"We loved this well-maintained house. It was perfect for 2 families made up of 4 parents and six "kids" aged 25, 23, 21, 21, 18, and 15! The dining room table was long enough to fit all 10 of us for meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle multiple cooks. The house was well stocked with any dishes or pans we needed and had every spice we wanted. The linens were great and the linen room had more towels than we could ever need. The street was quiet while being just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants. Parking was very limited (about 1.5 cars could fit) but we had no trouble finding parking in the same block. We want to come back!!!"

"We stayed here the week of July 10 through 17, 2015 and enjoyed every moment. It was such a comfortable space and located right in the middle of all there is do to! We enjoyed the towns of Blue Hill, Castine, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, and even took a day trip to Camden and Belfast!
The hummingbird feeders kept us entertained for hours! We were very happy with the Internet, satellite tv, gas stove, grill, and all the modern conveniences while feeling secluded and rustic all at the same time.
You won't find a better vacation property in this area.

"Our family of two adults and four kids spent a week in August 2015 at Seamist Cottage. The cottage was comfortable, clean, spacious, and provided us with the perfect quiet base from which to explore Acadia."

"The Bass Harbor Retreat is a home with charm and character. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen ideal for food preparation and traffic flow, the living room views and seating just right, especially for a quiet read on a rainy day. On sunny days, the views from the back deck show Bass Harbor and Mt Desert Island in full glory from a private vantage. Dog owners will appreciate the large, securely fenced yard and nearby walks at Ships Harbor and Wonderland trails; but the best was Long Pond near Seal Harbor. This spot provided perhaps our favorite dog walk ever. With a wide carriage road winding along the water, we could let our dogs off-leash while we all enjoyed the beauty of the freshwater pond, the pine woods nearby, the meadow surrounding and the trails nearby. Visiting and local dog owners find an ideal place to exercise and engage. A great spot recommended to us by the owner. Thanks so much.
There's so much to do and see on Mt Desert Island, we hope to return soon to explore further."
