Bass Harbor cottage description

Enjoy boating activity and fabulous sunsets from this idyllic coastal cottage situated in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors. Feel like lobster tonight? Walk to the dealer down the road and buy them fresh off the boat. A large screened porch graces the front of the cottage and provides 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, a living room with harbor views, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a second bedroom with two single beds, and another room with futon.

Walk to Bass Harbor Lighthouse or take a short drive to parking for either the Ship Harbor or the Wonderland trails and take a hike along the shore. Use our hiking guides to find just the right trails in Acadia National Park or the maps of Acadia to find just the right bike loop. Like to kayak? Rentals are available nearby for exploring either lakes, ponds, or the ocean inlets.
Weekly rental with arrival and departure on Saturday

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: We hope to retire within the next few years and 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 the area offers is appealing. We have a Golden Retriever, Gwen, who is a rescue dog. She loves the walk to the Lighthouse.

                      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 5 miles away and offers shopping and nice places to eat.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The smell of the salt air is a special early morning treat and the sight and sound 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 just down 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 vist to Bass Harbor without a short walk to CH Rich to pick up a few lobsters for supper. (They sell fresh crabmeat,too). 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.
