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. Desert Island to so that we could have spent more time just relaxing at the Inn! Terri and Jeff are excellen hosts and take an active interest in all their guests. They are very... More

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

Thanks to these nice folks for sharing their experience at the Bass Cottage Inn. Our location is one of our best assets - on a quiet lane but walking distance to everything you need. Thanks also for the shout-out on our new website. All the work was well worth it given all the guest comments. Come back and see us... More

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor, and the owners and staff at this terrific B&B made us feel right at home. The Inn itself is a recently renovated "cottage" with beautiful common spaces, a pantry with water, coffee, tea and homemade snacks, and comfortable rooms. The location couldn't be better, on a quiet side road but just a... More

My newly husband and I stayed here for a mini honeymoon as recommended by a friend. Light and beautiful room - we stayed in #9 the salt and pepper room - it was private and quaint - breakfast each morning was top notch and meeting Terri and Jeff the owners during breakfast made the stay even better. Everyone congratulated us... More

Bass Cottage Inn was one of the best places we've ever stayed. The location is perfect - a block walk to Bar Harbor's main street or the waterfront. Every detail was attended to including the fine decor with many modern influences amongst fine antiques. Breakfast was an outstanding work of art each day and the guest pantry had a great... More

This B&B has a fantastic location (right off main street just steps from the water). While you don't get much interaction with the owners, when you de see them in the morning, they are both helpful, pleasant and knowledgable. Terri is an absolute sweetheart not to mention an amazing chef. The breakfasts, and I'm not big on breakfast, were scrumptious... More

Many thanks to these nice folks from Florida for choosing the Bass Cottage Inn for their holiday. We're especially glad that they appreciated our breakfasts and unparalleled location. We do note that they had a 'slight negative' with regard to our use of the A/C. The weather during their stay in early June was quite cool and damp - in... More

We have been to Bar Harbor many times and stayed in several B&B's, but the Bass Cottage Inn is definitely the most charming and inviting of all. The staff is so welcoming and attentive, the breakfasts are amazing and the rooms are lovely and immaculate. There is always some fresh baked goody or fruit and drinks available and at 6:00... More

Many thanks to these guests from southern Maine for staying with us and taking the time to comment on their wonderful stay at the Bass Cottage Inn. We do get guests from literally all over the world but we especially love to see fellow Mainers enjoy their own state. Thanks again and hope to see you soon. More

Charming, Immaculate, Lovely, Cozy - Perfect. I can't find enough positive adjectives to describe this inn. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with such friendliness and professionalism, we were already impressed. We were given a tour of the grounds and a brief history of the town and the inn itself. I loved the attention to detail the... More

While it's not exactly our mission to set new standards for other B&Bs to meet, we do strive to deliver on our mission: friendly, helpful, clean and complete - meeting or exceeding every expectation. In our over 11 years as hands-on innkeepers we have learned through experience that details matter. Inn guests are discerning. They are looking for the 'exceptional'... More
