Saltbox-style home built new in 1992 on rocky shorefront of pristine Gouldsboro Bay overlooking Petit Manan Island Light and open ocean.
Situated between the picturesque fishing village of Corea and the mainland section of Acadia National Park at Schoodic Head. The Peninsula is perfect for kicking back and enjoying downtime Downeast away from the crowds. The natural beauty is awe inspiring and especially magical for children.
Every room has an ocean view. The master bedroom has an adjoining study which opens onto a second story balcony.
Our shore front is great for exploring, especially at low tide and there is a sand beach close by. There is a genuine feel to the small towns and villages, the people, and to the Peninsula at large.
Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park at Mt. Desert Island, is an easy 45 minute drive, or a ferry ride from nearby Winter Harbor.
National Scenic Byway: The trip from Ellsworth to the Penninsula, much of the Penninsula, and Schoodic make up The Schoodic Scenic Byway. The views throughout the area are stunning.
This was exactly the property and experience we were hoping for and needing. A place to get away from the world and completely relax!
The home is clean and decorated in a coastal theme. The quiet was so restoring and restful. The only sound of the outside world was the peaceful puttering of the lobster boats each morning pulling their traps.
We were entertained in the morning with a little red squirrel dropping small, soft pine cones around us while we drank our coffee. We were clearly invading his favorite dining area!
The Schoodic peninsula offers the most amazing beauty of nature, friendly locals and hours of walking the beach to admire the endless variety of rocks!
We would recommend this home to anyone looking to get away from it all and hope to return for another stay.
This is a wonderful place to charge your mental batteries. The house itself is beautifully done. The downstairs has a comfortable country charm, practicality, and of course many windows overlooking the water. The upstairs is what I referred to as the penthouse. The master bedroom and attached study give you a huge room with a spectacular view from every window. Right from your bed, you're looking down over the bay and the ocean beyond. From the small waves crashing at high tide to the quiet solemnity of low tide, you are constantly surrounded and ultimately immersed in the natural environment.
This is a lovely, quiet area on the Maine coast. Their are many beautiful places to see and the seafood is beyond compare. If you are looking to relax and be awed by nature while staying in a beautiful home, this is the place for you. Please folks, don't everyone follow my advice. I want to go back myself and I don't want to get booked out!
This cottage was EXACTLY what our family of four, with kids 10 and 12, were looking for. I'd researched cottages for months online and finally settled on this one: I made the perfect choice. The photographs do not do it justice - in particular, it is much more open, bright and spacious than we imagined, very nice for a family of four but roomy enough for more. The cottage was private, clean, quiet, and the views will be in my mind and heart forever. Our days quickly took on a routine: I was up at 5am with the lobster boats, sitting out on the rocks with my coffee, reading a book, watching the boats and the fog rise. One morning a red fox joined me! Perfect privacy and peace! By 8am, the kids would meander down to the shoreline in their pajamas to start playing in the tide pools, watch the boats, and climb rocks. Later, their dad would join us and we'd plan our day. Most days we'd drive the ten minutes to Schoodic Point (part of Acadia NP) and spend all day climbing the rocks, hiking, and playing in the crashing waves. Although it was mid-July, Schoodic was not at all crowded, unlike the "maine" Acadia NP and the Bar Harbor area which is about an hour away. We thought the location of the cottage was perfect. There are a few restaurants and quaint shops in the immediate area and more within a thirty minute drive. Most nights we picked up live lobsters at the little shack down the lane and made our own meals. The kitchen had everything necessary for a family that likes to cook. The owner, Ron, was an absolute pleasure to deal with and answered my many questions patiently and thoroughly. My deposit was returned quickly at the end of our vacation. This was the vacation of a lifetime for us and we would love to return someday. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough to a family looking for peace, interaction with nature, solitude, the quintessential "Maine" experience and a restorative vacation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the ocean front cottage. We stayed in the cottage for a week. It was easy to relax in such a quiet, serene setting. The cottage was roomy, clean, and well-equipped, which made our stay even more enjoyable. The wood stove was very cozy on one of the cooler evenings. On a couple of warmer evenings we opened the bedroom windows and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean, the breeze in the pines, and the birds. We also enjoyed relaxing in the chairs that were set up down by the shore.
Most of our days were spent exploring the surrounding areas such as Acadia Park, harbors, art galleries, harbors...and, of course, restaurants! And after our day of exploring, it was so nice to come "home" to the cottage and relax.
When we came home from our week in Maine, we really missed Maine, "our" cottage, and the ocean views!
We recommend this beautiful area of Maine, and especially a stay in the Pavoldi's lovely cottage, to everyone.

This is a great house, very clean and comfortable. The second floor has two bedrooms, a bath, and a small office. It is open and spacious with sliding doors to a deck. All the windows provide great light and a gorgeous view. The first floor has kitchen, dining room, living room, bath and bedroom. This bedroom is small but nice. Again a deck and lots of window to enjoy the view. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from it all this is the place. Just a note; no TV except for DVD's or VCR's but plenty of books and games.
Our visit to your home in Maine could not have been more spectacular. As in previous reviews we were in awe of the resident porcupine, enjoyed the natural beauty of the surroundings and feasted on lobster at almost every meal. Awakening to the gorgeous view of the water from the bay window made every morning start with a surreal sense of peace and tranquility.
The pictures do not do justice of truly how nice your home is. There's an inherent feeling in the home that it was built with love. We enjoyed the fire pit and adirondack chairs as much as the ocean view from the second floor deck.
The trip into Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park was a simple drive and we took advantage of doing two amazing hikes during our stay. We also felt very welcomed by the locals at the Nautical Pub, who shared with us where to get fresh lobsters fresh off the boat, which we enjoyed cooking in the fully appointed kitchen. Each evening we relaxed on the couch and enjoyed our wine by the wood burning stove.
I would recommend your home to anyone!

The Schoodic Peninsula, part of a National Scenic Byway, is the perfect combination of pristine natural surroundings and necessary comforts and amenities. Pristine bays, forests and shore fronts. Restaurants, galleries, shops, groceries. Laundromat, 5 & 10, ice cream. Organic farm, fresh lobster right from the pier. Acadia National Park (mainland) with 6 miles of one way road winding between bold crashing surf and evergreen forest. Quiet, but not too quiet. Private, but not isolated.
And an ideal base from which to launch day trips, or simply kick back. Everything one needs is right on the peninsula.
