A seaside retreat in Seal Cove

Travelers are drawn to the quiet respite of Maine's Seal Cove, a little bayside village on the western shores of Mount Desert Island where lobster boats frequently gather. Acadia National Park is right next door, so there are endless outdoor activities just a quick drive or bike ride away. This less-visited part of the popular island retains a peaceful feeling and boasts incredible sunset views over the little islets that dot the surrounding waters. Once you've selected your ideal Seal Cove vacation rental, it's off for boating adventures in search of local lighthouses, and mountain hikes leading breathtaking coastal vistas.

Coast to coast bike excursions from Seal Cove

Though it might be hard to tear yourself away from the picturesque harbor views, incredible hiking and cycling opportunities await just steps away. Seal Cove Road, on the western outskirts of Acadia, is an unpaved path open to cars during the summer, but its lack of traffic makes it a great place for a walk or bike ride. The whole road, waterfront to waterfront, will lead you to the village of Southwest Harbor after about 4 miles. There, a charming little shopping district will fuel you up with a cup of coffee or an ice-cream cone for the trek back.

Vintage attractions in Seal Cove

While you might be visiting Mount Desert Island primarily for the active outdoor scene and incredible waterfront views, history buffs can step back in time at the Seal Cove Auto Museum. Here, you can check out a collection of more than 50 classic vehicles, bikes and motorcycles dating from the 1890s to 1920s, as well as a few other vintage artifacts on display. The museum uses the autos to tell stories about innovation and imagination in the eras represented, through interactive exhibits, and hosts special events and kid-friendly activities, too.

Quiet summers in Seal Cove

Summer days in Seal Cove are best spent shoreside, munching on lobster rolls at the grassy picnic spot that overlooks the water. June through August is the best time to travel here, since these months see the lowest rain levels and warmest temperatures, averaging in the upper 70s. If you visit then, look for a Seal Cove vacation rental on the water to enjoy the ocean breezes. Even though summer is a busy time in the national park, this part of the island is considered the quiet side, so you can easily avoid the crowds while still enjoying the perks.

Birding adventures in Seal Cove

If you've come to Seal Cove to enjoy the great outdoors, you'll want to spend some time exploring the wildlife wonderland at Acadia National Park. The huge island preserve is home to all kinds of creatures, from moose and white-tailed deer to Canada geese and tiny sparrows. You won't have to wander too far in to go birding, as Seal Cove Pond on the western side is a short hop from your Seal Cove vacation rental. The shallow water is home to warm-water species like bass and perch, so you can often spy preying osprey and bald eagles here.
