About George & Sharon DeFries

I was born in the area and attended the local schools, graduating from the local high school.

Why George & Sharon DeFries chose Downeast and Acadia

This home has been in my family since 1885. This house has been passed down thru the generations. I have many fond memories of time spent in this home and in the town of Winter Harbor.

What makes this house unique

Large yard & field to play games & enjoy the outside, with ocean views from the house and master bedroom. You can walk to everything in the town of Winter Harbor. Acadia National Park-Schoodic close by.

Perfect for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for relaxation and the beach is two houses away. Everything you need is there. They have bikes, fishing poles, binoculars and all the comforts of home. My 11 y/o son described it as cozy and perfect for vacation. The kitchen is very well stocked. Winter Harbor is a lovely town and has that rustic New England feel. Sharon is also wonderful and called the first day to answer any questions about the house. She has great knowledge of the area and was full of helpful advice. There are also two restaurants at the end of the street at the beach end that are wonderful. I would absolutely stay here again.

Authentic Maine experience

  • 5 of 5

This charming home was perfect for our family of four. It is in a great location in the quaint fishing village of Winter Harbor. Its close proximity to the Schoodic Peninsula in Acadia National Park is so nice. Everything you need to make your stay pleasant was in this house. We were very comfortable during the whole visit. The homeowners are very responsive to any problem that you might have. If you want to be in a busy area of the Maine coast (like the middle of Bar Harbor), this may not be your ideal location. However, if you want a quieter, less commercial experience, consider this home.

A small harbor town experience

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. It is centrally located to the town Winter Harbor. It is a short walk to the grocery store, 5 &10, post office, ice cream shop, harbor and ferry. There are two restaurants almost next door. There is a seafood vendor a half mile from the house, along with a smoked seafood vendor as well. We cooked all of our meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed the sea breeze that came through the windows of the house. We spent a few afternoons at Grindstone Neck watching the waves in the harbor. We spent a day biking Schoodic Point (part of Acadia National Park) and a day over in Bar Harbor by taking the short ferry ride between Winter Harbor and Bar Harbor. There is public transportation once you are in Bar Harbor to further explore Acadia National Park if you choose. My husband and I have been to this area many times and always find plenty to do in the area. If you enjoy wines, make sure to stop at Bartlett for a sampling of fruit wines from bone dry to very sweet.
