This vacation property has a 'Maine House' and 'Lobster Cottage'. The property is 3.5 acres located on the shores at the top of Bass Harbor.
Maine House is approximately 2,900 sq feet and sleeps 12 people. Lobster Cottage is a separate cabin on the same 3.5 acre property as Maine House. Lobster Cottage sleeps 5-7 people.
Weekly rate of $2,400 is for Maine House only. Maine House is $2,400/wk, Lobster Cottage is $1,500/wk or together they are $3,400/wk.
Bass Harbor is on the Quiet Side of Mount Desert Island. While you have access within 10 minutes to restaurants, shops, attractions and Acadia National Park, you will not be in the middle of tourists in Bar Harbor or the Park Loop Road. Of course, you'll still want to check out what the whole island has to offer, and everything is within 25/30 mins of our place.
"What a wonderful home you've made here in Bass Harbor!... Lobster [Cottage] was a great home-away-from-home for our family of five. Spacious, comfortable, and cheerful - and a great view too!"
This is a comfortable place to stay with a large family. Our kids ages 2 - 9 had a great time playing in the yard. The house has many board games for a rainy day. The house is in a great location with a pretty morning view.
We loved your house and the location was perfect for everything we wanted to do! Everything was beautiful, clean, and well organized -- especially welcoming when we arrived at 1 a.m.! We had plenty of space for our kids and ourselves. Our family owned a farm near Chautauqua, New York, for many years and your house and property reminded all of us of the fun we used to have there, so we felt quite at home! The kids went kayaking from your property and had a blast and we also enjoyed campfires, watching the stars, and s'mores from your fire pit. It was very easy to get to Acadia and Bar Harbor and we really appreciated all the brochures and maps to help us get around. We spent some part of every day in Acadia, either hiking, biking, or kayaking and visited Bar Harbor four or five times. We enjoyed dinner in Southwest Harbor (although I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the restaurant -- it was on the right side of the road) and my sister-in-law bought a blueberry pie from the bakery there to celebrate my birthday (it was delicious!). We had a fantastic shoreside lobster dinner at Abel's after church on Saturday night and the kids (all high school and college age) ate BBQ and played mini golf in Bar Harbor while my sister-in-law and I had a quiet dinner in Bar Harbor and went to a book signing at the bookstore there. Some of our favorite hikes were Wonder Land, Gorham Mountain, the Bubble, Thunder Hole, and the view of the stars from the top of Cadillac Mountain was fantastic. From the first day, we were all in love with Maine and your house, so of course, we would love to come back one day. Thank you so much for our wonderful week!
Our extended family of 12 enjoyed a very pleasant week in Maine House and Lobster Cottage located in Bass Harbor. The property was clean, comfortable and well outfitted reflecting the fact that the owners and their family use the property themselves, it is not just a rental . It is located in a quiet area , on the water about a ten minute drive from the village of Southwest Harbor where there are stores, including groceries, and restaurants. There is also a fine seafood restaurant right in Bass Harbor. The property is a 30 minute drive from Bar Harbor and the entrance to the Acadia Park and Loop Road.
My girlfriends and our husbands had a wonderful time on our first visit to Maine. The house was beautiful!! It was well equipped with everything we needed. We hiked up Cadillac Mountain (quite a challenge), walked along the ocean, kayaked on Long Pond (which I would recommend for young & old) and rented bikes from Acadia bike rentals and rode along the Carriage Path. (My bike had a tire blow right near the stables and they brought me a replacement bike within 30 minutes). The food was excellent in both Bar and Bass Harbor( tried lobster rolls for the first time). We bought fresh lobster from the dock in Bass Harbor(much cheaper) and had a wonderful dinner at the house! The scenery was gorgeous, just like I imagined. This is a trip we will never forget! Thank you for sharing your home!
I have a troop of Girl Scouts (Junior High to High School aged) who saved for two years to travel to Maine. I submitted several requests through agencies explaining we were a group of older girl scouts traveling. Many properties were not interested in having a group of girls stay. Natascha was so excited to have us, kept sending us tips and info of places to check out! It was nice to feel relaxed about the place we were calling home for the week. The house excellent for 8 teenage girls and 3 adults - the bathroom with every bedroom definitely kept the peace between everyone for the week. It was a magical trip for all of us - we explored the island, got to do some volunteer work in Acadia, and were out to dinner every night! Thurston's, Grumpy's, and Little Notch Bakery were minutes from the house and excellent! Even though our goal is to explore new places each trip, there was much talk about coming back to that house again - not area - house again! It's a beautiful property with many possibilities! Thank you Natascha!!
We brought our family of 9 and stayed for a week and absolutely loved it! Our son caught striped bass right from the yard (delicious!), we played croquet and soccer, went running to the light house, and took several day trips. We loved having the yard to play in and the harbor to explore. The kayaks were used every evening....where we followed eagles and the kids mucked around at low tide and found all sorts of treasures. We will always cherish our time there.
