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 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 tide will change in front of your eyes. 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 birding, 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, and seasonal restaurants. Free in-cottage wifi. Free parking next to the Carriage House.
The Carriage House is available as a two bedroom, two bath, two story cottage. Minimum stays are in effect and linen is provided. Your MC/Visa is accepted for Maine’s 9% Lodging Tax. Additional cleaning and security will be charged to your card as needed. We live on-site and will be able to help you through-out your stay.
