  • Great House, Great Location

    "This was our first time traveling to Maine, and we are so glad we chose this home for our vacation. The house is located in a quiet location, which is semi wooded. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The location is perfect for exploring Acadia National Park as well as the other Towns in the area, and is close to many restaurants. We spent most of our time exploring Acadia National Park and did a lot of hiking daily. It was nice to come back to the house and relax in the hot tub on the back deck. The house has a gas fireplace in the living room and we used it nightly, it was nice to relax on the couch watching TV and the fire. The owner is great to deal with, she always promptly answered any questions I had prior to our arrival. We will definitely be renting this house again when we come back to Maine. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone visiting the area."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation in Acadia

    "We had a wonderful week at BassTerre. We knew that Acadia would be spectacular, but was so thrilled to see that BassTerre was equally terrific. The property is just as described, but the view and private setting is even more impressive than shown. We really appreciated the owners many recommendations, and the cottage had absolutely everything we needed to make us feel at home. Our kids explored the shoreline each day, going on countless “buoy hunts” and we loved the huge front lawn for family games of badminton and soccer.(as well as building evening campfires on the beach!) Great location to get to the park and most of our days were spent hiking and exploring Acadia. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 30 minutes), you can't do better. Southwest Harbor is less than 10 minutes away with many lovely shops and restaurants and Bass Harbor is only 5 minutes away (Island Cruises, out of Bass Harbor, is a must!) The views from the cottage and deck were absolutely breathtaking, lobster boats were fun to watch and hear, an eagle flying overhead, deer in the early morning, and being able to step out to our private beach was priceless. Lobster was available just about everywhere, but we really enjoyed ordering it fresh from the Goose Cove lobstermen and enjoying it on our deck while watching the sunset. So beautiful, so Maine, so thankful for it all. Will definitely return to BassTerre for more family memories!"

  • Perfect place to stay

    "The house was comfortable and located in a beautiful, peaceful wooded setting. It had everything we needed, and was less than 20 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. I hope to stay there again in the future!"

  • Great house! Great location!

    "We had a fantastic vacation. The house had everything we needed, and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to the many restaurants in town in about 10 minutes. The owners were great to work with. I hope to come back next year and would love to stay here again!"
