Uncrowded. Unspoiled. Savor the Unexpected.
A coastal Maine vacation includes a visit to Schoodic Point in the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park where you can get up close to the crashing surf of the rocky coast. Enjoy hiking the trails in Acadia, kayaking, biking, bird watching, golf, puffin tours, lobster boat tours, and whale watching.
A vibrant art and antiques culture, including galleries, studios, and shops, can be found in the quaint villages of Sorrento, Sullivan, Franklin, Corea, Prospect Harbor, and downtown Winter Harbor. Schoodic Arts for All, located in historic Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor, hosts art exhibits, concerts, and performances throughout the year.
There are many choices of local fare from fine dining to casual ocean side dining and places to purchase fresh and smoked local seafood.
The Winter Harbor Lobster Festival, held on the second Saturday in August, is a widely known celebration and one of the largest lobster festivals in Maine. Visiting Schoodic
during the lobster festival makes a great family vacation.
Lodging in the Schoodic area is available at the many bed and breakfasts, cottage rentals, cabins, and campgrounds.
The Schoodic Scenic Byway and Bikeway, part of the nationally recognized Scenic Byways & Bikeway Program, is 27 miles long and weaves through the Schoodic region and into the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park. The scenery is outstanding and unspoiled, including reversing falls, views of the ocean and mountains, lobster boats, lighthouses, and islands off in the distance.
Visitors are encouraged to get off the beaten path, travel through our small villages and towns, and discover the many gems of the greater Schoodic Peninsula.
