EXCELLENT PLACE FOR A STAY

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the McKinley House two years in a row. Great location in that you have a nice view, you can grab the ferry boat and you can get to anywhere you want to go on Mt Desert Island. We also asked for some lobsters, which we got delivered to the house, which was awesome. We brought our dogs too, so great dog friendly place.

A PERFECT LOCATION IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
What a great accomodation! We were 4 couples and our stay was excellent. Our first time in Maine and this is a perfect location. The owners are fantastic and they own a restaurant a few yards from the house.The food and service was outstanding ans also they help you pick the right activities for the day. Truly recommend this house Bass Harbor and much prefer it than Bar Harbor.

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Maine with 4 adults and 5 children and had a wonderful week! The house and property are big enough for everyone to spread out and not feel cramped. We spent almost every day hiking and exploring Acadia National Park. There is a place within 10 miles of the house to rent bikes and the carriage trails in Acadia made great bike paths! I would definitely recommend the "popovers" at Jordan Pond along with the easy hike around it. We'll be back for sure!

THE MOST WONDERFUL WEEK EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Clean, cared for, comfortable, convenient, calming - there's little not to like. Owners were readily available and friendly. It's so nice to be immediately able to hop on the Swan's Island ferry or the shuttle (well, it starts the following week, but the potential is there!). Easy to plop kayaks in the harbor, close to the "quiet side" attractions. And, of course, so nice to be right next to "Mainely Delights" restaurant, with the BEST lobster bisque.
We're coming back!

BASS HARBOR---THE QUIETSIDE OF THE ISLAND

  • 4 of 5
What a beautiful view and a sunset every night! The 2 floors of living space provide plenty of room for families or 2 couples. The owner is very accommodating and has lots of suggestions for "things to do". The house is very clean and airy. It is close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park that you can go every day. A beach Lobster Cookout is available with special arrangements.
