LITTLE ISLAND HOUSE IN BASS HARBOR

Bass Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Little Island House is a two-apartment seasonal rental. The Upstairs apt. has one bedroom with a queen-size bed, bath with shower, comfortable kitchen-- well supplied (no dishwasher), living & dining room area with large granite fireplace and big window views facing the water. The Downstairs apt. has two bedrooms, one with queen size bed, the other with twin beds. Kitchen and living room with fireplace have lovely views of harbor and mountains. Large decks both Up & Down.

Both apartments have central heat for the off season, excellent ventilation in summer, and all the firewood you'd like. Also: cable TV, phone, wifi, all linens (bed, bath, and kitchen), well-equipped kitchens. Immaculately clean, lovely decor. Outdoors: deck furniture and grill; a rowboat is at the dock for your pleasure anytime. No smoking, no pets.

Upstairs and Downstairs, separate apts.: The Upstairs apartment has a large granite fireplace, cathedral ceiling and skylight in the living/dining areas. Kitchen, bathroom with shower; study area extends your living space. The third floor bedroom, with skylight, has a queen-size bed. From the living room, a sliding glass door opens onto the deck, which extends around the side and front of the house.

The spacious deck of the Downstairs apartment is only a few feet from the water's edge at high tide. The sliding glass door opens into the living room area and fireplace, with kitchen and dining area beyond. The front bedroom has a queen-size bed, and a second bedroom has twin beds; full bath.

Glad to be on 'the quiet side': Views are beautiful. Bass Harbor has been photographed for the cover of a National Geographic book about New England, and has been the site of several movies. The lobster fishing boats are always interesting, and if you love wildlife, we've watched eagles soar past the deck (they frequent the harbor), counted twelve herons in the low tide one September day, and watched loons, ducks, terns and gulls work the harbor.

Although we're only thirty minutes from Bar Harbor, we are essentially very different. Bass Harbor is a small fishing village and working harbor on the southern end of Mount Desert Island. We're called 'The quiet side of the Island.'

There's plenty to do here: The Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Wonderland and Ship Harbor (part of Acadia National Park) are only a mile or two away. At Little Island Marine, the small boatyard which shares the peninsula with the house, the Island Cruise makes nature trips and lunch cruises daily. Restaurants are within easy walking

distance.

We spent two weeks in this lovely rental property. As there were only two of us, we only used the upstairs unit. The little house was beyond our expectations. The view was incredible. 180 degree view of a working lobster harbor. The deck had a perfect view of the sunsets, which were spectacular. The kitchen had everything you could possily want to cook up the local fish, farm veggies and cheese of the local area. The location was on the quiet side of the island, but that was fine with us. Bar Harbor is a short drive to the other side. The unit was very clean and well appointed. The fireplace was wonderful when the temperatures dipped at night. There is a lobster pound right across the harbor in Bernard. You can buy live lobster there and bring it home, or have dinner. A new restaurant called the Lobster Katch is within walking distance. There is a gas station nearby, small grocery just up the road, and a colorful local bar called Nemos very close by. The owners were very friendly and accomodating and also managed the tour boat from the dock. The tour was fantastic. I highly recommend it. Matter of fact, I would recommend this rental to just about anyone. There were only two minor things that were inconvenient. There was no washer or dryer, but doing our laundry in Southwest Harbor just up the road wasn't bad at all. The other was the size of the upstairs bed. It was a double and we are used to a king size, so we were pretty cozy.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: The bed actually is Queen sized.
