Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5
After a week here we are truly sad to be leaving this very well appointed home on the beach. Close to everything, including the lobster pounds. Beach a few steps from the back door, secluded area yet easy access to Acadia-2 minutes away, and downtown Bar Harbor. Mike the owner was very easy to work with and made sure our stay was memorable. I highly recommend this getaway, in fact, we are considering an additional stay next year. Great value. Lots of room for our family. We found everything we needed for a great vacation. Thanks Mike!

That view and that beach

  • 5 of 5
It's actually hard to believe you are sitting on your own private expanse of rocky seawall beach between Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor among the million dollar estates. But you really are. And twice a day it's transformed by tides to what feels like two very different and equally exciting shores. In between you can gaze uninterrupted to Bear Island and Sutton Island beyond. Mornings you're pleasantly stirred by lobster boats and days can be filled by watching the many types of boats go by.

The property is just as described, but the view and setting is even more impressive than shown. The location is ideally away from the noise and crowds of Bar Harbor but a stones throw from the lovely sand beach in Seal Harbor. Seemed like everything on the island was 20 minutes away from the property. Found it to be a great retreat from the more touristy parts of MDI but convenient to all the necessities of a week away.

There are a few minor things to know when you consider this property, though. The house is 50 or so feet from Route 3 which means you hear every passing car / truck. This isn't a terrible distraction, but you do notice it.

There is a fold-away couch in the den (which has a full bath next to it) if you would like 3 truly private bedrooms. The loft is above the master and does not have it's own bath like the other bedrooms. While occupants of the loft and master can't see each other because of a high railing, you can certainly hear everything. Perhaps this arrangement is perfect for members of the same family (kids upstairs and parents down)?

And did I mention the private beach and the view...
