CHARMING COTTAGE FOR A FALL VISIT TO ACADIA

Seal Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable and relaxing streamside three bedroom, two bath home

Looking for a great vacation rental close by to Acadia National Park? You've found it - you can't get any closer to the Park than this charming streamside cottage. In fact, the back of this property abuts the boundary with Acadia National Park and is just a few steps away! Located in the wonderful village of Seal Harbor, the cottage is situated on nearly an acre of beautiful, mature trees and has a gorgeous brook running right through the middle of the property. Sleep to the restful sounds of pretty Stanley Brook tumbling seaward alongside your cottage. The house sleeps up to six people with three bedrooms, two baths, comfortable living room, library, fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and relaxing front porch. This home is ideally situated for all of the exciting outdoor activities that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer. It is a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach and to Jordan Pond, a very short walking distance to the entire system of hiking, biking and riding trails in Acadia National Park, very close to Wildwood Stables and only an eight mile drive to the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stanley Brook Cottage is located in a very idyllic setting, perfect for exploring all the natural wonders of Acadia National Park. This is definitely home away from home. We loved the beaches, mountains, Jordan Pond and Seal Harbor. This place is highly recommended for families. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and perfect vacation in this cozy cottage. Thanks!

Picture perfect week!

  • 5 of 5
My family has been vacationing in Acadia for 15+ years, and this was our first stay at Stanley Brook Cottage. It is, by far, the nicest vacation rental we have stayed at. The location is fantastic; close to Seal Harbor, the carriage trails and Jordan Pond House, yet it's situated on a quiet residential street. The house itself is spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. The owner, Matt, is accommodating and very conscientious. We had 3 generations of our family with us, and we all enjoyed our stay. In short, we highly recommend Stanley Brook Cottage, and hope we're lucky enough to stay here again!

Excellent time

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week vacation in this great cottage! We have been coming to MDI for 10+ yrs with my father-in-law and his wife for years and stayed at many houses. This was the best house we have stayed at for many reasons. Some highlights: Very well equipped& maintained, VERY close to JPH (father-in-law favorite place) & carriage roads, can walk to Seal Harbor Beach & bus stop, QUIET, very clean, nothing was broken, downstairs bed was very comfortable (rare in rentals), great water pressure in bathrooms (also rare in rentals), spacious kitchen, etc. The owner was great (lives close by) and seemed to really care about the house & our stay. We loved the house!! Highly recommend.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Stanley Brook Cottage. There was plenty of room for our family of 6 to spread out. The house was stocked with everything we needed to cook, sleep and play in spectacular Seal Harbor. The location of the house was perfect for our family. The kids were able to ride their bikes to town and the carriage paths. The house is right in the center of things without feeling like you are in center of things. We are very hopeful that we can stay at the cottage again.

First of many Stanley Brook Cottage vacations, we hope

  • 5 of 5
Stanley Brook Cottage is a gem. Bright, roomy and well equipped, the on-line description really doesn't do it justice. Long-time campers at Acadia, we enjoyed having a roof this time. We love to bike and hike, and access to the Carriage Trails is a hundred yards down the road. Jordan Pond House and the Park Loop road are less than a mile by car or bike, and the Seal Harbor Beach and shops are a short walk away. Location is everything, and this can't be beat in our view. The owner's attention to detail and kind concern that all our needs were satisfied rounds out this perfect Acadia vacation spot. We will be back!

Lovely sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful and welcoming place to stay. Very comfortable and neat, exactly as in the photos shown. All the amenities are great - the kitchen is very well stocked with cooking tools and plates which makes it a very easy place to get comfortable cooking up a lobster lunch and dinner. The beds and comforters are super comfortable and I slept so well while staying here. It is on a very quiet street and right up the block is access to carriage roads and hiking trails. A few blocks in the other direction is Seal Harbor town and the beach and harbor itself. It has the advantages of being a super-central location being right next to the harbor and beach and small shops and carriage trails while also being in a tucked away, quiet, peaceful location. I recommend this cottage very highly and would absolutely come here again. Enjoy!
