Enjoyed our stay
What a perfect setting! Loved the water view and proximity to the quaint center of Winter Harbor. Walking distance to a grocery store, a couple of restaurants, 5 &10 store, Hammond Hall and a great farmers market on Tues mornings.
Very convenient to all that Schoodic Peninsula has to offer. Sharon is a great host and very responsive to any questions we had.
Enjoyed a comfortable stay!
It reminds us of the older homes we associate with the state of Maine. Comfortable beds, loved the view and location, enjoyed a lobster/clams/mussels supper. Very well stocked, Enjoyed the bikes and outdoor games along with a fire. Nice small town with friendly locals.
Confusing television remotes and stations.
Beautiful area. George and Sharon were great to deal with and we loved being so close to the water . Also, that part of Acadia is breath taking and we enjoyed hiking there just as much or more than bar harbor. Slower pace and walking distance to grocery and a couple of restaurants. I’m already wanting to go back!
