house rental amenities

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.

activities and attractions in Bass Harbor Maine

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.

traveler reviews for this bass harbor house rental

Best View on Mt. Desert Island

Review submitted: October 25, 2011   Date of arrival: October 1, 2011

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: The bed actually is Queen sized.
