This lovely, smoke-free and pet-free home is located on a quiet cul de sac in the private, sought-after Ocean Heights neighborhood in the quaint, artistic, friendly village of Winter Harbor, Maine. Walk to ocean, restaurants, supermarket, shops, boat launch. (Kayak & bicycle rentals 3/10 mile. Passenger ferry (seasonal) to Bar Harbor is less than 1/2 mile.)
Our lovely Maine vacation rental home is an easy 3 minute stroll from the waterfront. This is the Schoodic Peninsula, so you are never more than yards from the ocean! 

Many people say that the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park is the most beautiful part of the Park, and the Schoodic Loop road has the best access to the dramatic views in the entire Acadia National Park!

The entrance to the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park, including Acadia National Park's new, pristine Schoodic Woods hiking/biking trails, is just 1/2 mile away from the house!
