My wife and I were totally mesmerized by the sheer beauty and setting of the property.

It provided a homely atmosphere in an environment that was totally breath taking.

A truly beautiful home with accents that not only provided a surrounding to be awed, but provided a relaxing atmosphere to fit our needs.

Thank you to Chelcey for being so accommodating.

Relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sea Heather Cottage in Salisbury Cove. Very clean with a very workable kitchen and living area for our extended family. The view is beautiful! Close to Acadia National Park. Can't say enough in favor of this vacation cottage.

Much more than was expected!

  • 5 of 5

What can I even say to express how much we loved our experience? From the private beach to the fire pit to the house to the beautiful pool, this entire property was amazing! So much more than we expected. The house was furnished perfectly with so much room to stretch out and really relax. The beds were top notch and helped to sleep away the sore legs from hiking the wonderful trails that scatter the island. The kitchen was full of everything needed for cooking, no need to bring anything with you except a clear mind to take in the incredible views from the deck and the beach below. Sunsets from the fire pit really capped off the day. This is a secluded MDI paradise, one that we will be returning to with our kids as soon as it can be arranged. Communication from the owner Chelcey was always perfect, so helpful! Thank you so much Chelcey for allowing us to take part in your paradise, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and went home fully relaxed!

We felt entirely pampered. Our every need had been anticipated and provided for. A true joy!

  • 5 of 5

The grounds are immaculately groomed and beautifully appointed. The house is delightful- spacious with sunlight streaming through huge windows. Our view of the ocean and beyond was spectacular. A quiet walk on the beach offered a serene respite from the day's activities. My family greatly enjoyed the sa!t water pool, with a granite diving rock. I would love to return to this luxurious piece of heaven for a future vacation experience.

Absolutely wonderful stay in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay for 4 nights at Sea Heather. Spacious, comfortable, perfectly appointed house. Gorgeous waterfront views. Close to Bar Harbor, Acadia, great restaurants and shopping. Was hard to leave the house to see the sights of MDI. First visit to Maine coast and could not have imagined it being any better. Owner, Chelcey was gracious,accessible and easy to deal with . The only (small thing) that would have made it better would have been access to a kayak to enjoy the water in the back and perhaps some bikes to enjoy the carriage trails but I understand the difficult logistics with making these available at the house. Can't wait to re-book for next year.

We stayed here for the Memorial day weekend and loved it! We felt at home and are looking forward to returning in the future. This place simply became the go-to place for our future visits of the park.
