Overview

Bass Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

Recently finished home on wooded, residential road in Bass Harbor, on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island (renovations completed spring 2012). Home has a great layout and comfortably accommodates a large family, two families, or several couples. The kitchen, appliances, bathrooms, fixtures, and many furnishings are brand new. A gas fireplace in the living room can take the chill off a Maine morning or evening. Bedrooms include a king-sized master with private bath, queen-sized bedroom, and a bunk room which sleeps 4. There is a front porch and large rear deck off the kitchen. The home is tastefully decorated and well-appointed. The owners have young children and are happy to accommodate yours. Pets negotiable.

Come visit all that Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer, while enjoying spacious, comfortable accommodations at this beautiful cottage in the woods.

The first level open floor plan includes a tiled entryway, half bath, kitchen with breakfast bar and seating for 4, dining room with seating for 6, den/family room, and living room with a gas fireplace. There are three bedrooms upstairs, including a master bedroom with king bed, walk-in closet, and private bath. The master bath features a double granite vanity, tile shower and separate soaking tub. Also upstairs you will find a queen-sized bedroom and a large bunk-room with two sets of bunk beds to sleep four. Downstairs, the living room can accommodate two additional guests. Options include a queen-sized sofabed and a twin-sized pull-out chair-and-a-half. The home can accommodate a maximum of 10 people, but more comfortably 8. Mattresses and bed linens are all new. There is another full-sized bathroom in the upstairs hallway. Both upstairs bathrooms feature tile floors with radiant heat. The home has hardwood floors throughout, and the first floor also has radiant heat (a benefit for chilly spring and fall visits). A portable crib, high chair, and other baby and child items are available upon request. Please contact owner with your special needs.

Owners also have a smaller rental property in Southwest Harbor, new to the market for Summer 2014. Please view listing #3766383 for more information about that property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to sincerely thank you for making this rental available to us. There were so many to choose from, but we certainly believe we made the best choice. The home is spacious, has what we need, and is warm and inviting. We had a great time spending our days hiking and sight-seeing. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are awesome places, and Bass Harbor is very quaint. The area is very quiet, which is so very different from Orlando, FL. Thanks for everything, and when we come back we will be calling to see if this place is available. Good luck this winter.

Phenomenal

  • 5 of 5
Even better than the pictures if you can believe it. This is by far the nicest rental property I've stayed in. It's clean, comfortable, private, spacious, nicely decorated, and a great home design that makes you feel like you're in the middle of the forest through its many windows. After walking in and seeing the downstairs, my wife and I each independently had the same thought ... wow, we could really see ourselves living in a house like this all the time. Initially I was torn between booking our stay at this property and a lesser one with an ocean view. I definitely made the right choice.

It's a quick walk down the street to Bass Harbor, less than a 10 minute drive from Southwest Harbor where there are several good places to eat, and about 30 minutes from Bar Harbor. While it's not right in the middle of the action and not immediately adjacent to Acadia, we found the location to be great for our needs. A 15 minute drive and I was hiking on amazing trails in the park every morning. Visiting in the fall was an extra treat as the colored leaves were really going off during our visit. The one day we spent (off season) in Bar Harbor, I was surprised by the crowds due to the cruise ships that port there on a regular basis. I would NOT want to stay there if visiting Acadia. Bass Harbor fit the bill.

Maria was very easy to work with. I certainly will look to stay at this property the next time I visit the area. I'll soon be needing another fix of lobster!

Rocky start, but good overall

  • 4 of 5
When we arrived on the first night of our stay, the house was locked up with no lights on. After a few phone calls and a 30 minute wait, things got cleared up and the owner came with a key. After that, everything was great. The house is beautiful with all the comforts of home. It was nice to stay on the "quiet side" of the island.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great! It had all the comforts of home. The house had everything you needed to entertain small children.
The location was great, a quick walk to the bay, tide pooling and to the bus shuttle to take you into Acadia.
The owners have put a lot of hard work into making this such a nice vacation rental! Thanks for helping make our vacation so enjoyable.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a fantastic week in Bass Harbor, and this home was the perfect place for our stay. The house is spacious and comfortable and provided all the amenties needed for a great week. The location was just what we were looking for. Staying on the "quiet" side of MDI away from the crowds, while being only a short drive from Bar Harbor or the main sections of ANP was the best of both worlds. Additionally, the "quiet" side provided quick access to some of Acadia's lesser visited sights and trails. After days of hiking, biking and kayaking, it was great to come back to the home, utilizing the grill or the giant lobster pot with all the needed utensils and enjoy the quiet solitude that the back deck provided. Additionally, Maria was very readily available w/ helpful recommendations for where to rent bikes and kayaks, as well as answering other questions about MDI.

We enjoyed the quaint downtown area of Bass Harbor and Southwest Harbor and the peacefulness this side of the island provided. We highly recommend Bass Harbor Cottage!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Last Christmas, my husband and I were looking to take our first family vacation with our 8 month old son. We really liked the idea of Maine, and started looking around. We found this house and signed up to stay. What a good decision! This home was beautiful! It is settled in an area that is quiet enough to give you peace and family time, but close to many fun things, like Acadia! We had so much fun cooking in the updated kitchen, sitting by the warm gas fireplace talking and doing puzzles, and enjoying being away as a family. Maria and Ryan were fantastic hosts! They were accommodating, helpful, and a delight to work with; we would certainly rent from them again! All in all, we had a wonderful trip and a perfect family vacation!

Amazing Setting

  • 5 of 5
Maria and Ryan are wonderful hosts and are very helpful with recommendations (restaurants, shops and places to see) and answering all your questions. I would recommend this wonderful home to anyone looking for a very clean, spacious and comfortable place to stay. The surroundings are beautiful.

We enjoyed visiting Acadia National Park, Seal Cove Auto Museum, Bar Harbor (including a lighthouse boat tour), Fort Knox Observatory in Bucksport (amazing) and visiting the other quaint places in the area. We did not meet an unfriendly person. The food was superb everywhere we ate. Had our first lobster dinner, which was delicious, and enjoyed our first popovers at Jordan Pond House in Acadia. Even the pizza from McKinley Market, within a mile from the cottage, was delicious!

Simply put--AMAZING PLACE!
