Property description

On the shore of Bass Harbor, close to Acadia National Park and on the outskirts of Bass Harbor Village, the Carriage House offers a peaceful, private waterfront setting for year round vacation or retreat. Located on the 'quietside' of Mount Desert Island, this cottage has spectacular views of the water - if you watch closely, you may see an eagle on the wing or a seal splashing in the harbor. The free, seasonal Island Explorer Shuttle will help you enjoy the beauty of our small, green island.

The Carriage House is a romantic get-away for hiking, biking, and kayaking through the Park. Popular activities include antiquing, birding, and nature cruises from Bass Harbor, fresh water swimming at Echo Lake, and brisk salt water swimming at Back Beach in Bernard. It is a half hour from whale watches in Bar Harbor and within walking distance of the convenience store, the Post Office, seasonal restaurants, and gift shops. Free in-cottage wifi. Free parking next to the Carriage House.

Generally speaking, the Carriage House is available by the week from mid-July to mid-August and rates for two in one bedroom start at $1399 weekly, based on your bringing your own linen. Looking for smaller with two beds for two? Try our Tapley Suite HomeAway 3506892 or our third floor HomeAway Loft at the Boat House Cottage.
