Perfect family week in Maine
"We rented this house for two families with a total of four adults and four children, ages 6-11. It was the perfect home base for Acadia National Park; we were close to the entire park and just a 10-minute drive to parts of it. This is the quiet side of the island and not touristy like Bar Harbor but it is easy to get to Bar Harbor for food or shopping.
The house has a gigantic family room with a pool table and every possible entertainment amenity. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking tools and drawers and cabinets are labeled, which is a brilliant idea. If you get tired of cooking we recommend the pizza and baked goods at Little Notch.
Hosts were gracious and generous, and answered even the tiniest questions quickly. They even replaced a phonograph needle for us so we could show our kids how a record player works. :)
One note: the house has five bedrooms, including the downstairs apartment. One of the upstairs bedrooms has its own bathroom but the room is accessible only through another bedroom. This worked fine for us but might be useful information.
We would rent this house again."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. Cozy is a perfect description. We enjoyed seeing a deer walk through the backyard on a couple of evenings as he made his way to the field next door to eat in a field of flowers. This cottage is in a quiet quaint community that we loved. We enjoyed walking down the lane to the causeway to see the water and the boats out in the cove. Acadia is such a beautiful place to visit. Our 18 year old son took us on many hiking adventures that led to beautiful views of the Acadia seashore. I hope we get to return to this area in the future and if we do we will definitely want to stay here again. The owner was very nice and helpful and we would not hesitate to rent from him again."

"We are enjoying our stay in this comfortable cottage. The view is great. Bass Harbor is quiet and low key and still allows you easy access to Acadia National Park, good restaurants and shopping. We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this well maintained cottage with our well traveled little dog. Enjoyed all the conveniences provided, the private parking and the wonderful deck."

"Bass Harbor Retreat was a great place to stay for our Maine vacation. It is a charming cottage with lots of personality. We loved the harbor views, fire pit, flowers, and house. You can tell the owner has put a lot of thought and effort into hosting guests. The small town location in Bernard gave us a glimpse of life in Maine more than if we had stayed in Bar Harbor. We enjoyed walking around, seeing the working lobster harbor, and relaxing on the porch. We did drive to hike in Acadia quite a bit and by the end of the week were tired of making the drive. Don't stay here if you want to be in the middle of the action in Bar Harbor. Do stay here if you would like to enjoy a small town, Maine setting. Go by a pie from one of the pie huts along the road, walk to get the best fresh lobster at Thurston's Lobster Pound, and enjoy a beautiful setting and cozy house. Thanks for a great stay!"
