Recent Mount Desert Island reviews

  • Refreshing week on the Maine Coast

    "Three well-maintained, cozy, charming cottages at the end of a quiet dirt road offer a spectacular view over Frenchman's Bay, access to the beach, and a great jumping-off point for day-trips to Acadia National Park or around Mount Desert Isle. After adventures, this is a great place to return to for an evening on the deck or at the fire pit. We grilled, cooked lobster in the well-provided kitchen, took long walks along the shore, and enjoyed the autumnal smell of the piney woods. Local sites and restaurants were within easy striking distance. Pet-friendly. Owners are very responsive and friendly. We will be back next year!"

  • 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 Spot for Acadia

    "We had a great week here. The house is comfortable, well equipped and full of extras. Just far enough from the crowds and close enough to everyplace we wanted to visit. Fall colors were at their peak and we could have just stayed in the house all week and had a fine time in the yard and on the deck. Judy and Ralph are perfect hosts. Michael and Barbara"

  • Wonderful experience

    "We stayed over Columbus Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The location of the house is amazing, right on the water. The sunsets were gorgeous and we really enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the evening. The house was dog friendly, which was a huge plus because we were able to bring our two dogs. We didn't have the right weather to be able to use the kayaks or row boat, but wandered the beach right in front of the house and did some exploring. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet retreat with amazing views!"
