Recent Seal Cove property reviews

  • Perfect get-away

    "My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The cabin was clean, private, and felt very "homey". We loved that there was room for our bikes and hiking/ picnicing junk. The price is incredible and we were able to save even more money by stocking the fridge with breakfast foods and sandwich makings. It is fun that there is a map of the island on the wall in the living room so you can plan your day trips. We fell in love with the island and would gladly stay at this rental again if we visit the area again. The cabin included a phone for local calls which was great because my cell phone didn't get service except for on the top of Cadillac Mountain. Also nice was a cable TV - we caught updates of the Tour de France. The owners are kind and all of the amenities listed are accurate. Fun places close by: sunset at Pretty Marsh, kayaking at Long Pond, nature hike and tour at lighthouse, seawall walk at Bar Harbor, biking at Acadia (we would recommend hybrid or mountain bikes), hiking at Acadia, window shopping in town, and dining at Thurstan's Lobster Pound."

  • Awesome cabin, awesome surroundings! Great for a family!!

    "Just completed my third stay at this same location, and words cannot describe how happy I am to have found this place! To start, the location is perfect. Being in Seal Cove, on the western coast of Mount Desert Island, it is far less congested and hectic than the Bar Harbor area. The area is extremely quiet and gives you a great sense of seclusion. The cabin is perched just uphill from Seal Cove, meaning you are just a short walk from the water. This is a tidal cove, so at high tide you can enjoy incredible kayaking (kayaks available from property owners) and at low tide you can walk completely across! My kids (14 and 11) really enjoyed walking through the cove at low tide, as there is a LOT of sea life to find (mussels, clams, crabs, etc). If you enjoy kayaking, or have ever wanted to try it, this location is perfect. The back end of the cove (by the cabin) is wide and shallow and ALWAYS calm. The narrow cove opens up into a bay at the sea, and the views are breathtaking!! As for the cabin itself, it is exactly as the owners describe. It has been kept in immaculate condition. It is not like other rental properties that feel "generic" or "sterile". When you walk into this cabin, it feels like stepping into your own place - like home! It is warm and inviting and incredibly cozy! The tap water in the cabin is better than ANY bottled water you can get. There are endless bookshelves filled with reading material and games for the whole family. Lots and lots of comforters and blankets for those chilly Maine nights. The owners of the cabin live nearby (on the same 6 acre property) and are the nicest people you will ever wish to meet. They are warm and hospitable and kind and welcoming. You could not ask for better hosts!!! In conclusion, I would say that this cabin is ideal for a family with kids. Being so close to Acadia, while staying out of the craziness of Bar Harbor, is great. Keep in mind there is no television and no internet service, which I find to be a huge blessing! If you want to spend some time really reconnecting with your family, you will not find a better place. I could not recommend this cabin more highly than by saying I will NEVER, EVER stay anywhere else on Mount Desert Island!!"

  • Great Family Spot

    "We enjoyed our stay. The tranquility farmhouse is lovely and spacious. We enjoyed the deck, grill and nightly firefly show. Seal Cove is a great place to stay on the island. Just enough off the beaten path and close to Southwest and Bass Harbor, two locations that provide wonderful dining and play options."

  • PERFECT HOME, PERFECT LOCATION! Thank you so much for making this the best vacation ever!!

    "We feel very fortunate to have found this AMAZING Farmhouse for our Acadia National Park Hiking and Biking vacation… And without hesitation would recommend this home to anyone looking for a heavenly, yet adventure-filled vacation! Upon arrival, the home immediately exceeded our expectations… Wow! The Farmhouse is incredibly warm, relaxing, immaculate in every aspect, and finely detailed. The prior reviewer’s use of the word “Exceptional” is absolutely fitting. We enjoyed every detail the Farmhouse has to offer - especially the stunning fireplace, the luxurious steam shower (double yay!), the well-appointed gourmet kitchen, and the unbelievably comfortable mattress and linens. All of these are such delightful creature comforts to enjoy after a day of hiking and biking in the close by Acadia National Park. In addition to the striking interiors, the peaceful location and magnificent view add to the incomparable ambiance of this beautiful home. On top of all that, the owners are easy and wonderful to work with. There is not a single thing that can be done to improve this property! We hope to return in the fall and won’t even look for another rental when we return to this area... as we look forward to heading straight to the Farmhouse!!"
