FORGET THE OUTSIDE WORLD AND RELAX IN THIS BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE HAVEN

Corea Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Awake to incredible sunrises, relax in comfortable Adirondack chairs on the seaside deck and let the world go away while enjoying your morning coffee. Watch lobstermen haul their traps in Gouldsboro Bay. Make pancakes or steam lobsters in the fully-equipped kitchen or grill outside. Dig your toes into a nearby sandy beach or go swimming in Jones Pond just a few miles away. Hike up Schoodic Mountain and bike the 12-mile loop around Acadia on the Schoodic Peninsula. Head over to Winter Harbor and browse the shops and galleries. Stop for a bite at a variety of restaurants and bistros. Hop on a ferry that will take you on a very scenic ride through islands and the open ocean to Bar Harbor. Hunker down at night with a glass of wine and select music or a movie from collections in the cottage. If you have a little more steam check out the active local music scene or take a thermos of coffee to Schoodic Point and watch the sun sink behind Cadillac Mountain.

Suitability:
  • pets considered

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The photos of this cottage are fantastic -- the reality is even more impressive! The location is perfect and very private with a nearly 180 degree view of Gouldsboro Bay and not a neighbor in sight. The cottage is very comfortably furnished with quality linens, the kitchen is very well equiped, and all is spic and span. Just about any need is met including an enormous collection of DVDs and books. Also, the owner has provided a binder chock full of information about things to do and attractions in the local area. We took the boat from Winter Harbor over to Bar Harbor where we had egg creams at the pharmacy and rode the Island Excursion bus into Acadia. We had lots of wild blueberry pie from a deli in Prospect Harbor and lobsters from the local coop. The cottage is so very comfortable that even a foggy day is a pleasure.

Charming cottage in exquisite setting

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a perfect week in this homey cottage with incredible views. All of our needs were taken care of, loved the little stove on those cool mornings and evenings. Can't say enough about the views, and the cottage just blended in. We also enjoyed exploring the surrounding villages and harbors, some lovely shops. We left restored.

The coast of Maine experience at its best

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have lived on the coast of Maine (in Belfast) for 26 years, and we have yet to take its natural and man-made beauty for granted. Even though we are exposed to the coast daily, our stay at his lovely home in Corea reignited our love of this special part of Maine.

Sitting on the couch, one can see the bay formed by two peninsulas out three different windows. The house sits on a point, so the views are mesmerizing (a seal bobbed a stone's throw from the deck... two eagles landed on some rocks at low tide... a lobster boat pulled traps 50 feet from the glass sliders). On two nights, we watched the moon rise from one of the windows.

But even on a cloudy night, the comfort of this "cottage" and its oh-so-tastefully decorated and appointed rooms are a vacation in themselves. It's both cozy and roomy. The kitchen was well-equipped (could have saved wear-and-tear on my back from lugging boxes of baking dishes if I'd known) and the refrigerator is larger than the one at home.

We slept in the loft bedroom for three nights, and it felt like a mini-apartment. Friends spent a night in the other bedroom and loved it. The living room was large enough for us all to sit and munch and chat.

The location is what put this over the top for us. We have grown to love the Corea-Winter Harbor area. We never get tired of walking around Corea village, along the Crowley Island shore or west along the shore to the point. We also are fond of parking at Schoodic Point (part of Acadia National Park) and walking to Birch Harbor.

We already are planning to book a week or long weekend next fall. We've stayed in a lot of rental cottages in New England, and this absolutely tops the list.

Bar Harbor, Boothbay, Kennebunkport, etc., we have vacationed Maine in years past and enjoyed immensely. This particular month long trek to Maine and Vermont (leaf peeping), we decided to go native... less hustle & bustle, rushing here/there... making sure we left no stone unturned... and couldn't have found a more perfect location/home in which to relax/enjoy Maine in a way we have never before!

The process of locating the perfect vacation location can prove to be most daunting to say the least, especially seeking/searching the Internet... the uncertainty, with almost every listing sounding too good to be true, but... would it be upon arrival? ... would it be worth the investment of time, energy, emotion, money? In THIS CASE/LOCATION/COTTAGE... a HUGE YES!!! Jackie Weaver (owner of this beautiful home) is professional, hands on during the transaction (available via phone/emails/snail mail), and available (as much or as little as you would like her to be once there!) We enjoyed meeting her upon arrival, and almost felt guilty not needing her for anything after the initial mert/greet! YES!!! it was that perfect an experience/vacation!

Location: Quaint lobster fishing village with friendly waving/catch showing fisherman right out the sliding glass doors on the bay.

Cottage: Immaculate, well appointed, comfortable home with spectacular views/privacy. Nothing for us to be concerned with but relaxation :)

Local entertainment/food in/nearby: rocking chairs, coffee cups in hand, loons, Eagle, herons, beaver damn, nature/Maine woods, parks, ponds, quilts, bells, light house, lobster traps, Lobster Co-op, used book stores, antique shops, lobster pounds, Schoodic area/Acadia National, etc... seek and you shall find :). Not to mention within minutes of all the hustle/bustle busyness of the vacations we have always experienced. Foliage was beautiful and changed from totally green to leaf peeping/Fall foliage during our stay!

The sunrises were picture perfect, sunsets the most colorful we have ever had the pleasure of witnessing, and a full moon with light shimmering across the bay. It rained only two days the entire trip, the weather unseasonably warm, and the time spent even afforded us with some cooler Main temps!

Food was great, natives were friendly, home felt like home!/wanted to extend our stay, but checked this site and it was already booked... otherwise Jackie would have needed to pull us out kicking!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house is better than the pictures. The area is beatiful, the house is right on the water. It was spotlessly clean. We have been coming to the area for about 15 years and started exploring the Winter Harbor area for the last several years. This place was a find. If you like kayaking Gouldboro Bay is a very nice and a little drive away Sorrento (the public launch) is a spot right out of a postcard. in Corea Seascapes Kayak tours is a very good service. Unfortunetly the house is not very good for launching, but there are plenty of other places to go. The people in the area are friendly and glad to point you in the right direction. The house is not ideal for very little children but for four people it was just right. Hanging out on the deck in the early evening is wonderful and in the mornings the lobster boats are pratically in the backyard. It is too bad we could only stay for a week.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
The most relaxing vacation ever! I live in Maine not far from Corea but needed a quiet getaway. this was perfect! the house is beautifully decorated and so well organized. A beautiful, obviously, new bathroom. Nice new kitchen appliances. Bring your cd's and DVD's there is tv and a cd player. The living room is wonderfully comfortable. But the piece de resistance is the porch. Probably 20' from the high tide mark. An eagle in the fur tree next to us kept us in awe trying to steal the catch of the seaducks. A blue heron who would come every low tide to eat his supper. We kepyt careful track of the lobstermen hauling their traps.
The views from the bedroom and living room windows are equally spectacular, I had to run to the porch at sunrise to get some great pictures (not my hour, but couldn't resist). Both bedrooms are nice, obviously the loft upstairs being the master.
The hostess is more than helpful and nice to rent from an owner instead of an agent.
There is so much to do in this area but seeing as I live less than an hour away I just spendt my time enjoying this lovely home. We did go down to the wharf to eat lunch twice and that was fun. All the locals are so friendly,kind and helpful. The art gallery , Chapter Two was quite nice also.
At first I had my heart set on staying down in the town of Corea but this house does not dissappoint, much happier with this location. One week this year and already booked two for next year.
This is a new property, if you are looking for a repeat vacation rental I highly recommend because once this catches on it will be booked year after year.

Lobster fishing is still a way of life on the Schoodic Peninsula, which includes the towns of Winter Harbor and Gouldsboro. There are several villages in Gouldsboro--Corea, Prospect Harbor, Birch Harbor, Wonsqueak Harbor and Bunker's Harbor. Take a very scenic ferry ride from Winter Harbor to Bar Harbor where L.L. Bean provides free bus transportation around Mount Desert Island. There is a sand beach not far from the cottage as well as swimming in Jones Pond. Look for sea glass along the shore in Prospect Harbor. Visit the farmer's market in Winter Harbor on Tuesday mornings. Vacation in August and take classes during the two week Schoodic Arts for All Festival. Summers offer theater, live music, interesting lectures and programming for adults and children at Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula.
