About Jennifer Wales

About Mountain Sea Properties:

Adam and Jen have a deep love and understanding of the natural beauty surrounding the Acadia/Mount Desert Island area. Jen grew up summers on Long Pond and Adam on a 110-acre farm in Western Maine adjoining the Appalachian Trail. They met here in Bar Harbor working as sea kayak guides in the summer of 1993.

Over the years, they have hiked, biked, paddled, and sailed every conceivable route on and around Mount Desert. Adam completed his goal of hiking every trail on the Island in the summer of 1994 and Jen authored The Sea Kayaker's Guide to Mount Desert Island published by Down East Books in 1997. Together they paddled the Maine Island Trail, a 175-mile 28-day kayaking trip from Portland to Machias, up the entire Maine coastline.

In the summer of 2000, Jen and Adam started Mountain Sea Properties with a single house, Eagle Cliff, where they were married that same summer. The owner had approached them expressing her frustration renting the home through larger rental operations on the island. She complained that her house was one of hundreds represented so the service she received was minimal. She also stated that those who rented the house were not as well informed as they could be. The tenants were also one of hundreds and the service they received was minimal.

Adam and Jen offered to represent the house committing to providing top quality service to both owners and tenants by representing a limited number of houses and providing personalized vacation services.

Since then, Mountain Sea Properties has grown along with the Wales family. As year-round members of the Island’s community, Adam and Jen are dedicated to the vitality of the people of Mount Desert Island. Thus, each year they donate a portion of their proceeds to local organizations devoted to sustaining the beauty and well-being of the Mount Desert Island area.

Jennifer Wales purchased this house in 2000

Just Perfect...

  • 5 of 5
This house was really the way to go for our family. We had looked into hotels, but found the idea of a house to ourselves, where our small kids could sleep undisturbed and our dog could come along, to be the better option for us. We were right. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Thankfully there was shampoo and conditioner in each of the three shower/baths because I had forgotten to pack it! There is a hair dryer there too. Thought I'd mention because we didn't see that listed on the description and had packed one just in case. The house was immaculate and cozy. Just what we were looking for. I would absolutely recommend this home rental based on the house and the fantastic communication. It made renting this gem easy.

Owner's Response: K- Our goal is to think of all the inconveniences we experience ourselves when traveling with our family (and pup) and try to eliminate them from your experience renting through Mountain Sea Properties both at our physical properties and through our vacation services that we offer.

Enjoyable stay in nature-filled area

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying in Beechwood which is bright and comfortable. The house is fully equipped with more than plenty of towels, cooking utensils and supplies. Cooking, relaxing, and eating in common spaces was cozy and hassle-free.

Our kids enjoyed the deck and the outdoor furniture, which allowed them to enjoy the beautiful marshlands and forest that surround the house and its wildlife, including hummingbirds and many types of warblers.

I will definite recommend Beechwood to friends coming to Acadia

Owner's Response: Yuanqian,
Aren't the birds just wonderful at Beechwood! And the double french doors do make this home bright just as you've mentioned. Good to hear the kids had such a good time and be sure to mention to your friends that we always offer a discount to referrals. Hope to see you again in the near future.

Unforgettable vacation rental property we ever had

  • 5 of 5
We have been to many vacation rental properties before. But we all screamed when all of our 10 guests arrived. It had everything you would need staying in a roomy and we call a comfortable home. The week went by so quickly and everyone of us from 3 families and 5 kids and 5 grownups had a wonderful time both sightseeing and staying indoors. The kids enjoyed Wifi with computers and ipads tremendously. They even called out bird songs using iPad to attract birds outside on the deck. Each of the kids presented their cooking dish to the dinner table and made a lot of cookies.

The scenes of natural beauties of Acadia at the end of August were gorgeous and breathtaking. We saw the spectacular sun setting twice both from the top of the Cadillac mountain and from the ocean. Yes, we saw whales, one is called Victim and one is called Sword.

We like to thank the property owner and manager for making our vacation so memorable and unforgettable. We appreciate all she has done to make the vacation homes a true home to us vacationers far from home.

Beechwood stay was excellent

  • 5 of 5
Our party of eight adults had a good time at Beechwood and appreciated the manager's availability and responsiveness. Everyone was quite happy with the house, and the parking area was very good. The bedrooms were comfortable, the master bedroom being especially nice in spite of the pocket door separation from the great room having a small gap where the door halves meet. The deck was wonderful. Between the deck and the large amount of glass in the wall, we had excellent views of the meadow. It was wonderful to spend the week with no ground floor views of other houses. The upstairs rooms did have traffic noise from SH 102 when windows were open. The kitchen is well equipped, with ample supplies of cutlery and dishes. Our boats were safe on the back lawn, and our bikes were safe in the garage. I would definitely stay at Beechwood again. Thanks, Jen!

relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Eight of our walking Women Outdoors group shared Beechwood for a VERY enjoyable week, happy to arrive to find air conditioning! The description was accurate, and everything we needed was there - lots of kitchen equipment and plates, plenty of towels, blankets and pillows, even shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. The house is quiet, yet quite easily accessible to all the Acadia attractions. The deck was a popular gathering place mornings and evenings, with its vista of field and wildflowers. We found no shortage of books, games, maps and guidebooks for our week, and Jen visited to make sure we had what we needed. Another true benefit: free phone service! We all enjoyed visiting the Granite Museum just up the road.
I would recommend Beechwood for any family or group.

Great house for spending time on Mount Desert

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our two families. We had 4 young teen agers and 4 adults and enough room for all of us. Great location to be able to experience all that there is to see and do. The house is very well maintained and comfortable. Jen is wonderful to deal with. All the local books/brochures on hikes and history of the area were a welcome addition and well used by us. We loved every moment there.

Car: recommended

Located in the heart of Mount Desert Island, Beechwood is no more than 10 min from all the attractions Acadia National Park has to offer including the secluded hidden treasures on the “quiet side” of Acadia National Park. From Bar Harbor and the breathtaking Park Loop Rd to Bass Harbor and its famous lighthouse, you’ll spend more time exploring the wonders of this lovely island and less time getting there. Within just two miles of the house are three wonderful swimming and boating lakes, several spectacular hiking trails, beautiful Somes Harbor, and just up the road, Beech Hill Farm, the only organic farm stand on the island. The free island-wide shuttle bus can be picked up directly from this home allowing for a car-free vacation.

Golf: Three golf courses located near by including the famous Northeast Harbor Club and Kebo Valley Golf Club. Bar Harbor Club is just off the island.
