We had a great stay at Joan's property! It's a cozy little place with all the amenities to meet our needs. We enjoyed staying away from the hustle and bustle of busy Bar Harbor. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset over the harbor. Seafood Ketch restaurant is a short walk from the property and has delicious food!

Perfect setting on the quiet side!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to MDI many times but never rented a house, mostly camped and stayed in B&Bs. Since we were traveling with our 3 month old baby, we decided renting a house would be a good option this time. We couldn't be happier that we chose this beautiful property!! Joan is very nice and knowledgeable, and the house was so charming. The first night we pulled up there was the most incredible sunset happening over the harbor, which happens to be your view from the front porch! The kitchen was supplied with anything you would need to cook or make coffee, and there is a delicious seafood restaurant on the dock within walking distance. You're close to a lot of Acadia gems like Seawall, Echo Lake, Wonderland and the Bass Harbor light house, but away from the bustle of Bar Harbor. Joan set the bar very high, we will definitely be looking to stay at her wonderful rental in the future!!

Bass Harbor Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure. Beautiful townhouse with direct views of the harbor. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the porch. Joan is a wonderful hostess and lives in the attached home next door. It takes about 30 minutes to get to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This is a very quiet and peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor.

Clean and cozy

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our four days here in Bass Harbor! Joan was right about the sunset! We had a couple of days of fog and sprinkling and therefore didn't have the clear skies to see the sunset in Bass Harbor until our last night when we were blessed with an amazing sunset! Absolutely stunning! We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Mt. Desert Island area and Acadia National Park. Joan was very friendly and welcoming. The place was clean and cozy and comfortable and suited our needs well. Thanks Joan!

Wonderful, comfy, relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

Love this property. Immaculate, comfortable, little slice of heaven. Joan is a wonderful island resident with great knowledge of the area. House has everything you need. We went for a couples weekend and loved it from the minute we opened the door. House is a older home with historical ties to the area Completely renovated, charming, homey and just lovely.. Loved the bedrooms, very comfortable, kitchen and bathroom are renovated and have everything you need... Close to all, ferry, lighthouses, and Bar harbor. We can't wait to go back!!!❤ absolutely loved by all!!! Excellent property. Owner shows pride in her property...

Bright, beautiful and serene

  • 4 of 5

Amazing little place right near the water! Loved the colors of the house, not a huge fan of the only bathroom was on the first floor, along with the only heater but there were some cozy warm blankets to keep us warm.

Great get away spot for solitude, perfect for our honeymoon love cottage!!
