During the summer of 2014 we had Arthur Frommer (Frommer travel guides) stay for 10 days.
Winter Harbor is a working fishing community and summer playground. We are located on the tip of the Schoodic Peninsula at the entrance to Acadia National Park, Schoodic Section, a must see for those visiting Maine. Visit us in August and experience the Annual Lobster Festival on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Where live music, a craft fair, parade, boat races & of course lobsters are the main event and shut down the town streets for the event.
The Schoodic section of Acadia National Park is home to the Schoodic Education and Research Center. This is the only mainland section of Acadia National Park and is known for it's rocky point where during storms the waves can produce 60ft tall walls of ocean spray.
Around the first 2 weeks of August the area host the Schoodic Arts festival (check their site for exact dates).
The Schoodic peninsula is also the home to many local crafts people and artists. We have everything from jewelry made of sea glass to Art galleries with fine paintings.

Wonderful historic home

This is a beautiful historic home that is well maintained. It is located in the very quiet town of Winter Harbor which is 15 minutes from Schoodic Peninsula segment of Acadia National Park. Wonderful hiking and bird watching opportunities. Highly recommend.
