Located on the outskirts of the quintessential fishing village of Winter Harbor, minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park on Schoodic Peninsula, our fully restored New England Barn offers a delightful retreat for your Maine vacation.
The antique furnishings create a cozy atmosphere in the open studio layout, while the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathroom makes your visit effortless. In addition to the two-person antique bed on the first floor and the double size pull-out sofa bed, the loft sleeps one. The dining area seats six.
Throughout the space, bookshelves are filled with reading for quiet times, and collectable art and quilts decorate the walls. The living area faces French doors, which lead to a natural stone patio and a large, private back yard.
At the front of the barn, an attached screened-in porch with dining table and chairs encourages 'al fresco' dining. The adventurous among you are welcome to open the cot there and savor the gentle sounds of the summer evening while drifting off to sleep. A Maine tradition!!
Our closest neighbor is an organic farm where you can purchase just-picked produce to accompany your fresh lobster dinner. Visit the unique farm animals, including cashmere goats and Norwegian Fjords.
This property is just a half-mile from Route One, which leads you antiquing up and down the coast, through seaside villages with inspiring views. Or, kayak, hike or bicycle in nearby Acadia National Park/Schoodic Peninsula Section. Just across the bay from it's busier Bar Harbor cousin, this section of the national park affords a relaxed and quiet retreat from the cares of the world. Wildlife abounds with frequent sighting's of eagles, loons, Canada Geese, deer and more!
Nearby downtown Winter Harbor boasts an old fashioned 5 and 10 (if they don't have it, you don't need it), a small grocery store, a post office, a community theatre, one of the nation's oldest golf courses (with ocean views from every hole) and a few bakeries and small restaurants. Buy your lobsters fresh from the boat at the local dock, or take the ferry (in season) to Bar Harbor for a traditional lobstah roll and chowdah lunch. On Tuesday mornings, join in the fun at the local farmer's market.
The closest airport is Bar Harbor (BHB), and the second closest is Bangor International (BGR). More competitive prices can be secured by flying into Portland (PWM) or Manchester NH (MHT).
Bar Harbor is a 30 minute ferry ride or a 40 miles drive by car.

At first we were a little disappointed with a few practical things. There are no closets in which to hang clothes. We basically lived out of our suitcases. There is very little counter space in the kitchen. We like to prepare as many meals as possible when on vacation so while the antiques were interesting they took up much needed space. We adjusted.
The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and gadgets as well as some starter food items. That was very helpful. And, as others has mentioned, a lovely basket of locally made items - bread, jelly, sweets- were left on the doorstep. The bathroom was fine and the bed was quite comfortable. By the end of our stay we realized that we would remember the Antique Barn for its coziness and charm.
Hi Nancy, Thank you for staying with us and for your thoughts on the Barn. We will add a clothes rack for folks to hang their clothes. Also, we will also replace one of the antiques with a counter top for preparing food. Glad to hear you will remember the Barn for being cozy! Warm regards, Christine
Wonderfully peaceful and quaint place to stay!
We loved our stay at "The Barn"! It was located perfectly for me to travel down to Schoodic for a meeting while also getting to enjoy Maine out of the hustle and bustle. Christine sent us a great list of places to eat, shop, and enjoy and provided us with the sweetest goodie basket upon arrival. We loved it and would highly recommend it to others! Thank you so much for helping us have a wonderful trip!
You're welcome Katie! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay on Schoodic Peninsula. We will see you next time you are on the Coast of Maine. Cheers, Christine
Very good - nice place
Nice place. They gave us some eggs and blue berry jam. We appreciated the items. Thanks and we enjoyed the barn.
Wonderful little barn!
The little red barn was awesome! Was a little further from the main section of Acadia than expected but super close to the Schootic Peninsula section, which was less crowed and spectacular on its own. we had everything we needed there. Great place! Highly recommend! Others have commented about the heating and cooling, but flipping a switch is really not that complicated...
Thank you Barry! We are glad you enjoyed your stay on Schoodic Peninsula. On your next visit, ferry over to Bar Harbor, and leave the driving to the captain of the ferry! It's a very scenic ride over the water. Warm regards, Christine
A perfect get away!
The property itself was charming and cozy. Very private. Close enough, with a short drive to enjoy everything that part of Maine has to offer. My only disappointment was I only booked it for four days, next time we'll be staying at the least a week.
Thank you Pam! We look forward to see you for your next getaway. Safe travels home, Christine
Plenty of space for our family
We had a wonderful experience at the antique barn! We were greeted with fresh farm eggs and a freshly baked loaf of bread. The yard was big enough for the kids to run around in and the only neighbors we saw or heard were across the street. The kitchen was supplied with everything we need to make it feel like home. This house is well taken care of and very clean. We very much enjoyed the character of the house and would highly recommend it to others
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for visiting the Schoodic Peninsula. Enjoy the rest of your Summer, Christine
