                                                                                                      I was born in Maine (too many years ago to discuss!) so I know this to be true, the Schoodic Surf Cottage is Maine the way it used to be. As others have said, the photos do not do this cottage and its location justice. The house is larger than it appears (1,800 sq. feet), this was on the internet information, but I did not pay attention, so I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the décor. It has a cottage feel, but includes many personal touches that make you feel right at home. My family owns vacation property, so I understand how hard the owners have worked. I also know they do a great job keeping the home clean. Yes, clean! You just never know when renting, do you? The phone numbers to the owner, caretaker and rental agent are posted where you feel you really could call if there was anything wrong. The owner has even put together a great book about the area to help with day trip decisions. Prospect Harbor is small (no red lights), but the people are friendly. There is a deli just down the street and a cute library with a lovely view. The next town, Winter Harbor has a couple restaurants, art galleries and a neat 5&10. Also, an IGA if you need supplies. Ellsworth is only 30 minutes away and has everything from McDonalds, Super Wal-Mart and a cute downtown with good restaurants. The beautiful Schoodic Point portion of Acadia National Park is only five miles from the cottage. Bar Harbor is about 45 minutes away. Now for the best part - the ocean view is amazing. The rocks are real Maine pink granite. Yes, large granite rocks, not pebbles or sand, and real deep water Atlantic Ocean, not that Maine mud at low tide. It’s the real thing! Waves crashing and everything. Lobster buoys, lobster boats and life-altering sunrises (sleep with the shades to the ocean up). There are Adirondack chairs and even a hammock. I don’t know if you can get a view like this anywhere else. If so, I have yet to find it.
