WELCOME TO SEAL COVE, ACADIA NATIONAL PARK AND MOUNT DESERT ISLAND

Seal Cove Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Turn Of The Century Shingle-style Cottage With A Westerly Sunset View.

This spacious turn of the century shingle-style cottage is set with a westerly view overlooking blue hill bay just steps from the water at the head of the cove, with deeded access for kayaking and beachcombing along the inner reaches of seal cove.

The private setting includes lawn and gardens with a backdrop of wood and meadows. Located on the westerly side of mount desert island, the cottage is close to acadia national park. Closeby are some great trails including acadia mountain, seawall, western mountain and access to seal cove pond. From the cottage it is only a few minutes to southwest harbor and twenty-five minutes to bar harbor. We know you will enjoy the quietude and privacy of the western side of the island.

The six-room plan includes four bedrooms and two and one half baths, which can comfortably accommodate six. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a private bath and two more

Bedrooms on the second floor. The fully outfitted country kitchen, is generously supplied with dishes, silverware, cookware, etc. The spacious living/dining room features large picture windows

With water views and a full view woodstove for warmth and atmosphere on cool maine evenings. The easterly deck and westerly porch provide the perfect spots for enjoying the morning sunshine and afternoon breezes. From the front porch are extraordinary views of the cove and magnificent sunsets over blue hill bay. For those who need to remain in contact with the outside world there is cable television and high speed internet access.

If your idea of a visit to the maine coast includes activities like hiking, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, tide pool and beach combing, swimming, birdwatching or soaking up the sun sitting in a comfy chair reading your favorite novel, you are sure to find plenty to enjoy right here in Seal Cove.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time at the cottage and on MDI. We especially enjoyed our neighbors - the Osprey nest - next to the house! We crabbed, ate wild berries and thoroughly enjoyed the park and all the small harbor towns. We left no stone unturned. Thanks for everything!

We LOVE this house!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 adults spent the first week in August at this charming, comfortable, peaceful, beautiful and quintessential Maine seacoast house. The attention given to detail in this home is unbelievable.
Ginger was fantastic in providing a wealth of information and very quick responses to my email questions.
The quiet side of MDI is just that; the perfect getaway. We bought pies at the Somesville church pie sale (every Wed at noon but get there early, blueberry sells out first), swam at Echo Lake, went into Bar Harbor a couple of times, hiked at Schoodic Mountain away from the crowds at the more popular hiking spots, ate lobster of course, kayaked off the shore, watched the lobster boats in the cove from the evening porch (loved the porches), and did not want to leave. This is a house we will absolutely return to.
As my husband said to me on our way home, 'Honey, you did well picking our Maine house this year. Can we stay forever?'

Charming and peaceful!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seal Cove Cottage. The house is beautiful, cozy and charming. The house is probably 100 years old and is decorated accordingly, however it is very child friendly. My kids were able to run around in the house and outside without me worrying too much about their safety. The screened in back porch is the best part of the house! We loved sitting out there and looking out onto the bay. So beautiful and tranquil. We rented a canoe for the week and it was great. We took it out everyday on the bay and even saw seals. So cute to do only steps away from the house. It was fun for the kids during low tide to go down and treasure hunt for shells, crabs, etc. The house is so quiet especially at night and everyone slept great. The owner Ginger was so great leading up to our stay and gave awesome suggestions about where to eat, swim, hike. You can tell how much she loves her cottage and wants others to love it too. Loved our stay and want to go back soon!!

Seal Cove Charmer

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from having spent a week at this charming cottage. It offers all the necessary amenities (and then some) as well as privacy, ocean access, and gorgeous sunsets. Our grandchildren enjoyed exploring the beach and had plenty of outside area to play. There is also a convenient boat launch nearby. Many thanks again to the owners for sharing their home and a wonderful vacation had by all!
