"Beautiful house with plenty of room. Kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean. Short walk to the harbor and Seafood Ketch restaurant (awesome place to catch the sunset). In a quiet area of the island but close to points of interest. We enjoy time on the porch and the gas fireplace. I would highly recommend this house."

"We loved our vacation at this comfortable cottage. What an amazing location! The view is incredible, and we enjoyed watching the lobster boats going in and out of Bass Harbor. Our kids loved playing on the rocky shore. We like to cook, and the kitchen is well stocked, including all the tools needed for lobster! The owner was extremely helpful in providing information and tips about the house and things to do in the area. We liked being on the quiet side of the island, and we enjoyed exploring the nearby towns of Bass Harbor and Southwest Harbor, as well as Bar Harbor on the other side of the island."

"As we live in the UK firstly we would like to say how accommodating Shelley was in sorting out the payment and deposit for us. Initially we were only going to book a week but we decided to stay at Ebb Tide for 10 days and so glad we did. The house was perfect with ever changing tides, wonderful views over Bass harbour and was surrounded by flowers and shrubs. We are both keen photographers so several evenings we were able to set up our cameras in the garden to catch the sunsets and stars with I have to say very few mosquitoes. The house itself was very clean, well equipped with a very comfortable bed, superb views and except for the occasional early lobster boat was very quiet and peaceful. The house is well situated for the sights of Acadia National Park, where we spent most of our holiday, and of course those wonderful sweet lobsters. We enjoyed our chats with Rudy the golden retriever and Shelley, in particular those on vegetables. Our hosts were available but totally unobtrusive. We hope to return someday to capture not only the summer colours but also the autumn ones."

"We arrived on Sunday evening and could not have been more excited about our drive to Bass Harbor. Our vacation rental was located in a large historic home owned by Barb and Bill Evans. The house was constructed in the mid 1800's. The home is been sectioned off converting the back half into its own private living quarters. This charming rental has a very large kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths, living and laundry room. The rental is complete with wifi and cable tv. The best asset of the home are the owners Barb and Bill Evans. Barb and Bill have been living at their summer home for the past 27 years. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local establishments and historic parts of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia. Fresh lobsters can be purchased across the street, and if you need help, Bill graciously volunteers his time to show you how to prepare them. Bass Harbor is a beautiful, picturesque harbor town. As you look out across the bay you see what you have always imagined....lobster boats, lobster buoys, sailboats, and boat docks. The village homes are complimented by landscaping arrangements full of a vast variety of delightful wild flowers. Across the harbor you can see the town of Bernard nestled on a hill displaying it's own small town charm. The best thing about Bass Harbor is that it is removed from all of the hustle and bustle found in the other harbor town communities on Mt. Desert Island. It is so much more relaxing than having to deal with the traffic and commercialism found in the nearby towns. After you have had a day out touring Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Northeast Harbor you can come back to Barb and Bill Evan's rental for a relaxing evening, take a walk around the bay, or eat at the Seafood Katch. I would not stay anywhere else....hoping to return for another great vacation!"
