Rental of the Week: Cliffhanger in Seal Harbor, Maine

Cliffhanger.03Located high up on Ox Hill on the southern coast of Mount Desert Island stands Cliffhanger, a substantial summer residence, built in 1928. Originally a hunting lodge known for its dueling fireplaces in the main living area, this gracious retreat boasts cut granite, slate roof and stone landscaped terraces that blend beautifully with the natural rock ledges and evergreen trees. Seal Harbor's village center is just down the hill with its public beach, private clubs and Acadia National Park's Stanley Brook entrance.
