Summertime on the Quietside!

It doesn't get better than this!

Play bocce on the home court, stroll through the mature gardens, reach down and pluck a sun ripened tomato, lounge around the campfire, put your feet up in the screened patio with a good book.

Or take a short walk down to the town dock and take your boat out for a ride or buy a lobster for dinner from the local fishermen.

This Mount Desert Island (Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Tremont, Northeast Harbor) home is for sale. See the entire listing here.

Next best thing to MDI ocean front living

Why pay high taxes for oceanfront when you can simply stroll down to the "Algerian Coast" in beautiful, uncrowded Seal Cove?

Surrounded by Nature Conservancy land on three sides, eagles fly over head daily. You're only immediate neighbor is a summer guest cottage. The road only has six owners including a 65 acer farm, a summer cottage and a few family compounds. Six months out of the year the cove is your's alone. The rest of the year join the neighbors and a few tourists for BBQ's over an open fire on the shore.

Or moor your boat in the town landing. Join the kayak tours or explore Seal Cove on your own in your own boat. Hike the local trails from your front door or take a quick drive to Acadia National Park which surrounds the area.

The house is a expanded salt box cape with post and beams with a great sunroom, screened three season room. Complete with hammock and outdoor spa! The perfect place to be unless you like being crammed in Bar Harbor with the assault of cruise ships and tourists.
