Warm and cozy vacation cottage/cabin built the winter of 2007-08. It was built with your vacation in mind, a place having some illusion of being rustic and with all the comforts and conveniences of home. Pictures of the interior don't convey the ambiance inside. You have to see it. Especially in the evenings with the light from the fireplace reflecting off the vaulted ceiling. If you want something special. You don't want to walk into a rental that looks like the house you just left. Then this may be the place for you! 1. We've always called it a cottage. Some call it a camp or cabin. One couple calls it a camp on steroids. There are no ceilings to the individual rooms. Some of the walls are left unfinished. Realistically it really is a cabin but when I built it Schoodic Point Cabin just didn't have the same ring as Schoodic Point Cottage, what can I say (-: Please examine the pictures really well and ask before renting if you have questions. 2. Last week of June to 2nd week of September all rentals are limited to 1 week (6 - 7 nights) between Sunday and Sunday. 3. 7/10's mile to Main st and 1 Mile to the park. 4. Stream ROKU TV: Sign into your account: at Xfinity, vudu, Spectrum, Netflix, Hulu, & more Rent: new movies Or watch what seems like an endless selection of free channels, movies and sitcoms. 5. There is no air-conditioning. I don't know of anyone that has it. But there are fans if needed. Here you can have remote, secluded, quiet or crowds anytime you want, it's just simply your call. Winter Harbor is less commercialized than the other tourist spots but there's still a lot to do especially those guests who desire a more relaxed, less crowded atmosphere. There are shops, restaurants, kayak/bike rentals and other businesses to explore including one of the oldest golf courses in the country. You can purchase lobster fresh off the boat that like everything else here won't break the bank. Two weeks during the summer there is an arts festival nestled around a one day lobster festival and year round just about every weekend there is a program, theater, concert, dance or some other event going on. Some of the major goings on are: Schoodic Arts Festival 7/27 - 8/10/20 Winter Harbor Lobster Festival 8/9/20 Schoodic Arts puts on programs, theaters, concerts, dances and many other events year round. Schoodic Institute hosts educational programs, festivals, field trips and other events year round on marine life, land and sea birds such as puffins, wildlife, nature and star gazing. Acadia National Park is the most visited national park in the country and the majority of that onslaught is to Mount Desert Island. Fortunately we don't experience the immeasurable daily volume of people, traffic or cruise ships that MDI sees. You won't feel like you are playing dodgems on our sidewalks or have to make reservations far in advance to get into the restaurant you want to go to. Anyway, Winter Harbor is a smaller seaside community across the bay from Bar Harbor with the only section of ANP on the mainland. The entrance road to the Schoodic District is a few hundred yards down Main Street where you'll find miles of hiking and biking trails. At Frazers Point there are picnic tables, many with fire rings and also a long pier and float for fishing. The views from the seaside loop around the park are gorgeous. Schoodic Head the highest point on the peninsula offers panoramic views east, west, north and south. At the southern most tip of the park is Schoodic Points expansive ledges that reach down into the sea with the waves breaking against them. Some of the major goings on are: Schoodic Arts Festival 7/27 - 8/10/20 - At this time still on Winter Harbor Lobster Festival 8/9/20 - Cancelled Schoodic Arts puts on programs, theaters, concerts, dances and many other events year round. Schoodic Institute hosts educational programs, festivals, field trips and other events year round on marine life, land and sea birds such as puffins, wildlife, nature and star gazing. And finally there is the Bar Harbor-Winter Harbor Ferry making daylight runs every hour back and forth during the tourist season. Combined both legs of the trip are a 14 mile leisurely 1 hour tripMore
