If I could give the Bass Cottage more than 5 stars I would. The Bass Cottage Inn has an excellent location in the Bar Harbor downtown. It is nestled behind the busy Main Street. The inn is beautiful and cozy. The Inn keepers and entire staff are friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. The rooms are clean and quiet.... More

This property is beautiful, very well located off the Main Street, the wine happy hour a lovely opportunity to meet other people, and the breakfast just great. The step away from perfection was linked to the fact that our room (Salt and pepper, which was a beautiful room) was 2 flights of stairs from the entrance and no one offered... More
