Why Douglas Greenwood chose Corea
We have vacationed in Maine for almost 20 years. Aside from it's natural beauty, it is the perfect place to escape from the heat of a North Carolina summer! We have guest reviews available and can provide you a link to read them upon request.

Lovely view of the water
We very much enjoyed our stay in Corea and loved lounging on the deck set among trees overlooking the harbor. The beds were comfortable, kitchen complete, well structured usage instructions for everything, and the owners very nice people. The owners provided outstanding recommendations for activities, restaurants, and shopping, and the trip to Bar Harbor via ferry from Winter Harbor topped the list. Interestingly, we coincidentally met them on the ferry going over and saw their lovely rental in Winter Harbor on our way back to Corea, which we would also recommend.
We saw the white sand beach along the road from Corea towards Prospect Harbor on our last day and wished we had gone earlier as it is a delightful little cove tucked away from the general public and very restful. With that in mind, do be advised that this Corea property is far away from the general hustle and bustle of civilization, so if you like a few stores and restaurants around, the property in Winter Harbor is more centrally located.
A Peaceful Getaway
My husband and I would highly recommend this lovely home. We stayed for two weeks. We already miss being there.The view from the porch was so calming as you watched the lobster boats and listened to the gulls and the soft sounds of the nearby brook. We often took daily trips to Acadia National Park and Schoodic Peninsula yet truly enjoyed just spending time in the well -furnished house. Every bedroom had multiple pillows(--just like in Better Homes and Gardens!) The color schemes were so coordinated and pretty. The beds were very comfortable and roomy. We actually slowed ourselves down to enjoy nature and read multiple books while sittiing on the deck. The hummingbirds would just continue to visit the feeder undisturbed by our nearby presence. I took many pictures so that I could preserve the memories of this beautiful home..During high tide, we enjoyed using the kayaks. The water was calm and the kayaks were easy to maneuver. Now I understand why so many cars have kayaks attached to their hoods. Maine has perfect quiet inlets to kayak .
If you visit this area, be sure to check out the many small quaint shops such as U.S. Bells, a craft shop called Chapter Two in Corea, the 5&10 shop and the Works of Hand shop in Winter Harbor.We saw harbors filled with lobster boats, perennial gardens surrounding homes, and art galleries.The huge granite rocks that line the shoreline in Maine are mind-boggling. We saw artists in several towns painting landscapes and harbors. We also went on a whale watching expedition out of Bar Harbor and a sightseeing cruise out of Northeast Harbor (a naturalist explained facts about the area and lobsters). A memorable vacation! Our thanks to the owners for providing such a clean and well-furnished home.
Thank you! You have captured all the reasons we love our home on Paul Bunyan Road. We hope to see you again!
Maine in Sept.
Love the layout of the house and the view of the bay. Great for 2 couples or even 3 if one doesn't mind sharing a bath. Utensils were great. Linens plentiful. Great place to go for peace and quiet or to be with friends and explore Acadia area.
Secluded, quiet,and peaceful . Beautiful views. A lovely roomy cottage with everything you need.
Nice secluded well stocked property
We were doing something everyday from hiking, biking, whale watching, fishing and eating seafood so it was nice to come back to property to unwind. We did have alot of driving but not too bad.
Very clean, quiet, and comfortable
Quiet, a little remote, but I would stay here again. Nice access to the Schoodic area of Acadia.
We are minutes away from Acadia National Park at the Southern tip of the Schoodic Penninsula and from the Bar Harbor ferry in Winter Harbor.
