Property description

This spacious turn of the century shingle-style cottage is set with a westerly view overlooking blue hill bay just steps from the water at the head of the cove, with deeded access for kayaking and beachcombing along the inner reaches of seal cove.
The private setting includes lawn and gardens with a backdrop of wood and meadows. Located on the westerly side of mount desert island, the cottage is close to acadia national park. Closeby are some great trails including acadia mountain, seawall, western mountain and access to seal cove pond. From the cottage it is only a few minutes to southwest harbor and twenty-five minutes to bar harbor. We know you will enjoy the quietude and privacy of the western side of the island.

The six-room plan includes four bedrooms and two and one half baths, which can comfortably accommodate six. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a private bath and two more
Bedrooms on the second floor. The fully outfitted country kitchen, is generously supplied with dishes, silverware, cookware, etc. The spacious living/dining room features large picture windows
With water views and a full view woodstove for warmth and atmosphere on cool maine evenings. The easterly deck and westerly porch provide the perfect spots for enjoying the morning sunshine and afternoon breezes. From the front porch are extraordinary views of the cove and magnificent sunsets over blue hill bay. For those who need to remain in contact with the outside world there is cable television and high speed internet access.

If your idea of a visit to the maine coast includes activities like hiking, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, tide pool and beach combing, swimming, birdwatching or soaking up the sun sitting in a comfy chair reading your favorite novel, you are sure to find plenty to enjoy right here in Seal Cove.
