  • 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."

  • An amazing place to stay

    "We had an amazing time at this cabin! It is quiet and tucked away in a beautiful area of MDI. The space perfectly suited the needs of our little family (2 adults, a 5 month old and a dog). All week we woke to beautiful sunrises over the water, ate breakfast at the table, and then set out to explore Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and Southwest Harbor. We would come home at dinner time (baby goes to sleep early) and enjoyed playing cards in the peace and quiet. Then we would lay out on the nice deck and gaze at the amazing night sky. Make sure you explore the beach at different tides! We had a lot of fun looking for shells and sea glass. The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and uncluttered. Ben was extremely quick to reply to emails and phone calls (and is super nice too). I would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended this cabin to family and friends. Thank you for making our first family vacation a great one!"

  • Perfect!

    "The Blue Rose Cottage was exactly as described and perfect for our stay. Very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Location was great- just a short walk to everything. We had wonderful weather and were able to fully enjoy being outside. We love Bar Harbor and the park; it is such a beautiful place."

  • Quintessential maine

    "Like a kid at Christmas, I was so delighted from the moment we drove onto Dodge Point and settled in to our cottage in Seal Cove. Well equipped and very comfortable, from the bed linens to the wide array of cookware. Had some cool evenings, was nice having a woodstove. never wanted to leave, and wandered all over the point, and enjoyed many sunsets from both the beach, the dock and our own deck. If you ever want to close your eyes and imagine a peaceful, beautiful spot...this will be it. And we will be back! Thank you so much for sharing this little piece of heaven!"
