Quiet, peaceful and beautifully appointed.

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.
