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 Hall Quarry

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.

Beautfil, serene, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Hall Quarry, Seaweed for many years and we can't say enough about how beautiful and peaceful it is. Being right on Some Sounds and seeing dolphins come through and other ocean life is just amazing. Having coffee in the morning on the porch of Seaweed is pure joy as is having an evening fire amongst the stars. Mimi and Rick Mooers are wonderful owners of this property and we are so glad we found them. We look forward to returning this year and have chosen to see what the fall time is like at Hall Quarry and the beloved Seaweed. There is so much to do in the area from hiking to walking through Bar Harbor. It is a perfect vacation. Sincerely, Larry and Leona L.

Lovely cabin, extraordinary views, paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in the "new" Seaweed and it's predecessor for many years. Photos can't capture the panoramic views, smell of the salt air and the sounds of the waves breaking on the rocks. We commonly spot seals, small whales, cormorants and loons. We've watched eagles and osprey fly by. It's such a unique cabin as we often feel like we are not on land, but on the water. It's a beautiful, immaculately clean cabin with everything you'll need. It is close to Acadia and all it's beauty. Mimi and her husband Rick are great hosts, and always help to make our stay special. We can hardly wait to return this summer!

My family has been staying in Mimi & Rick's cottages for years, and every single stay has been amazing. Seaweed is incredible. This beautiful, peaceful setting is like no other. There are gorgeous views of Somes Sound and the surrounding mountains that can be enjoyed from the spacious deck, the picnic/patio area, or any window when indoors. The location is perfect, pretty much central to any spot on the island you would like to explore. The brand new cottage is very well equipped with everything you might need (and more!). It is spacious and modernized while maintaining a very cozy feel. It is kid friendly as well. Mimi & Rick are fantastic hosts, and we look forward to seeing them each year.

I highly recommend this cottage! Would not change a thing about it.

Great location, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed with Hall Quarry Rentals each summer since 2013. “Seaweed” is right on the water, we can hop in a cottage kayak and paddle to nearby Acadia trails or launch our boat. The cottage is fully renovated but still a cozy feel. Located on the "quiet side" of Acadia, still close to great restaurants, lakes, and trails - and a short drive to fine dining in Bar Harbor and all the outdoor activities the rest of the park and island have to offer. Breakfast or sunset on the deck offers spectacular views, including the occasional sailboat race going by. Our small dogs are welcome (on their best behavior!). Mimi and Rick are great hosts - a Somes Sound and harbor cruise in their boat is part of the fun. The property is clean and well-maintained.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying at Seaweed during three summers. This spacious and comfortable cottage is the perfect place to relax and gaze at beautiful Somes Sound. It is situated near great hiking trails, kayaking spots, and our favorite restaurants. What more could you ask? The owners, Mimi and Rick, are super friendly and responsive. We look forward to yet another wonderful stay at Seaweed this September.

Amazing Cabin - Wonderful Family/Owners

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Seaweed and our 13th year renting with the Mooers & Musetti Families. We continue to return year after year due to their wonderful hospitality, the beautiful cabin and our love of Acadia. The cabin was rebuilt from the ground up and is such a gem! It is in a nice private location right on the water, with easy access to all Mt. Desert's charms. The property is kept extremely clean and well-maintained. Everything you could need for your visit is there and in perfect working order or comfort-level. The owners, Rick and Mimi are fabulous hosts and you can tell they care a lot about their property as well as the island they call home. I would highly recommend any property rental from this family. We continue to return year after year and start to count down the days to our next visit the day we leave.
