CHARMING MAINE COTTAGE FOR 4 WITH WATER VIEW AND BEACH ACCESS

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!

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.

QUIET, PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED.

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at Seal Ledges Cottage and wish it had been a month.
The cottage was just perfect for jet lag recovery and just relaxing. Whilst we spent some time exploring Mount Desert Island and the wonderful activities it offers (whale watching, hiking, photography etc. etc.) Seal Ledges was also perfect for reading and baking scones to eat in front of the open fire!
Internet access was much appreciated for keeping in touch with home and numerous thoughtful touches in the cottage made our stay perfect.
It was also lovely to meet the owner who had been delightful to communicate with prior to booking and since.
We loved the recommendations for activities and dining and particularly enjoyed the Burning Tree restaurant - delicious.
The photos and website do not do the property justice, it was better than expected.
The only clarification I would add is that the property itself is not waterfront, it does have access to the shore and the float and whilst the water is visible, it does not directly front the water.

FIRST CLASS ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
This home is truly a gem. Everything you read in the listing description is true and then some! We have rented cottages around the coast of Maine a number of times and this one is at the top of our list. The 'quietside' or western half of Acadia is simply beautiful and quiet, but with easy access to everything else offered in Acadia. We loved canoeing down the road at Seal Pond (saw eagles, loons and great blue herons) and at Eagle Lake where we heard the pergrine falcons chirping in their nests! Ship Harbor Trail, Wonderland Trail and Seawall are just down the road, too. I'm not a mountain hiker so these easy to meander trails were wonderful. We ate at several area restaurants and splurged at RED SKY in Southwest Harbor one everning. It was wonderful. We took the Islander Cruise out of Bass Harbor -- the real deal and very informative.

The host/owner of the property was a delight, supportive and very accessible. We plan to return next year!
