vacation rental description

The Settlers House is the oldest remaining home on Schoodic Peninsula. The home has a warmth & serenity that is difficult toput into words. Except for all the modern conveniences it feels like my Great-Grandmothers house once felt. Even though we love staying here ourselves it's easier to let our guests comments speak for it.

Not only is Settlers House  a great vacation home for couples and families.   But with the king and queen bedrooms and bathrooms being at opposite ends of the home and with all of the bedrooms being apart from each other  it is also  the perfect getaway for two couples. And when you are ready to enjoy some beautiful scenery or exercise just get on your bike or walk the park loop in front of the house.

activities and attractions in Acadia Maine

Schoodic Point has one of the most beautiful rocky stretches of coastline in the whole state or for that matter the country.    We've had many artists vacation with us over the years and one thing they all keep repeating is that "the area is an artists dream come true".   There is a free shuttle bus that tours the area in the summer and it travels by the house every half hour or so.  So just stand out at the road and wave.    They will be glad to pick you up.

In the immediate area there are many shops, restaurants and pounds to buy your lobsters plus a lot more.    When you are in the mood for lobsters you are in luck because just a few doors down is Bob's.  His sons bring them in to him daily so they can't be much fresher and it's even sweeter that he's usually the cheapest place around.  Grindstone Neck has a nine hole golf course with views of the ocean from every hole.  If you enjoy the ocean get in a kayak and meander through the bays and coves.   Ride out and see the seals basking on the rocks on the other side of Turtle Island, the osprey nesting near the Halibut Hole or the lighthouse on Mark Island.

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. But still overall it's generally quiet here (compared to where you probably live) except for the lobster festival and a few other things. Once a year the entire area goes on holiday. Usually the second Saturday in August. The day starts off with a 5K road race in the morning and ends with a parade in the evening. Of course there are lobster dinners, barbecues and a lot of other things. It's always a good time.

It is a mile from Acadia National Parks entrance where you can bike or hike the trails.   The first thing you will come to after you enter the park is Frazier’s Point picnic area that juts out on a finger of land overlooking the harbor.   There is a long pier with a float attached that people fish for mackerel, bluefish and striper's when they run.   From here you'll have spectacular views of the mountains, Mark Island Lighthouse, lobster boats pulling in the days catch, harbor porpoises, seabirds and eagles soaring about the harbor. On other days you can watch the sail boats from the yacht club race.  The vistas are nothing less than magnificent and many have spent the entire vacations right there.   I know, I spend enough time there myself.  We love to picnic by the fire in the evenings .  Words can't describe it.  Anyway the gray and pink granite coastline is a sight you won't soon forget.

 Next, hike or drive to the top of Schoodic Head to see some breathtaking sunrises, sunsets and a commanding view of the area, ocean and islands.    From there, head out to the point relax or picnic and gaze straight out into the Atlantic.  It can be really spectacular if there has been a storm at sea.   People come from all around to watch the waves break over the rocks.

There is also freshwater swimming and canoeing at Jones Pond (5 miles away).  Or enjoy fishing for landlocked salmon, brook trout, lake trout and bass. If you are a leaf peeper and plan on visiting to view New England’s fall foliage in all it's colors.   The leaves generally reach their peak in October and can be quite spectacular.

And finally if you would like to see the coast of Maine as it is meant to be seen. Hop on the ferry. In fact buy an unlimited weekly pass at the dock. It's just about a 7 mile leisurely 30 minute trip. First out by Mark Island Light, then around Grindstone point and then either through the narrows between Turtle and Spectacle Islands or through the Halibut Hole and finally back into Frenchamns Bay to the docks in downtown  Bar Harbor. There is no better way to get there or anywhere else for that matter. If you go early in the morning you might see deer coming out to the rocks to lick the salt. Sometimes and quite often as a matter of fact moose swim between the mainland and the islands. On the trip you’ll see seals, porpoises, ospreys and round many beautiful islands with the occasional cabins and see vistas that will last a lifetime.

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