We are the other couple that stayed at Bass Cottage Inn with the previous reviewer, and we heartily second all of his comments! We stayed in the Salt and Pepper room which rivals any major city hotel room with its appointment, decor and amenities, but also with the cozy, warm feeling that one would expect at a B & B.... More

The Bass Cottage Inn is beautiful! The rooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Breakfast each day was fantastic and the breakfast room is so comfortable and bright...a perfect way to start each day. A member of our party had a food allergy and Terri was so accommodating adjusting the breakfast menu each day . The Inn is only a... More

This reviewer was part of a group of two couples traveling together - a trend we heartily endorse! We're glad they enjoyed our gourmet breakfasts, wine hour and snacks. We are happy to accommodate any food allergy - especially when given some advance notice. Hope to see both couples back at the Bass Cottage Inn soon! More

We stayed here at the Bass Cottage Inn for three nights in July 2014. The hosts were amazing, breakfast delicious and our room was just right. We stayed in Sage (Room 6) and it met all our needs. And, the location is top notch -- just steps away from the shops and restaurants, and a quick walk down to the... More

Thanks to these folks from Dallas for their excellent review of the Bass Cottage Inn. We enjoyed meeting them and providing a great, comfortable home base for exploring Acadia National Park. The Inn is a restored home from 1885. One period feature we elected to retain during the course of our $1M renovation in 2003 were the in-room sinks in... More

The other glowing reviews of the Bass Cottage Inn are more than deserved. So, suffice to say that they are the gold standard for B&Bs at any price range. Rooms are clean, bright, and beautifully maintained. The owners are genuinely convivial and always helpful. The breakfast alone is worth the stay. And it's walking distance to anywhere in Bar Harbor.... More

This was our third trip to Maine and our third stay at Bass Cottage Inn. On this trip, we were joined by our daughter and son-in-law. As with the prior two visits, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. As has been often mentioned, the Inn serves as a great "base of operations" for visiting Acadia and especially the town of... More

Thanks to this guest for sharing their appreciation for our great location - in the center of Bar Harbor near the water front, but on a quiet lane with little traffic. It is quiet and restful but convenient to all the shops, restaurants and waterfront activities here in Bar Harbor. We hope to see them again the next time they... More

We really loved our stay here. The room was beautiful and comfortable and so clean. The breakfast was gourmet quality. A pantry with drinks and a baked good, and wine in the evening were also nice treats. The Inn is a conveniently located right near town but one block off the noise and crowds. We will be back soon I... More

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
