This home was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. It was quiet and clean. The views from outside were so beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the cottage had everything we expected. The shower got wonderfully hot, which felt so good after a long day of hiking. The seafood restaurant down the street was a great and delicious experience. The wifi was fast. Joan always got back to me through the website and making payment was no problem. There are a few nice hiking paths very closeby and nothing in Acadia was too far away. We would absolutely stay again.
Joan's place in Bass Harbor was the perfect place for our family of 4. We could access Acadia's hiking trails and carriage roads from the 'quiet' side, then retreat to this cozy house. Having a full kitchen is great for making your own breakfast and dinner on both ends of a long day of hiking or biking. There is a good restaurant within walking distance of the house and several dining options (including an ice cream stop) in Southwest Harbor on the drive from Acadia back to Joan's place.
Good quiet location. House was clean and had everything we needed.
Very nice and well maintained cottage. Located in a very scenic and quite part of Mt. Desert Island. The cottage is cozy and with all the needed amenities. Joan is very welcoming and helps to introduce the area and the culture. We will definitely not hesitate to stay at Joan's cottage again!
We had such a wonderful time at Joan's cottage. It is homey and comfortable and had everything we needed. The views were outstanding. And Bass Harbor is much more quaint and less crowded then the rest of MDI.
Joan was very helpful and friendly. She was so easy to deal with and assisted us in any way she could.
Perfect house for those looking for a quiet getaway with beautiful scenery. Located on the quiet side of the island, but easy drive to hiking trails and the busy Bar Harbor if you desire. Restaurant within walking distance and grocery store a short drive away. Joan lives next door and was available for any questions or advice we needed. She even got us fresh lobster that her son caught and taught us how to cook them. If you are looking for a fancy place with constant entertainment around you - this isn't for you. If you prefer a quiet, clean, and cozy house away from all the touristy glitz and glam, then this is perfect for you!
The quiet side of Mount Desert Island .Overlooking the working harbor of Bass Harbor and Bernard. Watch the lobster men with there catch. Watch the seals come up to wharf and eat the bait.
