Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on MDI. This location was wonderful. It was clean and well-stocked. The owners had provided information about the island and places to check out while we were there and were very accommodating. The pictures and description of the property were accurate and current. We knew we were there after the regular season, but our time on the island couldn't have been better.

Nice house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and four kids spent a week in August 2015 at Seamist Cottage. The cottage was comfortable, clean, spacious, and provided us with the perfect quiet base from which to explore Acadia.

A lot to like here

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is thoughtfully furnished and equipped for the traveler's comfort. Good beds, charming rooms, Wi-Fi, well stocked kitchen, a week's supply of everything one might need from sunscreen to coffee filters to laundry detergent make it an exceptional value. The thoughtful hostess is nearby to help with any problems. There are a few negatives--house is close to a road so we had to keep our dogs leashed when the front door opened, and there is no water view. However, the level of comfort of this accommodation, in a place with so many wonderful activities, makes this a great vacation place.

Best spot in Bass Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with plenty of room. Kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean. Short walk to the harbor and Seafood Ketch restaurant (awesome place to catch the sunset). In a quiet area of the island but close to points of interest. We enjoy time on the porch and the gas fireplace. I would highly recommend this house.

Superlative Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Four family members and a small dog stayed at Seamist for two weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Seamist home is very comfortable, affordable, well equipped, and seemed like a home away from home. We owe a great debt of gratitude to Robin (owner and manager) as she was very attentive to our every need. Seamist is the perfect distance away from island congestion, but close enough for all activities Acadia Nat'l Park has to offer. I would forever recommend staying here and most certainly we will return.

Bass Harbor Magic

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 friends all 70 and then some. Some of us had been to Bass Harbor before and for others this was a first. The house is charming and very well equipped, beds, kitchen, washer and dryer and best of all a great porch. The owners were most helpful in suggesting not to be missed sites and restaurants. Our favorite morning spot was Common Grounds, they serve the best popovers on the island, and coffee and old fashion oatmeal...not to be missed.

The house allowed each of us together spaces and private space, which was needed for a 2 week vacation with car travel. I will recommend this house to any and all who plan to visit Mt Desert Island and Arcadia National Park.

During the summer there is free bus service on the island and over to Ellsworth so its possible to enjoy Seamist cottage without a car.
