Overview

Seal Cove Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom (1 King- 1 twin bedroom), 1 full bath, sleeps 4

Located on Mount Desert Island, minutes away from Acadia National Park, Seal Ledges has the perfect combination of the old and the new. Built in the early 1900s, it retains the charm of a typical Maine cottage, with wood paneling throughout, four working fireplaces, large screened porch and deck with water views. Updated in 2004, it offers wireless Internet, a modern kitchen, DVD and VCR, digital cable, and unlimited domestic phone service.

The property comprises 4 acres of open field (for croquet and soccer), woods (for gathering wildflowers), gardens (for cutting your own bouquets), rocky beach (for tide-pooling), float (for brisk ocean swimming and kayaking) and dock (for watching eagles and osprey, or enjoying sunset cocktails).

Seal Ledges accommodates 4 guests, in one king and one twin bedroom.

We are now accepting reservations for summer 2014.

We supply all linens, firewood, paper and soap products, books, puzzles and games. You simply bring your own food, clothes, bikes and kayaks. Sunsets included, no extra charge!

Beautiful Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was really amazing! We like to explore, hike, cycle, and kayak as a family. This cottage was a fantastic location for all of the above. We also like to cook, and the cottage was the first place we have ever rented that I did not miss the kitchen equipment we have at home. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. Great spot for a spectacular time in Maine and Acadia National Park.

Seal Ledges Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been returning to Seal Ledges Cottages for many years. It's a wonderful spot on the "Quiet Side" of Mt. Desert Island near Southwest Harbor. The cottage is charming (we love the four fireplaces !) and beautifully maintained. It is in a secluded area but easily accessible to all the attractions of MDI and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoy our stays there.

Perfect vacation cottage for families

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was charming, nicely furnished and decorated, complete with comfy rockers on the porch looking out over the water. The owners had thought of everything you might need and provided it, and the owners were very friendly and full of suggestions for things to do. It was ideal for families because there were so many things to do right on the grounds: tidepooling on the beach; swimming at the dock; we didn't have a kayak, but the cove looked perfect for it; playing lawn games (provided) on the large lawn, watching the osprey who nested nearby, exploring the woods, and making s'mores in the fireplace on the outdoor screened porch (one of several fireplaces in the cottage). The wifi worked perfectly for those who might need it for work.

A gracious home in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5
Seal Ledges is a tasteful and beautiful home situated in a private and calm corner of Acadia, offering you everything you need for a memorable, restful and convenient stay. Stunning gardens, a screened porch, fireplaces, a well-equipped kitchen, it was a hard place to leave. Highly recommended!

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at Seal Cove Ledges in July. We both agreed it was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. The cottage was perfect in every way, and we are already planning to return in a couple of years and hopefully be able to spend 2 weeks there.

Magical Maine

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cottage. My husband and I stayed here with our 3 & 5 yr old girls. The cottage was wonderfully clean and organized. The pictures do not do it justice. Comfortable beds and couches and wonderful outdoor space. Awesome collection of cd's, books, games, dvd's and cable to entertain on rainy days (luckily only one for us). Our girls spent mornings/afternoons in the meadow picking wildflowers and exploring the forest and watching the changing tides at the beach. It is quiet with limited neighbors, yet 10 minutes to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor ice cream.
