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 Town Hill

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!

Clean, cozy, and cost effective!

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at this home for a weekend with my siblings. Our objective was to find a place to spend a couple of nights that was close to Acadia National Park. We all had a comfortable place to sleep, and were about 15 minutes from the park. The home was clean, check-in and check-out procedures were clear, and we had everything we needed for the weekend.

It's not a huge place, however the ad is consistent with what we got. The shower/whirlpool in the master bathroom was cool, water pressure wasn't great though.

Overall, we had a nice experience and I would recommend staying here!

Good quiet location for Bar Harbor

  • 4 of 5

This was a good location for all that we wanted to do and see in the area. Beds were comfortable. Place was clean and located in a quiet area. 3 ring binder did a great job of suggesting dining options and things to do while in the area. Lots of choices on tv for things to watch at night. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Jacuzzi was hard to get in and out when taking a shower in master bathroom. Futon in living room reminded why we got rid of ours very uncomfortable to sit in when watching TV.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great place to stay. We were 4 adults and our stay was quite comfortable with everything we needed included in the home. There is not an inside table that fits 4, but there is plenty of seating and small tables so it did not matter. Kitchen is very well stocked with spices, dishes, etc. Lovely, peaceful and quiet setting but still close to Bar Harbor and Acadia. Would very much recommend this home.

Cozy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We had a 3 night stay to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor. This spot was close to both. Kitchen was well equipped and beds were very comfortable. The downside was no table for 4 to eat at but we only ate breakfast and took picnics for lunch and ate out for dinner . Amber had lots of info and tips for our stay. We had a wonderful stay!

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.
