About the area

The Schoodic Point section of Acadia Nat'l Park is a great spot to hike, bike, paint or simply relax and watch the waves crash along the rocky shoreline, some of the best in Maine. Hop on the ferry to Bar Harbor and take your bikes along and/or use the Island Explorer bus (free!) and hit all the area destinations or go out on a whale watch.

Getting here

Bar Harbor airport is nearest, though Bangor International is also an option. There's a ferry in nearby Winter Harbor to take you straight to the heart of Bar Harbor, across Frenchman Bay. In Bar Harbor, there are free buses to take you to various parts of the island and park.

Interaction with guest

Cottage is wonderfully secluded and guests enjoy peace, quiet and independence. A notebook on site provides all necessary information about the cottage and surrounding area, though I am, of course, available by text or email if there are any questions.

“Perfect Place in Maine”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2015

My family of 6 stayed here a week in July and made it our HQ for our Maine adventures. It is the PERFECT place! It is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. It's location to the water (surrounded on 3 sides) makes every time of the day a painting. The kids played in the tide pools and found all sizes and shapes of hermit crabs, jelly fish, mussels/clams and even a starfish! Didn't really even need to leave the house as there was so much to take in. Because of how beautiful and relaxing it is at the house, my family actually spent the evenings talking and playing games together--something that we don't get the chance to do at home very often, especially with teenagers. Priceless time spent. Thank you, Kim, for being so great to work with and letting us experience Baypoint! The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for a large family and the wood work and amenities at the house were more than we could ask for. This stay was TRULY a vacation we will not forget. Thanks again and we most certainly would recommend this place to others and would definitely stay here a again.

“Spectacular house!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2015

This property is amazing. It sets out on a beautiful point with panorama views of the ocean/bays on three sides. Everywhere in the house and on the property has terrific views. And the second floor roof deck is the perfect place to enjoy the sunset. We relaxed more than we can remember, and look forward to coming back next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you for spending your vacation at Bay Point - we look forward to having you come back for another visit soon!!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This cottage has been perfect for our family vacation, which included our three grandchildren (ages 8 and 10). We swam every day, either at the shore on the property or at the nearby sand beach and enjoyed all manner of wildlife. We watched the lobster boats haul their catch, and ate lobsters on the shore. The house is spacious, airy and user-friendly; it is very tastefully designed and furnished. The property manager is friendly and accessible and answered all our questions. This has been our second vacation at this cottage and it remains our favorite. Recommended for those who want peace and quiet and gorgeous vistas a few feet from the bay. -- Judy R. August 2014

The house was immaculate! It was equipped with everything we needed - and more! The view from the house was amazing. It was so very peaceful, tranquil and serene. My children (ages 4 & 5) loved playing by the water - the cold didn't stop them. We made two trips to Acadia National Park which was spectacular. We did some hiking and saw some great wildlife. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would not hesitate to recommend this home. As a side note, the house is very isolated (which we loved), but it was a bit of a ride to get to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. -- Sarah S. July 2012

We just got back from a week stay at this home. The home is gorgeous inside and out. The house was clean, the amenities in the home were great, and the views were so nice. We brought our four and five year old with us, and they had lots of room to run. You are isolated here. The beach is kind of rocky and lots of kelp. It is not a place for swimming .Our children were entertained exploring the tide pools, digging in the sandy area, and running around the expansive property! If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, this is the place for you. The Schoodic area of Acadia National Park is a short drive away and a great place to hike, picnic, and see wildlife without the crowds that you see in the Acadia National Park located near Bar Harbor. The property manager is great. Excellent communication. -- Julie O. July 2011
