About Karen Perry
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
Karen Perry purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Karen Perry chose Tremont
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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 few lobsters for supper. Live lobsters can be purchased across the harbor at Thurstons. Kettles are in the basement and the gas cooker is in the shed. 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.
