Owner info

About the owner: I grew up and still live on Mount Desert Island. I own Gordius Garage, lobster fish (that's my boat you might see it in the harbor when you stay at Captain's Quarters), ice race in the winter months, and enjoy Nascar.

Why the Owner Chose Bass Harbor:
This property sits right on the shore of Bass Harbor where I lobster fish and race in the Bass Harbor Lobster Boat Races. It over looks the harbor and has constantly changing scenery based on the tide! Makes it a unique place to stay with ever changing views and delights. You haven't experienced Maine until you have a fresh cooked lobster sitting on the deck with views that are stunning in every direction. Sunrise and sunset offer quiet times for relaxing. This is the 'Quietside' of Mount Desert Island away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor but close enough to enjoy Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor with an easy drive!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor with stunning views of Bass Harbor. Right on the shore with un-obscured views of the ocean and this working harbor!
