Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at the Seal Cove Cottage many times and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has always been well maintained. The location is perfect with a view of the Cove and the advantage of being on the quiet side of the island. The cottage is very comfortable and with the usually cool nights, the wood stove makes the living room cozy. Each year that we have visited the Cottage, we are met with an improvement of some kind making it even more accommodating. We have flown around the island and photographed the Cottage from the air including a breathtaking view of the Cove. We look forward to our visit in August. It is the highlight of our year. It is easy to write about the Cottage when you enjoy it so much.

Welcome to Seal Cove Cottage
Seal Cove Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

A perfect place to stay on MDI

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Seal Cove Cottage was all that we hoped it would be. Full of charm and with ample space, this vacation home was equipped with everything you could ever need. The location on the cove was private and very beautiful, and the owners could not have been more cooperative, helpful and friendly. A wonderful corner of Mount Dessert Island.
