About the property

New 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom ocean front cabin with mountain views

For previous visitors to our website and first time visitors alike, Seaweed Cottage has been rebuilt from the ground up and is ready for occupancy! Seaweed is located on Somes Sound, the only natural fjord on the east coast of the United States. Enjoy a sunrise greeting you as it rises over Parkman and Sargent Mountain. Sit on the deck and watch the boating activity, observe the sea life, and relax with the cool ocean breezes. This cottage is located in a secluded cove that affords you a nice and quiet atmosphere after a day in Acadia National Park.

The “New” Seaweed Cottage is equipped with three bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, and laundry! Amenities also include all modern appliances, television, spacious decks, dock, kayaks, outdoor fire pit, and all the relaxation and panoramic views one can stand!

About Mimi Mooers

Rick, Mimi, Colin and Riley Mooers and also Mimi's mom, Sharon Musetti are the owners of these cabins. Mimi and Sharon have had several years experience running and cleaning cottages. Mimi's husband, Rick, and children, Riley and Colin, have come into the business in recent years but have stepped up and have allowed the rentals to run as family owned and operated.

Mimi Mooers purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mimi Mooers chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

You can sit on the porch and watch seals, porpoises, and loons play in the water in front of the cottage. You are so close to the water, when sitting inside in the living room, you get the feeling you are on a boat, because at high tide you don't see land, and water surrounds you.

What makes this cottage unique

From the sun coming over the mountains to the spectacular views of Somes Sound, a photo does not give the beauty of the surroundings that Seaweed has to offer.

New Oceanfront Cottage on Somes Sound
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

The perfect place to recharge and be inspired.

  • 5 of 5

I've spent quite a bit of time in Maine through the years and Hall Quarry stands out as an extraordinary place! It is low-key and quiet and incredibly beautiful. And, Seaweed specifically is a wonderful spot that would be hard to beat on MDI. The design of the cottage provides panoramic views of Somes Sound with water access at your doorstep— literally. The cottage is comfortable and immediately welcoming, offering all of the amenities you’d want for a home-away-from-home including a wonderful outdoor fire pit on the water’s edge! Morning, afternoon and night the changing light and skyscape outside these windows provide endless inspiration and interest. Hall Quarry is close to lakes, trails and restaurants and just short drives to Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. I stayed here for two weeks this year and look forward to returning in 2016 for three weeks! It is a perfect place to recharge, relax and do some creative work as well.

Gorgeous Cottage - Gorgeous Scenery - So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maine. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The cottage is beautifully furnished. A home away from home. The scenery is breath taking. This is a terrific place to come to get away from the hustle and bustle. Acadia Nat'l Park and Bar Harbor are less than 30 minutes away. Our three teenagers loved it too. They kayaked, climbed on the rocks, hiked, and just plain enjoyed all the "nature". We can't wait to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks Charlene. I look forward to seeing your Holiday greeting card with the kids on the mooring. Next year we'll have to get creative and think of something new for them to try.
