I stayed here for six nights with my family on a first time trip to Mount Desert Island. This is a great location with fine views from the 2bed/2 bath Boathouse cottage we rented. Easy to find and adequate parking. There is nothing much within walking distance but plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within a very short drive. Free...

The two bedroom two bath cottage in the Boathouse overlooking the water was very comfortable and cozy. Connie was exceptionally friendly and helpful. This will be my first choice for my frequent business trips to Mt Desert Island. Just another thing to love about this beautiful part of New England.

I recently stayed at the Bass Harbor Cottages with my girlfriend, and we really enjoyed our stay. Connie, the inn keeper, was very friendly and easy to work with. It was a bit inconvenient to reserve the room, because we had to send a check in the mail and couldn't simply use a credit card to reserve online. I also...

We booked a room at the inn for two nights on Labor Day weekend. My husband had explained to the innkeeper that we would be on the island to attend a wedding. We arrived to check in at 4:00 with just enough time to dress for the rehearsal dinner at 5:00. Unfortunately the innkeeper greeted us with "didn't you get...

We stayed at the Boat House Cottage loft. It's an apartment on the 3rd (top) floor overlooking the Bass Harbor bay. All apartment windows face the water (and there is a balcony as well) looking West so sunsets and sunny afternoons were very pleasant to watch or enjoy with a book. One morning we saw a bald eagle on the...

We enjoyed our three nights in the cottage at Bass Harbor and will return. The views are beautiful for sunrise and sunset. We had a snowstorm while we were here and lost power but the generator kept the water pump working and the fireplaces kept us warm. The cottage is private and quiet, at least in October. Next time we...

We rented one of the self catering cottages. Although there were warning signs when we booked, no visitors after 9, we had explained that relatives might drop by during the day for a coffee or to meet up for a trip. Our stay was spoiled on day one when confronted by proprieter's passive / aggressive attitude when said brother in...

My husband came to Bass Harbor Cottages and Inn for our honeymoon. We are the outdoor-type so Maine was perfect for us. Connie let us check in about 4 hours early - which was a blessing. She walked us down to the Pine Cottages to make sure we had all that we needed. The cottage took us by surprise a...
