My wife and I recently visited Bar Harbor for a relaxing vacation and a sort of "babymoon" since she is 6 months pregnant. We landed on the Bass Cottage Inn because of other reviews, and we thought it would have a good location in Bar Harbor. We couldn't be happier with our time there! The Inn is right off of... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bass Cottage Inn over the Memorial Day weekend and could not have been happier with our experience.

Truly excellent service and a great price for it all. Wish we stayed here for entire week (also stayed at Harborsisde). We will be coming back here for sure. Great time to come is before Memorial Day. Room 10 is at the top of the house and the most private.

Wife booked us at the Bass Cottage Inn. I didn't realize Bass Harbor was a tourist town. I just wanted to go as far north as I could, on the east coast. Ended up in Bass Harbor.

My husband and I stayed at the Bass Cottage Inn in mid October to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. We had a lovely stay at the Inn and would highly recommend it. It is perfectly situated in Bar Harbor - close to restaurants and shops and is only a 10-15 minute drive from Acadia National Park. The Inn is... More

Once my (now) wife and I decided to head to Bar Harbor for our honeymoon in October, the Bass Cottage Inn very quickly caught our eyes. After seeing many positive reviews, we went ahead and booked a room to make sure we got a spot. In short, we were definitely not disappointed! The assistant innkeeper, Susan, called to make sure...

We stayed at Bass Cottage Inn for three nights in October. Location of the inn is perfect -- close to the town and restaurants and easy access to Acadia National Park. The inn has been impeccably restored and furnished without the "frou frou" that is often found in a B&B. We stayed in Room #10 (Salt and Pepper), which was... More

It was so nice to read this recent review from these guests from North Carolina. We see that they enjoyed our great location (near the harbor, just off Main Street but on a quiet lane) and our lack of "frou frou" found in many other B&Bs. As with our breakfasts, we always strive for the "out of the ordinary" or... More
