We took a 10 day tour of various locales in Maine, from Portland to Lubec, and our 3 nights in the rustic and comfortable Pine Cottage were our favorite. Connie graciously welcomed us and provided all we needed to get oriented to the cottage and to the quiet side of Acadia. There is a very nice screened in porch with... More

We stayed in Room 1 of the carriage house which was cozy, quaint, and comfortable. Sitting on the porch offered a lovely view. Bass Harbor is off the beaten track & much quieter than Bar Harbor, which is what we were looking for. Although we didn't stay in a cottage, they are quite large, with a kitchenette and several bedrooms.... More

Where can I start with the Bass Harbor Cottages. The most positive thing I can say is the location is beautiful. We love Bass Harbor. We don't love the Bass Harbor Cottages. I booked a room 3 months in advance with my credit card. I hadn't heard back on email so I called about 4 weeks before the trip. They... More

We recently stayed in the Pines cottage...2 Bedroom (2 twins in one, 1 double in the other) and it was perfect for our family of 4. Layout of cottage: The cottage was represented accurately on their website. It was clean (we didn't see any critters or bugs) and comfortable. Coming from a large home with multiple baths, modern appliances, we... More

I stayed here for six nights with my family on a first time trip to Mount Desert Island. This is a great location with fine views from the 2bed/2 bath Boathouse cottage we rented. Easy to find and adequate parking. There is nothing much within walking distance but plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within a very short drive. Free... More

The two bedroom two bath cottage in the Boathouse overlooking the water was very comfortable and cozy. Connie was exceptionally friendly and helpful. This will be my first choice for my frequent business trips to Mt Desert Island. Just another thing to love about this beautiful part of New England.

I recently stayed at the Bass Harbor Cottages with my girlfriend, and we really enjoyed our stay. Connie, the inn keeper, was very friendly and easy to work with. It was a bit inconvenient to reserve the room, because we had to send a check in the mail and couldn't simply use a credit card to reserve online. I also... More

We booked a room at the inn for two nights on Labor Day weekend. My husband had explained to the innkeeper that we would be on the island to attend a wedding. We arrived to check in at 4:00 with just enough time to dress for the rehearsal dinner at 5:00. Unfortunately the innkeeper greeted us with "didn't you get... More

We stayed at the Boat House Cottage loft. It's an apartment on the 3rd (top) floor overlooking the Bass Harbor bay. All apartment windows face the water (and there is a balcony as well) looking West so sunsets and sunny afternoons were very pleasant to watch or enjoy with a book. One morning we saw a bald eagle on the... More
