About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Charming cabin located directly on Bass Harbor. Quiet, awesome views, close to Acadia National Park and other amenities Mount Desert Island is known for.This one bedroom cottage hangs over the water at high tide. The first floor is one room with living/dining area and a kitchen alcove. There is a queen futon in the living room, and a sliding glass door that opens on to the deck. Upstairs the bedroom has a queen size bed and commanding views of the harbor and off shore islands. Harbor and Ocean views, and water access define this location.

From our dock next door you will have acess to some of the best kayaking and canoeing in the area. You can explore the very calm and protected inner harbor and for the more adventurous a paddle into Blue Hill Bay on a quiet day is a lot of fun. On a high tide you can cross under the bridge at the head of the harbor and go for miles on the streams into the very heart of acadia National Park. Very few people paddle here in the streams and you will have the fishing and wildlife to your self. Bring your own boats or rent one here locally.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first visit to Maine where we stayed in this great cottage. We felt like we were viewing a postcard through our window or while sitting on the deck (with jackets on!) with the boats in the harbor, the clean air and sparkling colors of turning trees. The cottage is perfect for two, very clean and a great jumping off to all parts of MDI and Schoodic Point as nothing is really far. We found several lobster pounds still open as we were there the day the "season" ended. The listing was accurate, keys were on the table on arrival, the heater worked well and the bed was comfortable. I have three recommendations from this trip...the cottage itself, the Diver Dan boat trip which was fun,educational and pretty amazing as Diver Dan and Mini Dan introduced us to life under the sea at 40 feet and a visit or two to Acadia NP.

Quiet, nice place with beautiful view of the harbor

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in the shoulder season and it was the perfect getaway for a couple looking for a quiet week on Mount Desert Island. The place is right on the water and within walking distance of a great Lobster shack, so we could walk to dinner if we wanted which is always a plus. It's in the quiet part of the island and just a short drive to all of the great hiking that Acadia has to offer. Highly recommended.

Cottage on Bass Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage! My husband and I have stayed there the past 2 summers, and my parents are going back for their second time next week... It is a nice location with the back deck overlooking the harbor and lobster boats. Only one restaurant in walking distance, but a quick drive brings you into Southwest Harbor, and about 25mins to Bar Harbor.

My husband and I are both artists and enjoy relaxing and listening to music on the back deck while drawing or painting, also great for getting lost in a book! Highly recommend it!
