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.

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience. The cottage was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The kayaking was outstanding and we even had a seal pop up beside my wife. A neighbor was very helpful in helping us find the cottage as the directions get you close but it is right down on the water near a marina and we thought the road only took you to it. Loved or time there

Perfect spot on the quietside of MDI.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Shorefront home to enjoy this busy working harbor. Great spot to base yourself to enjoy your vacation. Walk to Thurston’s for lunch or dinner. Kayak or bike from the cottage. Close by gentle hike at Acadia Mountain. 30 minutes to busy Bar Harbor or NPS headquarters. Cottage had everything our family of three needed.

Vivre au rythme d’un petit port de la Nouvelle-Angleterre

  • 5 of 5

Une charmante maisonnette, meublée simplement, ouverte sur le petit port où les marins préparaient leur bateau pour la pêche à venir. Un hameau calme, paisible habité par des gens charmants, accueillants mais surtout discrets, ce que nous apprécions par dessus tout.

Nous avons marché, rêvé, observé la vie du port et nous nous sommes surtout reposés.

Nous avons observé les guillemots, les loups marins, les aigles, un chevreuil aux grandes oreilles frémissantes et nous avons regardé la mer monter et descendre.

C’est avec regret que nous avons quitté Bernard et le joli petit cottage aux pieds dans l’eau.

Merci aux propriétaires pour leur gentillesse et leur infinie discrétion.

Nous espérons y revenir un jour.
