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!

Great House in the Harbor!

  • 5 of 5
We rented both levels of the McKinnley House. My parents stayed in the lower level and we were in the upper. The house itself is very nice and has everything that you would need for cooking and relaxing. We enjoyed looking out on the harbor from the huge deck area. The beds were comfortable and easy to sleep in. Our only complaint during our stay was that it rained everyday we were there. Nothing that Janice can do about that. We made the best of it and had a good time anyway.

The location was good for us, we were close enough to the park and especially the Lighthouse to get everything done that we wanted.

Having the split levels worked great for us as my children are early risers, we didn't have to worry about them waking up Grandma and Grandpa. There was plenty of room for everyone to eat upstairs together, also.

Even though we stayed just before regular season was to start Janice was nice enough to offer to cook us up some lobsters. Great Hostess' and very helpful.

If we ever come back to Maine we would stay here again!
