vacation rental description

When Maine started using the phrase "The way life should be" they had this place in mind.   And if you find that hard to believe - well take my word for it they couldn't have found any better spot anyway.  If you must stay on the water then this is the place and believe me you simply can not get any closer.  You'll be lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the surf breaking against the rocks on the beach right outside your door.  The views are spectacular to say the least.

Make the last turn at the end of the point and you've reached your destination.  Don't worry about missing it.  You can't go any farther without a boat.  Sitting at the end of the lane this three bedroom cottage is in town but still off the beaten path so to speak.  It's private and quiet and it is easy feel like you are all alone in the world except of course for the lobster boats pulling their traps in the morning and the resident eagles soaring overhead all day.  From here you will be able to walk to all the shops and everything else the town has to offer.  Or hike to the park to enjoy all it's natural treasures.  Treat yourself this year.  Experience a little bit of life in the slow lane and a real downeast gem.

One other thing I should mention are the grounds. You will have 1000 feet of private oceanfront including a small sandy beach. You can hunt the rocks for treasures, get your feet wet, or just sit and watch nature at its finest

activities and attractions in Acadia Maine

Explore and enjoy Schoodic Point with its many beauties and relaxed pace. From here all the shops, stores, and restaurants are just a short walk. You can rent bikes for exploring. Play golf - the course is saddled on two sides by ocean. There are multiple pounds to buy your dinner. And you won't find lobster cheaper anywhere else. If you are here when the lobsters are shedding their shells do yourself a favor and try them. They are tender and sweet and what most locals prefer. You won't get them anywhere else.

Throughout the year there are different programs, theaters, concerts, dances and many other cultural events mostly on weekends. Then during the summer there is an arts festival for two weeks which usually starts around the first of August.  Still it's generally quiet here except for the lobster festival. Once a year the entire area goes on holiday. Usually the second Saturday in August. The day starts off with road races in the morning and ends with a parade in the evening. Of course there are lobster dinners and other food. It's always a good time.

During the tourist season free shuttle bus makes tours of Schoodic Point, the park and area before returning. Less than a mile up Main Street is the entrance to the park. There is no entrance fee required. The view from the road that loops around the point is magnificent. You can while the day away relaxing and taking in the spectacular views of the islands, sea and wildlife. Walk the bluffs, wander out on the rocks and picnic or bring back mussels for dinner. Have a cook out or lobster bake and relax into the evening around the campfire if you like listening to the loons after dark at Fraziers Point where there are picnic tables and fire pits for barbecues.. On any given day you'll see lobster boats pulling in the days catch and eagles soaring about the harbor. On other days you can watch the sail boats from the yacht club race.

The hiking trails in the park provide a natural perspective of the park while hikers meander through the forest and climb granite outcroppings. Along the way you can pick wild blueberries, cranberries and apples from overgrown trees on old farmsteads. Several islands of various sizes, also part of Acadia National Park, are close to shore including Little Moose Island, Schoodic Island, Pond Island, and Rolling Island. A couple of which you can get to at low tide.

Schoodic Head, the highest point on the peninsula. Its 440 foot peak offers panoramic views to the north of the peninsula and mountains, south into the open Atlantic Ocean, Frenchman Bay and Cadillac Mountain to the west. On a clear day you can see east to the Petit Manan lighthouse and preserve on the next peninsula over.

The most southern tip of the point has granite outcroppings and pounding surf. People come from all over to watch the surf as storms or hurricanes passing by sometimes hundreds of miles away break against the rocks and throw spray fifty feet or more in the air. It really is something to see. There is ample parking space for visitors and it is well worth the trip any day.

I could go on and on but I met someone at the docks last year from NJ and he summed it up better than I can "its like being in heaven". Do yourself a favor this year, come see!


Hope you have a great time wherever you end up. ~ Wes
