We stayed here for a long anniversary weekend. I can't say this is the best place in Bar Harbor because I haven't stayed anywhere else. But I can't imagine anything else being better. In a high-end town with several high-end choices, you won't make a mistake staying here. The location is central, but a block off the main drag which... More

Bass Cottage Inn is a great Bed and Breakfast destination. Terri and Jeffery are awesome hosts. Breakfast was amazing every morning. The staff is great and very helpful. The facilities are beautiful, clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here and I look forward to coming back soon.

My wife and I stayed for four nights at the end of August and as the title says it was wonderful, Jeff and Terri along with the rest of the staff were charming hosts. Our bedroom was Sesame (Room 10) and although up four flights of ornate stairs it was well worth the effort, spotlessly clean and with our own... More

We stayed for six nights. Our room was cozy and comfortable. The location is perfect. The breakfast is so amazing. The choices are perfect for all palates and you can make dietary requests before you arrive. If possible your needs are met deliciously. The owners and staff could not be more accommodating. Feel free to play the piano which entertains... More

Wonderful visit to Bass Cottage Inn. Room was especially clean and service was great as well. We liked that this was a large Inn, so plenty of room if you wanted to enjoy by yourself. Our stay at Bass Cottage Inn made visiting New England a great experience in Bar Harbor!

We're glad you appreciated the spaciousness of the rooms and common areas, as did we when shopping for an inn to buy a dozen years ago.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights is July and absolutely love it. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The inn keepers could not have been more friendly. The house it's self is lovely. Beautiful sitting rooms and library. There were drinks and snacks available whenever we wanted and wine served on the porch each evening....Nice!... More

After reading all the excellent ratings on TripAdvisor, my wife and I had high expectations for our 4 night stay in Bar Harbor. Jeff, Terri and staff exceeded them! First, the Inn is in a great location in Bar Harbor, a walk to virtually anything in town. Yet the location is quiet and relaxing. The property has been well maintained... More
