Wonderful visit to Bass Cottage Inn. Room was especially clean and service was great as well. We liked that this was a large Inn, so plenty of room if you wanted to enjoy by yourself. Our stay at Bass Cottage Inn made visiting New England a great experience in Bar Harbor!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights is July and absolutely love it. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The inn keepers could not have been more friendly. The house it's self is lovely. Beautiful sitting rooms and library. There were drinks and snacks available whenever we wanted and wine served on the porch each evening....Nice!... More

After reading all the excellent ratings on TripAdvisor, my wife and I had high expectations for our 4 night stay in Bar Harbor. Jeff, Terri and staff exceeded them! First, the Inn is in a great location in Bar Harbor, a walk to virtually anything in town. Yet the location is quiet and relaxing. The property has been well maintained... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights after Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful visit. The inn was renovated recently, making it clean and classic, but maintaining its original elements like beautiful stained glass windows, cozy libraries, and a wonderful guest kitchen with snacks and beverages at all hours. The inn has a very convenient location to... More

We stayed for two nights in the first floor Cinnamon Room and it was wonderful. The Inn is beautiful and impeccable. Our room was very nice and very clean throughout. Breakfast starts at 8am and it is delicious. The inn owners are very pleasant. We loved our short stay in Bar Harbor and without question when we visit there again... More

When we arrived in Bar Harbor without reservations forty years ago on our honeymoon, we were referred to a "tourist room" for $15 a night at Bass Cottage. What an amazing transformation we found when we returned. The quaint charm and furnishings were retained. The enhancements the innkeepers have made make Bass Cottage nothing short of paradise. The great location,... More

It was wonderful to help these guests remember their honeymoon at the old Bass Cottage 40 years ago. Much has changed since we purchased and renovated the Bass Cottage Inn in 2003. And, it was fun to hear how things used to be. It was even more fun to hear how much these guests appreciated our special touches 40 years... More
