We were 7 friends all 70 and then some. Some of us had been to Bass Harbor before and for others this was a first. The house is charming and very well equipped, beds, kitchen, washer and dryer and best of all a great porch. The owners were most helpful in suggesting not to be missed sites and restaurants. Our favorite morning spot was Common Grounds, they serve the best popovers on the island, and coffee and old fashion oatmeal...not to be missed.
The house allowed each of us together spaces and private space, which was needed for a 2 week vacation with car travel. I will recommend this house to any and all who plan to visit Mt Desert Island and Arcadia National Park.
During the summer there is free bus service on the island and over to Ellsworth so its possible to enjoy Seamist cottage without a car.
