The Seamist Cottage is a cute, quiet, and comfortable cottage in Bass Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at The Seamist Cottage early in the season (the week before Memorial Day). We enjoyed the "Quiet Side" of the Island, and did not mind the drive to the other side. The Cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Current trail books and maps were on the coffee table and available for us to use and we found them very helpful.

Thanks, Robin and Marc, for your attention to detail!

Cozy, convenient, and cost-effective!

  • 4 of 5

The Seamist apartment is comfortable and well-decorated. It is in a quiet location, and Robin ensured we had everything that we needed. She supplied shampoo/conditoner, towels (including large beach ones), plates, utensils, tupperware, microwave, oven, glasses, washer/dryer with detergent, etc.

The location was quite convenient to the national park.

Our favorite feature was the jacuzzi tub! It was such a pleasure to use after long hikes around the island. The bedroom had a pretty skylight, and all of the windows/skylight had effective light-blocking shades. We slept well every night.

The only thing that we struggled with were the stairs inside the apartment. We aren't the fittest individuals, and stairs usually aren't a problem for us; however, the apartment stairs (for some reason) made our knees hurt, going up and down. They may be a little taller, wider than what were used to. Not sure. It didn't stop us from having a good stay, though.

Perfectly fits the bill -- for two!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully-designed and tastefully-arranged small apartment at the rear of the pictured house. This lovely location, off the beaten track, was relaxing and conducive to spending every day possible at Acadia.

The apartment was spotless and many small amenities were thoughtfully provided: coffee and filters, popcorn and an extra toothbrush. The description is accurate ... it's about a half hour from the park, a lovely drive through many beautiful parts of the island. We were able to watch the lunar eclipse from a nearby pier and snap incredible shots.

The owner responded immediately to internet problems and replaced the router entirely. No Netflix problems thereafter. We enjoyed Thurston's Lobster Pound nearby, but also cooked in a lot -- all necessary pots and dishware were available. We would stay there again -- in a heartbeat.

Seniors Checking Off Bucket List Travel

  • 5 of 5

We selected this Cottage based in the description and pics. We were not disappointed in the Cottage. It was roomy and comfortable. All the basics were there, even coffee & tea to start the day. When we had questions, Robin was prompt to give us information. We loved being on Mount Desert Location, but the location and atmosphere in Bass Harbor was just what we were looking for. Lots of opportunity to explore and to just enjoy down time reading & relaxing.

Quiet, relaxing, peaceful and private - perfect launching point for MDI

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property in a fantastic place. The little cottage is cozy with everything you'll need - the bed is very comfortable and so is the sofa. The views out of every window are stunning! Everything was clean and ready for my arrival and the owners provided a tip sheet that had excellent suggestions for what to see and do in MDI. several of those were new to me (ladders hike @ echo lake and the azela gardens) and were my favorite things to do! This little spot has easy access to bar harbor and all of Acadia, but some of the best food, hikes, and scenery is right there in Bass Harbor .... Including being able to walk to the lighthouse, ships harbor and wonderland!

Comfortable and Cozy Bass Harbor Cottage for Two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying in this cozy, comfy, clean and well appointed apartment. The photos represent the the cottage accurately and the bedroom upstairs is bright with a skylight over the comfortable bed that we enjoyed for fresh air and a birds eye view of the fall foliage. There was plenty of closet and drawer space to settle in for the week. The cottage is in a quiet, wooded setting removed from the bustle of Bar Harbor. We cooked frequently and found all we needed. Loved soaking in the jet whirlpool tub at the end of those cliff hikes. Soothed both the nerves and the back. I had the pleasure of meeting Robin. She was accommodating while respecting privacy. Our email correspondences prior to arrival and the on-site literature were so helpful in exploring and enjoying the area. If we return to that area we would definitely reserve the Seamist again. The cottage is perfect for two.
