What a lovely place to stay! It was our first time in Bar Harbor and the Bass Cottage Inn was the perfect choice. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms nicely appointed, and the food was delicious! We would not think twice about staying here again or recommending it to others!

We have been coming to Bar Harbor for years, but when we discovered the Bass Cottage Inn in 2009, we knew no other B&B would ever compare. Our orginal plan was to stay for 4 nights at the Inn, but they were booked up - so we did stay at another B&B for our first 2 nights and then gladly... More

First time in Bar Harbor and Bass Cottage Inn and both took our breath away. Gorgeous inn with welcoming staff, very tasteful decor, delicious food. We stayed in room 7 and it's a little small, especially the doorway. I'm 6' 4 and had to duck quite a bit to enter the room but other than that, it was a cozy... More

Thanks to these visitors from PA for staying with us and for taking the time to write their review. We're glad they found the Bass Cottage Inn friendly, welcoming and comfortable. The room they selected is one of our smaller rooms, but we're pleased they found it cozy. We have a range of tasteful, luxurious guest rooms in a variety... More

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Bass Cottage Inn. The location was fabulous, very close to everything but extremely quiet. We were greeted at the door with a smile and she immediately directed us to a great place to grab lunch. The inn was beautifully decorated and each room was very clean & spacious. We loved the...

Many thanks to these guests for their business and their kind, helpful review. We enjoy welcoming guests to our beautiful inn and beautiful island...which is why we smile a lot! The entire staff embraces the mantra "friendly, clean and complete." Friendly and clean are obvious. "Complete" refers to meeting YOUR expectations. EVERYTHING you'd expect -- and MORE -- needs be...

We recently stayed at Bass Cottage Inn in Bar Harbor for the first time. It exceeded all of our expectations and more. The Inn is perfectly located within easy walking distance to restaurants, the harbor, and the shops. It worked out great over the 4th of July holiday. We were able to walk to the parade and see the fireworks... More

It's hard not to rave about this B&B, even though it was our first B&B experience. The location is just one block from the main street in downtown Bar Harbor, the public spaces and our room were all very nicely decorated and welcoming, and Terri's cooking (and her daily homemade cookies!!!!) is an absolute treat every morning! They even have... More

One of the things we love is "converting" folks who usually stay at chain hotels into B&B guests. The image of a B&B - granny decorating, group seating at breakfast, lots of knick-knacks - is slowiy changing. We took a modern yet classic approach when we purchased the Bass Cottage Inn in 2003. Great guest rooms, great food, attention to... More

We stayed here for my wife's 50th birthday and loved every minute - we only wish we hadn't been so busy enjoying the rest of Mt.

We're happy that these guests were happy with their stay at the Bass Cottage Inn, Bar Harbor. When guests have to depart early and miss our amazing breakfasts we are happy to back them a breakfast 'to-go' bag. It's just one of the things we do to commit to guest satisfaction. Thanks again for staying with us. More

Bass Cottage Inn is beautifully renovated and maintained! The owners are fantastic as is the breakfast and other perks. We were looking for somewhere to stay and be within walking distance of most of Bar Harbor, yet quickly get to lots of spots in Acadia National Park. This was our first trip and we picked a great spot!! The photos... More
