Photos and Description of the Winter Harbor vacation house rental

3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Winter Harbor is a quaint working fishing community and summer playground.

Cheerful, comfortable, close, convenient…all describe our home nestled in this quaint fishing village where one can enjoy what Maine has to offer and then return to a quiet home where only Maine’s birds or a harbor’s foghorn can be heard so one can relax, reflect and rest up for a new day of adventures.

There are 3 bedrooms, all eclectically decorated with Maine themes, country quilts, artwork, antiques to provide that pleasurable “visiting grandma’s” venue yet still incorporating today’s amenities of a newly updated galley kitchen complete with local Deer Isle granite countertops with bar seating, microwave, refrigerator, ceramic cook-top, coffee maker, toaster, small oven/broiler, pots, pans, china, silverware, washer/dryer. Our open concept dining/living room features TV w/DVD & VCR player, movie library, radio/CD player, and wireless internet. Bed linens, towels, paper products are provided. There are 2 full bathrooms, one newly finished with stall shower and pedestal sink.

On our back porch one can enjoy having a private moment with morning coffee and a book or having a BBQ or lobster on our outdoor grill. New this year is a lovely, stone patio with a 3 foot stone fire-pit. There is an awesome playground across from our home that our young visitors would certainly enjoy and parents can view easily. We are on the end of a dead-end street so traffic is very limited. We also have some board games, and outdoor toys for those who would like to partake. We have several bikes in our garage for you use and pleasure.

Kayaks can be rented easily from locations mentioned in our “Welcome to our Home” book as well as other attractions, ferry & bus schedules, shops, hikes and of course the magnificent Acadia National Park’s Schoodic Peninsula whose entrance is a short ten minute drive from our house and covers nearly 2500 acres where sightseeing, hiking, biking, picnicking are all there for your enjoyment.

A free excursion bus sponsored by LLBean picks up passengers at the end of our road at Rte. 186 to take folks around Winter Harbor and Schoodic Peninsula throughout the day during the summer season allowing passengers to get off the bus at a spot and be picked up later on another bus run. We are a few minutes’ walk to the ocean, restaurants, grocery store, lobster pounds, post office, public library, historic society museum, artists’ studios, bank, farmers’ market, a unique 5&10 cent store, ice cream parlor, antique and handmade artisan crafts shops.

The nearby Bar Harbor Ferry on Sargent St. can take you over to Bar Harbor which serves as a leisurely transportation vehicle as well as a sight-seeing boat ride on one of the prettiest bays in Maine. There is also a public boat launch, golf course, and our historic Hammond Hall where many varied, live entertainment performances are held throughout the year—all just moments away from our doorstep!

Swimming is available off the rocky shores or one can seek enjoyment at Jones and Flanders Ponds with their sandy beaches and fresh waters which are just a short distance away where one can do some boating or fishing as well. Also, the area has vineyards hosting tours and tastings, historic buildings, unique shops, a variety of eateries, other quaint fishing villages, art galleries, antique shops, hiking trails, educational science and environmental centers, and more of Maine’s beautiful coastline, mountains and lakes…all beckoning folks to come and explore.

Keywords: 3 BR, 2 full baths, galley kitchen, deck, patio w/firepit, 4 min walk to town.
