Very comfortable cottage on the "quiet side: of the island. upstairs is a good size double bed and full bathroom. Downstairs is combined living/dining/kitchen area - cozy but not cramped. Lower level is attached to owners house at back but remains very private. Owners are pleasant and easy to deal with on bookings/questions.I think this rental is an excellent value.The kitchen is well equipped, the furnishings comfortable and cable TV/board games are provided for entertainment. The location is about 30 mins from Bar Harbor in a small village - basic grocery store about a mile down the road, bigger supermarket about 5 miles away along with laundromat and small shops. I'd say car is essential altho there is a free island explorer bus that offers pretty good service in the season. Hiking on this side of the island means much quieter trails which we like. This is a place to relax and recharge - if you're looking for something different you should probably stay in Bar Harbor. Seamist met our needs perfectly.

Our family of 4 felt very at home in the cottage apartment. The description accurately portrays the site. The apartment is immaculate and well maintained. The owner makes it very comfortable with extra blankets, pillows, a TV with DVD, and best of all 2 lobster pots. She also provides many little extras like coffee and tea, shampoo and soap, etc. We were very pleased. We especially enjoyed that it is on the quiet side of the island. Its a 2 minute walk to the pier where you can buy fresh lobster or take a fantastic tour with Island Cruises. If you want good food at a reasonable price, Mainely Delights is also within walking distance. We highly recommend the Seamist Cottage for anyone who wants a quiet place to stay with a homelike feel.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children.
The description of the Seamist cottage is accurate. It was extremely clean and owners paid attention to all the details (ie-tempurpedic pillows, soft sheets, granite counters, etc). Cottage was decorated nicely. It was private even though it is attached to the main house. A must stay! I would recommend this to anyone who would like to stay on the "quietside" of the Island.
