Captain's Quarters, an oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, is a private oceanfront home on 20 acres with several hundred feet of shore frontage. Located at the head of Seal Cove on beautiful Mount Desert Island, the home is minutes from the picturesque town of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and has breathtaking views of the Cove and coastal islands in Blue Hill Bay. Built in 1974, this home has been recently updated to offer guests a modern and spacious retreat for a relaxing summer get-away. Let this home be your own personal escape from all of your work-day worries and stress.

There is so much to do and experience on Mount Desert Island and the Captain’s Quarters is located conveniently close to any activity you may want to experience. Mount Desert Island is an outdoor enthusiast’s “heaven on earth”. What is your passion or what passion would you like to develop? Hiking, fishing, kayaking, biking, and exploring are all within reach. There are so many options available that your time at Captain’s Quarters will just fly by.

If you are a “foodie” and are looking to expand your epicurean palate with some local delights, be sure to check out the local bakeries and restaurants. Hodgdon’s Seafood is just down the road in Tremont. But also be sure to visit one or all of the following: The Little Notch Bakery in Southwest Harbor, Mainely Delights II and Thurston’s Lobster Pound in Bass Harbor or Beal’s Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor, just to name a few.

For guests who enjoy the arts, options to indulge this passion are close by as well. Spend the day strolling in Southwest Harbor and wander in and out of the art galleries in town. Be sure to stop in and browse the Wendell Gilley Museum in Southwest Harbor or take in a play at the Acadia Repertory Theatre in Somesville. The neighboring village of Northeast Harbor provides an escape from the crowds and allows for leisurely walks through town to discover some amazing local artisans. You can also buy a ticket on the mailboat departing from Northeast Harbor and visit the offshore islands of Big Cranberry Island or Islesford.

Of course, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are just minutes away where you can find many shops, eateries and activities to enjoy as well. You will want to be sure to plan to spend some time here during your stay. Acadia National Park is one of a kind and a “must see” for everyone. This will be one more item to cross off your bucket list!

Fishing enthusiasts and hikers will also find no shortage of places to explore. Lakes and ponds in the region offer opportunities to reel in lake trout, land locked salmon, brook trout, bass, perch and pickerel. Avid hikers will not be disappointed either. Mount Desert Island is a hiker’s paradise with loads of trails and carriage roads to discover.

The Captain’s Quarters also provides guests with the perfect spot to reconnect with family and re-energize. You will savor the time spent on the deck watching the boats, smelling the salt air or drinking in the views. Just imagine having your morning coffee as the sun rises or sipping an evening cocktail as you watch the sunset develop over the water.

Our accommodations include 3 spacious bedrooms – 1 master bedroom with a king bed, full private bath, ocean views and deck access; 1 guest bedroom with 2 twin beds ocean views and deck access; and 1 guest bedroom with 2 twin beds with garden view. Both twin bedrooms share a guest bathroom with shower.

The large modern kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher), dinnerware and cookware. You will find plenty of counter space for meal prep on those nights that you decide to eat at home. The adjoining great room provides an open concept feeling to the living room and dining room areas. The dining room seats 6 easily and can expand to accommodate up to 10 for those larger family gatherings. There are sliding glass doors that lead from the dining room to the deck and offer views of the cove while you sit at the table.

The spacious living room is a wonderful place to unwind after a long day of outdoor activities. It has magnificent views of Seal Cove and Blue Hill Bay through double sliding glass doors, a traditional fireplace, and access to the large deck. Other amenities include satellite TV, DVD player, wireless internet and stereo/CD player.

A coastal home would not be complete without a waterfront deck and the Captain's Quarters rewards its guests with one of the finest decks around. The wrap around deck will be the place that you find yourself often. It has a gas grill, chaise lounges and a large patio table with 6 chairs and is accessible from the living room, dining room, master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms. You will never grow tired of the scenery as you sit and relax on the deck. You will find that it is a true gem just steps from the water.

The lower level of the home is where you will find the laundry room and a separate family room/teen hangout space. The family room is also located on the lower level and has a TV, computer desk, and assorted board games. It provides a great spot for the younger family members to be on their own while the adults relax and chat in the living room.

The owners of the Captain’s Quarters have thought of it all when accommodating a family getaway. There is a large lawn area for outdoor games like volleyball, croquet, badminton, etc. In addition, the garage has been converted into a rec room with many games including foosball, darts, pool, air hockey and ping pong. The back lawn area is a great spot with an outdoor fire pit and seating area. Perfect for making s’mores and telling stories around the fire or for watching a rousing game of badminton.

For larger groups, there is the option to rent additional space above the garage. The apartment has a kitchenette, living/dining room, 2 bedrooms (1 double bed and 2 twin beds) and 1 bathroom. This space can be rented for an additional sum and increases the total number of guests to 10 people. We do not rent this apartment separately, only as additional space for house guests.

If the Captain’s Quarters sounds like the right fit for you, we are happy to help. A vacation on Mount Desert Island is just what the doctor ordered. Come to relax, unwind and rejuvenate!
