Winter Harbor Home
2 Bedrooms / 1 Bathroom / Sleeps 6
Forest Road house in Winter Harbor, a good find
July 2, 2014
This was a very pleasant stay in a quiet spot at the end of a short street with deep woods backing up the yard. Short walk to shops, a bit longer to the ferry/bus. The two bedrooms and bathroom are up some rather steep upstairs, but my wife had no trouble climbing them despite usually having difficulty with stairs. There is a very nice deck in back overlooking the yard and woods. A large second living room in the back has a sliding door to the deck. There are several tvs throughout the house, and the internet worked well. The large tv in the front living room is a bit tricky because "system off" on the remote must be used to turn it off; otherwise you might have to reset the system. We think the large tv should be in the larger living room at the back of the house. The sofas in the front living room are a bit soft (for us). The double beds were firm and adequately comfortable. The large yard was great for our two dogs, which the owners accepted free of charge. The kitchen, dining area, and facilities were very satisfactory. The hot water in the shower could get very hot very quickly, but it took some fidgeting to get the right temperature. Next door to the property, a house is being built--just the cement foundation was in place in June, but construction could begin any time. We had very friendly conversations with locals throughout town. There's a very nice mile-long walk down Grindstone Road to the water, passing through the golf course and by various "cottages." In July and August, the bus meets the ferry and circles through Schoodic Peninsula for free. We love visiting this town, and this residence was a good find.
