Lobster Lodge is Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with every amenity you could ask for! The house is on a very quiet lot - we fell asleep to the sound of the water every night. We enjoyed sightseeing on both sides of the island and enjoyed lobster at the festival in Winter harbor and on the Wharf. Allison was great -super helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Peace and beauty on the quiet side of Acadia

  • 5 of 5

From the initial interactions with Alison, the property manager, to the last day of our stay, every aspect of our stay was great. Alison was friendly, helpful and accommodating, and showed us everything we needed to know about the home.

We had a group of six and there was ample room for everyone to have their own space. The house was spotless and well equipped, and the view of the harbor and lighthouse was really beautiful. It's probably the only vacation I've had where I have found myself getting out of bed early to watch the sunrise. It was beautiful and utterly peaceful to sit on the log on the rocky shore with a cup of coffee and watch the sleepy harbor come alive. The only sounds were the waves, the fishing boats, and the bell on the harbor buoy. The first day of our stay, I found myself breathing deeply and relaxing every time I realized just how quiet and peaceful it was.

There is so much to do in the area, we barely scratched the surface! While there, we took a kayak tour in Winter Harbor, hiked the Anvil trail, took the ferry over to Bar Harbor and hiked Cadillac Mountain, and generally enjoyed all the gorgeous scenery. We spent an afternoon in Bar Harbor doing shopping, eating and people watching, and were glad to retreat to the quiet of Lobster Lodge at day's end.

The kitchen is well set up to cook for a group, and all the equipment for a lobster feast is there if you so desire. On the nights we ate out, we tried the Pickled Wrinkle and we also tried Iron Bound...both were excellent.

We had a wonderful time and would stay here again...thank you Alison for your hospitality, and thank you to Eric for building such a great place! Thank you Scott for sharing your lovely home with us. Our dog Daisy appreciated the pet sitting services from Alison's daughter, Susie :).

You won't regret staying here, it's pretty perfect! Look for the wild rabbit who hangs out in the backyard around 6:30 am.

An awesome place for a Maine vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at the Lobster Lodge for one week and no one wanted to leave. The house is roomy and immaculate and the ocean views are gorgeous. As others have written, there's nothing quite like being lulled to sleep by the ocean surf out the window. Despite being there during the hottest part of the summer, the temperatures where always comfortable—no need for AC. Alison was very helpful and sent us to Bob's for THE BEST lobsters. We biked the Schoodic peninsula one day, drove to Desert island on another. There house is secluded, but a short dive to many great places. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a unique, quiet getaway.

Excellent, clean and lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at The Lobster Lodge in Prospect Harbor, Maine was awesome. The home is gorgeous with great ocean views from most rooms. The home is furnished well and the kitchen was pretty much stocked with anything needed for preparing and cooking all meals. The host Alison was very helpful with iformation about the area and where to buy the freshest lobsters. Having everything needed for a lobster feast was very handy. The home is located close enough to enjoy bar harbor if one chooses to be a tourist. We really liked the quietness of Prospect Harbor. We also enjoyed a day at gorgeous Schoodic Point which is just a few miles from Lobster Lodge. Definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a vacation in Maine👍👍

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home had everything needed to enjoy your stay! We would definitely recommend the property to our friends and relatives. The property was very clean and well maintained. Beautiful layout and slept all 9 of us comfortably. Our dogs also enjoyed the long walks in the neighborhood.

Charming, sparkling clean, waterfront hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Though there were only two of us, this house can easily sleep six or more. The house manager, Alison, is wonderful - friendly, helpful, very connected to the community so she can give you all the best tips on where to buy lobster and what views not to miss - and presents a house that is exceptionally clean and well-equipped, from umbrellas in the front closet to a kitchen that has everything you'd need for making a lobster feast and more. We had a marvelous time and will be back! (One note: if you're looking for a beach kids can play on, this isn't really it unless they are old enough to navigate rocks that slip and slide a bit underfoot. It's a beautiful view, though, and plenty of swimming spots abound at the nearby gorgeous Schoodic Point and local lakes. Loved our time in a less touristy, very beautiful part of Maine!

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,
