This was our 4th time at the Bass Cottage Inn. It is our favorite place to be! I can't say enough about how great it is. The Inn itself is so beautifully restored and everything about it is ALWAYS impeccable. The innkeepers take great pride in their care and service. My husband and I have decided that the food is...

Bass Cottage is a beautiful, luxurious bed and breakfast. The innkeepers, Terry and Jeff, were so accommodating and knowledgable. The rooms were so clean, cozy, lovely, and, comfortable. The bedding is gorgeous. We felt right at home. The breakfast provides 3 choices daily plus home baked muffins or coffee cake. Every meal was delicious. There is always soda, water, iced... More

These lovely guests from PA settled in for a marvelous holiday in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We're so pleased they appreciated the service and all the little details that matter to guests of the Bass Cottage Inn. Our bed linens come chiefly from Cuddledown of Maine and Company C. We love both providers. More

The Bass Cottage Inn is like no other in Bar Harbor. The rooms are gorgeous, clean, modern, yet classical. The attention to detail is unbelievable. The Inn is set back from the main road which makes it quiet, but still a central location within walking distance of the main strip on Bar Harbor. The breakfasts are delicious, included in your...

The Bass Cottage is the nicest Inn/B&B we have ever stayed at. The owners are wonderful and the staff is terrific. We stayed in room 2 for 5 nights last week and loved every minute of it. Three choices for breakfast everyday. Four if you count the wonderful baked scones and muffins! The morning coffee was freshly brewed and thoroughly... More

Teri and Jeff continue to be the gold standard when it comes to B & B innkeepers. It's been two years since we've had the pleasure of staying at The Bass Cottage Inn and they continue to do it all - perfectly. We stayed in the Paprika guest room that was beautifully decorated in warm, welcoming shades that mirrored the... More

Over the years we've been honored to host the guest and his lovely wife when they are on book tours (he's a best-selling author and illustrator of children's books including the new book, "Bats in the Band"). Fortunately, we have maintained our standards over the years and look forward to their return in the future. Thank you for your continued... More

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place. We had a family issue come up and they were so understanding and let us out of the last two days of our reservation The breakfast were very tasty. Our room was very spacious and well laid out. The staff are so kind. Thanks again for a great stay

Thanks to this reviewer for his top rating and kind review. However, perhaps it's approaching senior citizen status, but we don't think you were our guest in August 2014 as indicated. We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Bar Harbor. More

Based on the many, many ultra-positive reviews on TripAdvisor, my wife and I just spent four nights at the Bass Cottage Inn, and we would say "ditto" to all. In addition, I'd note that Jeff and Terri were very helpful with hike suggestions. Finally, they're just the right amount of attentive - helping when wanted, and minding guests' privacy too.... More

We strongly recommend The Bass Cottage Inn. It is a fabulous place, run by very good innkeepers. Of all the inns we visited on our honeymoon, this was the clear standout. It's located between Main Street & the water - a great combination of being central while being out of the way. The Verbena room is a great space -... More

By far the most beautiful inn I have stayed in. Great location with easy walking to shops and restaurants. Gourmet, unique breakfast. The inn keepers and assistant inn keeper were very friendly and accomodating. Loved the evening wine and hors d'oeuvres. Would definitely stay again and recommend others to do the same. We stayed in the sesame room and enjoyed... More

We have stayed here a few times over recent years, and have been very satisfied each time. The service is friendly. The old home has just the perfect feel to it (although you will need to get your suitcases up these staircases as it is a historic property without elevators -- fine for us, but probably harder for seniors).

Thanks to this Bass Cottage Inn 'veteran' for remembering their last stay in October 2013 and sharing it with Tripadvisor users. While we are, indeed, an old home from 1885 the inn has been completely renovated, modernized and redecorated. So, if you're envisioning lots of dark wallpaper, lace and chintz you won't find it here. As mentioned, we do not... More
