We purchased this farmhouse with hopes of renovating and bringing it back to its original condition. However, as we started the project we discovered it would be too overwhelming and made the painful decision to take down the old property and rebuild. By using the same footprint and style we have been able to maintain the character of the 'farmhouse' we fell in love with.
Love the radiant heat flooring, sky lights, steam shower, coziness of the house and truly enjoy cooking in the beautiful gourmet kitchen while looking across at the pond and Western Mountain on Mount Desert Island.
The immaculate home is beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishing and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. Spacious; with multiple places to read, dine, watch TV, listen to music or just "vegetate" while enjoying the airy view from inside or outside the house. It is well located with easy access to Acadia, village shopping and dining and all area activities. The Chases are gracious and helpfully In welcoming you to their delightful home
When life starts to feel the weight of complex challenges and extreme changes, sometimes an equally extreme getaway is in order. MDI in its desolate, cold and unforgiving Winter season was just the thing…Just you, the howl and splendor of inconceivably beautiful Nature, and 2 weeks of inspiration, quiet reflection and days filled with as much adventure, hiking and sightseeing as the weather and your stamina will allow. What made this possible, and perfect, was the opportunity to stay in Seal Cove at Windy Hill Farm. I woke each morning there to the sun rising over the pristine landscape, and spent early hours reading and writing stretched out like a house cat on the window seat in the upstairs sitting area. Then we were off to a few hours exploring along the cliffs and shores of Acadia, which we essentially had to ourselves. Our frozen faces always melted into wide smiles as we returned to this well-appointed, radiant heated, newly built farmhouse. And if on any day the Maine cold was a bit too extreme, one step into the master suite’s steam shower guaranteed complete renewal. If we got back early enough we could watch the sun set and full moon rise through the grand windows looking out at Seal Cove Pond glistening with a Winter halo of ice and snow. There are no summer tourist attractions this time of year, and only one or two restaurants open on the island, so dinner "in" is your best option. There are easily accessible grocery stores, and the house’s gourmet kitchen and Wolfe stove will make a chef out of anyone! My partner and I are both very particular about where we stay, and this house is exceptionally well conceived and crafted, clean, and comfortable beyond even the most refined expectations, including furnishings, beds and linens. A stunning two story reclaimed stone fireplace, 12 inch exposed beams, one of my favorite Restoration Hardware chandeliers hanging from the vaulted living room ceiling, soothing wall colors, and multiple TVs and WIFI for those who must stay connected all add to the level of enjoyment this space offers. It is so completely planned as a vacation rental that you will never have to think about anything. All your needs will be satisfied and you may feel more integrated, healthy, and whole than you have in years. Thank you Owners for sharing your home and giving us the chance to know the island in a state of perfect stillness, and ourselves as well. I sometimes dream about being there still. It was unforgettable!
We feel very fortunate to have found this AMAZING Farmhouse for our Acadia National Park Hiking and Biking vacation… And without hesitation would recommend this home to anyone looking for a heavenly, yet adventure-filled vacation!
Upon arrival, the home immediately exceeded our expectations… Wow! The Farmhouse is incredibly warm, relaxing, immaculate in every aspect, and finely detailed. The prior reviewer’s use of the word “Exceptional” is absolutely fitting.
We enjoyed every detail the Farmhouse has to offer - especially the stunning fireplace, the luxurious steam shower (double yay!), the well-appointed gourmet kitchen, and the unbelievably comfortable mattress and linens. All of these are such delightful creature comforts to enjoy after a day of hiking and biking in the close by Acadia National Park. In addition to the striking interiors, the peaceful location and magnificent view add to the incomparable ambiance of this beautiful home.
On top of all that, the owners are easy and wonderful to work with. There is not a single thing that can be done to improve this property! We hope to return in the fall and won’t even look for another rental when we return to this area... as we look forward to heading straight to the Farmhouse!!
Exceptional home overlooking Seal Cove. Top if the line appliances, very comfortable for a great getaway. Owners thought of everything when designing their home. Close to great eateries including lobster pounds. Also close to Acadia National Park which is a hiker's paradise. We didn't kayak or canoe, but there were locations nearby. Downtown Bar Harbor was about 30 min away and busy. Great local shops. Area is serviced by a free local bus. The shuttle could be picked up about 10 minutes away and saved on parking hassles downtown. Overall, a great house and a great place to have a family vacation.
We are located 14 miles from Bar Harbor, 7 miles from Southwest Harbor and 15 minutes to Acadia National Park
