About the property

Minutes to Acadia, peaceful, natural landscape, Sleeps 8, granite fireplace

Seascape is a quaint three season "Maine camp" like cottage set amidst natural landscaping with wonderful views of Somes Sound, the only natural 'Fjard' on the East Coast and beautiful Sargent mountain in Hall Quarry. Hall Quarry is located about halfway between Somesville and Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island, was once home to a thriving granite quarrying industry that provided stone to build such important structures as the National Mint in Philadelphia and the Brooklyn anchorage to the Manhattan Bridge in New York. Hall Quarry supported as many as five quarrying operations from 1870 to 1965. Hall Quarry is a quiet and peaceful village that sits nestled in the hills on Somes Sound, a popular sailing and pleasure boating destination, offering protected deep anchorages and spectacular views all year long.

Relax in the most private setting (no neighbors around you to be seen) while you sip your coffee on the spacious deck and enjoy the great views, watch the deer grazing all around you and soak in the relaxing sounds of the motor boats making their way up the Sound. Seascape has 3 very comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms and an additional sleeping loft and finished with two bathrooms. It will comfortably accommodate a total of 4 Adults and 4 Children. It is delicately appointed with new furnishings. This property provides you with everything you need. The beautiful Granite fireplace is a perfect setting for cooler evenings. On the first floor there is a galley kitchen opening up to the cathedral-beamed dining room/living room open floor plan with floor to ceiling double sliding glass doors to the deck and your beautiful. There is a bedroom on the first level with a queen sized bed, as well as a second bedroom with two twin sized new memory foam-gel infused mattresses. There is also a 1st floor bathroom with a tub and shower combination. Travel up the stairs to the sleeping loft which offers a twin day bed and twin trundle unit. Finally enter the master bedroom which also has a queen sized bed and leads to the en-suite bath with a small shower-stall unit. Perfect for two families traveling together or a family that would like to bring their extended family. There is a washer and dryer on the 1st floor for your convenience. PLEASE NOTE: This is a three season property, "Maine camp" which allows , The TRUE EXPOSED BEAM LOOK. (if you are looking for a "home" with insulated walls, sheet rock and sound proofing, this is not your property, as you will hear your family in the other rooms) Just the way I want my family vacations to be.

We are a few minutes to Acadia National Park's great hiking and biking trails, as well as great swimming at Echo Lake Beach. We are within 8 miles of downtown Bar Harbor and everything that our beautiful Island has to offer, without having to endure the crowds and noise of staying downtown. Take a stroll in front of our cottage, which will lead you to one of our previously worked quarries.

Comfortable, quiet, convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Maine to hike in Acadia and relax for a few days. This cottage gave us the perfect home base during our visit. We enjoyed morning coffee, dinner on the deck overlooking the sound. Kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed. Linens were comfy, as was the mattress. We were 5 minutes from Echo Lake for hiking, with easy access to the quiet harbor towns south and west on the island, yet we were 20 minutes away from bustling Bar Harbor. About 15 minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park. Perfect for the 2 of us.

A beautiful spot close to Southwest Harbor...

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the deck, the peace and quiet of the location....and the walks close by. The cottage is just as advertised...and although the walls are a bit thin, it's well kept and comfortable. Mom's 'bucket list' trip...a great memory!! Tx you Erica!

A Great place to stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two daughters stayed 4 nights at this lovely cabin in the woods. I t was well appointed and tastefully decorated. The beds were very comfortable which is high on our list and the bedding very nice. We were visited by two deer and had a great view of Somes Sound. It also had a nice deck which was a good spot for a morning cup of coffee. We would be happy to stay there if we ever get another chance to visit Maine.
