Acadia National Park at Schoodic Point in Winter Harbor has one of the most beautiful rocky stretches of coastline in the whole state or for that matter the country.  The waves breaking against the rocks can be truly spectacular especially if there has been a storm at sea.  We've had many artists vacation with us over the years and one thing they all keep repeating is that "the area is an artists dream come true".

(The building has been given a facelift this winter; new siding, windows, doors, electrical boxes moved to the side of the building, etc. Sorry I won't have a new pic until spring.)
Attractive and tastefully decorated affordable one bedroom vacation rental apartment in a coastal village.  Except for the decorations and pictures that my wife seems to be fond of changing what you see in the pictures below is exactly what you get.  A very nice clean apartment perfect for thrifty travelers like myself.  Enjoy hiking trails, bicycling, fishing, kayaking, golf, swimming, picnicing and experience a little bit of life in the slow lane.  Treat yourself to the real acadia downeast.

Welcome to Winter Harbor in Downeast Maine.  The way life should be.
Here you can have remote, secluded, quiet or crowds anytime you want, it's just simply your call.
Schoodic Peninsula 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 your bank.  Two weeks during the summer there is an arts festival nestled around a one day lobster festival and year round just about weekly there is a program, theater, concert, dance or some other event.
Acadia National Park is the most visited national park in the country and the majority of that onslaught is to Mount Desert Island.  Winter Harbor is a smaller seaside community across the bay from Bar Harbor with the only section of ANP on the mainland.  Fortunately we don't experience the sheer daily volume of people, traffic or cruise ships that MDI sees.  (If we did I'd have to move and that would be a shame.)
The entrance road to the Schoodic District is a few hundred yards down Main Street where you'll find miles and miles of hiking and biking trails.  At Frazers Point there is a large picnic area with picnic tables, many with fire rings that is open to the public 24/7.  Frazers also has a long pier and float that jets out into the harbor for fishing.  The views from the seaside loop around the park are georgeous as you pass the Mark Island Lighthouse at the entrance to the harbor.  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 Point itself with ample parking.  The expansive ledges that reach down into the sea with the waves breaking against them are an impressive sight.
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 trip.     (more)
