Lovely home with plenty of room for adults and children. Just down the road from the marina for the Bar Harbor Ferry. The Island Explorer bus will pick you up right in front of the house. Within walking distance to shops and galleries downtown. Our house is an upside down house with bedrooms on the first floor and dining, living and kitchen on the upper level.

This was the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at. The property was beautiful and close to everything, but far away enough to be a relaxing retreat. You can walk to the ferry to Bar Harbor, can bike ride to Acadia Naional Park, or you can sit on the front porch and just enjoy the view. The owners have gone above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The beds are comfortable to beautiful linens. The four bunk beds make it fun and spacious for the kids. The owners have a binder of ferry schedules and things to do. If you forgot a hair dryer they have one. If you want to cook lobster they have everything you need. They had homemade blueberry jam in the kitchen for us when we arrived. I wish I could give this property higher then five stars.
What a great house the upstairs was great. All open so bright, goes right out to the deck just so relaxing. We walked down the street to the Schoodic Ferry and went to BarHarbor. Defintly a must do the girls were great, what a beautiful ride. We had our yellow lab with us and everybody was so pet friendly. The house is so close to schoodic point which is breathtaking. The owner was great with replying to my emails and the blueberry jam was a nice touch. The house was spotless. I would recommend this house if your looking to relax and get away.
What a great home to rent when visiting down east Maine. Thank You for offering a spacious, clean, fun home. Great for families and friends, the kitchen and dexk combo make a great place to power down for the day. A short walk to the local eateries and to the ferry to Bar Harbor make this a great home base. And next to georgeous Schoodic peninsula, we will be back.
If you are looking for a peaceful setting for a relaxing family vacation this is the place! The house is immaculate and the owners have thought of everything you and your family need to have a wonderful coastal vacation. It started off with wonderful communication from Lori prior to our trip and throughout our planning right through the thoughtful welcome package greeting us at our arrival. The binders of information about the surrounding area including menus, maps, tide times, bus schedules, and special events were very helpful. Our daughters range in age from 11- 16 and they enjoyed taking the bikes available at the house into town and on the many bike trails around Acadia. They also had fun kayaking in the bay. The house is set up with bedrooms on the first floor which allows for wonderful coastal breezes at night. Overall the house stays very cool and comfortable throughout the entire day with the wonderful harbor breeze and great shade trees on the property. We had so much fun exploring during the day and then relaxing at night with puzzles and games all provided at the house. The town of Winter Harbor is welcoming and provides a relaxing atmosphere while still offering activities if you choose to participate. We enjoyed events during teh Arts for All Festival and everyone we met at the events was so welcoming and gave us such great information of sights and events. The owners of the art gallery at the end of the street are amazingly nice people. My husband and I are not very literate about various types of art but enjoy seeing interesting works and we had a great time talking with the gallery owners and getting a personal tour of the art and their home (which is the gallery). This was our first time renting a house for vacation and using HomeAway; my whole family agrees this was one of the more affordable and most relaxing vacations we have ever been on! We were very sad to leave the house and town and look forward to returning in future years. Thank you Lori and family for allowing us to share your Winter Harbor Haven!
We enjoyed the house. We loved the upstairs which was where we spend most of our time. The view from the deck was nice! The blueberry jam was a hit !!I Winter Harbor is more peaceful than Bar Harbor. The scenery is breath taking !! We enjoyed meeting Lori's Mom ! I would recommend staying here !!
