Beautiful views in a peaceful setting
This mother-in-law apartment is small but contains everything you need to enjoy a quiet vacation for two. The apartment was very clean, with a comfortable bed. While there is not a full kitchen, my husband and I successfully cooked meals on the hotplates,outdoor grill, and toaster oven. There is also a microwave and coffee maker to use. The view from the large picture window is exceptional. While this location in Bass Harbor is approximately 30 minutes from Bar Harbor, it is close to many great hikes, Southwest Harbor, and one of the best lobster pounds, Thurstons.
Diane, Andrew, and their dog Lulu were excellent hosts and we would not hesitate to book again on a return trip to Mount Desert Island.
Fabulous retreat from the Texas heat.
Beautiful location right on Bass Harbor. We sat for hours and watched the tide go in and out and just enjoyed the weather. Also enjoyed watching the lobster boats and marine life. Andrew and Diane were very warm and friendly.
The views out our window were absolutely breathtaking.
We chose this location because it was on the quiet side of MDI. The Apartment was clean and met all of our needs. The owners who live on the property were lovely ,extremely accommodating, and gracious enough to share their little piece of paradise with us. We were able to kayak right off the property as it has a long stretch of private beach. In the evening we grabbed a bottle of wine and chairs and went down to the beach and watched the gorgeous sunsets. Park transportation was a 5 minute walk up the street at the camp. The Bass Harbor lighthouse was also a short walk away.
My husband and I stayed here for the week of 6/23-6/30/18. Dianne and Andrew, the owners, are very gracious and friendly, ready to offer advice or answer questions on where to find the best lobster dinner or what to see on the island. Nestled at the end of a long driveway, this is the perfect place to relax, slow down, and take in the beautiful scenery. It is located on the edge of Bass Harbor, where you can watch the lobster boats checking their traps, enjoy the cool breeze coming off the water, and take in the serenity of beautiful sunsets. We even saw a deer swimming across the water and climbing up on land! The apartment is on the second floor with a huge picture window facing the water. It comes fully stocked with anything you might need, and everything was very clean and comfortable. The two-car garage is included in the rental, where you have access to a washer and dryer. We really appreciated this, since my husband had spent a week fishing on Lake Champlain before we traveled to Maine, and had a bag full of laundry!
Although we were attached to the main house, we enjoyed the privacy of the backyard and felt like we were in our own little paradise. We especially enjoyed watching the antics of two little squirrels in their efforts to get to the birdseed in the feeder. Dianne has numerous flowerbeds and an impressive vegetable garden on the property, which added to the tranquility of the setting. Even though we were on the "quiet side" of the island, it was just a short drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Public buses are available at no cost, although we did not take advantage of this.
Overall, we had a wonderful time during our week here! If you are planning a vacation to Acadia National Park, this is definitely the perfect place to stay!
At the Farm
We enjoyed staying at the "Farm"... Everything was immaculately clean, bright and fresh. The view was beautiful and the location was quiet and within walking distance to Harbor Headlight.
Comfortable apartment on scenic Bass Harbor coast with easy access to Acadia National Park
Stayed for a week in September 2017. Comfortable upstairs apartment with necessary amenities. Besides the apartment we had the spacious garage to ourselves along with its full-size refrigerator and washer/dryer. Plenty of blankets for cool autumn nights. Loved looking out living room windows watching lobster boats and sailboats leave Bass Harbor on crispy/foggy mornings. Nice short walk to Bass Harbor Lighthouse. Property is very well located on Maine Central Coast a short drive to Bar Harbor and the main loops of Acadia National Park. Walk to the Bass Harbor ferry and take a ride to Frenchboro Island.
Slightly nervous prior to arrival regarding privacy issues staying for a week in an apartment attached to a private home but the owners quickly put my wife and I at ease. They are good people and were very gracious, helpful, and accommodating to a couple of landlocked mid-westerners.
Harbour Reach Farm es una propiedad de 5 acres de costa arbolada. La madre de Andrew posee un solar arbolado de 5 acres similar al norte. Hacia nuestro sur hay un terreno baldío de 2/3 acres que linda directamente con cientos de acres de tierras del Parque Nacional Acadia y el famoso Faro Bass Harbor Head. Por lo tanto, Harbour Reach Farm es muy tranquilo, aislado y sereno. Algunos huéspedes rara vez abandonan la propiedad durante toda su estadía. Prefieren relajarse en la playa, leer un libro, ver los barcos y la vida silvestre deslizarse, disfrutar de magníficas puestas de sol, etc.
El lado occidental de Mount Desert se conoce con mucha precisión como 'The Quietside'. Cuando la Primera Familia visitó MDI varios veranos atrás, los Obamas pasaron parte de su visita aquí, recorriendo el Faro al final de nuestro camino, caminando por el sendero Ship Harbor y cenando en un restaurante frente al mar en el vecino Southwest Harbor. Muy cerca se encuentran el sendero del océano de las maravillas y el área de picnic Seawall, todo parte del Parque Nacional Acadia.
Bass Harbor tiene 3 restaurantes con vistas al agua. La langosta de Thurston en el lado Bernard de Bass Harbor es un muelle de langostas al por mayor que compra diariamente a los pescadores locales de langostas. El barco turístico Swan's Island Ferry y Little Island se encuentra a pocos kilómetros de distancia.
Southwest Harbor está a unos 10 minutos en coche, donde se pueden encontrar más restaurantes frente al mar y muelles de langosta. La biblioteca está bien equipada. Hay una tienda de comestibles de tamaño mediano, así como una tienda de alimentos gourmet, farmacia y dos bancos. Pesca, vela, alquiler de barcos y kayak están disponibles. Un barco de correo lleva a los pasajeros a las islas Cranberry varias veces al día.
El pintoresco club de golf Causeway Club de 9 hoyos da la bienvenida a todos los golfistas.
Bar Harbor y las principales secciones del Parque Nacional Acadia están a unos 30 minutos en coche. La mayor parte del parque se puede visitar a través del sistema gratuito de autobuses Island Explorer. Hay una parada de autobús cerca de Harbor Reach Farm. El Parque Nacional Acadia es el segundo parque nacional más visitado en los Estados Unidos. El sitio web es www. nps. gov / acad / index. htm
