Seal Cove house description

This fully furnished home is in a peaceful field and forest setting and is charming, private, and quiet. Located amidst Acadia National Park, there are endless recreational possibilities. The quiet side of Mount Desert Island is a nature lover's paradise. A five minute walk puts you on some of the park's roads and trails, giving you access to nearby mountains and three different ponds. An ocean boat launch is only 2 miles away. Bass Harbor Lighthouse, (one of the most photographed in Maine), seafood restaurants, Bar Harbor, and the Swan's Island ferry are just a short drive. After a full day of activity, you can return for a relaxing whirlpool bath, enjoy a movie, or have a glass of wine on the deck. Fully equipped with everything you need to relax in comfort. It is a common sight to see deer, fox, and other wildlife right from the living room window or back deck while enjoying your morning coffee.


Our Guestbook: We will be grateful for our guests that take the time and trouble to make an entry in our guest book on line. Here is the really fun part though! We plan to keep a guest book on the kitchen table. I came up with the idea of having everyone add a recipe along with their comment. Since they will have been written from memory, these recipes will be family treasures that have been used a lot! It is wonderful idea. You will be able to try things from different cultures, (Chinese tea eggs for example). I hope it will make your vacation even more memorable. I am excited about our new guest book and hope it fills up quickly! Come join in the fun.

              Come share a piece of Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park is always one of the most visited parks in the country. The views are nothing short of spectacular. You will find tall pines seemingly growing out of rocks, mountains with granite cliffs, hiking trails, ponds, lakes and salt-water beaches, and ocean waves crashing in fantastic displays on our rock-bound coast. Lighthouses? You can see as many as five from Cadillac Mountain.

              Take in historic Bar Harbor. You can eat a pizza while watching a movie or listen to live music in the village square. There are bike rentals, sightseeing boats, whale-watching cruises, kayaking and rock climbing excursions just to mention a few of the adventures awaiting you. Lobster pounds and seafood restaurants are everywhere just in case you are interested. Not interested? How about gliding in a plane with no engine or seeing a lumberjack show with Tina from 'Survivor', or looking through the old Chicken Barn full of antiques or....

              Other Activities: golf, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoing, boat rentals, berry picking
