Property description

This Seal Harbor summer 'cottage' is one of the original old cottage homes on the coveted 'Ox Hill' location in Seal Harbor, Maine. This grand home has 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It has a huge brick terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and many islands. The common spaces are quite large and comfortable. The large formal dining room can sit 12 people comfortably and the adjoining informal breakfast room can seat 6 people.

The amenities in this beautiful home are wireless internet, flat-screen TV with satellite, washer & dryer, industrial style gas stove, grill, cribs, and high-chairs. The private office has a fax machine and fireplace. There is a large fireplace in the family room and one in the dining room and wood is provided for those chilly Maine evenings. During the day the windows can all be opened to take in the fresh breezes from the ocean and the wonderful pine tree smells. The house has a large canoe that can be used as well as a mooring for rent for those that would like bring or rent a boat. Seal Harbor has access to fresh water lake swimming (Long Pond) and a nice sand beach at the head of harbor.

The unique location of this summer home offers a vacation for everyone. Those looking for an active vacation can enter Acadia National park just a mile away. Many Ox Hill residents ride their bikes right from their homes into Acadia National Park to take advantage of the many miles of carriage trails. People looking for a relaxing vacation can take advantage of the private outside terrace and gorgeous views of the ocean and islands as well as the comforts inside the home. Grocery stores are located in Northeast Harbor and nearby Bar Harbor where you will also find many restaurants and lots of shopping.

Why the Owner Chose Seal Harbor, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
This home has been enjoyed by three generations as a family gathering spot for 43 years. It has also hosted many high school and college reunions as well. The proximity to Acadia National Park and Seal Harbor beach make this location are one of the best on the island. The views from this house encompass Schoodic Point, Baker's Island, Little Cranberry Island, Great Cranberry Island and Bunker's ledge. The huge outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean is a wonderful entertaining spot as well as a great place to eat outside while taking in the view.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This big summer cottage is the ideal vacation spot for a family reunion or a multiple family vacation. With 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, family and friends can spread out and then gather together in the large dining room or family room. For active vacationers, people can walk, ride, or drive into Acadia National Park which is just a mile away. Seal Harbor has access to fresh water lake swimming (Long Pond) and a nice sand beach at the head of harbor. The house has a mooring for rent for those that would like bring or rent a boat.
