About the property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

Recently finished home on wooded, residential road in Bass Harbor, on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island (renovations completed spring 2012). Home has a great layout and comfortably accommodates a large family, two families, or several couples. The kitchen, appliances, bathrooms, fixtures, and many furnishings are brand new. A gas fireplace in the living room can take the chill off a Maine morning or evening. Bedrooms include a king-sized master with private bath, queen-sized bedroom, and a bunk room which sleeps 4. There is a front porch and large rear deck off the kitchen. The home is tastefully decorated and well-appointed. The owners have young children and are happy to accommodate yours. Pets negotiable.

Come visit all that Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer, while enjoying spacious, comfortable accommodations at this beautiful cottage in the woods.

The first level open floor plan includes a tiled entryway, half bath, kitchen with breakfast bar and seating for 4, dining room with seating for 6, den/family room, and living room with a gas fireplace. There are three bedrooms upstairs, including a master bedroom with king bed, walk-in closet, and private bath. The master bath features a double granite vanity, tile shower and separate soaking tub. Also upstairs you will find a queen-sized bedroom and a large bunk-room with two sets of bunk beds to sleep four. Downstairs, the living room can accommodate two additional guests. Options include a queen-sized sofabed and a twin-sized pull-out chair-and-a-half. The home can accommodate a maximum of 10 people, but more comfortably 8. Mattresses and bed linens are all new. There is another full-sized bathroom in the upstairs hallway. Both upstairs bathrooms feature tile floors with radiant heat. The home has hardwood floors throughout, and the first floor also has radiant heat (a benefit for chilly spring and fall visits). A portable crib, high chair, and other baby and child items are available upon request. Please contact owner with your special needs.

Owners also have a smaller rental property in Southwest Harbor, new to the market for Summer 2014. Please view listing #3766383 for more information about that property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to sincerely thank you for making this rental available to us. There were so many to choose from, but we certainly believe we made the best choice. The home is spacious, has what we need, and is warm and inviting. We had a great time spending our days hiking and sight-seeing. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are awesome places, and Bass Harbor is very quaint. The area is very quiet, which is so very different from Orlando, FL. Thanks for everything, and when we come back we will be calling to see if this place is available. Good luck this winter.

Wonderful time. We originally wanted to stay in Bar Harbor but we're so glad we didn't. This place afforded us a great locatiin, many excellent restaurants and best of all, no crowds and tee shirt shops. Would not hesitate recommending this home.

Great spacious house. Enjoyed our stay it gave us a quiet place to unwind.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, neat and clean. For 4 adults the house was spacious and would have been able to fit a whole family with the bunk room that slept 4. Having a house setting to stay was a great break from hotels.

Comfy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay in Bass Harbor! From the minute we walked in, it felt like a home you could relax in. The kitchen is very well stocked, bright and inviting. Both the front and back porches had great furniture and views that made you want to get outdoors. All of the linens were of the best quality and the house was very clean. We had my 18 month old son with us and house was very kid friendly even though it had stairs! There was even puzzles and books for him. We wished we could have stayed longer and Maria was very attentive and helpful!

Wonderful house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

House is beautifully decorated and very homey. We saw turkeys and deer in the mornings and sitting out on the back deck enjoying nature was wonderful. Close to hiking trails and a beautiful drive over to Acadia National Park. Great location!

Wonderful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, comfortable house in a beautiful setting. The owners were responsive to my texts when we had Internet issues. There are good restaurants and areas to explore nearby and it is an easy drive to Acadia and to Bar Harbor. Be sure to take the nature cruise located a mile from the house. We had a lovely time..
