     Description 


The Settlers House is the oldest remaining home on Schoodic
Peninsula. The home has a warmth & serenity that is difficult to
put
into words. Except for all the modern conveniences it feels like
my
Great-Grandmothers house once felt. Even though we love staying
here ourselves it's easier to let our guests comments speak for it.


The cape cod portion of the home is the oldest section. This style
with its sturdy post and beam construction was very popular with the
early settlers. During a more recent renovation just decade ago
in which I added the dormer windows I found that the roof is
actually put together with wooden pegs instead of nails. I also
found fragments of newspapers used for insulation prior to the civil
war. One piece had an ad for rewards for escaped runaway slaves.
A date on another of the fragments was Thursday, March 21, 1839.
The year 1765 is carved into one of the timbers under the living
room walls.

The Settlers House has been added too and renovated probably dozens
of times but its simple beauty, charm and colonial aura remains and
are inescapable.

     Attractions 


Sitting right off the exit road from the park. The home sits
between the fishing villages of Prospect Harbor and Winter Harbor.
It's about a 2 mile walk to either town unless you walk 100 feet to
the old stone fence in the back yard which is the Winter Harbor town
line. It's also four or five miles to the fishing villages of
Corea or South Gouldsboro. In the immediate area there are 4
restaurants, a few takeouts, an old fashioned 5&10, 2 grocery
stores, craft, art & antique shops, a few piers and and allot
more. There's a nine hole golf course on Grindstone neck that
overlooks Winter Harbor on one side and Frenchmans bay on the
other. If you enjoy the ocean take a sailboat cruise, lobster boat
trip, kayak the bays and meander through the coves. Ride out and
see the seals basking on the rocks on the other side of Turtle
Island, the osprey nesting near the Halibut Hole, the lighthouse on
Mark Island or the eagles at the town pier in Winter Harbor.

Schoodic Peninsula has one of the most beautiful rocky stretches of
coastline in the whole state or for that matter the country. 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". If you are willing to walk or drive a mile or two in any
direction you will see many beautiful vistas.

The home is about a mile from Acadia National Parks boundary where
you can bike or hike the trails. The first thing you will come to
after you enter the park is Fraziers Point public picnic area
overlooking the harbor and the town of Winter Harbor. There is a
pier with a float attached that many fish for mackeral, bluefish and
stripers when they run. From here you'll get a spectacular views of
the mountains, Mark Island Lighthouse and you can watch the harbor
porpoises, gulls, osprey, terns and of course the lobstermen pulling
in the days catch. If you are lucky you might see a whale. The
vistas are nothing less than magnificent and many have spent the
entire vacations right there. The gray and pink granite coastline
is a sight you won't soon forget. Next, hike or drive to the top
of Schoodic Mountain to see some breathtaking sunrises and
sunsets. When you get out to the point relax or picnic and gaze
straight out into the Atlantic Ocean. It can be really spectacular
if there has been a storm at sea. People will come from all around
to watch the waves break over the rocks.

There is freshwater swimming and canoeing at Jones Pond (5 miles
away). Or enjoy fishing for landlocked salmon, brook trout, lake
trout and bass.

If you are a leaf peeper and plan on visiting to view New Englands
fall foliage in all it's colors. The leaves generally reach their
peak in October and can be quite spectacular.

If you just can't get relaxed and need a little more excitement you
can always take the ferry to Bar Harbor. Along the way you will see
seals, porpoises, ospreys and round many small islands. If you go
early in the morning you might see deer coming out to the rocks to
lick the salt. You could also see a moose swimming between the
mainland and the islands. There are also bald eagles, sea turtles,
whales. And, some of the cottages, camps and cabins out there on
the islands can really take you back in time. It's a really
beautiful trip and the views from the ocean give you an entirely
different perspective.
