Seal Point Cottage
FIRST FLOOR: Front Foyer with French doors on opposing walls leads to an open floor plan with professional Kitchen, island seating and adjacent Dining Area for up to 8 people. The Living Area offers two distinct conversation sites, one facing the shore and the second more intimate with benches and built-in seating set around a Maine granite fireplace -- the perfect place for a glass of wine, engaging conversation or a cup of tea and a good book. A Half Bath, a Kitchen Pantry and large Mud Room with side entry and laundry facilities complete this floor.
SECOND FLOOR: Ascend the stairs with built-in bookcases holding found treasures and board games to find two Bedrooms, each with a Double bed (not Queen or King) and built-in, cushioned bench with storage underneath at each end of the upper hallway. Between these two primary bedrooms sits a small TV Room with private balcony that serves as a third bedroom with its Queen futon bed and ship's ladder to extra futon mattresses on its loft floor. Two Full Baths, each with combined tub and shower complete this second floor area.
BONUS ROOM: Accessed via stairs from the Mud Room, the second floor Bonus Room serves as a fourth bedroom with another Queen futon sofa bed, TV, comfy chairs and extra space for quiet play. You might find this area best suited for ‘tweens, teens, and young adults.
OUTDOOR SPACES: Lovely covered porch with Adirondack chairs enjoys an eastward water view. Stone patio with small fire pit. Second floor balcony accessed from the second floor, central TV / Futon Bedroom. Garage for bike or boat storage. Barring unforeseen loss or circumstances, 4 or more kayaks are made available for tenant use, including a tandem.
NOTE: Satellite wireless Internet via HughesNet. Great for checking email and internet, but not efficient for video data or movie streaming.
About this area:
Known as the 'Gateway to Acadia,' Trenton and Lamoine enjoy mainland proximity to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park, with access to the expansive Union River Bay and Mt. Desert Narrows. Home to several local lobster pounds and close to Ellsworth dining, many homes in this area enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Desert's peaks, and swimming is generally warmer in the bay waters. Lamoine's public sandy beach, Trenton Community Trails, Wild Acadia Fun Park, and the Stanwood Bird Sanctuary are just a few of its attractions!
Amazing house - impeccably planned, beautiful and relaxing. Pictures don't do it justice. Would definitely stay here again and again! This was probably the nicest home we ever rented.
The house is so nicely appointed and decorated. We loved looking at the hand colored photographs and the other nice details of this Arts and Crafts style post and beam home. The fireplace nook was perfect for reading at the end of the day. And each bedroom having its own bathroom was a real plus when you are traveling with another couple.
