Lamoine – Your Place on the Ocean
SeaCat’s Rest Oceanside Suite
Looking for Bar Harbor area lodging? You’ve come to the right place! Our little slice of heaven is too beautiful not to share. We are not in the busy town of Bar Harbor but offer many reasons to escape to the tranquility of the Lamoine shore, 21 miles away. Our SeaCat’s Rest oceanside suite is not for everyone; it is not within walking distance of shopping or restaurants, we do not have a swimming pool and it is not totally isolated–we live on the property in an adjoining suite, and finally, it is not in a manicured, weed-free landscape. It is an affordable, family friendly, spacious, quiet ocean edge retreat, removed from the bustle of Acadia but close enough for a spontaneous visit. If you are looking for affordable luxury and attention to detail, a cross between a cramped hotel and an expensive separate house, a full cook’s kitchen and your own uncluttered view of and access to the North Atlantic, we are your destination on the Maine coast. Check out more photos here, see our brochure here or read what guests have to say here and here.
SeaCat’s Rest has 900 square feet of space, about three times the average hotel room. [Need a larger place? Click here.] And that’s not counting the full laundry and storage area. I’m proud of the kitchen; I built the cabinets out of local birch. The counters are black granite from Quebec. The fridge and other appliances are nearly new, full sized and probably not that different from what you have at home. The two bedrooms have queen beds and full closets, the bathroom is spacious and the entertainment center has cable TV, a VCR and DVD player. We also have wireless broadband and a fire-view woodstove. Our bookshelf is filled with books and games for the whole family. Linens are provided. We have some staple foods like spices, sugar and flour.
As of March 1, 2011, Seacat’s Rest Oceanside Suite is recognized by the State of Maine Department of Environmental Protection as an Environmental Leader in Hospitality, scoring 174 points, 74 more than is needed to qualify. Read more about how we qualify here.
Outside you will enjoy your own ocean side of the house. Chaise lounges, a gas grill, picnic table, fire pit and your own stairway to the shore await you. Don’t expect a large lawn, we preserve the wild blueberries, bunchberries and serviceberries, towering pines and sheltering oaks. We limit the folks in the house to 4, but more kids are OK. We have an extra single air bed. We have parking for two cars.
For short stays any time of the year, $150/night with a two night minimum. For stays of four to six nights, $130 per night any time of the year.
