  • 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!"

  • Outstanding Vacation

    "Rented this beautiful condo for a week in August. The owner was very helpful and considerate. The condo is outstanding. It is modern, clean, bright and well decorated. We enjoyed the multiple decks with great views of Southwest Harbor out front and one out back for cooking. We cooked each morning and almost every evening finding the kitchen to be well equipped. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms fairly large. The washer/dryer was a nice benefit. We also enjoyed the pool! Rent this home! You will have a great time!"

  • Spectacular Oceanfront View

    "We have stayed here each year for the last several years and look forward to returning next year. This bright, light home invites in the outside with its large windows overlooking an island-studded ocean. Views of lobster boats checking their traps and sailboats crossing in front of the beach provide peaceful entertainment for those moments when you return from exploring the island. The house is conveniently located minutes from the restaurants and shopping of Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor, and Northeast Harbor. We highly recommend this home for your Mt Desert stay."

  • Fantastic Week

    "The farmhouse was a wonderful property for our family group. Kids loved the layout and historic touches to the property, and the good wi-fi was a helpful tool for keeping them entertained. This home offers everything you need for a great stay in the region. Great linens, plenty of hot water, and a peaceful location close to shopping and activities. If you visit while the lupines are in bloom, the fields surrounding the property make for picture-perfect memories. The house is clean and very well kept, and Lamoine is an ideal location to be out of the crush of visitors but close to all the nearby attractions. We enjoyed the easy access to both Acadia on MDI as well as Acadia on the Schoodic Peninsula. I highly recommend and look forward to booking this home again. Thanks!"
