Gorgeous Harbor Views On The Wharf! - The Boathouse At Corea Harbor!

Located in: Corea
This is a wonderfully unique property in the ultra quaint fishing village of Corea, Maine.

Our family purchased The Boathouse in 1970. The parcel included a detached unit across the street which can be made available for extra guests upon request. Visit our listing for The Porchside Harbor House at Corea Harbor here on VRBO or on Homeaway - search property # 3774672! Make it a compound! The Boathouse is a weather-grey shingled, rustic two-story structure that sits squarely on a fishing wharf in the heart of the village of Corea. It was renovated in 1977 into its current form by our Dad, Victor Christ-Janer, who was an internationally recognized architect with a love for the simple life.

The Boathouse has 180 degree views of the harbor from the sun drenched upstairs kitchen and dining area. Read a book or watch the boats come and go from the harbor on the gated outdoor wharf deck. Breezes abound as you listen to the tide come in underneath your feet!

You can easily walk, jog or bike your way around the harbor. Bring a camera or a sketchbook - there is a photo-op every ten steps! Explore off the beaten path side roads, rock walking, discover the sunny beach which gives way to the sandbar that will take you to an island exploration at low tide, pick wild blueberries or buy a bucket of lobster at boat-side prices from the Corea Co-op.

People come to Corea (once called Indian Harbor) for the slow pace yet discover that restaurants, snack bars, grocery shopping, wi-fi coffee bar and pastry shop, laundromat, 5 & 10 are all a scenic 10-minute drive away. On the way snap a shot of the giant Beach Cliff (Stinsons) fisherman standing at the entry to the old sardine factory. Nearby Winter Harbor is home to the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. Drive or bike the 8-mile loop road. Hike one of several trails to the top of Schoodic Point.

Feed the gulls; watch the waves crash on the rocky coast with Mt. Desert Island in the background.

For a longer excursion, you are 30 minutes from Ellsworth for large shopping centers, big box stores, pharmacies, more great food. Corea is about 50-60 minute ride over to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. If the little ones need distraction, the road from Ellsworth towards Bar Harbor is your answer. Mini-golf, water park, scenic airplane rides, a small zoo to name a few will fit the bill. And, you do have to do the tourist thing at least one day! Shop, eat, whale watch, hike, climb, swim. It’s all there!

The Boathouse on the Wharf offers the vacationer casual, well appointed lodging at budget prices, with easy access to a whole lot of vacation. Turn off the cell phone, save the laptop for games and movies and make The Boathouse on the Wharf your life-unplugged vacation destination this summer!
