About Jennifer Wales
Adam and Jen have a deep love and understanding of the natural beauty surrounding the Acadia/Mount Desert Island area. Jen grew up summers on Long Pond and Adam on a 110-acre farm in Western Maine adjoining the Appalachian Trail. They met here in Bar Harbor working as sea kayak guides in the summer of 1993. Over the years, they have hiked, biked, paddled, and sailed every conceivable route on and around Mount Desert. Adam completed his goal of hiking every trail on the Island in the summer of 1994 and Jen authored The Sea Kayaker's Guide to Mount Desert Island published by Down East Books in 1997. Together they paddled the Maine Island Trail, a 175-mile 28-day kayaking trip from Portland to Machias, up the entire Maine coastline. In the summer of 2000, Jen and Adam started Mountain Sea Properties with a single house, Eagle Cliff, where they were married that same summer. The owner had approached them expressing her frustration renting the home through larger rental operations on the island. She complained that her house was one of hundreds represented so the service she received was minimal. She also stated that those who rented the house were not as well informed as they could be. The tenants were also one of hundreds and the service they received was minimal. Adam and Jen offered to represent the house committing to providing top quality service to both owners and tenants by representing a limited number of houses and providing personalized vacation services. Since then, Mountain Sea Properties has grown along with the Wales family. As year-round members of the Island’s community, Adam and Jen are dedicated to the vitality of the people of Mount Desert Island. Thus, each year they donate a portion of their proceeds to local organizations devoted to sustaining the beauty and well-being of the Mount Desert Island area.

Motorcycle trip to Bar Harbor
We enjoyed our stay very much. We were traveling on motorcycles so the convenience to stores , restaurants and Bar Harbor Village was perfect so we were able to walk everywhere. Lovely home, with all the amenities we needed.
Honey Bee Bar Harbor
Cute New England home with sun porch. We loved this house from the beautiful hardwood floors, to the large kitchen, and the comfortable beds. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants. You could not ask for more.
Nice quiet location in the heart of Bar Harbor
Nice property very close to the activities of downtown Bar Harbor. Especially appreciated the 2 car off street parking.
Family vacation in Bar Harbor
Our family stayed in this house for a week. We found the house very accommodating and it was in a great central location.
Last minute booking but worked well for exploring area. Lovely homely feel.
A+ for Honeybee
We loved our stay at Honeybee. The location was worth its weight in gold. We only used the car to drive into Acadia. We were able to easily walk to the water, restaurants, and shops. The house was so cute and very clean. We hope to return!
