Seal Cove house description

The Quiet Side Farm is a renovated Maine farmhouse (circa 1886) located on 9.5 acres with a view of Western Mountain and 330 feet of unclaimed shore frontage on the mile long Hodgdon Pond. You can access the pond by taking the beautiful trail through our woods and then you can enjoy the water with our canoes (2) and kayaks (2). Hodgdon Road/Long Pond Fire Road is less than 1/4 mile away and provides access to both Hodgdon Pond and Long Pond. This farmhouse offers serenity as well as proximity to all of Mount Desert Island's attractions including Acadia National Park.

Our family just recently purchased this property while vacationing at Acadia National Park. While we enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Bar Harbor area, we really fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the “quiet side” of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. You can sit in the kitchen or on the back deck and enjoy the sun rising over the mountains or meander through its woods via our trail and reach the rustic natural waterfront of Hodgdon Pond. Our family thoroughly enjoys canoeing and kayaking on Hodgdon Pond!

The far side of Hodgdon Pond is protected and owned by Acadia National Park so wildlife is abundant. Deer, beavers, muskrats, occasionally otters and moose, as well as many types of birds including: bald eagles, sea osprey, and kingfishers have been seen.

Access to various hiking trails, mountains and picnic areas of Acadia National Park are not far away. Pretty Marsh picnic area is only 0.8 miles. Acadia National Park’s Beech Mountain, Thurston’s Lobster Pound, Bass Harbor Lighthouse, Southwest Harbor, historic Somesville, and Seal Cove Auto Museum are just some of the nearby attractions. Wanting to go to Bar Harbor, not a problem; it is just 12 miles.

We realize renting a house can be a difficult decision. If it helps at all, we have two other properties listed that you can check for reviews (#449096 and #599044).

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are a family of four and our vacations are precious to us! A time to bond and get things back into perspective. We feel Acadia is a fantastic place to do this. The natural beauty here is breathtaking! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Seal Cove:
              We chose this area because Acadia National Park is truly magnificent! While we enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Bar Harbor area, we really fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the “quiet side” of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. This property has everything we wanted: privacy, a nice yard, some woods, water frontage, mountain view, beautiful renovated farm house and yet close to all that Acadia has to offer!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You can sit in the kitchen or on the back deck and enjoy the sun rising over the mountains or meander through its woods and reach the rustic natural waterfront of Hodgdon Pond. The far side of Hodgdon Pond is protected and owned by Acadia National Park so wildlife is abundant. Deer, beavers, muskrats, occasionally otters and moose, as well as many types of birds including: bald eagles, sea osprey, and kingfishers have been seen.
