average rating of 4.785714 based on 28 reviews

We felt entirely pampered. Our every need had been anticipated and provided for. A true joy!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are immaculately groomed and beautifully appointed. The house is delightful- spacious with sunlight streaming through huge windows. Our view of the ocean and beyond was spectacular. A quiet walk on the beach offered a serene respite from the day's activities. My family greatly enjoyed the sa!t water pool, with a granite diving rock. I would love to return to this luxurious piece of heaven for a future vacation experience.

Absolutely wonderful stay in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay for 4 nights at Sea Heather. Spacious, comfortable, perfectly appointed house. Gorgeous waterfront views. Close to Bar Harbor, Acadia, great restaurants and shopping. Was hard to leave the house to see the sights of MDI. First visit to Maine coast and could not have imagined it being any better. Owner, Chelcey was gracious,accessible and easy to deal with . The only (small thing) that would have made it better would have been access to a kayak to enjoy the water in the back and perhaps some bikes to enjoy the carriage trails but I understand the difficult logistics with making these available at the house. Can't wait to re-book for next year.

We stayed here for the Memorial day weekend and loved it! We felt at home and are looking forward to returning in the future. This place simply became the go-to place for our future visits of the park.

Wonderful house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Chelcey's house was very well equipped and comfortable. We loved the location, rocky beach (just a stairway away) -and the amazing views. Had a minor problem and Chelcey was there the next day to fix it. It was mid- Sept, but the children even ventured into the beautiful pool. It is just a short drive to Bar Harbor shops and restaurants and a large Hannafords. Would be very happy to stay there again and again!
