Property description

Amazing view and gardens. This Seal Harbor summer 'cottage' is a unique 'one of a kind' house located on exclusive 'Ox Hill' in Seal Harbor, Maine. This expanded deck house has 5 bedrooms and 2 and 1/2 bathrooms. It boasts beautiful gardens in front and in back, a lovely rocky ledge, privacy, multiple decks for enjoying the spectacular ocean view or the night sky and a badminton field, plus 3 acres of woodland. The living room and kitchen area are wide open. This is the perfect vacation rental for a family or family and friends who want to truly relax and escape in a stunning locale and informal setting.

3rd Floor Master Bedroom Suite has its own private two level deck and spectacular floor to ceiling windows. High-speed internet access, washer & dryer, and pristine Maine well water. Windows galore - the house is informal and open to the outside so that you can see the beautiful surroundings from anywhere inside. Lounge inside or out and experience the glorious sights and smells and activities that only Mount Desert Island can offer.

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 walk the streets of the hill and get lost picking blueberries or simply experiencing the splendor of the area. Ride a bike down the hill to beautiful Seal Harbor or into Acadia National Park to take advantage of the many miles of carriage trails. Grocery stores are located in Northeast Harbor and nearby Bar Harbor where you will also find many restaurants and lots of shopping.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1963

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Seal Harbor, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
Simply put, if you want to vacation in an easy, clean, beautiful setting, with incredible light, privacy and views - this is the place.
