Why Thomas Newhall chose Seal Harbor

This home has been enjoyed by three generations as a family gathering spot for 42 years. It has also hosted many high school and college reunions as well. The proximity to Acadia National Park and Seal Harbor beach make this location are one of the best on the island. The views from this house encompass Schoodic Point, Baker's Island, Little Cranberry Island, Great Cranberry Island and Bunker's ledge. The huge outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean is a wonderful entertaining spot as well as a great place to eat outside while taking in the view.

What makes this house unique

This big summer cottage is the ideal vacation spot for a family reunion or a multiple family vacation. With 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, family and friends can spread out and then gather together in the large dining room or family room. For active vacationers, people can walk, ride, or drive into Acadia National Park which is just a mile away. Seal Harbor has access to fresh water lake swimming (Long Pond) and a nice sand beach at the head of harbor. The house has a mooring for rent for those that would like bring or rent a boat. Also access to a motorboat, sailboat, or canoe is negotiable.

Great Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This lovely house afforded our family a great opportunity to all be together for meals and socializing. There were 17 of us…adults and grown children. During the day family members went off hiking or touring but we would get together for dinners in the huge dinning room. The house is in a very convenient location… minutes from the Park entrance at Seal Harbor and no more than 10 minutes to Jordan Pond House. The back terrace is large and has a million dollar view.

Wonderful Family Reunion Home

  • 5 of 5
Ilfracombe was a wonderful home base for our extended family reunion. We had a group of 11 ranging in age from 4 months to 86 years. Ilfracombe provided ambiance will all necessary conveniences. The home was a welcome place to return after days of hiking, biking, exploring, and shopping. The large dining room facilitated lingering family dinners. The front porch was popular all day from morning coffee to evening cocktails to night-time star-gazing. The downstairs provided large spaces for the whole group as well as private spaces for smaller groups. There were ample bedroom options.

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for one week, My wife and I, our 4 children and their spouses, and our 6 grandchildren. The home accommodated all of us easily. The dining room is amazing. I was wonderful to be able to have our meals all together! The patio was a great place to hang out. The kids loved the library, reading room, and the toys that were available. The living room fire place came in handy for the few cold evening we had while we were there. Just everything about this home made it the prefect place to bring a large family to spend some quality time together. I highly recommend this for large families!

Seal Harbor 9 BR house

  • 5 of 5
This is a magnificent historic house and location. We had a party of ten and the terrace, larger dining room and kitchen work out great. The house has the best island location, very private and the view of the ocean is breathtaking from the very large terrace. Access to all of the island from this location can't be beat and it is a very short drive into Bar Harbor. Don't miss the path to the ocean a few streets down, its a short walk to the cove and very nice secluded area.

Hilltop Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This property was the ideal vacation spot for my extended family group of 11. The view is spectacular and the house itself divine, It has a roomy kitchen, a huge dining room, a lovely breakfast room, an excellent library, and a wonderful terrace overlooking the ocean and islands. There is enough space for everyone to be together or enjoy a quiet time reading alone. We did not have children in our group, but Ilfracombe is a family-oriented , happy house for all ages. Highly recommended!
