Dog-friendly home w/ yard, wood stove, & great location close to the ocean
Enjoy the cozy atmosphere and comfort of this two-bedroom Seal Cove home, a classic family retreat with a spacious lawn, a wood-burning stove, and a wonderful location close to the ocean and the breathtaking trails of Acadia National Park.
This single-level cottage sits on a grassy, tree-lined property just one mile from the tranquil banks of Seal Cove. It's also only two miles from Seal Cove Pond and the eastern border of Acadia, six miles north of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, and 17 miles from the restaurants and shops of bustling Bar Harbor.
Step inside this quaint country cottage to find an open layout, hardwood floors, and charming homestyle decor. Return home from a day of hiking or kayaking to warm your feet by the wood stove, relax in the rocking chair with a good book, or play a board game with your kids on the plush L-shaped sofa.
Take a morning walk to photograph the lobstermen in Seal Cove before preparing a homemade breakfast back at home in the full kitchen. This open space is equipped with plentiful cabinet storage, a gas range, a dishwasher for easy clean-up, and an eat-in dining table with space for the whole family.
Spend the colorful days of autumn playing tag with your kids on the grass or fishing for bass and perch on the shores of Seal Cove Pond. You'll also have a flatscreen cable TV, Blu-ray and DVD players, a stereo system, and a collection of movies for fun-filled evenings at home.
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom, the Lucky Stone Cottage can accommodate as many as six guests. The blue master bedroom offers a queen-size bed, as well as a futon that provides ample space for a child. The second bedroom has a twin-over-full bunkbed, while the living room features a sofabed. The family dog is also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.
Whether you spend your days hiking, fishing, or whale-watching, you'll find a washer/dryer in the bathroom to help refresh your wardrobe. WiFi is also provided to help you post photos of your family adventures.
Thanks to its scenic location on the western shores of Mt. Desert Island, Seal Cove is a wonderful place of both serenity and convenience. You'll be just a short drive from the most iconic trails and landscapes in Acadia, including the Cadillac Mountain South Ridge Trail (19 miles east), the vertical ascent of the Precipice Trail (21 miles east), and the Ocean Path Trailhead at Sand Beach (23 miles east).
Stop by Cafe This Way in Bar Harbor for a delicious homemade breakfast or make an afternoon pit-stop at the Jordan Pond House for lobster stew and a plate of popovers. Just be sure to visit the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse at sunset for one of the loveliest views on the entire island.

Affordable and near Acadia Park. The house was very nice and had games for the kids to play with. Kitchen had everything needed to cook and eat. Felt like home.

Loved all the extras there: games, toys for kids, a full kitchen (many places say they are, but aren’t), and plenty of paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo, dish soap, etc.

We loved the comfortable feel of the home and it had all the amenities. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage. Super Clean! The proximity of the trails to the cottage was an added bonus. We loved hiking the Acadia trails with our two dogs. It was peaceful and serene and a perfect vacation for everyone!

The house was clean. It felt like home when we returned to it each day from our site seeing. The neighborhood was very quiet. The only complaint we had was that the towels smell like cigarette smoke when we dried off with them. Once we washed them, they were fine. This is a very nice place to stay, much better than staying at a hotel.

La maison est très fonctionnelle et très bien équipée. Il ne manque rien. Belle décoration sur le thème de la place. Très bien situé dans le sud de l'île proche de nombreux attraits touristiques. Nous y étions pour le marathon et ce fut un endroit idéale entre amis et reposant.

Very clean from the kitchen to the sheets, all was in good working order

The cottage had everything we needed and was a great place to explore Mt Desert Island & Acadia from. The sunset at Seal Cove was perfect, and the night sky was amazing. We had a really lovely weekend.

On the surface, it’s a great place; location, space, the kids loved it, and it’s peaceful. But upon looking closer, we noted it wasn’t as clean as we would have liked, it was damp (get a dehumidifier please - damp rid bags smell and aren’t effective) towels smelled of cigarette smoke, dirty linens in the closet, dirty dishes/wet plates in the cupboard etc. All the other reviews are so positive - I hope this was an anomaly - and I’m sorry we were the unlucky renters I suspect this sweet place is a bit neglected and needs some attention (the gutter above the front door is clogged with pube needles!) it’s the end of the season - who knows why.
We are sorry to see the rainy spell happening during this guest's visit made the home feel so damp and musty. We did do an extra clean for this guest while they were out for the day to address the housekeeping oversights, and we greatly appreciate our guest giving us the opportunity to do this. Thank you!

The rental home was well taken care of, clean and served as a perfect base for exploring the western side of Mount Desert Island. The location is about 30 minutes from Bar Harbor, but we discovered that many of the best hikes were around Southwest Harbor anyway. The home was well stocked for family use.
Franck M.Jul 2018
A warm and cosy family cottage a few miles from Acadia. Not to be missed.
Grzegorz M.Jul 2018
We found the house to be very clean. Kitchen was very well provided with utensils, pans, etc. There was a stock of maps, guides, and other useful information for a visitor. I highly recommend it.

We just got done staying at the Lucky Stone Cottage. It was on the quiet side of the island, so that was nice. It had a small yard that my kids (5 and 3) were able to play in. The house had pretty much everything a family would need. It even had a good selection of stuff for my kids to play with!
Just did a walk through, my friends stayed... They loved it. Beautiful room, we ate breakfast in the nice courtyard outside

This small house was what we expected...a good value for the money. It is not fancy but had everything we needed, except possibly a second bathroom but we were aware of it going in. Bed in master bedroom was very soft, so our back hurt a little in the morning. Kitchen was very nice as we cooked 1-2 meals a day. Our 4 young kids enjoyed playing outside on the grass. The house was quiet enough for being right off a Main Street. The location on the quiet side of the island was nice...close some great hikes like Acadia mountain and not too far from the main park.
We stayed here with another couple, and all had an incredible time. Beautiful rooms. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thank you for making the weekend so memorable!

All you need for up to six people. Well equipped. If you go in April you have the park almost for yourself.
Hannah W.Apr 2018
A little removed from Acadia and most attractions. Very pleased with what the house had to offer. Futon "matress" is several ill fitting cushions.
Gloria R.Oct 2017
We loved the house and the location!
Arnaud F.Oct 2017
The house was great for our needs. Good size, great kitchen, nice bedrooms and bathroom. Very quiet area.
But there were few things that bothered us.
1st when we came in we found many bead bugs on the floor in the bathroom kitchen and bedroom. It made us wondered when was the last time the house was cleaned up???
2nd the heater was really loud and we couldn't use the fire place because it was locked for some reason.
We are sorry to see this guest experienced a few issues with their stay. The home had been cleaned a few days prior to guest arrival; we apologize if bugs sneaked in during that time. The fireplace is not advertised as it is not available for guest use, but the property manager will inspect the heater so ensure our guests will be warm enough.

If you are visitng acadia ,this is a perfect place to stay.away from the bustle of bar harbour but close to all the places.
Karen K.Sep 2017
We just adored this home. The location was near a few of our favorite Mt Desert places of interest, like Southwest Harbor and not too far from Park Loop Road for cruising around the park. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We enjoyed the openness of the living room/kitchen area. Cable TV and Internet service worked great and there was a great selection of channels to watch. We felt very much at home in this house. I would definitely stay here again!
Michael C.Aug 2017
The house was very well kept, it was a peaceful side of the island and within 30 minutes of all the main attractions. It was nice for a family of 5 to do some home cooking and enjoying the evening together.
Pau Gean N.Jul 2017
The cottage was lovely and cozy, not to mention it was clean and complete with basic needs. We had a wonderful stay.
Christina B.Jul 2017
We enjoyed our stay! It was the perfect place for a family and we enjoyed the games
Martin T.Jul 2017
If you love nature go Arcadia. The Seal Cove area is more quite, we liked it like this.
Kevin L.Jul 2017
The house was perfect for a family of 4.
We had perfect weather in July, which makes everything so much better.
John G.Jul 2017
nice place to spend a few nights near Acadia National Park
