Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


Photos and Description of the Bass Harbor vacation house rental

Summer House, 3 BRs, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We call it our cottage but it's really a second home. Enjoy fabulous sunsets from this idyllic coastal cottage situated in one of Maine's most picturesque harbors. . A large screened porch faces west and graces the front of the cottage providing additional space with views of the inner harbor directly out to Blue Hill Bay. Inside you will find a master bedroom with bath and walk-in closet (the bed is queen size with a firm mattress), a living room with harbor views (Large TV with cable and DVD player, radio, and wireless internet access), a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a second bedroom with two single beds, and another room with futon that will comfortably sleep two youngsters. There are fans but a cottage on the ocean usually receives cool ocean breezes so are rarely needed. There is a well equipped kitchen and gas grill in the shed. If you like eating out, there are several nice places nearby. There is a lobster dealer just down the road (less than 1/4 mile). We like to fix our own. Pots for boiling lobster and steaming clams are in the cellar.

The cottage is elevated from the road in front and with landscaping it offers privacy. The front lawn is level.

Bass Harbor Lighthouse is an easy mile walk (one-way) or take a short drive to parking for either the Ship Harbor or the Wonderland trails to take a hike along the shore. Use our hiking guides to find just the right trails in Acadia National Park or just the right bike loops. Bike rentals are available four miles away in Southwest Harbor. Like to kayak? Rentals are available nearby for exploring either lakes, ponds, or the ocean inlets. Guided kayak trips can be arranged in Southwest Harbor. The Island Explorer shuttle stop is a two minute walk.

Weekly rental with arrival and departure on Saturday
