About Tony Mazlish

Hummingbird was named by our parents, who built it in 1963. They passed it on to their two sons, Tony & Jared, who own it together now, with our families. We spend most of July and August in the house each summer and rent it out in the fall and Spring. The home is very special to us and we hope to keep it in the family for generations. It is a simple, light- filled, comfortable and beautiful summer home that is a touchstone for our family and has brought us much joy for over 50 years.

Tony Mazlish purchased this house in 1963

Why Tony Mazlish chose Mount Desert Island

Simply put, if you want to vacation in an easy, clean, beautiful setting, with incredible light, privacy and views - this is the place.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a family reunion trip of adult couples. The house was very clean and well equipped. The location and view are exceptional. We saw a pair of huge wild turkeys walk across the back one morning. There is one king bedroom on the top floor, with a full bath, one king bedroom on the main floor with a half bath. The remaining bedrooms and full bath with laundry are on the bottom floor. The bottom floor does have a basement feel to it, but was very clean. All walls facing the back are almost exclusively glass French doors giving everybody an INCREDIBLE view. It was very private and felt very safe. If stairs are a problem, this probably wouldn't be the best house as no rooms require no stairs, but none require a whole lot either. The owner was great to work with and very friendly. I am glad we stayed here and would do so again if in the area!

Great stay with stunning view you cannot miss

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this unique property for two nights. Everything is ready and great. You could not find a better place with such a nice combination of views, spacious rooms to stay and the hospitality from the owner. Highly recommend staying at the Hummingbird for anyone looking for the authentic experiences in Acadia and Bal harbor

Great Location, Outstanding Views

  • 3 of 5

Incredible Views, Great Location near the Stanley Brook Entrance to Acadia! Very Nice Clean Summer Cottage. If we were only going to use this as a Two Bedroom we would have rated it Five Stars; however 3 of the 5 bedrooms and one bath is located in a walkout basement which in our opinion is in need of updating and was musty.

Beautiful, rustic summer home nestled in woods of Seal Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in Hummingbird Cottage. The house is tucked away in an absolutely stunning neighborhood in the woods of Seal Harbor with a majestic view of the ocean (especially from the master bedroom). The house had all of the amenities you might need for a vacation, while still offering a unique and rustic cottage experience. Though we stayed during a fairly chilly week in April and the house does not hold warmth super well, there were plenty of warm blankets, space heaters, and firewood. It's just a walk or quick bike ride away from beautiful hikes in the park and Seal Cove. (I recommend Hunters Brook Trail which is a fairly quick and easy hike down the coast right into Acadia with the trailhead located just a quick walk from Hummingbird). We would definitely choose Hummingbird Cottage when we come back to Acadia!

Perfect Place for an Acadia National Park Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay near Acadia to celebrate a 40th birthday. The house was clean, comfortable, and well equipped (even came stocked with park maps and firewood!) and perfectly located, with easy access to Acadia National Park. The weather was on the cooler side during the visit, but the space heaters did the trick and the weather certainly made time around the fireplace that much more enjoyable. We didn't get to spend much time out on the porches due to the weather, but imagine they would be lovely in the warmer weather. The communal areas were spacious, yet felt cozy - perfect for hanging out and relaxing. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the view from the master bedroom was breathtaking. Would definitely recommend staying at the Hummingbird!

Great weekend in beautiful Seal Harbor home

  • 5 of 5

Rolling out a vacation with 10 people is no easy task, but booking this home was as easy as it gets. The owner was responsive, very kind and welcoming. The house was easily accessible, well-appointed, and clean. Location was perfect as a basecamp for exploring Acadia NP and Bar Harbor, with plenty of privacy and space for our large group. Beds were extremely comfy (especially the master bed), and lots of lounge seating in the living room and multiple decks. The house is beautifully crafted, with plenty of character and comfort. Lots of splendid outdoor space as well for exploring, playing games, or just relaxing. An amazing home!
