Property description

We call it our cottage but it's really a second home. Enjoy fabulous sunsets from this idyllic coastal cottage situated in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors. . A large screened porch faces west and graces the front of the cottage providing additional space with views of the inner harbor directly out to Blue Hill Bay. Inside you will find a master bedroom with bath and walk-in closet (the bed is queen size with a firm mattress), a living room with harbor views (Large TV with cable and DVD player, radio, and wireless internet access), a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a second bedroom with two single beds, and another room with futon that will comfortably sleep two youngsters. There are fans but a cottage on the ocean usually receives cool ocean breezes so are rarely needed. There is a well equipped kitchen and gas grill in the shed. If you like eating out, there are several nice places nearby. There is a lobster dealer just down the road (less than 1/4 mile). We like to fix our own. Pots for boiling lobster and steaming clams are in the cellar.
The cottage is elevated from the road in front and with landscaping it offers privacy. The front lawn is level.
Bass Harbor Lighthouse is an easy mile walk (one-way) or take a short drive to parking for either the Ship Harbor or the Wonderland trails to take a hike along the shore. Use our hiking guides to find just the right trails in Acadia National Park or just the right bike loops. Bike rentals are available four miles away in Southwest Harbor. Like to kayak? Rentals are available nearby for exploring either lakes, ponds, or the ocean inlets. Guided kayak trips can be arranged in Southwest Harbor. The Island Explorer shuttle stop is a two minute walk.
Weekly rental with arrival and departure on Saturday

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We live in Western Maine and in the process of retiring. We wanted a cottage on the salt water where we could spend part of the year. We looked along the Maine coast from Friendship to Gouldsboro for a place that we could enjoy. We are active outdoor folks and the hiking and biking opportunities that Mount Desert Island area offers is appealing. We have a Golden Retriever, Gwen, who is a rescue dog and a younger Golden named Sage. They love the walk to the Lighthouse the leisure walks at the Ship Harbor and Wonderland trails

Why Bass Harbor:
Mount Desert Island is home to Acadia National Park and Acadia is one of the most visited National Parks in the country. While visitors do flock to the area, Bass Harbor is located on the 'quiet side' of Mt Desert Island. While it's less visited, we are still only 25 minutes from most any location on the island. We are close to a fresh water lake with beach and numerous hiking trails that either go up small mountains or other trails that take us to the ocean. The village of Southwest Harbor is 4 miles away and offers shopping and nice places to eat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The smell of the salt air is a special early morning treat and the sights and sounds of the lobster boats leaving the harbor is unique. The ferry to Swan's Island (inhabited year round) leaves several times a day from the terminal across the road. We like to use the 'Ferry Window' to watch the ferry dock, load, and depart. Taking our own trip on the ferry to Swan's Island with bikes makes for a nice day, too, but some days we just like to stay home and read. It wouldn't be a visit to Bass Harbor without a short walk to CH Rich to pick up a few lobsters for supper. Our favorite time of the day is the evening. Watching the sun go down over Bass Harbor with all the boats safely moored for the night is really pretty.
