Description of the Acadia vacation home rental

The home is the oldest remaining home on Schoodic Point and it 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.

Area Information

Schoodic Point 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".

The home sits right on the park loop just over Winter Harbor town line. It's just about a mile and a half walk to the center of town. And it is a great hike or bike ride but then again why walk? There is a free shuttle bus that tours Schoodic Point in the summer and it travels by the house every half hour or so. So just stand out at the road and wave. They will be glad to pick you up.

In the immediate area there are shops, stores, businesses, restaurants and pounds to buy your lobsters plus allot more. When you are in the mood for lobsters you are in luck because just a few doors down is Bob's. His sons bring them in to him daily so they can't be much fresher and it's even sweeter that he's usually the cheapest place around. On Grindstone Neck there is a golf course that's surrounded by ocean. If you enjoy the ocean get in a kayak and meander through the bays and 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 or the lighthouse on Mark Island.

It is a mile from Acadia National Parks entrance where you can bike or hike the trails. The first thing you will come to after you enter the park is Frazier’s Point picnic area that juts out on a finger of land overlooking the harbor. There is a long pier with a float attached that people fish for mackerel, bluefish and striper's when they run. From here you'll have spectacular views of the mountains, Mark Island Lighthouse, lobster boats pulling in the days catch, harbor porpoises, seabirds and also eagles soaring about the harbor. On other days you can watch the sail boats from the yacht club race. The vistas are nothing less than magnificent and many have spent the entire vacations right there. I know, I spend enough time there myself. We love to picnic by the fire in the evenings. Words can't describe it. Anyway the gray and pink granite coastline is a sight you won't soon forget.

Throughout the year there are different programs, theaters, concerts, dances and many other cultural events mostly on weekends. Then during the summer there is an arts festival for two weeks which usually starts around the first of August. But still overall it's generally quiet here (compared to where you probably live) except for the Lobster Festival and a few other things. Once a year the entire area goes on holiday. Usually the second Saturday in August. The day starts off with a 5k road race in the morning and ends with a parade in the evening. Of course there are lobster dinners, barbecues and a lot of other things. It's always a good time.

Whatever you desire, sightseeing, shopping, hiking, biking, kayaking, the list goes on. You can have it or get to it from here.

Anyway, wherever you vacation this year. Hope it's a great one. ~ Wes

Awesome getaway

We really enjoyed this house and the locale - it was very well kept/clean, everything in working order and very quiet. Being on the Schoodic Peninsula is a superb way to relax and enjoy the Maine coast at its finest. Wes was super-easy to deal with and very responsive from initial booking through to checkout. Can't say anything negative at all about the experience. Highly recommend and look forward to staying there again at some point in the future.

The beauty of Maine

There is much to say, it can be summerized in a small statement. Wicked Awesome. The house was beautiful, the area was relaxing, the people were inviting and welcoming. Let's not forget, the Lobster was like butter.
