I honestly can't say enough about Bass Cottage Inn - everything about our experience there just blew me away.
The Inn itself is gorgeous. It has a nice, cozy "cottage" feel to it - lots of warm wood, leather furniture, hardwood floors, cute antiques, etc. - but the best thing is that everything is actually very new and modern. No gross sofas, smelly sheets or broken bathroom fixtures! It feels luxurious while still suiting the Bar Harbor milieu perfectly.
Our stay was at the very end of the season so the Inn's in-house restaurant was closed for dinner, but we still had the most scrumptious breakfasts every morning, everything homemade with the best ingredients, lots of flavor and variety.
The best thing about this Inn though has to be its hospitality. Terry and Jeff (the couple that owns and runs the place) were the most thoughtful, attentive hosts and made you feel like everything was being effortlessly taken care of: perfect dinner recommendations and made the reservations for you, best tips on where to walk/hike on the island depending on the type of day you're looking for, free coffee/tea/soft drinks/cookies every day to come home to after an afternoon in Acadia, etc. They made you feel like royalty.
My husband and I came here on our honeymoon, and we had just the best time at the Inn!
