We returned yesterday from our first trip to Maine. Our first stop was at the Bass Cottage Inn in Bar Harbor on October 14th and 15th. I selected the Inn from reviews and it surpassed all our expectations. Terry and Jeff were warm and welcoming as well as very knowledgeable about the area. The inn itself is beautiful-- the room...

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

We have been the second time in Bar Harbour, but this was the place to stay. The Bass Cottage Inn is centrally located close to the Harbour and in walking distance to many nice restaurants and shops. Our room (Lavendar) was kept in white and blue and although it was small, we enjoyed our stay very much. The owners are... More

Many thanks to these visitors from Switzerland for visiting us in Bar Harbor, enjoying Acadia National Park and relaxing at the Bass Cottage Inn. We're glad they enjoyed all the amenities we provide, including the Lavender Room. Other travelers should note that we do have much larger rooms should they wish more space during your stay. Thank you for a... More

We stayed at the Bass Cottage Inn in October and very much enjoyed wine hour both in the front sitting room and one of the back rooms where we appreciated the ambiance provided by the fireplaces and inviting sofas. We stayed in two different rooms due to late booking. The Thyme room was wonderful with plenty of space and two... More

On this trip we were staying in lots of inns and hotels and B&B so before posting any review I thought it best to wait until the end of our trip so we could compare. Before arriving at this pretty place I was sure it would be a five but it just didn’t quite work for us. The location in... More

We stayed for three nights at the Bass Cottage Inn and loved it. Jeff and Terri (the innkeepers) and especially Susan were very friendly, cordially and welcoming. Susan made recommendations and reservations for restaurants and advised on different hikes. Breakfast was delicious and every evening after 6PM there was a complimentary "Wine O'Clock" - a delicious snack with wine. We... More

AMAZING. From the scrumptious breakfasts to the location right in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, Jeff and Terri the Innkeepers have outdone themselves again and again. We had to come back to the Bass Cottage for our 5th wedding anniversary --- and the Inn is even better than we imagined from our honeymoon. Each of the rooms have a... More

We enjoy "polishing the apple" each season to tweak decor and improve the guest experience. It's gratifying when discerning guests notice and appreciate the details.

The thing you're most likely to feel at Bass Cottage Inn is "at home." At least that's how we felt, although I have to say Bass Cottage Inn is larger and more gracious and better decorated and appointed than our own home. Also the breakfasts are more delicious and considerably more attractively presented than ours. In fact, we're pretty well... More

Thanks for this outstanding review! While the Bass Cottage Inn offers luxurious decor and gourmet breakfasts, we're happy that folks feel comfortable and at home like this nice couple from St. Croix USVI. While the Caribbean is richly beautiful we're sure they found being on the coast of down east Maine a fabulously different experience. Thanks again for your gracious... More

Wow! Had a wonderful time in this beautiful B&B and found the owners and staff to be friendly and helpful. We stayed in the smallest room in the Inn, Room 7, and it was delightful. It had ambient lighting hidden in the tray ceiling which gave such a pretty glow to the room. The decor was beautiful and the bathroom... More
