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!

Nice, comfortable place

  • 4 of 5

Small cabin set back from the road, quiet. Very comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Jacuzzi was great, although it is quite slippery getting in and out. Only downside is there are 2 chairs for a kitchen island, no other place to sit and eat. Very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia.

Great Access to Acadia!

This place was great, very clean with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. There was a sitting area in the back yard that was nice and private. Lots of great books and maps on hand to help you make the most of your stay. Wonderful place! Chris & Kylee

Very clean, good location.

Living room a little small but we knew that before arriving. Nice and clean appliances. Could have used a few more wash clothes. All-in-all, a great rental. Thanks for accommodating us, Amber!

Cute little home, VERY close to Acadia National Park

My family of 5 stayed at this property for three nights during our summer vacation. The location is absolutely ideal for those visiting the Park or running in and out of Bar Harbor. The house was very clean and relaxing. Thank you, Amber...we would easily stay here again!
