Grindstone Point is at the southern tip of Grindstone Neck in Winter Harbor, Maine. Follow Grindstone Avenue to arrive at this viewing spot. It provides spectacular views of several islands including the mountains of Mount Desert Island. The Winter Harbor Light on Mark Island is directly to the south. Acadia National Park at Schoodic Peninsula is to the southeast.
Originally part of the town of Gouldsboro, the fishing village of Winter Harbor separated and became incorporated in 1895. The year 2010 census shows the population at 516, a considerable drop from the year 2000 census which placed its year-round population at 988. The cause is largely due to a naval base closure.
