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.
We had a wonderful stay at Sharon and George's home. The house had everything to make your stay so enjoyable. We loved the bikes and riding around the town, there's travel books and games for he kids. The house was so charming. Loved the ocean breeze coming thru the windows and sitting outside in the chairs having our morning coffee or in the evening a glass of wine facing the cove. Winter Harbor is lovely and the locals are so friendly. Spent time at Schoodic Pt., kayaking on Fenchman Bay, hiking in Acadia Park relaxing on Sands beach and taking in the sights of Bar Harbor. The coastline is absolutely gorgeous in that part of Maine. Got our full of seafood and loved the fact we could make lobster dinner at the house. Thank you both for such a wonderful stay.
We so enjoyed our stay! The house is within walking distance of several restaurants and small stores. The portion of Acadia in the Schoodic Penninsula was so quiet and uncrowded. Much different experience than the area near/around Bar Harbor. It is a solid 45 minute drive to the main part of Acadia. It is a bit of journey, but well worth it to avoid the congestion of Bar Harbor. The house is very clean and well appointed. All reported that their beds were super comfortable, as was mine! We sooo enjoyed our stay in both this home and this lovely part of Maine.
What a wonderfully maintained home! The hosts provided everything anyone could need to feel at home, and check to make sure that their guests do feel at home. They went above and beyond to make us comfortable. We are all serious coffee drinkers and Sharon and George went out of their way to make sure we had a new coffee pot that would serve a group, rather than a Keurig. They will answer any questions you have about the home, or the area. The home is beautiful and comfortable, with games, movies, TVs, a perfect table for playing board games, bicycles, renovated kitchen and cozy living room. Stairs to bed rooms are steep, but lit well. The bed was so comfortable that I slept better there than I ever do at home. In fact we all felt so at home there that we were very sad to leave. Also, Garrish's a couple blocks away was a delightful place for breakfast and lunch and the folks there treat travelers as friends. Other restaurants are walking distance and a farmer's market is across the street on Tuesday. Thanks George and Sharon for treating your guest so kindly!
Winter Harbor is a wonderful location to book for a week, and then take day trips from the rental home in any direction. You can walk downtown, to the ocean, and wander through many art galleries. The gallery owners are friendly, knowledgeable and enjoy brilliant gardens. This rental home is a renovated 1800's home, with every ammenity, including lobster pot! We visited the Winter Lobster Coop & bought our own live lobster to cook our dinner. We went the first two weeks of October, and many businesses' were closed for winter, but we didn't care. We were there for the fresh lobster, ocean, beaches, and magnificient fall colors. The home was clean, with many travel books and even directions for how to cook lobster! The only concern one might run into is the steep stairs to the second floor. If you do not manage stairs easily, you might want to sleep on living room hide-a-bed, which is comfortable. Enjoy! You won't regret it!
What a nice place and so relaxing. We enjoyed the short walk to the harbor and the ever present breeze off of the water whenever we stepped out the front door. The house was nicely stocked for our stay, the washer and dryer are a nice bonus. We really enjoyed the proximity to everything but found we liked the quiet life of the Winter Harbor area the most.
The stay at your house was amazing. Loved the view of the harbor first thing in the morning and last thing you see before going in for the night. The experience was fantastic. Plenty of things to do and see to keep us busy all week.
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.
