About Grant Castle

Owners on property in main house on the 3 acre estate. We live here about half of the year. Our son is grown and on his own, so it is very quiet here.

Grant Castle purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Grant Castle chose Southwest Harbor

Our family has vacationed and lived in the area for generations, so it was preordained that we would end up somewhere nearby. When we had a chance to buy this place we jumped on it.

What makes this cottage unique

We found this property 17 years ago abandoned because of the time and expense it takes to keep an oceanfront property up to date. It took us 15 years to get it right, but now it is a truly first class environment.

Wonderful cottage, Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Seawall cottage close to Southwest Harbor. The cottage was delightful, comfortable and a pleasure to call home for a week. The view was amazing and a wonder to see first thing each morning. The deer were welcome visitors a few times during our stay! The cottage was well appointed and the bathroom was beyond amazing. We have visited the Acadia National Park area a few times and this was the best place we ever stayed and was very reasonably priced. The town of Southwest Harbor had wonderful restaurants and services. Whereas it was a little difficult to get in and out of the town due to road construction, the peacefulness and quietness of this part of the island was well worth the minor inconvenience. When we travel back to the area, my husband and I will definitely stay at this cottage if available. I only wish Grant had a larger property for rent here so we could bring the whole family!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the place. The Fall is a beautiful time of year if the weather cooperates and it's a perfect time to explore all day and build a fire and keep cozy at night. The cottage seems to be just what a couple needs for a week. Sorry we can't accomodate more people. Past visitors with families have rented a second place nearby and loved being alone sometimes and together at other times. Come back next year!

We had a great time. The cottage was very well furnished and well maintained. It was a short drive to town so we did not have to use public transportation. Had a good kitchen so we could prepare as many meals as we wanted, but close to dining places too. Had a wood stove for cool evenings and mornings. Furniture very comfortable. Great owners.

An AMAZING week at this beautiful Seawall cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Acadia and we could not imagine nicer accommodations in such a wonderful location. Grant and Becky went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect when we got there and made sure our expectations were exceeded during our stay. The views from the beach and the deck were stunning. The grounds were wonderfully maintained and the garden was a treat to explore. The cottage was cozy, beautifully decorated, and well equipped (the wood stove came in handy during the cool fall evenings). This is the perfect location for easy access to all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. It is no surprise that this is one of the highest rated rentals on MDI. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip to Acadia and the Seawall Cottage.

Wonderful!

We loved our time at Seawall and hated to have to leave! The cottage was exactly as described and the owner's were wonderful hosts! She had fresh cut flowers waiting for us in two rooms, and gave us so many great books to help us know where to hike, bike and kayak during our visit. We have never had a more perfect vacation and can't wait to be able to come back.

Quintessential New England with breathtaking views steps from the ocean -- superbly welcoming owner!

My husband and I have been coming to Acadia National Park every year for the past three years. We love the variety of activities and beauty that this part of Maine offers; so much in fact, that we decided to have our wedding at the Seawall. When planning our wedding trip we were delighted to find the cottage so close to the Seawall and thought the pictures were charming. We were beyond impressed when we arrived. The pictures did not do this charming little place justice. The home is well decorated, incredibly organized, and very clean. We had everything we needed in the home along with a beautifully manicured lawn and an amazing ocean view. Our trip and our stay in the cottage was magical and we will absolutely be back! The wonderful relationship the owners offered us matched the high quality atmosphere of the cottage perfectly.

This will be our third year at Sewall Cottage. We have made Maine our annual destination for 20 + years, and have stayed at a variety of motels, inns, cottages, cabins that you can think of. Sewall Cottage is by far the best place we have stayed. We no longer consider ourselves tourists and welcome the quite peaceful atmosphere that Sewall Cottage provides. The accommodations are awesome and so up to date, it is like being at home, except for the spectacular view and all the benefits of being in Maine. There is a heater and also a wood stove so you have an option for whichever heat you prefer when the evenings get chilly. We especially like raiding the garden which has lots of fresh vegetables. From our point of view, there is no place better in Maine.
