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 neighborhood 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 be within easy stroll of the village and seasonal restaurants.

Schoodic Acadia is considered by many the most dramatic, accessible 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 with 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, seasonal, 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).

Response from the owner Pat, you are very kind to acknowledge the comfort and cleanliness of the house. Vacation rental owners - the good ones - work very hard to make sure guests have sparkling clean, well equipped, comfortable and convenient accommodations for their precious vacation time, and lots of area tips and information to help them make the most of that time. My husband sometimes says, "Kath, you worry too much. You treat the people who rent the Winter Harbor house like family visiting in your own home," and I say, "Well, they are! They trust us to provide a home away from home; we have to live up to that!" It will be our pleasure to host you the next time you visit Acadia National Park, using Winter Harbor as your home base.

Response from the owner Thank you for the honor of being selected to host your stay for your vacation in Acadia National Park. You mentioned my favorite thing about the house: the view from the back deck...the mountain view is ever-changing, with fog sometimes concealing the base, at other times, the peak. We've watched eagles, gulls and osprey cavort over the open fields behind the house. And, as you probably saw, the sunsets can be a stunning backdrop to a relaxing evening of relaxation on the deck after a busy day in the Park. Thank you for your kind comments. We hope you'll return, with BOTH sons. Kathleen

Response from the owner Guests like you make having a vacation rental worth all the work and worry. I know that not all vacation rentals live up to the hopes of vacationers, and our goal is to prevent guests from feeling any disappointment when they come to stay at our Winter Harbor house. The fact that we, too, stay in the house between guests helps us know what others will need or want when they rent the home.. Thank you for honoring us with your stay, and we hope you will return.

Response from the owner Hosting people like you makes it worth doing all the hard work we do to try to provide what visitors need to make the most of their time in the Acadia National Park region. We're glad that you found a way back into the house after locking all keys and cell phones in the house. I think we'll find a way to provide a 2nd emergency key in a lockbox somewhere outside in case anyone else encounters the problem of locking all keys and phones inside the home. We certainly would love to have you and your family from Japan return to our Schoodic Peninsula vacation rental home-away-from-home someday soon. We think Winter Harbor, Maine is a truly special place and we're delighted you agree.
