The Bickford house is a great place to stay, in a majestic town. The owner is very friendly and takes great pride in his home and town. The house is very clean close to schoodic point. Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

About the neighbourhood
Bring your bike(rentals are available in the area)and ride around our lovely town or take a trip around Schoodic point. This is also a great place to go kayaking. Paddle out to an offshore island or just meander along the shore and inlets. The is also a 9 hole golf course in town and every hole has a view of the ocean.

Winter Harbor is a working fishing community and summer playground. We are located on the tip of the Schoodic Peninsula at the entrance to Acadia National Park, Schoodic Section, a must see for those visiting Maine. Visit us in August and experience the Annual Lobster Festival on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Where live music, a craft fair, parade, boat races & of course lobsters are the main event and shut down the town streets for the event.
