Very relaxing and peaceful. Home is very well maintained. Great view of harbor ! The owner is very nice and takes great pride in this home and his community.

Beautifully restored, historic house makes you feel a real part of this charming, low-key, friendly town. The proximity to Schoodic Point for biking, birding, photography, and ocean watching is wonderful. We didn't even go to Acadia on MDI this year - Schoodic has what we value most (beauty, outdoor activities) without the crowds.

The lovely old, yet quite modern, Captain Bickford House in Winter Harbor was an ideal place to see all the sights, yet have a nice, quiet place to come "home" to after a busy day of seeing Mid-Coast and Downeast Maine. Acadia National Park is a 45-minute drive away, but you have your own piece of it just 5 minutes away in the Schoodic Peninsula - a much more peaceful, relaxed and enjoyable place to be. Add to that the loads of galleries and artists, stunning views around every bend, and a major airport (Bangor) only an hour away, and this is the ideal place to be! P.S. Be sure to walk over to Chase's for breakfast (or lunch or dinner) for some of the best blueberry pancakes this side of the Mississippi!

This was our 2nd stay @ Captain Bickford House and we will definitely be back. House is very comfortable, clean and lots of thoughtful touches. Love the area...the town of Winter Harbor and Grindstone Neck in particular.

Newly renovated, this place was charming, clean, and very comfortable. The owner was friendly and easy to talk to. The community is relaxed, safe, and friendly. Being close to Schoodic Point was the best. Go stay next to Mount Desert Island if you want hectic, crowded, and waiting in lines. Being away from the main part of Acadia but right next to the "annex" part of Acadia was perfect for us. We still drove to Cadillac mountain a few times but were always relieved to get back to Winter Harbor. Despite the less touristy town, they still have a beautiful, new gallery/bakery/coffee/food spot that had wifi and great espresso (My teenager and I walked there every morning). Biking was great. About a 10 mile loop from this cottage all around Schoodic Point. The reality of this rental was even better than it appeared in the listing except for the description of the view. The view is only OK but you have only to walk 2 minutes to see the harbor in full view.
