Guestbook comments from the owner

Kindred spirits live here - your Mexican tile was in our first Florida house - Mark said we've had every one of these colors in our homes - the woodstove was a test run for us - we'll buy one for our mountain home in NC...better than expected. Peaceful, private and close to everything. KUDOS to you both!

Quaint, Charming, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay in this cute and charming house. The owners provided exactly what was promised. This house is located on the quiet side of the island in a tucked away area in the fishing village of Bass Harbor. It is clean and well-maintained and offers an outdoors hot tub and gazebo. The nice owners have a little coffee and pastry house down the road in Southwest Harbor. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a quiet visit to the Bar Harbor area.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daugter and I had a wonderful time staying at the Bass Harbor House. The house was in a great location for exploring Acadia National Park and the rest of Mount Desert Island while providing a nice place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Southwest Harbor is a stones thow away if you are looking for a meal out and Bar Harbor is only a short drive away. A trip to Maine is not complete without a lobster or 2 and Thurston's Lobster Pound is just down the road and worth the trip as is Maine'ly Delights. And if you are feeling like doing your own cooking, which we did a lot of, the kicthen in the house is excellent and fully equiped. If you are looking for somewhere on the quiet side of the island this is it.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Bass Harbor house last week. It rained the entire time, but the place was lovely. My husband, my parents (77 years young and I didn’t let the rain stop us). We shopped in Bar Harbor, ate more lobster than I knew possible. Took a ferry ride, went to Acadia Park and were close to everything. It was like our own little oases. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Delightful Bass Harbor Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I've rented many houses/apartments/condos over the years, but this house was truly the best of them all, something that the pictures can't fully convey. It's a startling case of the reality transcending the pitch. The owners anticipate literally everything that you might want, and the house itself is wonderfully comfortable. You'll bliss out in the screened arbor, surrounded by a lovely garden. When you tear yourself away to go back indoors, you'll fantasize yourself at home, if you lived with no clutter and tastefully appointed furniture in every room. Cooking was a delight in a kitchen with beautiful marble countertops and high-end appliances. The master bedroom bed has one of those independently adjustable matresses for couples with different firmness preferences. What can I say, you'll have trouble tearing yourself away on the final morning. Bass Harbor itself is one of the best, most authentically Maine villages on Mount Desert Island, with good local restaurants and the more varied offerings of Southwest Harbor only minutes away. I'm already making plans to return.

Not Quite Like Home

  • 2 of 5
We had been to MDI many times prior to our last visit in August of 2008. Everything about the house was quaint - a bit smaller, but quaint enough. Owners left a basket with a roll of TP and similar bath accessories along with a nice note, which is usually the case. the big upset was that a portion of our deposit was kept because of damage done to a table we were not responsible for. I understand it is a "your-word-against-mine" situation, but these owners did not have the decency to return our calls or email so that a discussion could take place. we are a family of four (two babies) who saved up for the year to make this vacation happen. we were ignored and wrongly accused. I did not even mention to the owners that cobwebs were everywhere, including dead insects and that some renovations were completely cosmetic. also, one day we came back to the house in the late afternoon to find a "for sale" sign on the property - we had not been warned that someone would be on the premises while our belongings were there, unsupervised. a simple phone call would have been nice.
we have a long history of renting and not once have we ever had a problem. not once have we been treated this way. shawn/brian: I went out of my way to meet you briefly; i bought coffee from you. I wanted to happily meet your acquaintance. people do not deserve to be treated the way you treated us.

Owner's Response: We have been doing vacation rentals for over 10 years now. It does not make good business sense to withhold a renter's damage deposit unless there truely was damaged caused by the renters as we welcome back repeat business. We personally cleaned this house ourselves this year. The house was always spotless upon a renter's arrival. Not only did this couple damage our coffee table they left the house an absolute mess and did not follow our check-out instructions. This couple was informed immediately via email about the damage we found and the dirty condition the house was left in. This couple emailed us back and denied all of it. Now they are obviously trying to paint a bad pictures of our property instead of taking responsibilty for their actions. Regaring the real estate sign. A sign was put at the edge of the property at the road. The renters makes it sound like someone was roaming the property and entered the house while they were away.

We do wish this couple all the best, however, we would not invite them back to any of our rental properties.
