About Jeannie Merchant
We purchased 2.5 acres on Bass Harbor in 1974 and built our home and the cottages in the following years adding upgrades and renovations almost yearly. We are native to Mount Desert Island, have 2 grown children and 4 almost grown grandchildren. We enjoy boating the Maine coast, kayaking the local waters and walking the trails of Acadia.

Why Jeannie Merchant chose Bass Harbor
This cottage is all wood, no smelly carpets, is located right at the water's edge on Mill Creek off Bass Harbor and is only 3 miles to down town Southwest Harbor and 20 minutes to down town Bar Harbor. Entrances to Acadia are all around us.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sitting in the swing at the water's edge with morning coffee and again at the end of the day is a peaceful start and ending to every day..

We loved staying here with our small dog. The place is in a nice quiet area but very close to nearby restaurants. We really enjoyed the “quiet side” but within 30 minutes to everything on the island. Was able to take the kayaks out during high tide, the full washer/dryer was a life saver and really had everything you need.
Had a lovely time at the Tides Cottage. It was perfect for our needs and had almost everything we needed. The bed was comfy and having a washer and dryer
Is a bonus.
We had a great time at the Tides Cottage. It was truly amazing to literally watch the tides change throughout the day. This is a great area for hiking and sightseeing. Bar Harbor, good shopping/eating and Cadillac Mountain are a short drive away and provide great scenery. My wife and I loved drinking our coffee and watching out the large front windows overlooking the water. We would highly recommend the Tides Cottage!
Fantastic spot. Very clean. Perfect for four. Had a great time.
Would definitely come back
Peaceful Cabin Retreat
Very clean, comfortable cottage. Perfect place to watch the tides come and go. Close to BarHarbor and a short drive to Bass Harbor Head Light and Seawall. Wish we would have had longer to stay at this beautiful place.
First time Acadia Visit!
Loved the location, being on the bay on the quiet side, the mystery and science of tides, use of the kayak whenever our schedule matched the tides! And especially loved the front deck! Wrapped in an early morning blanket watching the sunrise was absolutely perfect! Fireplace was great but kindling was hard to find at first...
Loved eating at SW and Bass Harbor restaurants!
So much to see and do in Acadia; so thankful we found your spot on VRBO! It was hard to leave~~
