This is a great inn. The location is very good, close to the main streets yet quitetly situated. Our room (Nutmeg) was very nice and cozy. The breafast was outstanding. There a choice of sweet, savory or healthy and everything we tried was delicious. It was our second stay and we wont hesitate to come back.

This is a lovely, large converted historic home. The location is close to the shore path, harbor and restaurants. The style is a perfect mix of modern comfort and historic charm without being fussy at all. All staff and the inn keepers were low key, and helpful, and the breakfast and wine hour were a treat! In a crowded in... More

Innkeepers Jeff and Terry, as well as Susan in the afternoons/evenings, treat you as a pampered guest in their home! We loved our "top of the house" Sesame room with views of the bay from the bathroom and windows to the sky throughout. The breakfasts are delicious. Jeff and Terry even accommodated a To-Go breakfast on the morning of our... More

My husband and I spent four nights at the Bass Cottage Inn while on our honeymoon and it far exceeded our expectations. Even when we arrived late for check-in, someone was waiting up to let us in, show us around, and give us wine. The inn itself is the perfect blend of classy, traditional style (complete with a library) and... More

Upon arrival, we immediately felt welcome. The Inn is beyond words - restored and maintained with comfortable settings and historic décor. The Innkeepers truly passionate about the Inn and staff were so gracious and helpful. We toured the area on our own, but got great recommendations. The late afternoon snacks were superb, getting back to visit the staff seemed part... More

MY husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Bass Cottage Inn and were quite pleased. We were welcomed very graciously, given a tour of the house which is great, and our room which was large (Verbena) and very comfortable with lots of windows.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Sesame suite and highly recommend the inn. This was our 1st visit to Bar Harbor and everyone at the inn was extremely helpful. My wife especially enjoyed interacting with other guests every evening at 6pm when they served wine and hors d'oeuvres.

There isn't enough room for me to convey how wonderful this Inn, the innkeepers, and staff were on our recent visit. Their website doesn't even come close to showing how wonderful everything is at this inn. Our family of four adults reserved two rooms for five nights. The rooms were elegantly decorated with everything we could need. We felt welcome... More
