Where you’ll be

Seal Cove, Maine, United States

Located in Seal Cove, Maine, at the Long Pond entrance to Acadia National Park. 'Ferncrest' is on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, near Pretty Marsh. It sits on the edge of a field overlooking Western Mountain. Two ponds are within walking distance. A short drive on unpaved roads brings you either to the ocean or the largest lake in Acadia National Park.

The bustle of Bar Harbor is about 20 minutes away. The islands, mountains, oceanfront, ponds, trails, motor roads, and carriage roads of Acadia National Park are the biggest attraction in the area. Some of that beauty is right out the door of this guest apartment; the rest is close by.

Nearby convenience stores are located in Bernard and Somesville; grocery and other shopping can be found in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor.

I purchased "Ferncrest" in 1984. The rural road and view of Acadia National Park are what drew me. I have been making it my own ever since.

During your stay

I will greet you upon arrival and give you an orientation to the apartment and the area. As a former Acadia National Park Ranger, I will provide first-hand information about visiting Mount Desert Island and other area attractions. I will even tell you about my favorite walks: one for a foggy morning, another for that crystal-clear, blue-sky afternoon.
