After staying many times in the crazy busy Bar Harbor area we decided to stay on the "quiet" side of the island. This house and the location were absolutely the right choice. Easy to find, right on the harbor, the house was immaculate and perfect for two couples. I was afraid it was going to be on the small side but the layout of the house made it perfect. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need to cook and eat in. (Even a fully stocked Keurig coffee machine). If cooking in is not your style there are plenty of restaurants in the immediate area. We also REALLY enjoyed exploring Southwest Harbor (ten minutes away). To sum it up when we go back to Mt Desert Island this will be the place we stay!
PS Ken, the owner is amazing to work with!!!
We recently stayed here during our first trip to Mount Desert Island. There were 4 of us - my husband and I along with our 2 kids. The house was very nice, clean and well-maintained. We had a wonderful view of the sunset. Every afternoon, either after biking or hiking the trails in Acadia, or walking around in Bar Harbor, it was always nice to come back to the house and just lounge around in the living room or sit out on the deck and watch the sun go down. The kitchen is well-equipped and we were able to use the washer and dryer. The owner, Ken, was very good in responding to whatever questions we posed to him. All in all, we had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back.
We had a wonderful stay here. The property is well maintained, has everything needed for a relaxing vacation, and has wonderful sunset views as well. It is far enough away from Bar Harbor and Acadia to provide a quiet, relaxing experience but close enough to get to these places easily when we wanted. The owner was helpful when we had questions prior to our visit. In a word, the place was fantastic! We'd definitely stay there again.
We arrived in Bass Harbor to find a small, comfortable and very clean cottage awaiting. Perfect for a couple or small family with not only all necessary appurtenances, but also a lovely view of the harbor. Although the beds were comfortable, we were content to fall asleep in the living room while gazing across the water. Although we've vacationed in Acadia on and off for over thirty years, this is the first time we were so satisfied that we never bothered to venture off the Quiet Side into Bar Harbor. Indeed, we didn't want to leave at all. Two Restaurants, The Seaside Catch and Mainly Delights are only a five minute walk from the cottage, and across the harbor one can almost always find a table at Thurston's. If you're bringing a dog, or as in our case three, the grounds are more than sufficient and there is a grassy dog kennel in the back. We intend to return every year until retirement, at which time we hope to settle in the area.
We first rented this house several years ago, and were delighted with the wonderful view of Bass Harbor. The house is clean, well maintained, and has all of the amenities, including a good kitchen, to make our stay comfortable and convenient. Every year the owner makes updates and improvements. After a few visits, we stopped looking for any other place to stay. We will go back again, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone else.
Nowhere else could you find a place to simply be....to relax and enjoy Maine....to watch the harbor change, sometimes from one minute to the next....the fog, the bright sun as the boats pull out, the walk up to the ferry landing, or those sunsets....the ones that countless people pull off the road and take their tripods out to catch just a bit of one to take home with them....walking to dinner, the lighthouse, the amazing accessibility to lakes, Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain,....there is so much...truly a treat....in such a simply comfortable home away from home....a very special place. This was year five for us....we will be back...thank you for the opportunity....
