About Amber Howard

SeaStone Cottage was purchased in the spring of 2013 by Amber Howard, a local island resident. As the daughter of a stone mason, Amber decided to pay homage to her heritage and name this property after the stone cairns that guide hikers through Acadia National Park. With SeaStone Amber hopes to share her love of adventure and travel, all on the island she first experienced as a little girl, and continues to rediscover as she moves forward in this new endeavor.

Amber Howard purchased this house in 2013

Why Amber Howard chose Bar Harbor

This summer Mount Desert Island was selected as the 25th best island in the world by Travel & Leisure. Sand Beach was featured as the Destination of the Day by The Huffington Post. Acadia National Park was rated as the 2nd best for biking in the country. And Bar Harbor's Town Square was honored as one of the most beautiful by Travel & Leisure.

This island is known as 'Eden,' and I hope that while you visit with us you are able to Live, Travel, Adventure, and experience this amazing place and come to love it as I have.

What makes this house unique

SeaStone Cottage is in the ideal location for those looking for a complete vacation experience on Mount Desert Island. Spend your morning swimming in Echo Lake, or jumping off the secluded cliffs into Long Pond. Enjoy the view of Somes Sound from the top of Acadia Mountain. Hike the Beehive in the afternoon, or if you're daring take a chilly dip at Sand Beach. End your evening in Bar Harbor enjoying dinner or watching the sun set from the top of Cadillac Mountain. Don't forget to end the night with some ice cream while you enjoy live music in the Village Green, or a cocktail at any of the local watering holes. Wherever you go, you are always just minutes away from SeaStone!

Perfect jumping point for a stay on Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed for our stay during the Mount Desert Island Marathon. Three comfortable bedrooms and a kitchen so we could make our own meals before the race. It's a short drive into Bar Harbor and a fairly inexpensive cab ride (it cost us about $18 each way). We couldn't be more happy with our stay.

Very nice property and very good location to visit the Acadia National Park!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice 2-night stay in this property. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the master bedroom has a Jacuzzi in its master bathroom. The property was very clean and well-maintained and there is everything you need to cook and have barbecues. It is a very good location to visit and drive around the Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor is only a ~10-min drive from the property. Bar Harbor is a very nice and enjoyable little town with several nice restaurants and shops. Definitely a place to stay to visit this part of Maine !!

Little down side: no real table to eat in the property, only a kitchen island/bar countertop. Maybe a table was outside, but we didn't see it.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot for a three-generation girls getaway. Plenty of room to relax, sleep, cook a meal, and a quick drive to anywhere in Acadia and the surrounding towns! Highly recommended!

Great place for a friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great rates and location to enjoy a getaway. The house is clean and comfortable. Also close to Bar Harbor a as well as Acadia. I was nervous about picking location since it was the first time traveling with these friends. Could not been happier with house and location. We enjoyed sitting outside just socializing. Unfortunately we didn't see any chipmunks.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. Nice place . Although it was farther from Bar Harbor than we expected, it's only about a 10 minute drive. Lovely area with trees all around.
