Birch Harbor, Gouldsboro, Maine
The Settlers House is the oldest remaining home on Schoodic Point. The home has a warmth & serenity that is difficult to put into words. Except for all the modern conveniences it feels like my Great-Grandmothers house once felt. Even though we love staying here ourselves it's easier to let our guests comments speak for it.

The cape cod portion of the home is the oldest section. This style with its sturdy post and beam construction was very popular with the early settlers. During a more recent renovation just two decades ago in which I added the dormer windows I found that the roof is actually put together with wooden pegs instead of nails. I also found fragments of newspapers used for insulation prior to the civil war. A date on one of the fragments was Thursday, March 21, 1839. The year 1765 is carved into one of the...

About the neighbourhood
The peninsula is dotted with villages. In the area there are shops, stores, businesses, eateries, piers and pounds to buy your lobsters. You'll be hard pressed to find lobsters cheaper anywhere else.
Getting around
It's just about a mile and a half walk to the center of Winter Harbor. And it is a great hike or bike ride but then again why walk? There is a free shuttle bus that tours the area in the summer and it travels by the house every half hour or so. So just stand out at the road and wave. They will be glad to pick you and your bikes up.
