Seal Cove Cabins are located in the heart of the most relaxing place on earth, the 'Quiet Side' of Mount Desert Island. Nestled just off the main Road (Route 102) near Hodgdon Pond, where you will have access to the Pond to enjoy a peaceful day out in the canoe or kayak which is provided, yet close enough to all the amenities of Mount Desert Island. Walk to Pretty Marsh Picnic Area to watch the sunset. Bike through Acadia National Park. We are about 3m. Long Pond, 5m. Southwest Harbor, 6m. Somesville,12m. Bar Harbor. We have a cozy 2 bedroom cabin with a loft that sleeps 7. The cabin is furnished with all that you would ever need including: screened in porch with table, chairs, washer & dryer, linens, towels, dishes, and pots & pans. Also we provide: books, games, videos, TV & VCR, phones, electric heat.
The cabin, Maple Leaf, has a double bed in the Loft/w (roll-away bed) Also a gas fireplace! (cozy for the Fall weather!)
Did a family trip to Maine and really enjoyed our stay over the summer months. Cabin was in the woods located next to another cabin but was private. It was nice and also within walking distance of a pond that I was able to canoe around on with my kids. It is located on the quite side of Mount Desert Island, its an easy drive everywhere on the island including Bar Harbor and Acadia National Forest in no more then 15 minutes. We had no problems whatsoever and would stay here again if we return to Maine someday.
The scenic tour to do by car: First stop: Bernard -one of the most scenic fishing villages, with it's many Lobster boats and Lobster traps along the wharf. Check out Thurston's Lobster Pound for a bite to eat -The view is spectacular. After lunch: Head to Bass Harbor which is the opposite side of Bernard and also very picturesque, Here you can catch the Swans Island Ferry. Seafood Ketch is a great place for breakfast or dinner. Also 'Mainely Delight' is one of my favorite places, known for it's 'Dough Boys' and beautiful Sunsets. From there head up the hill to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse, one of the most photographed lighthouses in all of New England. As you leave the lighthouse, travel around to Seawall Beach, a great place for a picnic, walk along the beautiful coastline, feed the seagulls, or just sit and enjoy life! From there you will enter into Southwest Harbor, where you will find gift shops, coffee shops, book store & the ice cream shop next to the park.
