    We have stayed in Bar Harbor on four occasions, and Bass Cottage Inn was far superior. The Inn is elegant yet relaxing and comfortable. The keepers and staff are friendly and helpful. Our breakfast and service was excellent, and they gladly accommodated a GF diet....More

    The Inn is everything I had hoped it would be and more. The food is fantastic and the nightly wine event was a great way to unwind, relax, and get ready for a night out while meeting new people. I highly recommend a stay there!

    Great atmosphere. Very convenient location just off Main Street in Bar Harbor within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Great breakfast and amenities, including late afternoon wine and cheese served each day. Very pleasant and helpful staff. 5 minute drive to Acadia National Park.

    Bass Cottage was our 4th B&B on this trip, each very different from the others and Bass Cottage continuing the trend. Ideally located, tucked away from the main road, the inn was the most formal so far. It is beautifully appointed and outstandingly maintained, the...More
