Who said this anyway? And why must it be so?? I supose the reality of the end of a wonderful adventure is not only inenviable but does leave one so grateful for haveing had the adventure and yet hopeful that there will be more to come.

... all changed and left the trees, the scenery was still amazing. Once up at the top, you can climb down on the rocks and also visit the gift shop to take a souvenir home to your friends and family members. The view from the top of the mountain is simply amazing. If it is a clear day, you can see way out into the ocean as well as all around Mount Desert Island. It is so beautiful. Whether you drive or hike to the top of Cadillac Mountain, ...

We awoke refreshed and doubled back to visit Penobscot Narrows bridge and observatory. The bridge is a modern technical and architectural marvel. I'm not technical or architectural so I won't even attempt to explain why. I'm sure ...
We got up extremely early this morning because we wanted to watch the sunrise at a place called the Cadillac Mountains. The mountain ranges are 5-6 miles from Bar Harbor and we were close enough to either walk or drive. When the sunrise was over, we got back in the car and went out for breakfast. When we finished eating, we went back to the car and headed home. We freshened up, then some of us went to the harbor to find out information about ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bass Cottage Inn Bar Harbor
Wonderful stay at Bass Cottage Inn
Our three-night stay at the Bass Cottage Inn was simply wonderful. The new owners of the Inn have done a terrific job in restoring it - it is 1st class all the way! The common areas of the house are beautiful - the woodwork, furnishings, decorating make it all very special. Each of the guest rooms has it's own special charm. The daily breakfast offerings were out of this world. It's location in the middle of Bar Harbor made it very convenient. All this, combined with competant and very friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. Highly recommended!
Nice People; Great Location
My wife and I lucked out and found the Bass Cottage Inn. The location can't be beat and the owners are wonderful. We liked it because it had more of an "inn" type of feeling than a B&B. The breakfasts were incredible and the advice on places to eat/go was right on. We would stay here a 100 more times if we could.
Raises the bar for Maine bed and breakfasts
We had a wonderful time at this bed and breakfast located on a quiet street walking distance to the town center. Rooms were newly renovated and tastefully furnished. Maine lobster aside, their breakfast was one of the best meals we had in the town. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Bar Harbor next time
We've just spent three nights at the Bass Cottage during a two week trip around New England. It was without doubt the highlight of our trip. Jeff, our host, could not have been more charming or welcoming, and the inn itself was amazingly homely and comfortable.
My husband and I spent our honeymoon here during the last week in August, and had the most wonderful time. This place is amazing, and we felt completely at home. The highlight of every day for us was breakfast, where they served a complete, three-course meal. For starters, there was always some type of baked good (muffin, pastry, etc.), followed by fresh fruit, yogurt, or something similar, and ending with a choice of either pancakes/waffles/french toast or an egg/omelette/scramble-type of entree. The breakfasts were simply out-of-this world.
Had a business trip to Bar Harbor and decided to make it a bit of a vacation also. Could not have picked a better place to stay then the Bass Cottage.
Right in the "downtown" but far enough off the main streets to be private and quiet. Very nice rooms, the common areas of the inn are beautiful and the breakfast is outstanding.
Two VERY nice extras- a wine hour in the evening and a 24 hour "pantry" for the guests with hot and cold drinks and baked goods.
The hosts and staff are friendly and helpful.
Great place to stay
Perfect spot in a perfect place
We stayed four nights in August at this inn and thought it was wonderful. The accomadations and first class and the warmth of the the owners, Terrie and Jeff, and the entire staff makes the stay a memorable one. We woke each day witht certain excitement to see what was on tap for breakfast and were never disappointed by the options. The wine social at the end of the day is a great touch to meet fellow guests and prepare for a night on the town. Bar Harbor is one of our favorite spots anywhere and now the Bass Cottage Inn will be our "go to" spot when we visit.
The absolute best place to stay with the most amazing hosts ever! Every detail was completed to perfection. The owners Teri and Jeff made my boyfriend and I feel as if we were visiting family. The house and the rooms were decorated with such class and style yet mixed with right amount of drama. The Bass Cottage Inn was the most spotless hotel/B+B that I have ever seen. It was as though we were the first people to ever stay in our room. Every detail from the scent of the room and the presentation of the delicious food to the rubber ducky in the bath tube, added to this amazing experience. The Bass Cottage Inn is the only place where we will stay while in Bar Harbor, Maine. I cannot wait to go back in the fall! Thanks Teri, Jeff and the wonderful staff!
I stayed here over the summer, and my only regret is not booking the Inn for a longer stay. The Inn keepers are wonderful people who did a beautiful job restoring the inn. Words can not describe how tastefully done, a credit to both the inn keepers and the skills trade workers.
We are very hard markers but there was no doubt in our minds that this inn deserves a 10 out of 10. Our recent stay at the Bass Cottage Inn was just wonderful. The inn is elegantly furnished and tastefully decorated. We were in comfortable and welcoming surroundings made even more so by the very attentive inn-keepers and their staff. The gourmet breakfasts served in the sun filled dinning room were a delight.
Visiting Acadia National Park and staying at this inn - magnificent experience we hope to do again.
