About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

On the shore of Bass Harbor, close to Acadia National Park and on the outskirts of Bass Harbor Village, the Carriage House offers a peaceful, private waterfront setting for year round vacation or retreat. Located on the 'quietside' of Mount Desert Island, this cottage has spectacular views of the water - if you watch closely, you may see an eagle on the wing or a seal splashing in the harbor. The free, seasonal Island Explorer Shuttle will help you enjoy the beauty of our small, green island.

The Carriage House is a romantic get-away for hiking, biking, and kayaking through the Park. Popular activities include antiquing, birding, and nature cruises from Bass Harbor, fresh water swimming at Echo Lake, and brisk salt water swimming at Back Beach in Bernard. It is a half hour from whale watches in Bar Harbor and within walking distance of the convenience store, the Post Office, seasonal restaurants, and gift shops. Free in-cottage wifi. Free parking next to the Carriage House.

The Carriage House is available by the week and rates for two in one bedroom range from $999 in April to $1699 in August, based on your bringing your own linen - please add 20% for linen rental. There are additional fees for additional guests in more bedrooms. The Carriage House is available on a daily basis at the 'last minute' and after April. 29, 2018. Looking for something smaller with two beds for two? Try our HomeAway Tapley Suite at the Country Inn.

We live on-site and will be able to help you through-out your stay.
