Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay. The house is conveniently located to both Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The kitchen was one of the most well-stocked I've experienced, which made cooking dinner for six every night a breeze. Diana was very responsive and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

A very nice vacation home conveniently located near Acadia National Park and the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this location as it was close to the park and walking distance to the beach. The fall colors were gorgeous. The home is well appointed and the shower is amazing - quite a luxury. We enjoyed using the pianos - especially our two musical children. Only draw back was the house was a little musty when we arrived and I have asthma. However it did dissipate when we opened the windows. We enjoyed our weekend there and appreciated the generosity of the hostess - Diana as she shared her pantry with us.

Fantastic stay in Seal Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My family had an absolutely wonderful stay in this house. The access to Acadia's Jordan Pond and carriage trails could not have been easier. We were able to go hiking, biking and running in the park every day. We ended up cooking in most nights and the fully equipped kitchen made it easy to tackle on any recipe we wanted (the popover tins were an added bonus!). When we did go out, the house was well placed for quick excursions into Bar Harbor and the rest of the island.

Diana, the homeowner, couldn't have been more helpful on providing recommendations for restaurants and activities for rain and shine.

Everyone in the family loved their time here and we would stay here again in a heartbeat
