About the Property

Cottage, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

COMPLETELY REMODELED SUMMER 2014 - NEW KITCHEN WITH SUB ZERO AND WOLF APPLIANCES, NEW OUTDOOR DECKS, NEW ENLARGED DOORS AND WINDOWS TO CAPTURE THE INCREDIBLE VIEWS.
Sealight rents by the week from Sunday to Sunday.

Sealight is located in Sullivan, Maine, directly on Frenchman Bay/Sullivan Harbor. This nineteenth-century Maine summer cottage is gracious and spacious - truly a classic Maine family getaway.

With over 5,000 square feet and two acres of lawn, this six bedroom, four and one-half bath Bar Harbor-style cottage is ideal for families and also wonderful for a couple wanting to relax and get away from it all.

Breathtaking views across the water, facing south, of Frenchman Bay, Acadia National Park and the mountains of Mount Desert Island. Private 165 foot dock is great for launching your family kayak expedition.

There is a public boat launching ramp adjacent to the property for your watercraft. House is conveniently located beside a small inn which would lend itself for any overflow guests.

The house has kept its ambiance of days gone by. Very large rooms with outstanding views and four distinct living areas offer privacy to those seeking solitude! A fully remodeled new (Summer 2014) kitchen features Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, new living room, new den, entrance foyer, library, laundry room, breakfast room and formal dining room are located on the first floor, along with two newly added outdoor decks and a large outdoor patio. Also on the first floor is a long sun porch that is typical of the classic Bar Harbor-style cottages. Views, views, views from every room.

The spacious, sunny, charming enclosed sun porch that runs much of the waterside of the house invites cocktail parties, luncheons, or snuggling up with a book.

No Smoking, No Pets, Please.

Ellsworth is a ten minute drive from the house, but the house is set on over 2 acres with incredible water and mountain views and offers tremendous privacy. In Spring, 2014, house underwent major renovation which added new outdoor decks, new windows and doors downstairs, new bathroom, new living room, new kitchen with Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, new den and freshly painted interiors. The house is 125 years old and offers approximately 5,500 square feet.
