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". 

Guest comments

Atractively decorated one bedroom vacation rental apartment in a quiet coastal village.  Recently renovated and refurnished in the winter of 2012 after a long term tenant of thirteen years had a change of circumstances and moved back home to Ohio.  In fact, when we had to come up with a name for the apartment, he had lived there so long and had become such a part of everyones lives we were seriously tempted to call it "Fred's Place" and privately still do refer to it that way but that's another story.  Anyway, I think my favorite feature is the black granite and white ceramic tiled kitchen floor.  We try very hard to maintain it very clean and in above average condition.  And except for a couple minor improvements not pictured what you see in the pictures below is what you get.  Situated a little bit over a mile from the park, less than a mile from the ferry and a little over a half mile from the ocean and center of town.  It's perfect for a party of two persons on a budget.

Welcome to Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor, Maine.
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 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 volume of people and traffic that MDI sees.  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)
