This vacation rental is very special! The cozy, warm feel of the place helps you to relax. Seal Harbor is the jewel village of the island and a contrast from the touristy town of Bar Harbor that is a ten minute ride away. Northeast Harbor is just five minutes away. Some of the world's best sailing and boating waters are surrounding this area. The range of things to explore is endless. There is a little of everything cultural and sporty, safe and healthy. Acadia National Park is the smallest national park in the USA, but it is the fourth most visited national park. Most of the park is on Mt. Desert Island and it only has a 40 mile diameter but it is packed with delightful sea villages, rugged rockbound coastlines, sandy beaches, mountains (Cadillac Mt. with auto road), and exciting coves. Restaurants abound, shopping and galleries are all over the place. The natural beauty is the best part of this island, and it's uniqueness is world renowned!!!!

The first floor has a living room with vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace, and entertainment center with cable TV, VCR, and DVD player. Free internet WIFI services and phone services. Nicely decorated kitchen with NEW SPACIOUS PANTRY, expandable breakfast/dining table and custom tiled floors. There is a NEW finely furnished dining room. NEW FULL bathroom with washer/dryer are available on first floor.

The second floor has two bedrooms with a full bathroom in between them. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a set of twin beds. A single or double air bed can be made available for an additional guest upon request.

There is an outdoor picnic table and charcoal grill to enjoy the spacious front lawn area. A quiet and safe playground is a two minute walk away at the Acadia Oceanography Institute schoolyard. Welcome to our special rental!!!

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Acadie cottage (Seal Harbor #296222) is a gem of a cottage. It is very comfortable and has all the conveniences one would like while staying near Acadia National Park. We enjoyed being able to relax in the cabin during and make our own dinners.

Acadie cottage is also ideally located on Mount Desert Island (MDI). There is an Acadia Park entrance and right in Seal Harbor there is a lovely beach for nice early morning walks. The cottage is also in between the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor or the quieter side of MDI, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Both lovely towns and a must see.

Our family highly recommends Acadie cottage for your next stay in Acadia!

Owner's Response: HI! Sylvia: Thanks so much for your encouraging review! It was so nice to meet you and your family. Glad you had a wonderful visit with the foliage at its peak, so spectacular this year!! Fall is especially beautiful along the ocean here on the rock bound coast of Acadia. I appreciate all of your kind care of my place and hope you will return someday! Take care and be well and happy! Safe travels everywhere you go! Warm regards, Rhonda

Very spacious, well-equipped, convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

An ideal home base from which to explore Acadia National Park and the eastern side of Mt. Desert Island. Located right by Rt. 3, but on a quiet side street a short walk away from Seal Harbor. Very close to the southern end of the Park, particularly Jordan Pond. The house itself is both spacious and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped. And the yard is big enough for a game of frisbee. I highly recommend this accommodation.

Outstanding Vacation at Acadie Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent 5 wonderful days on MDI at Acadie Cottage in Seal Harbor. A charming and beautiful home, Acadie Cottage had ALL the amenities and was in a perfect location : 10 mins to Bar Harbor and 5 mins to the Park Loop via an almost secret back road by Jordan Pond. Very peaceful and quiet which was a great escape from busier Downtown Bar Harbor. A beautiful yard with blooming flowers - a great place to unwind with family. In short, Rhonda Soucie's Acadie Cottage made for a delightful stay that was truly "sans souci"! Highly recommended! Hoping to return in the future!

Owner's Response: Hi! Bill: It is people like your family that make my rental so special!! Your kind and positive observations and experiences add to my aim to assist renters in having a fabulous Maine adventure! Acadie Cottage is a real relaxing getaway from the busy summer activities. So glad you enjoyed the place and hope you will come back anytime. "Sans Soucie" was a considered name for the cottage! Your family was great at helping to end your stay by pitching in and stripping the beds and starting a wash of towels and leaving the trash in the outside trash cans, and much more! Thanks again for taking such good care of my rental. Your family left such a light footprint. Have a fun summer and safe travels wherever you go! Best regards, Rhonda
