We live in Bar Harbor year round with our 3 children, dog and 2 cats. Tony is the owner of a computer software company; Chelcey is the manager of Queen Anne's Cottages and is a professional florist. We feel lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and are happy to share it with others!

Chelcey Dunham purchased this house in 2000

This property is all of the above: woodsy/quiet/private, close to town (10 minute drive), super close to Acadia National Park (5 minute drive), and has amazing views of East Bay!

We can spot on any given day: Bald Eagles, Deer, Porposes, Hummingbirds, Seals, and a variety of other birds and wildlife.

Acadia Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Our family of eight, including two little ones and a set of grandparents, could not have been more comfortable in this beautiful home located right on the water. It quickly became our home away from home! We made full use of the gorgeous pool (the pictures do not do it justice!), the bonfire pit and walking on the beach at sunset. We also enjoyed several meals on the outdoor deck overlooking the water. For us, the location was perfect. Located right off of the main road as you enter MDI, the Sea Heather was about 10 minutes to Bar Harbor and even less to the entrance of Acadia. And lucky for our family, it was practically across the road from Pirate's Cove Miniature Golf and ice cream (a family tradition!). It is also minutes away from Sweet Pea's Café - not to miss for their brick oven pizza! The owners were very easy to work with from start to finish and were happy to answer questions about the area, etc. It was so hard to leave! Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that this family had such a great time. Sea Heather has hosted many, many family reunions and vacations, and is home to some very happy memories!

Bar Harbor Disappointment

  • 2 of 5
This home while seemingly ideally located, is not. It's isolated and too far from Bar Harbor. The amenities in the home are sub par. Tiny televisions, limited channel selections, plastic dishes, glasses & cups, an underpowered ancient microwave oven. Shore front is not very attractive. Too many large trees obscure view. With all of the beds, it's really set up to be a party house or for a lot of people.

Owner's Response: We are sorry for this guest's disappointment. Though we do not have a lot of vrbo reviews yet, we have loads of happy guests who've written about their fabulous time at Sea Heather, and many many returning guests from year to year. We believe his disappointment around what was supposed to be a larger family gathering which turned out to be just the gentleman and is wife is mis-projected at our property. The images and descriptions on our website and the vrbo listing accurately depict Sea Heather, and yes, it is set up to accommodate a lot of people (which is why he chose it in the first place!) Even though it was just the two of them, it's unfortunate that these guests couldn't have enjoyed the space as many other couples have. Televisions are not the focus here (though they are not "tiny") and while we do have high quality, un-breakable dishes (due to the large number of families that we accommodate) our cookware and knives are way above the quality you typically find in a rental. Though I have never had a complaint about the microwave, I'll definitely look into it! This guest and his wife were clearly unhappy with their vacation timing and it's unfortunate that they felt the need to write an unfair review. They did not take the time to read any of the information that was sent to them (or included in the information book located in the cottage) about the property, and needed a lot of hand holding throughout their stay. They probably would have been better served at a resort or an in-town hotel vs a vrbo weekly rental home.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here late in the season [Oct 2013] and absolutely loved it. The property ~10 mins drive to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The house is very well furnished, clean, and spacious. We were 4 adults and so were very very comfortable. The house is also very well stocked with everything you would need from utensils to board games and even a piano.
Its not super modern, but everything was in great functional order and led to the charm of the place.
Super easy Check-in, check-out and quick responses on any requests - Chelcey was awesome. Planning to return this year!

50th anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the property and having the three places was very comfortable. There was everything in the houses and we were impressed by the lovely linens provided and the extensive array of cookware etc. in the kitchen. The children (ours and the grandchildren) loved the proximity to the beach and they found "treasures" there each day. They saw seals etc. in the water and found star fish on the beach. The views are breathtaking from the houses. Chelcey was very friendly and hospitable to all of us. Forgot to mention the gorgeous pool that was enjoyed by all. Great time and we will return.
