  • Autumn Beauty in Bass Harbor

    "We stayed at Ebb Tide this fall for a month and it wasn't long enough! The house is close to Acadia National Park with its natural beauty and activities.. It overlooks Bass Harbor with its 10 foot tides, yet it is secluded with tall pines, flowers, and rose bushes. The views form the privacy of our living room or outside Adirondack chairs was spectacular, especially at sunset. Our miniature poodle was well accepted by Rudy, the host dog. Shelley and Larry could not have been more thoughtful. Fresh flowers were in the house when we arrived and weekly thereafter. The kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is very comfortable and stylish. The house is open and airy with natural light. The second floor master bedroom has beautiful views of the harbor. The walkway from the parking area has a few stone steps downhill. Overall, we couldn't have picked a better spot, better weather, or better hosts than we experienced at Ebb Tide. We look forward to returning someday."

  • What a great retreat!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bass Terre! This house is in a beautiful spot - a private cove with amazing ocean vistas! The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers - a comfortable deck and only one distant neighbor. The house is over 100 years old but in great condition - bathrooms, appliances and cable TV all work just fine. The bedrooms and mattresses are good and with the silence and cool night breezes, we all slept like babies! The living/dining area is spacious and all 5 adults (of varying ages) were very comfortable there. If we get back to Maine and Bass Terre some day, we will definitely take our dogs - there's a huge garage attached to the house that works if they're wet or need to be confined while you're out and about. The owners provided an excellent list of restaurants and activities that we used daily to plan our outings. Acadia National Park is the highlight and we spent several days exploring different parts of the park - including the top of Cadillac Mountain, Loop Drive along the rocky shore, the popovers at Jordan Pond and several hikes around lakes. We found Bar Harbor to be a crowded tourist trap so we wandered through some of the smaller fishing village shops and restaurants. Southwest Harbor, Somesville and Northeast Harbor are all charming villages. We highly recommend seeing Asticou Gardens! But most of all, we enjoyed returning to Bass Terre in the evening and watching the sun set."

  • Fabulus Cottage on Quiet Penninsula

    "We chose this Blue Hill cottage due to proximity to MDI in the hope that it would be close enough to essential needs but maybe off the beaten path. It was all that. The cottage is close to Blue Hill but very very quiet and secluded. THe home itself is charming and everything you need for your stay is there. Kitchen was very well stocked - even a Lobster pot! Our only complaint was the electric heat did not work and it was quite cold overnight. We managed to warm up with a fire in the beautiful fireplace in the evening and as we were out and about during the day, we didn't mind. The location, amenities and condition of the cottage was perfect we would stay again without hesitation."

  • An amazing place to stay!

    "The title "Quiet, comfortable, affordable" says it all! A really great location not far from Ellsworth (for groceries) and Mount Desert Island, but completely away from the crowds, even when we went during peak season in August. I think we might have seen one other car drive down the road the house is on. The house was very comfortable, everything more than adequate for a vacation. For the price, not much more than a nicer hotel, it was a steal! A great place to unwind, which is just what we were looking for."
