Best View on Mt. Desert Island

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this lovely rental property. As there were only two of us, we only used the upstairs unit. The little house was beyond our expectations. The view was incredible. 180 degree view of a working lobster harbor. The deck had a perfect view of the sunsets, which were spectacular. The kitchen had everything you could possily want to cook up the local fish, farm veggies and cheese of the local area. The location was on the quiet side of the island, but that was fine with us. Bar Harbor is a short drive to the other side. The unit was very clean and well appointed. The fireplace was wonderful when the temperatures dipped at night. There is a lobster pound right across the harbor in Bernard. You can buy live lobster there and bring it home, or have dinner. A new restaurant called the Lobster Katch is within walking distance. There is a gas station nearby, small grocery just up the road, and a colorful local bar called Nemos very close by. The owners were very friendly and accomodating and also managed the tour boat from the dock. The tour was fantastic. I highly recommend it. Matter of fact, I would recommend this rental to just about anyone. There were only two minor things that were inconvenient. There was no washer or dryer, but doing our laundry in Southwest Harbor just up the road wasn't bad at all. The other was the size of the upstairs bed. It was a double and we are used to a king size, so we were pretty cozy.

Location

Activity and Interests

Although we're only thirty minutes from Bar Harbor, we are essentially

very different. Bass Harbor is a small fishing village and working

harbor on the southern end of Mount Desert Island. We're called "The

quiet side of the Island."

There's plenty to do here: The Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse,

Wonderland and Ship Harbor (part of Acadia National Park) are only a

mile or two away. At Little Island Marine, the small boatyard which

shares the peninsula with the house, the Island Cruise makes nature

trips and lunch cruises daily. Restaurants are within easy walking

distance.

Notes:

  • Both apartments have central heat for the off season, excellent ventilation in summer (electric fan in case you want it)and all the firewood you'd like. Also: cable TV, phone, wifi, all linens (bed, bath, and kitchen), well-equipped kitchen. Immaculately clean, lovely decor. Outdoors: deck furniture and grill; a rowboat is at the dock for your pleasure anytime. No smoking, no pets. Views are beautiful. Bass Harbor has been photographed for the cover of a National Geographic book about New England, and has been the site of several movies. The lobster fishing boats are always interesting, and if you love wildlife, we've watched eagles soar past the deck (they frequent the harbor), counted twelve herons in the low tide one September day, and watched loons, ducks, terns and gulls work the harbor.
