"The cottage and the surrounding property were just wonderful. The interior of the cottage was rustic and unfinished. This added to the overall character of the place. The furniture was in good shape and the sofa was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for just about anything you can dream up for a meal. The cabinets hold a lot of goodies. Some of which we didn't discover until later in the stay. But that was probably because we didn't look thoroughly enough. We had a few meals on the table out on the deck to enjoy the view and to take advantage of the phenomenal weather. Words cannot fully describe the beauty of a Maine sunrise. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return someday soon. Ed with SeaScape Kayaks was a great tour guide. I highly recommend them for a great tour of the neighboring islands. We bought lobster from the Winter Harbor Coop and cooked them at the cottage. They were delicious. This place is so quiet. The only sounds are the gentle lapping of the waves, the occasional lobster boat, loons, eagles, etc. Thanks for a great week."

Beautiful views, awesome property, nice owners and caretaker
"We loved this place. The house is old and charming, a typical Cape farmhouse on a beautiful lot overlooking the Northern Bay. The owners checked in on us to make sure everything was ok and their Down East native caretaker stopped in a couple of times to say hi. Lovely old barn, meadow, and creek with lots of wildlife to photograph (even Eagles and Bobolinks aka skunk birds!). Great centralized location for exploring Castine, Bucksport, Bar Harbor (Bah Hahbah). We'd like to rent again some day in the future. :) Recommend seeing Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory nearby and the snack bar just down the road."

"My husband and I, and 2 other couples just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved every minute. It is perfect because each couple has their own bdrm. and bath and the common areas are spacious and cosy. We were greeted with a gorgeous bouquet of lupine on the kitchen counter. The construction details of this home are amazing and agreeing with other reviews, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped(we only fixed breakfast), and the views will refresh your soul. We highly recommend "Il Bassino"!"

"My family and I stayed at this house in beautiful Prospect Harbor this past 2014 season. We had a great time, as we love our Maine vacations. This house was just the right size for our family of 4. It is nice and open in the main living area with a beautiful view of the lighthouse at Prospect Harbor. This is one of our favorite locations in Maine. We felt right at home and so comfortable! We saw an eagle, osprey (up close!), deer, and even a porcupine which climbed a tree and took a nice long nap. At dark, be sure to stargaze out on the deck for a fantastic view of the stars.
The owner of the house was great to deal with. Any time we had contact before and after our stay, our emails or phone calls were answered promptly. The house was clean and ready for our visit.
We would recommend this property for a small family, or up to 6 people would be a comfortable fit. The rocky shoreline at the property was fun to explore! There are plenty of other sights to see and places to visit that are close by. One of the favorites is Schoodic Point where the ocean meets the huge Maine rocky coastline. There are lots of trails to hike there, as well as at Acadia National Park. And leave lots of time for relaxing!
