Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We visited the area from out of state for many years and just decided to buy a place we could call home during our summer visits!

Why Bass Harbor, Tremont, ME, USA:
Bass Harbor is the absolute idyllic spot when we think of Maine Coast. Not touristy like Bar Harbor, but close enough - about 15 miles. This is a quaint fishing village and Tall Pines Cottage is just a 2 minute walk to the harbor. Beautiful views to the west of the Western Mountains toward Bernard are an amazing backdrop for the harbor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's on a wonderfully quiet residential street, but only a 2 minute walk down to the harbor. In Bass Harbor (in walking distance) there are two restaurants, a working lobster pier, an antique store, ferry terminal to Swan's Island, a shuttle bus stop (the free Island Explorer shuttle) and close by is the Bass Head Lighthouse and some nature trails.
