Great escape with fireplace
Loved the fireplace
Nice little place and great location for access to Acadia Park
Thanks! We hope you will come again and stay longer!
It's a beautiful spot with lovely landlords. I definitely want to come back :)
Peaceful and lovely
It was exactly as pictured, but even better. Just a beautiful spot, and the cottage was clean, cozy and quiet. There are a number of beautiful trails and other sights nearby, and a fantastic cheesecake spot that's a little more of a drive but absolutely worth it. Would absolutely stay again!
Thanks so much for your comments! It was a pleasure to have you here and we do hope you sill come again!
the cottage was as described. Eleanor was helpful in giving advice about the area. we had difficulty with TV one day, the next day all was fine. Wifi is not terribly fast, but reliable. the cottage is 1/2 block away from working lobster wharf - nice area (but about 30 minutes from main Acadia NP).All in all a relaxing stay.
Second time staying!!
We've stayed here twice now and both times have been great! It was a short stay but the cottage is cozy and clean and soo comfortable. Eleanor was very nice and greeted us when we got there and gave us some firewood for a cozy fireplace since it was a little chilly that weekend! We hope to come back in the future!
The Gables is located in the quiet fishing village of Bass Harbor and the attractions of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are close at hand. The Bass Harbor lighthouse is nearby and two short and extremely scenic Park walks are just a few minutes' drive away. There are tidal pools that youngsters can spend hours exploring.. A 20 minute drive takes you to the entrance of the Park where you can drive up Cadillac Mtn. take the Park Loop road or go for tea and popovers at the famous Jordan Pond House. Bar Harbor's shopping and restaurants await you and the Cottage is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.
