Great People, great place

This was my first Boondocker experience and the hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. They have a beautiful place on the water and are well located for visiting Acadia National Park. If I ever make it back to Maine, I would definitely want to see them again. Great job!

A wonderful place to stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful stay at Binnshire. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed walking down to the water and gazing at the magnificent view. The site was quiet, and surrounded by pines, thank you for a wonderful visit!

Wonderful time in Winter Harbour Maine

We had a great time exploring the Schoodic area with help from our most gracious hosts, who shared their waterfront view with us and provided a wealth of information. We bought lobster from the Corea Coop and had delicious haddock chowder on the Corea Wharf. The 5 mile Buck Cove- Schoodic Head -Anvil trail in the Park was challenging but rewarding; and the shuttle ride back to the visitor center was very welcome.
We would definitely like to return in the future.

like in paradise

this is a very quiet, peaceful and idyllic host in a magnificent natural setting, just a few steps from the wonderful shore, with two great people as host, very friendly and helpful.
I have to come back.
