About Amber Howard

SeaStone Cottage was purchased in the spring of 2013 by Amber Howard, a local island resident. As the daughter of a stone mason, Amber decided to pay homage to her heritage and name this property after the stone cairns that guide hikers through Acadia National Park. With SeaStone Amber hopes to share her love of adventure and travel, all on the island she first experienced as a little girl, and continues to rediscover as she moves forward in this new endeavor.

Amber Howard purchased this house in 2013

Why Amber Howard chose Salisbury Cove

This summer Mount Desert Island was selected as the 25th best island in the world by Travel & Leisure. Sand Beach was featured as the Destination of the Day by The Huffington Post. Acadia National Park was rated as the 2nd best for biking in the country. And Bar Harbor's Town Square was honored as one of the most beautiful by Travel & Leisure.

This island is known as 'Eden,' and I hope that while you visit with us you are able to Live, Travel, Adventure, and experience this amazing place and come to love it as I have.

What makes this house unique

SeaStone Cottage is in the ideal location for those looking for a complete vacation experience on Mount Desert Island. Spend your morning swimming in Echo Lake, or jumping off the secluded cliffs into Long Pond. Enjoy the view of Somes Sound from the top of Acadia Mountain. Hike the Beehive in the afternoon, or if you're daring take a chilly dip at Sand Beach. End your evening in Bar Harbor enjoying dinner or watching the sun set from the top of Cadillac Mountain. Don't forget to end the night with some ice cream while you enjoy live music in the Village Green, or a cocktail at any of the local watering holes. Wherever you go, you are always just minutes away from SeaStone!

Great Location, Clean and wonderful Service

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location, space very good for four adults. There is no dining room table, sitting is only for two at a counter top. Neat and clean and excellent service. One shower has steps that can be slippery and dangerous for someone who is not agile. Caution for older more physically challenged persons. Good value for money. No dishwasher or washer and dryer. Recommend but need to know these limitations.

Nice House

  • 3 of 5
The house was nice. Things to know the house is actually in a compound of four houses so depending on what the other people are like it could impact the stay. We had no issues with that. The picture taken is from where one of the houses is now. The parking!! The ad states 2 spaces well, my daughter lives in Ellsworth so she spend a lot of time with us which is what the purpose of the trip was. Well we had a woman pound on our door and simply state "you need to move your car we have a lot of people showing up" Then she walked away. She did not introduce herself so at first we thought she was with the people checking into one of the other houses. Well we figured out later that she was the one cleaning the houses. So she did not tell us where our other parking spot was or give us any guidance what so ever, or say HI I'm with the rental company or anything. So if you are staying in this house you better only have one car and disregard the 2 parking spots in the ad. Oh and by the way only two cars total showed up that day which left 2 additional parking spots, but we were to move ours to God knows where.

Owner's Response: Hi Craig. I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience! We do have neighboring houses that are also vacation rentals in the summertime. However, they are not owned or managed by us. I wish you had contacted me after your experience with the neighbors cleaning staff so that we could have resolved the issue during your stay. Our property has 3 parking spots marked with lines and the #10 for our house number, although one is reserved for the downstairs tenants car. The other properties also have marked spots and we do try to respect everyone's parking spots. It can be frustrating when guests arrive to their rental home only to find their designated parking spots have been occupied. It sounds like the neighbors cleaner was trying to make sure their guests spots were available, but it sounds like she mishandled the situation with you. Thank you for your review. Your feedback suggests we need to make our parking situation more clear for the enjoyment of all our guests on Gemstone Way. I will speak with the neighbors, we will re-mark the parking spots, and I will add a map to our Welcome Pack at SeaStone that will clarify where our guests may park.

Fun Stay

  • 4 of 5
Our second visit to this home was as od as the first. We felt like we were at home during our stay. Great space to call headquarters and access the parks during the day and downtown at night. Looking forward to Memorial Day 2015. The Eagle Lake Loop was a good beginner bike route, mac and cheese at Side Street Cafe and must try dinner at McKays possibly the best burger and appetizers we have had.
