Spectacular Oceanfront View

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here each year for the last several years and look forward to returning next year. This bright, light home invites in the outside with its large windows overlooking an island-studded ocean. Views of lobster boats checking their traps and sailboats crossing in front of the beach provide peaceful entertainment for those moments when you return from exploring the island. The house is conveniently located minutes from the restaurants and shopping of Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor, and Northeast Harbor. We highly recommend this home for your Mt Desert stay.

Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5

After a week here we are truly sad to be leaving this very well appointed home on the beach. Close to everything, including the lobster pounds. Beach a few steps from the back door, secluded area yet easy access to Acadia-2 minutes away, and downtown Bar Harbor. Mike the owner was very easy to work with and made sure our stay was memorable. I highly recommend this getaway, in fact, we are considering an additional stay next year. Great value. Lots of room for our family. We found everything we needed for a great vacation. Thanks Mike!

That view and that beach

  • 5 of 5

It's actually hard to believe you are sitting on your own private expanse of rocky seawall beach between Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor among the million dollar estates. But you really are. And twice a day it's transformed by tides to what feels like two very different and equally exciting shores. In between you can gaze uninterrupted to Bear Island and Sutton Island beyond. Mornings you're pleasantly stirred by lobster boats and days can be filled by watching the many types of boats go by.

The property is just as described, but the view and setting is even more impressive than shown. The location is ideally away from the noise and crowds of Bar Harbor but a stones throw from the lovely sand beach in Seal Harbor. Seemed like everything on the island was 20 minutes away from the property. Found it to be a great retreat from the more touristy parts of MDI but convenient to all the necessities of a week away.

There are a few minor things to know when you consider this property, though. The house is 50 or so feet from Route 3 which means you hear every passing car / truck. This isn't a terrible distraction, but you do notice it.

There is a fold-away couch in the den (which has a full bath next to it) if you would like 3 truly private bedrooms. The loft is above the master and does not have it's own bath like the other bedrooms. While occupants of the loft and master can't see each other because of a high railing, you can certainly hear everything. Perhaps this arrangement is perfect for members of the same family (kids upstairs and parents down)?

And did I mention the private beach and the view...

Seal Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family -- parents and three teenagers. Lovely location. Perfectly described on the website. The house is close to entrance to Acadia National Park, and very close to the charming coastal towns of Seal Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor. An ideal house for a family with children looking for a perfect Maine vacation.

A VIEW TO DIE FOR

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you notice when you enter is the view. Two large windows that frame the trees, water and islands in the distance like living works of art. The house is comfortable and inviting. You're only regret is that it's not yours and you're only there for a short time. Conveniently located, you can easily explore the island, the Acadia National Forest and Bar Harbor by car. A few minutes from the front door is the entrance to a beautiful park you can easily explore on foot. For a pair of Californians, the Maine coast and Mt. Desert Island was a revelation. We hope to return one day.

A must stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is what you see. The pictures represent what you see when you look out the window. We had a great time. With two living rooms and a sitting area in the master we were able to have peace and quiet when we wanted it. The location was great, easy access to the park and every where else. Library overlooks the master suite, With great views as well. The owner's were easy to deal with and answered all my questions. I would recommend this to others.
