  • 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!"

  • Great house for a family event

    "The house is in a great location, out of the way and quiet, but still close to all the Bar Harbor has to offer. Plenty of room for our large family on our visit to the area to attend our daughter's college graduation. We especially enjoyed the spacious deck and grills during out stay."

  • Great family vacation!

    "Our extended family of ten spent a glorious week at Fjord House. We hiked, biked, saw whales and the Windjammer parade and thoroughly enjoyed the home on Somes Sound. After a busy day exploring, it was always so nice to come home to the "quiet side" of Acadia!"

  • Lovely as always!

    "In our first return visit to Acadia Meadows, we had an even better time than last year. What a lovely place, so perfectly located close enough to Bar Harbor to get to town quickly, but right in the middle of the park with quick access for great biking and running. Suze and Todd are great hosts, with a lovely and convenient property. We hope to return next year!"
