Peaceful fishing village
We enjoyed very much our stay in Winter Harbor! Every surface in the apartment was new and it came equipped with just about anything you might need including a lobster pot and utensils. We spent a lot of time on the third floor deck. It offered a very nice partial view of the cove and the lobster boats moored there.
The village offers quaint shops, excellent food and access to live classical music! We enjoyed a full performance of H.M.S. Pinafore complete with orchestra, talented soloists and beautiful costumes in a 150-year-old concert hall.
Schoodic peninsula is only a few minutes away with its crashing surf, bike trails and relatively uncrowded shores but the main part of Acadia is over an hour's drive. Winter Harbor is a working lobstering village, and although the people are tourist-friendly, the area is definitely not "touristy".
We enjoyed everything Acadia and Bar Harbor had to offer including a whale watch, hikes around the lakes and amazing high vistas on Cadillac mountain, but the highlight of our time there was sitting on the rocky shore absorbing the sound and smell of the crashing waves and rolling sea.
Had a great stay in Winter Harbour. Property was perfect for us!
Property was very modern with all the amenities, comfortable bed, open plan kitchen and living area and small deck (chairs as well) that overlooked the little harbour where we took the ferry to Bar Harbour. It’s much more quiet that Bar Harbour which we liked. Had wonderful dinner at the Saltbox one night. Very close to Schoudice part of Acadia park. Would hilghly recommend this as a great place to stay!
Loved our stay Winter Harbor!
It was our first time visiting Acadia National Park. We drove from Philadelphia thru the night on Monday night so we could stop at Cadillac Mountain to watch the sunrise. It was so beautiful! We spent the first day in Bar Harbor hiking the Oceanic trail and biking the Carriage trails. Then we drove Winter Harbor for our stay. We loved our stay in Winter Harbor! It was so nice hiking trails that were not so crowded, but just as beautiful. It is a must to hike up Schoodic Mountain and you will find absolutely beautiful sights if you bike or drive to the Schoodic Peninsula. The one bedroom apartment was nice and clean with fantastic views of the sunsets. You are a block away from a Five and Dime, an IGA market, and several eating places. We especially liked the Gerrish Breakfast/Lunch Cafe across the street. We definitely would recommend this place if you would like a quieter more peaceful stay than you would have in Bar Harbor.
Brand new apartment in quaint town
Beautiful town, view and brand new apartment!!
Location, location, location
There is a new Downeast Maine vacation rental property now available on Main Street in the fishing community of Winter Harbor. As the herring gull flies, Winter Harbor is eight miles across Frenchman Bay from Bar Harbor. In fact, there are two new ocean-view options, sharing the same building. Each apartment is artfully designed and craftsman constructed. It’s also carefully outfitted and equipped with furnishings, artwork and kitchen essentials right out of a magazine. We wound up being the “shakedown cruise” guests. After touring both options – there ‘s a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom apartment, each surprisingly affordable. My traveling companion and I opted for the one-bedroom version, with its vistas from the kitchen/dining area and a roof-level deck that overlooks a quiet but active commercial lobster fishing harbor and a ferry terminal. The ferries take passengers, dogs and bikes to and from Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Within walking distance from our apartment were four Winter Harbor restaurants, offering menus that range from working fisherman’s breakfast/lunch café fare to an evening fine dining option that showcases locally landed seafood – (translates: oysters, lobsters, crab, mussels, halibut and salmon). Other dishes rely heavily on the seasonal harvests of the Schoodic Peninsula’s array of organic farms. Just down Main Street in either direction we found an assortment of shops and galleries, many recent occupants of restored, 19th Century storefronts. Within 100 yards of our front door was a stop for a FREE bus service that meets ferry arrivals and takes visitors to and through the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park -- and home again. Schoodic’s expanded hiking and biking trails and its eight-mile shoreline loop road allowed us to hike to overlooks and to walk the rocky shorelines: pink granite, black basalt and pounding surf. At any price, and very affordable for us, you just can’t have fun like this in Iowa, where we’re from.
