  • A slice of paradise on beautiful Goose Cove!

    "We selected BassTerre for our spring vacation and couldn't be happier with our decision. We've rented vacation homes on the Oregon coast, the Blue Ridge mountains and the Florida panhandle and BassTerre was by far the nicest and most comfortable home yet exceeding our expectations. The cottage was immaculate and attractively furnished with so many thoughtful details not normally found in a vacation "rental". We felt at home immediately and everything you need to relax is provided from the large selection of books and travel guides to the wonderful Adirondack chairs outside at the oceans edge. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook full meals or steam lobsters/clams right down to the spices. We hiked several great trails including Penobscot Mountain to Sargent Pond, the Beehive, Champlain Mountain and South Bubble. Jordan Pond house's popovers are not to be missed and were the perfect end to one of our hikes. We walked the carriage trails, went tidepooling at Ship's Harbor Nature Trail and shopped in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. A favorite outing took us to Northeast Harbor which we visited after seeing the Asticou Azalea Gardens. And I can't emphasize enough how gorgeous the views are here. Stunning sunsets were enjoyed right from our deck and huge front yard, while the backdrop of Acadia's landscape framed the scene. Just breathtaking! The starry skies at night took our breath away and walks along the shore during low tide offered us lots to explore in the tidal pools. Kayaking right from beach was incredible! We saw a harbor seal as we paddled and even met a cove lobsterman hauling in his traps. The awe-inspiring natural beauty of Blue Hill Bay and Acadia National Park was at our fingertips both weeks, and it was truly tough to leave. Just a peaceful slice of heaven...that's the best way I can describe our experience here and would highly recommend!"

  • Fantastic home for family!

    "We had such a great time in this home! Plenty of room, fully stocked kitchen, and such a comfortable and welcoming and beautiful place! We had 7 adults and a baby and had plenty of room! And the location was perfect! So glad we did not stay in Bar Harbor where everything is so touristy. We kayaked on a nearby pond, hiked on nearby trails, loved the little village town where we picked up fresh lobster to cook every night. And Suzanne was just an email away, although we didn't need a thing. Thank you - we will be back!!"

  • It was a cozy apartment, nicely spacious inside for a family of 6-8 people

    "We came. Information was clear. The house is right next to the downtown. Some construction next to the house, but no problem because of private parking, which seems to be not common in the neighborhood. Nice place for 2 vans. The Pizzeria next door is amazing. They had nice puzzle sets which kids spent evenings working on instead of watching TV. TV didn't work, but never bothered to look into it, because kids were happy with other things to do and we didn't want to have TV. Entire week with no TV is amazing! It is convenient to Acadia. 5 mins from Cadillac mountain entrance (2 miles) and we were there for sunrise 3 times during our 6 days. Would highly recommend for families with young children."

  • Mt. Desert Island/Acadia vacation

    "This house was perfect for our long awaited visit to Acadia NP and Mt. Desert Island. You can get anywhere on the island or mainland easily. If you don't want to leave the house there is plenty to do; play pool, bocce ball, walk the garden and grounds, listen to the birds, look for wildlife, watch beautiful sunsets over the water and behind Blue Hill. Judy and Ralph were the perfect hosts. They answered our many questions whether it was about directions, history or meals. They are there if you need them or nonintrusive. We did not want to leave and will go back if we have the opportunity!"
