Seascape is in a perfect location with great views and easy access to all the delights the island has to offer. The WIFI and Direct TV were very well appreciated when other activities were unavailable. The kitchen, grille, washer and dryer and number of beds made it easy to entertain our guests and allowed it to be truly a family affair.

We especially appreciated the pet allowance and the company of our dog you provided. Everything was clean and well organized and made us feel right at home. We highly recommend Seascape to others and look forward to staying there in the future. We especially enjoy hiking and sterling views from mountaintops and the sights and sounds of the sea plus the variety of eateries available such as the Trenton Lobster pound and a good ole sub sandwich at EPi's .

You can't go wrong at Seascape in Hall Quarry!

Beautiful peaceful with all the modern conveniences

No hotel room can compare. Clean equipped and ready for living. Great view from the back porch. We were even graced with a double rainbow one night. Highly recommend Mount Desert Island and this property for a fabulous get away from life.

Relaxing stay in a peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property so very much! The home had plenty of room to relax and amazing views of the sound. We enjoyed waking up with coffee and sitting on the deck listening to the birds. Every day we saw deer around the property! The location is not far at all to Bar Harbor and so easy to get to Southwest Harbor (the town we fell in love with during our stay!).

Thank you for sharing your property with us and we hope to stay there again very soon!

The house was purrfect, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved finding out a new part of MDI and this house is one I would like to return to and would wholeheartedly recommend. Keep in mind the walls are thin, but that was not a big deal for us :)

Owner's Response: And we loved having you! Yes this is a seasonal cottage with a natural interior look, therefore no insulation like your average home to muffle sound. Thank you so much for your review and being great guests.

Rustic yet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is rustic enough to feel like a Maine vacation, yet has all the updates and amenities you will need. The wooded setting is lovely and peaceful, and the view of Somes Sound from the deck is gorgeous, especially in the morning when the sun sparkles on the water. The owners have added many very thoughtful touches to this home (such as plenty of nice hangers in the closets).The reservation and check-in process were very easy and efficient, and we loved not having to keep up with a key. The location is perfect for exploring Acadia during the day and going into Bar Harbor at night.
