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!

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation! The setting was beautiful, peacefully quiet on the water, but within minutes from Acadia National Park and the center of town (Bar Harbor). A first floor bedroom and bath were great for Grandma, and the kitchen was suplied with all the utensils of home. The picture window in the front gave us a view of the sunrise and sunset, the tidal waters of Frenchman's Bay and the deer and birds that frequented the front path to the beach. We routinely took a dip in the pool every afternoon and dined on the spacious deck.The master suite was huge and inviting. We plan on returning for another glorious week the next time we are in this area and this house is the place to stay.

The Sea Heather is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Sea Heather. There will definitely be a third and a fourth and so on. The house is even better in actuality than the on-line photos depict. We felt so "at home" in this very clean, comfy, and well stocked cottage. It is much more than a "cottage". We loved eating on the deck and enjoying the scenery. The sunsets are priceless. We kayaked right from the property and enjoyed the awesome pool every day after hiking in The Park. Chelcey has thought of everything a house guest needs to be comfortable.

Looking forward to our next visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully comfortable home for our family vacation. Very quiet and serene, yet close to everything in the area. I would definitely stay again on our next family visit to Bar Harbor.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Acadia a number of times and this by far was the best stay we have had. The location is close to everything but gives you a sense of quiet and calm. The house is beautiful, pool was terrific and you wake up to hearing the waves on the beach. We would stay there again !
