In the heart of Acadia National Park region. Licensed by State of Maine, verified by Flipkey/TripAdvisor, we are an American Vacation Rental Owners' Association certified owner so you can rent with confidence in our honesty and record as excellent, honest hosts. We're proud of our guests' 5 star reviews. We've been hosting happy guests since 2005. This charming Maine vacation rental home is in quaint Winter Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula, site of the breathtaking Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park, See our many photos for the Winter Harbor post card with map and arrow showing our exact location. The home is on a quiet cul de sac with private deck (overlooking a lovely meadow and Cadillac Mountain), where you can sit unobserved in your pjs with morning coffee, or later with a glass of wine watching stunning sunsets, songbirds, gulls and even eagles & osprey flying about, but within easy stroll of the village. Schoodic Acadia is considered by many the most dramatic scenery and surf in Acadia National Park. And you enter less than a mile from the house. Great bicycling, hiking, kayaking, or touring by car. Grindstone Neck Golf less than a mile away. Jones Pond freshwater swimming/picnic/boating park is 7 miles away and free admission. Bike & kayak rentals less than 1/2 mile.The Schoodic Loop road winds its way through marshes, stunning views, ocean coves & harbors, past views of the Winter Harbor Mark Island lighthouse, pine topped islands, to famous Schoodic Point with dramatic surf and impressive granite outcroppings.We'll tell you about a spot where there is so little light pollution that you'll see a night sky you may never have seen before, and perhaps one of the Park's resident porcupines! Within 2 miles, inside Acadia National Park, is Frazer Point oceanside picnic area and fishing pier, complete with tidal pools at low tide, a great place for kids to play and for adults to relax with a good book (if you can concentrate on reading while surrounded by indescribable beauty). Gather around a crackling fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, creating indelible memories. Clean, park-maintained restrooms mean you can stay all day and into the evening, beyond the time when the lobster boats buzz back into the harbor across the bay, perhaps carrying tonight's dinner. After a busy day enjoying nature and savoring meals ranging from lobster shack settings to lovely restaurants, slip into a cozy queen size bed made up with cotton linens to rest for the next exhilarating day. Start each day breathing in the crisp Maine mornings on your private deck, with a steaming cup of coffee brewed in the fully equipped kitchen, gazing at the top of Mount Desert Island: Cadillac Mountain, lit by the morning sun or during evening, framed by gorgeous sunsets. Birch and vinyl flooring and no carpeting, cuts down on allergens for those who are sensitive. Everyone who's come here has loved the home, the location, the area and the restaurants. Guests tell us that everything is just as described in our listing. They love the deck and the view! We're a former teacher and school principal who fell in love with the area and enjoy sharing it with visitors. We take great pride in providing affordable, competent, considerate, cheerful service to our guests. We want to help you make the most of your precious vacation time in our duplex home. Available: Pack 'n' Play for infant (you provide the crib sheet). Fully equipped for short or long stays. We provide everything from coffee filters to Kleenex tissues.

About the neighbourhood
Just under an hour from Bar Harbor bustle on scenic local roads. QUIET neighborhood, private cul de sac on beautiful Schoodic Peninsula, a very clean home. Only 3 to 4 minute walk to the ocean harbor in a charming fishing village that is also a destination for summer residents who wish to be close to Acadia National Park... discerning visitors who want access to busy Bar Harbor, but want to relax in a non-touristy setting after an exhilarating day in the National Park. The house is walking distance to at least 3 eateries during summer. Within 2 miles is a gorgeous and relaxing oceanside picnic area, Frazer Point, in Acadia National Park's breathtakingly beautiful Schoodic Point section. Our EXCELLENT reviews are something we live up to!
Getting around
Arrive by car then choose to continue touring with automobile or rent bicycles and kayaks (within 1/2 mile of the house). It's an easy walk to restaurants, the grocery market for food, beer, wine and to the waterfront! During high season, two Island Explorers buses serve the Schoodic Peninsula (free) and will pick up and drop off passengers at any location along the Schoodic Loop. Or take the passenger ferry (less than 1/2 mile from the house) over to Bar Harbor and the Mt. Desert Island section of Acadia National Park.
