About the Property

Three Season Cottage, 3 BRs, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) with View of Bass Harbor

We call it our cottage but it's really a second home. It is a weekly rental with arrival and departure on Saturday. Enjoy fabulous sunsets from this idyllic coastal cottage situated in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors. A large screened porch faces west and graces the front of the cottage providing additional space with views of the inner harbor directly out to Blue Hill Bay. Inside you will find a master bedroom with bath and walk-in closet (the bed is queen size with a firm mattress), a living room with harbor views (large TV with cable and DVD player, radio, and wireless internet access), a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a second bedroom with two single beds, and another room with futon that will comfortably sleep two youngsters. There are fans but a cottage on the ocean usually receives cool breezes so are rarely needed. There is a well equipped kitchen and gas grill in the shed. If you like eating out, there are several nice places nearby. There is a lobster dealer within walking distance that sells live lobster and fresh crab meat. Pots for boiling lobster and steaming clams are in the basement and a propane boiler is in the outside shed. Precooked takeout of clams and lobster can be purchased on the other side of the harbor - short drive. The cottage is elevated from the road in front and with landscaping it offers privacy. The front lawn is level.
Bass Harbor Lighthouse is an easy mile walk (one-way). Aa short drive (5 minutes)will take you to either the Ship Harbor or the Wonderland trails and a leisurely hike along the ocean shore. Use our hiking guides to find the many other trails in Acadia National Park or maps for bike loops. Bike rentals are available four miles away in Southwest Harbor. Kayak rentals are also available nearby. Guided kayak trips can be arranged in Southwest Harbor. The Island Explorer shuttle stop is a two minute walk and will take you and your bicycle almost anywhere you would like to go on Mt Desert Island. Parking can be an issue in Acadia National Park so the bus can be a good way to travel.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are an active outdoor retired couple from Western Maine who enjoy the hiking and biking opportunities that the Mount Desert Island area offers. We have a Golden Retriever named Sage who loves to hike. She especially likes the walk to the Lighthouse from the cottage and also the leisurely walks at the Ship Harbor and Wonderland trails

Why Bass Harbor, Tremont, ME, USA:
Mount Desert Island is home to Acadia National Park and Acadia is one of the most visited National Parks in the country. While visitors do flock to the area, Bass Harbor is located on the 'quiet side' of Mt Desert Island. While it's less visited, we are still only 25 minutes from most any location on the island. We are close to Echo Lake which is a fresh water lake with a wonderful beach. The cottage is close to hiking trails and biking loops. The village of Southwest Harbor is 4 miles away and offers shopping and nice places to eat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The smell of the salt air is a special early morning treat and the sights and sounds of the lobster boats leaving and returning the harbor is unique. The ferry to Swan's Island (inhabited year round) leaves several times a day from the terminal across the road. We like to use the 'Ferry Window' to watch the ferry dock, load, and depart. Taking our own trip on the ferry to Swan's Island with bikes makes for a nice day, too, but some days we just like to stay home and read. It wouldn't be a visit to Bass Harbor without a short walk to CH Rich to pick up a few lobsters for supper. Our favorite time of the day is the evening. Watching the sun go down over Bass Harbor with all the boats safely moored for the night is really pretty.
