Central location to enjoy down east Maine. Our family had a wonderful week in Winter Harbor staying at this property. . The Schoodic Peninsula and surrounding towns are a reflection of true coastal Maine. Not full of tourists and gimmicks. The home was exactly as portrayed in all of the pictures. The house is very nice and comfortable, however, not a place for the young folks to run wild. Loved the beautiful outdoor patio, chairs and fire pit. I would recommend this place if you want a very reasonably priced comfortable place, I would rent it again.

We were able to secure this property with just one day notice. Bob was extremely helping in expediting the process. All out needs were met and we had a wonderful stay in Maine. Thank you Bob. I would highly recommend this place if you want a very reasonably priced very comfortable place and don't mind driving an hour to bar harbor I would rent it again.

Great location. Perfect for children, playground across the street and unit at the end of the street. Owners were fantastic. They were very helpful when I had questions. Backyard and grounds are clearly cared for and they include a lovely patio with picnic table and fire pit. It is a super place to hang out during the day or evening. The only downfall, in the unit there are alot of decorative "trinkets" and "stuff" on shelves, dressers, kitchen storage areas so not a lot of places to put personal stuff or food if you intend to stay for longer then 2 or 3 days. Also, if you have kids, many trinkets are breakable, so advise moving out of hands reach. Other then that, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to rent a place in WH Maine.

The owners are very kind. Winter Harbor is a quaint small town. Schoodic Peninsula is beautiful. The condo is small for a large group but perfect for four or 5. If children are involved, it can sleep more. It was nice to see a lovely part of Maine.

Bob's house is nice and cozy! It's about 1 hour away from Bar Harbor, but only about 15min to Scoodic point. We had 9 people and we all fit! There are plenty of extra clean towels and linens in the closet as well. The house is nicely decorated with an antique/ocean feel. The kitchen is well-stocked with tools and pots, and lobster cooking and eating equipment was provided. There was even a pamphlet on the wall on how to cook/eat Maine lobster. Bob arrived on the same day as us, we were able to talk. He is a very nice person! The neighborhood is also very nice and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay!
