activities and attractions in Bass Harbor Maine

         Harbor Reach Farm is a 5 acre property of wooded waterfront. Andrew's Mom owns a similar vacant 5 acre wooded lot to the North. To our South is a 2/3 acre vacant lot that directly abuts hundreds of acres of Acadia National Park land and the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. Hence Harbor Reach Farm is very quiet, secluded and serene. Some guests rarely leave the property for their entire stay. They prefer relaxing on the beach, reading a book, watching boats and wildlife glide by, enjoying fantastic sunsets, etc.

        The Western side of Mount Desert Island is very accurately referred to as "The Quietside". When the First Family visited MDI two summers ago, the Obamas spent part of their visit here, touring the Lighthouse at the end of our road, hiking the nearby Ship Harbor Trail and dining at a waterfront restaurant in neighboring Southwest Harbor. Nearby are the Wonderland ocean trail and Seawall picnic area, all part of Acadia National Park.

        Bass Harbor has 3 restaurants with water views. Thurston's lobster pound on the Bernard side of Bass Harbor is a wholesale lobster dock that buys daily from local lobstermen. The Swan's Island Ferry and Little Island nature tourboat are a few miles away.

        Southwest Harbor a about a 10 minute drive, where one can find more waterfront restaurants and lobster docks. The Library is well-stocked. There is a medium size grocery store, as well as a gourmet food store, drugstore and 2 Banks. Fishing, sailing, boat and kayak rentals are available. A mailboat takes passengers out to the Cranberry Isles several times a day. The picturesque Causeway Club 9 hole golf course welcomes all golfers.

        Bar Harbor and the major sections of Acadia National Park are about a 30 minute drive. Most of the Park can be visited via the free Island Explorer bus system. There is a bus stop close to Harbor Reach Farm. Acadia National Park is the second most visited National Park in the U.S.

Review submitted: August 5, 2007   Date of arrival: August 1, 2007

A great place to stay for peace,quiet beautiful harbor views and a secluded rocky beach. So relaxing! A short drive to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor, but a quiet restful place to return to at the end of the day. Beautiful sunsets and great lobster dining nearby.

Fantastic place on the quiet side of the island

Review submitted: September 2, 2013   Date of arrival: August 10, 2013

Better than expect place, very clean. This rental has fantastic views, with unlimited peace and quiet. We loved the views, the sounds of the harbor and the close proximity to all that MDI has to offer. Our hosts were absolutely the best. We were offered bikes, but we brought our own, the deck was not attached to the apartment, but that was no big deal. We cant wait to return. Took our bag chairs down to the shore every evening to watch the sun set, it was wonderful. Thanks Dianne and Andy, we enjoyed the stay.

A Wonderful Location and Fantastic Getaway

Review submitted: August 27, 2013   Date of arrival: August 17, 2013

This was the perfect location to get away from the crowds and enjoy a quiet week in beautiful Bass Harbor. Diane and Andrew were inviting and welcoming with great information and help. We were able to enjoy the quiet and beautiful sunsets and hear the ocean waves roll in at night. I would definitely recommend this retreat to anyone looking to stay away from the crowds.
