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. Our Carriage House has commanding views of Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay and also offers a second floor 'under the eaves' master bedroom with a balcony, electric fireplace, personal sauna, skylights, queen bed, flat-screen television and shower bath. This cottage has a full bath, basic modern galley kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, and living area with fireplace, flat-screen TV, first floor deck overlooking Bass Harbor and one first floor bedroom with two double beds. Free in-cottage wifi. Free parking for two vehicles.
