Located at the end of a private drive on well sheltered Seal Cove, our secluded 20 acres of land also provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. We have several hundred feet of private shore frontage with beach, ledges, and tidal pools for hours of exploring. Canoes and kayaks can be launched easily on our beach. Located across the cove is a well maintained public boat launch and dock for larger watercraft. Although you may not want to leave beautiful seal cove, you'll want to venture out, as the site-seeing and recreational opportunities abound on mount desert island. We are located less than 10 minutes from the village of Southwest Harbor and about 20 minutes from Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Acadia National Park. There are endless mountains and trails to hike or bike, museums to visit, whale or bird watching, first class shopping and dining to experience, and excellent fresh and salt water fishing. For the golfing enthusiasts, close by in Southwest Harbor is the Causeway Club, a fun and scenic 9 hole course. For a bigger golf challenge, you can play the famous 18-hole Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor. After a full day of island adventure, come back to a peaceful setting to prepare fresh seafood for dinner in our well equipped kitchen and enjoy a beautiful sunset while relaxing on our front porch overlooking Seal Cove and Blue Hill Bay..
