Our stay at the Bass Cottage Inn was a completely wonderful experience. The Inn is warm and inviting, and the staff is outstanding in their attentiveness, attention to detail, and friendliness. The accommodations and amenities exceeded our expectations - from the spacious room including the spa-like bath and luxuriously comfortable bed to the delicious fresh baked afternoon treats and exceptional...

It would be difficult to find any way to improve upon the Bass Cottage Inn. The words outstanding and superb barely seem sufficient in a world where average or mundane are acceptable. It's location, though in the center of town, is insulated from the throng. The choice of food and expert preparation are superlative, I should know, I'm a fine... More

We stayed at the inn for the first four nights of our honeymoon. This was the first stay in a bed & breakfast for my wife and I, and after staying at another highly recommended B&B in another city later in our trip, we know that we have been spoiled by the Bass Cottage for all other B&B's now. We... More

My husband and I took our honeymoon vacation to coastal Maine and our first stop was the Bass Cottage Inn. We found the inn online and were in love with their rooms from the start- the pictures hardly do it justice on the web- and that's saying something, because they have a great website! We enjoyed 2 nights in Room... More

We went to Bass Cottage in Bar Harbor for the third and final stop on our honeymoon. When we got to Bar Harbor, the town was packed with people from a cruise ship. To our pleasant surprise, Bass Cottage was a block off the main strip, therefore quite insulated from the tourists on Main Street. The service was excellent throughout... More

As soon as we entered the lobby, we knew this was a perfect choice. The atmosphere is calm and lovely with elegant furniishings and appointments, but no clutter anywhere. The room was superb, clean and comfy with fireplace looking exactly as shown on the web. The food was excellent and the service was totally focused on our comforts and needs.... More

The Bass Cottage was the best Inn where we have ever stayed. The rooms and the common areas were clean (it is so rare!). The staff was very professinal. Everything at The Bass Cottage is sophisticated and refined. Absolutely outstanding.

Our stay at the Bass Cottage Inn was superb!! Its a beautiful B&B with a friendly and courteous staff. What I liked most were the breakfasts (a different choice each day that was delicious), the open pantry, the luxurious bedding, the turn down service and dimming of the lights (a romantic touch), the evening hors deurves (this was a great...

During the many years my husband and I have traveled extensively in both Europe and North America, we have never experienced the quality of any B&B as we did at the Bass Cottage Inn in Bar Harbour, Maine. From the moment we walked into the Inn, we knew it was going to be a 5-star experience, and in no way... More

We found The Bass Cottage Inn to be the best place to stay in Bar Harbor for the following reasons: 1. Cleanliness - the place is immaculate. 2. Superb staff - everyone who worked at the Inn did an excellent job, whether it was serving breakfast, providing activity and restaurant recommendations, or just keeping the atmoshphere pleasant with music, lighting,...
