About this area:
Seal Cove is located on the western side of Mount Desert Island in the Town of Tremont. Adjacent to Acadia National Park's western borders, its tranquil setting boasts easy access to hiking trails, freshwater swimming at both Seal Cove Pond and Hodgdon Pond, and the spectacular rocky Maine coastline. Although rural in nature, Seal Cove is close to Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor's excellent restaurants, summer stock theatre, and other cultural outlets. The Seal Cove Auto Museum makes for a wonderful rainy day outing!
We stayed in Goodson Cottage during the second week of October 2021, and had a lovely time. The home was clean and comfortable, and had plenty of room for us to spread out and relax; each of the three of us had their own floor for sleeping, with our own bathrooms. The setting is amazing - so private and quiet, with a short walk to beautiful Seal Cove Pond; we watched sunset there, and even got up very early one morning to watch the sun rise over Bernard Mountain; it was magical! The location is perfect, as we enjoy being away from the crowds on the busy side of the Island...but it's close enough to drive to any hike we wanted to do within 30 minutes. It was great coming back to our "home" at the end of a day out on the trails, to a quiet and cozy place to gather for food and games. Two things to be aware of: the pictures are accurate - there are no curtains or other window coverings on the many windows! Not necessarily a "visibility" issue, because the home is so private, but if you don't like sunlight in the early morning, bring eye shades! Also, even though the time there was a getaway from ordinary life, there were times when the spotty internet service was a real downer - especially when we were trying to book reservations for driving up Cadillac Mountain! So...be prepared for occasional frustration with the internet service (the first time I've encountered this difficulty in the many years and places I've stayed on MDI).
