Lobster buoys, lobster boats and life-altering sunrises (sleep with the shades to the ocean up). There are Adirondack chairs and even a hammock. I don’t know if you can get a view like this anywhere else. If so, I have yet to find it.

RELAXING AND SURREAL

  • 5 of 5
This house was wonderful and so were the owners. A storm had just gone through and there was not any electric when we arrived and Kent and Lynell were wonderful to work with. The house is just as pictured and the setting is very relaxing! Everything you could need is provided and the house is very clean! You can go to sleep every night with the windows down and hear the waves crashing. The house is right around the corner from the best section of Acadia National Park. There were three of us that stayed and all of us loved relaxing at the house on the ocean. Our deposit was quickly returned which is always a plus. We hope to be able to make it back one day and that this house will be available again. We definitely would recommend this house. Thank you Kent and Lynell for opening your home to us. The Bolyard Family.

PERFECT LOCATION, PERFECT HOME, WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We've been coming to Downeast Maine for several years and love it (hope to retire here), but this is the first rental home we wanted to come back to. We've already booked for next year.

The location is beautiful. The house is in a quiet development in woods adjacent to the Prospect Harbor Lighthouse. As others have said, the pictures on this site don't do justice. It's a perfect Cape with an open layout (and gorgeous pine floors) downstairs and a well-done dormer'd two bedroom and bath space upstairs. The furniture is very nice, and the owners have supplied decent linens and dishware (not all of them do) as well as good cookware. WiFi made being up here for two weeks manageable work-wise, and we especially appreciated the ability to use the no-charge land line (cell service is not good). The best part, though, is the backyard ... lovely garden beds and stairs that lead to huge pink granite boulders that you can walk at low tide. No mud flats here! We arrived just before Hurricane Irene, and watching the pitch pines sway in the wind over the rocks was an amazing experience.

The owners and their property manager are terrific. Both Kent and Lynell checked in before, during, and after the storm, and Wendy is as responsive as anyone we've ever dealt with.

This place is a treasure. Be sure to check out the Fisherman's Inn in Winter Harbor, Le Domaine in Hancock, Jordan's Snack Bar in Ellsworth, and the Prospect Harbor Farmers Market.

SCHOODIC SURF A SURE DELIGHT!

  • 5 of 5
Schoodic Surf Cottage is a charming cape nestled on a wooded lot. The best part of each day was sipping coffee in the cozy, yet spacious master bedroom while watching the sun rise each morning. Everything in the cottage is excellent: the cleanliness, the furniture, the decorating scheme, the well-organized kitchen. The owner has thoughtfully provided a notebook detailing where everything needed is located in the house as well as activities and attractions in the area. Vacationers can choose whether to simply sit by the ocean and enjoy the sounds of the sea, or use Schoodic Surf as their home base while exploring Downeast Maine. This house is a treasure!

LONG WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a long weekend here with two friends and we definitely recommend the house! I actually thought it was bigger than the pictures appear, it was neat, clean, private, and an overall wonderful experience. The house comes stocked with anything you may need, including games, dvd's, and plenty of kitchen utinsels and appliances. It was so peaceful with wonderful views of Prospect Harbor, very close to Winter Harbor, and a beautiful drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. We highly recommend the experience!

GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
If you need to recharge, this is definitely the place to do it. The minute we all got out of the car the smell of the ocean and balsam immediately overcame us all. This was truly a vacation of relaxing and taking in the beauty of nature.

The best two things about this place were the awe-inspiring sunsets and sunrises. Anything that you could possibly need is right at your fingertips--thanks to the thoughtfulness of the homeowners. We also enjoyed the quaintness of the lobster villages, eclectic shops, and fabulous eateries. Truly a great escape!
