About the Property
National park entrance; Park Ranger owner; 2 bedrooms that sleep 3.
I will greet you upon arrival and give you an orientation to the apartment and the area. As a former Acadia National Park Ranger, I will provide first-hand information about visiting Mount Desert Island and other area attractions (Seal Cove Auto Museum is just around the bend). I will even tell you about my favorite walks: one for a foggy morning, another for that crystal-clear, blue-sky afternoon.

Located in Seal Cove, Maine, at the Long Pond entrance to Acadia National Park. 'Ferncrest' is on a dead-end town road on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, near Pretty Marsh. It sits on the edge of a field overlooking Western Mountain. Two ponds are within walking distance. A short drive on unpaved roads brings you either to the ocean or the largest lake in Acadia National Park.
Nearby convenience stores are located in Bernard and Somesville; grocery and other shopping can be found in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. The bustle of Bar Harbor is about 20 minutes away. The islands, mountains, oceanfront, ponds, trails, motor roads, and carriage roads of Acadia National Park are the biggest attraction in the area. Some of that beauty is right out the door of this guest apartment; the rest is close by.
Other Activities: star gazing
Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: I have been helping public and private landowners protect New England's special places since 1974. Positions with The Nature Conservancy, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and National Park Service support my conservation services for land trusts and park agencies. I also offer facilitation and interpretive planning services For more.
Why the Owner Chose Seal Cove, Tremont, Maine, United States of America:
The quiet dead-end road and view of Acadia National Park are what drew me to 'Ferncrest.' I have spent the past 32 years making it my own.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This residence is gay friendly. Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island merchants do not particularly cater to gay and lesbian tourists. However, there are some gay-owned businesses and welcoming congregations on the island. I offer my local knowledge to help gay visitors find their way.
