Brand New warm, cozy and beautiful vacation rental cottage located
in Winter Harbor. Enjoy being near the ocean, the feeling of being
in a cottage out in the countryside and yet you are right in town
(sort of).

The cottage is completely furnished (and decorated) with everything
we can think of that you may need. As like our other rentals we try
not to do things just half right. The interior has an open ceiling..
In addition some of the walls have been left so that the natural
wood is visible to give it that just the right ambiance. Except for
the bathroom the floors are natural eastern white pine finished the
old fashioned way with tung oil.

I built this the way I wanted it, a place having the illusion of
being rustic and yet beautiful. And all the comforts and
conveniences of home. Pictures don't really don't do it justice. You
have to see it, especially in the evenings.

If you are like me. You want something special. You don't want to
walk into a rental that looks like the house you just left. Then
this may be the place for you also.



One bedroom - Queen sized bed with a wrought iron antique-like
frame, end tables, lamps, dresser and chair. (Linens included)

Large bathroom Shower, hair dryer. (Towels and washcloths included.)

Living room - Futon and coffee table, armchair and end table, TV
VCR/DVD and TV stand (collection of videos and DVD movies also),
hall stand with CD player, books, magazines and cast iron gas log
propane fireplace.

Kitchen - Microwave, coffee maker , toaster, pots, pans silverware,
dishes, glasses and cups (etc. etc.).

Front porch - Lobster cooker, charcoal barbecue, double rocker, two
chairs and patio table.

Additionally - Washer and dryer. Wireless internet access. No
telephone so bring your cell
phone. Porta crib & highchair available upon

To sum it up - The cottage is completely furnished (and decorated)
with everything we can think of that you may need even including
complimentary items that you may forget like coffee, tea,
toothpaste, shampoo, razor and more. As like our other rentals we
try not to do things just half right.



The Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park in the small
fishing village of Winter Harbor has one of the most beautiful rocky
stretches of coastline in the whole state or for that matter the
country. There are plenty of things to see and do.

Explore Schoodic Peninsula with its many beauties and relaxed pace.
Enjoy the local seafood, explore the old fashioned 5&10, shop the
grocery store, craft, art & antique shops. Bike the park or hike its
trails. Oops, I forgot to mention the nine hole golf course on
Grindstone neck that overlooks our harbor on one side and Frenchmans
bay on the other.

About a mile from the cottage is the entrance to the Schoodic Point
section of Acadia National Park. The first thing you will come to
after you enter the park is Fraziers Point public picnic area
overlooking the harbor and town. There are a couple really private
spots that are great for just sitting around the fire in the evening
and listening to the waves lapping the shore. There is a pier with a
float attached that many fish for mackeral, bluefish and stripers
when they run. Anyway, from here you'll see spectacular views of the
mountains, Mark Island Lighthouse and you can watch the harbor
porpoises, loons, eagles, ospreys, gulls, 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. I know I've spent enough
time 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

For freshwater swimming, canoeing or fishing for landlocked salmon,
brook trout, lake trout and bass try Jones Pond. There is another
lake close-by that I can tell you about when you get here but I
would never talk about it in detail on the internet. It is about a
miles walk down a path and through the woods. Has a sandy beach from
which you look right out over the lake with a mountain rising behind
it. It is a hike but once you are there it's remote, quiet and flat
out gorgeous.

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 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 might also see a
deer or moose swimming between land and the islands. Moose regularly
swim clear across the bay. There are also the occasional sea
turtles, whales and one of the most unusual looking fish you have
probably ever seen, a sunfish. They seem to average around 400-600
pounds Downeast but can get as large as 3000 pounds. They are round
in shape and have a fin that gives the first impression of a shark
in the water. You can get right up and pet them if you like. Most
people think they are dead or sick when first seen and when I first
glimpsed one I thought it was the front half of a great white shark.
My second thought was, what could eat that and I think I want to go
home now! Seriously though they are very friendly, curious and
primarily eat jellyfish. And finally let's not forget, some of the
cottages, cabins and camps out there on the islands can really take
you back to a different era. It's a really beautiful trip and the
views from the ocean give you an entirely different perspective.
