About this area:

The village of Seal Harbor has many attributes, including proximity to Northeast and Bar Harbor, a lovely hillside overlooking the quiet harbor and a well-protected public beach. The community abuts Acadia National Park, a significant portion of which was donated by Seal Harbor resident John D. Rockefeller. The Park Loop Road, the Wildwood Riding Stables, historic Jordan Pond House, and the many carriage roads around Day Mountain, Little Long Pond, the Bubbles, and Jordan Pond, are all easily accessible from the village.

Extended Family Trip

We loved Ilfracombe! The location could not have been any better. It was quiet and beautiful. The terrace was occupied by our party all times of day! Before and after hikes, sunrise to sunset. The house was exactly as described and was generously equipped with any needs we had. The dining room was spacious and perfect for family meals. Ilfracombe is a true gem.
