On the shore of Bass Harbor, close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, the Bass Harbor Cottages and Country Inn offer a peaceful waterfront setting for year-round vacation or retreat.

Located on the "quietside" of Mount Desert Island and on the outskirts of Bass Harbor Village, the cottages have spectacular views of the water from a country-garden setting. They offer decks, queen beds, fireplaces, a sauna, living areas, full kitchens, and television. The Country Inn is reminiscent of a by-gone era and offers quaint, comfortable guestrooms with queen beds, fireplaces, in-room coffee, in-room refrigerators, a/c, and private baths. Stroll across the lawn as you mosey down to the water's edge -- bring your water shoes and your kayak and launch with the tide!

The Country Inn, built in the late 1800's as a place of respite, presents views of the harbor from the gracious farmer's porch overlooking the gardens. The Inn represents traditional New England architecture and offers three quaint guestrooms furnished with period antiques and braided rugs. Rooms at the Inn are for two guests and have fireplaces, a/c, private baths, queen beds, in-room coffee and in-room refrigerators. Kitchens, flat-screen television, waterview, and twin beds are available. The Inn and premises are smoke-free. Guests enjoy sitting at the shore while watching the sailboats. The staircase leads to the water's edge for brisk high tide wading.

The Carriage House is a private cottage with commanding views across Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay. This cottage offers a second-floor "under the eaves" master bedroom with a balcony and skylights, fireplace, personal skylight sauna, queen bed, flat-screen television, and a shower bath. The first floor has a wharf-style deck overlooking the Harbor, a living area with a fireplace and flat-screen television, two additional guest bedrooms, (one with two doubles beds and the other with one), a full bath, and a contemporary kitchen. The Carriage House can comfortably accommodate six guests and offers kayak launching and storage.

The Pine Cottage sits atop a grassy hill facing Blue Hill Bay and the outer islands - it also overlooks upper Bass Harbor and the setting sun. Quaint and cozy, this traditional "mix and match" cottage is surrounded by pine trees and has a skylight living area with fireplace, flat-screen television, two bedrooms, (one with a double bed and the other with two twin beds), a screened-in porch, full contemporary kitchen, and shower bath. Smoke free and for four guests, the Pine Cottage offers both kayak storage as well as tidal launching, just steps away.

The Boat House Cottage looks out over our cove to Sawyers Island and lobster boats moored on the opposite shore. The Loft, with its panoramic view from the third floor private balcony, has a skylight living area, fireplace and flat-screen television, a full contemporary kitchen, full bath, and a skylight bedroom with a fireplace and a/c. The second-floor Queen Suite features a deck, living area with flat-screen television, one queen bedroom, full contemporary kitchen, and a full bath. The Heron Room has two double beds and is available with either the Queen Suite or The Loft. The Boat House Cottage accommodates two to four guests in separate areas or six in the Loft, Heron Room and Queen Suite..
