Bass harbour is on the more quiet, but also very beautiful side of Acadia National Park. Driving to the main attractions in the park takes about 20-30 minutes. The Inn is nothing fancy, but absolutely enough to satisfy our needs (clean and quiet). Barbara, the host, is very nice with great and helpful recommendations for hikes, restaurants,... The breakfast is... More

Barbara is exceptional. For starters, she came out of her house to greet us by name as we pulled into the bed and breakfast after a long drive from Boston. She provided us with maps and guidebooks so my boyfriend and I would be set to take on Acadia the next day. Every morning started with home-made breakfast in Barbara's... More

My husband has been going to the Bass Harbor Inn for about five years now each Fall for hiking. The inn is charming and has views of the harbor. Barbara is a wonderful host who knows the area well with good trail recommendations and locations for dinner choices. The room was comfortable with a good bed and a working fireplace.... More

Bass Harbor Inn is the only place we stay for our yearly visits to MDI, eight times so far. If you want a standard hotel so you can feel like you are anywhere else in the US, I suppose you'd prefer one of the big hotels in Bar Harbor. We had to do that the one time we came in... More

We were only here for 2 nights, but we liked it a lot. Barbara was very nice, she recommended some beautiful walking trails and sites to be seen. The room was comfortable with a good bed and a great view of the lake. The breakfast with homemade breads was tasty. We definitely recommend this place to anyone who is visiting... More

This B and B is reasonably priced for this area. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a water view. The hosts were friendly and readily available if you needed something but other wise you were left alone. Breakfast was basic but fine and very informal. It consisted of fresh breads, cereal, blueberries,and good coffee. The inn does... More

First, when reading others reviews, take stock of where the inn is, and what it is. This ain't the Hilton so don't expect it to be. Go to Bar Harbor, try one of the hotels, and compare the VALUE for your $$$$ My new wife and I were on our honeymoon. We are in our 50's and wanted to explore... More

Poor upkeep and in need of updating and basic maintainance. Window coverings for privacy, and adult-size bath towels are basics missing from this inn. Easy walk to ferry and harbor. Quiet location. Disappointed and I won't be returning.

The Inn is lovely - our room was very comfortable and was decorated simply and tastefully. Breakfast was ample. The proprietors were very friendly and personal. Very nicely set on the quiet side of the Island, which suited us just fine.

Bass Harbor is a brilliant option if you want to get away from the maddening crowd. We were there over a weekend in September and huge cruise ships pulled into Bar Harbor making it rather touristy and overrun – were only too pleased to retreat to the quiet side of the island which is only a 30 minute drive from...
