What a great place to stay away from the summer crowds at Bar Harbor but only a short ride to Acadia and all it has to offer. The Pine Cottage was roomy enough for 3 adults and had everything we needed including kitchen supplies, WiFi, great scenery overlooking the water, a place to launch our canoe and comfy beds after...

This is a more modest priced place on Mount Desert Island and provide basic room, with a comfortable bed and functional bathroom. Some updating and renewing may be due, but will change the pricing point. Clean and functional enough to return, but not a easy place to recommend to the less adventurous.

I was a bit concerned because the lady on the phone pointed out that she, the owner, was living in the main house with us. We did have our own entrance and balcony. The room was very nice and roomy. We had our privacy and enjoyed our quiet. Bass Harbor is a relaxing village with several excellent restaurants within a... More

We took a 10 day tour of various locales in Maine, from Portland to Lubec, and our 3 nights in the rustic and comfortable Pine Cottage were our favorite. Connie graciously welcomed us and provided all we needed to get oriented to the cottage and to the quiet side of Acadia. There is a very nice screened in porch with... More

We stayed in Room 1 of the carriage house which was cozy, quaint, and comfortable. Sitting on the porch offered a lovely view. Bass Harbor is off the beaten track & much quieter than Bar Harbor, which is what we were looking for. Although we didn't stay in a cottage, they are quite large, with a kitchenette and several bedrooms.... More

Where can I start with the Bass Harbor Cottages. The most positive thing I can say is the location is beautiful. We love Bass Harbor. We don't love the Bass Harbor Cottages. I booked a room 3 months in advance with my credit card. I hadn't heard back on email so I called about 4 weeks before the trip. They... More

Layout of cottage: The cottage was represented accurately on their website. It was clean (we didn't see any critters or bugs) and comfortable.

I stayed here for six nights with my family on a first time trip to Mount Desert Island. This is a great location with fine views from the 2bed/2 bath Boathouse cottage we rented. Easy to find and adequate parking. There is nothing much within walking distance but plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within a very short drive. Free... More

The two bedroom two bath cottage in the Boathouse overlooking the water was very comfortable and cozy. Connie was exceptionally friendly and helpful. This will be my first choice for my frequent business trips to Mt Desert Island. Just another thing to love about this beautiful part of New England.
