About the property

3 story house on deep water frontage with gorgeous views

Three story cottage on a quiet ,serene wooded lot overlooking prospect harbor. Walk down the short steps to the breathtaking ocean scene. This is classic Maine. Rugged coastline and crashing surf. Listen to and watch the lobster fishermen and women as they haul their traps getting ready to sell you the freshest Maine lobster around.

This house is clean, has a fully stocked kitchen, all linens, is well kept and ready for your enjoyment.

Beauty by the shore

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lobster Lodge for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house setup was perfect for our family of 7 as it provided a good amount of privacy for everybody. My husband and 3 children had our own "wing" as the 3rd floor where the kids stayed is only accessible from the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. This gave my mother and brother-in-law their own rooms and we could keep the kids contained at bedtime. Everybody loved exploring the coastline and fire pits in the evening. We would definitely go back!

A peaceful retreat in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, plus 1 stayed in Lobster Lodge for a week in August. It was just lovely with an amazing view of the water where we watched the porpoise play one evening and the bunny visit daily. The house is very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds. The third floor bedrooms are only accessible by going through the master bedroom on the second floor so may be best suited to younger children although our older sons stayed up there and retired later than we did without waking us. We loved being on the quiet side of Acadia, just 10 min from the park and Winter Harbor. We rented bikes and rode all through the park, visited the education center and hiked a beautiful trail. We enjoyed taking the ferry over to Bar Harbor one day and the pretty drive on others, both about an hour. Alison is wonderful to work with and very responsive! Would definitely recommend to others and stay again!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, perfect for quiet nights, yet close enough to take the ferry to Bar Harbor. Fresh seafood abound. Thanks Alison for making our stay so enjoyable. Close to national park, shopping, and local eats. Beautiful landscapes everywhere you look.

Sand Beach Prospect Harbor- swimming but cold
Car: necessary

Prospect Harbor is located on the scenic Schoodic Peninsula, home of the 'quite' side of Acadia National Park. Schoodic Point includes an 11 mile bike/car route where the crashing surf is simply majestic. Newly added hiking and biking trails offer miles of beautiful exploring. Hiking on the carriage trails or on the meandering foot paths. Leisurely or seriously steep there is something for everyone. Within the park is the Schoodic Educational Research Center which often offers classes and retreats. Prospect Harbor is about one hour's drive from Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island home of Acadia National Park and where you will find fine dining and a plethora of shopping options.

Corea Lunch on the Wharf is a must visit for the best lobster roll ever. Or enjoy a lobster dinner while looking out over the boats in the harbor. For dessert try one of Wendy's famous Whoopie Pies!

Other Activities:

Schoodic Arts

Bar Harbor Ferry

Bartlett's Estate Winery - one peninsula up,

Whale Watching and Cruises

Sea Kayaking

Campobello Island, Roosevelt Cottage - (bring a passport)
