Peaceful ... Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a more perfect location! Home was lovely/very clean. Close to town /within walking distance to resturants and water. Convenient to ferry to get to Downtown Bar Harbor for the day. Very much enjoyed Acadia National Park and the surrounding areas. Very relaxing and peaceful location!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews but this property deserves a 5 star review.

* this home is the cleanest property we have ever rented

*equipped with every thing you would need for a comfortable stay

*the Schoodic portion of Acadia is absolutely beautiful

*the location was great (very close to a lobster pound which cooked the lobster for you)

*the backyard had a fire pit, outside dining and a hammock

The owners of this property really take pride in their home and it shows. We really enjoyed our time in Winter Harbor.

Getaway Great!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely place when we came to Maine for my daughter's wedding. What a great place!!

Convenient location, comfy and cozy. The house is very family friendly. We played games every evening.

We enjoyed the local restaurants and ate a lot of lobster. Took the ferry to Bar Harbor and saw eagles, seals and porpoises on the trip.

I highly recommend this place. The owners are first class!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a great location. It was an easy walk to the water and the small supermarket. The house was very clean and larger than I expected. The owners left a welcome bottle of wine that was great. Winter Harbor is very peaceful and quiet. A great place to get away from it all.
