“Nice and sweet family getaway”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

We stayed in Room 3 for three nights for a family getaway. The room, their largest, is approximately 450 sqft plus a huge, modern, and immaculate bathroom. It accommodates the three of us easily. Teri, the owner, went out of her way to make our stay nice and sweet. She took special care of my dad, which I really appreciated. She brought a pot of hot tea and a tea set to our room for him upon arrival and frequently checked on him at breadfast. Breakfast was prepared with art and passion. The wine and cheese time in the afternoon was also one of the best. We happily cancelled our hiking plan and stayed in on a rainy afternoon. The inn is not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

There is not enough I can say about the Bass Cottage Inn's service and personnel. Clean, elegant, comfortable and homey. I think all of those things are hard to find.

Everyone was so nice and very accommodating to any questions or needs that popped up. You will have no 'wants' at the Inn and even if you can find some type of need I am sure they will be able to fulfill it for you.

The breakfasts were a great start to the day and I did love the "Guest Pantry" where I was able to indulge in my love of coffee and daily snacks.

Aside from what lays within the Inn; the location could not be better. You are in the heart of Bar Harbor and can walk to many, many stores, restaurants, banks, the shoreline within moments. I did enjoy waking up to our view of the ocean out the window.

You won't be taking any chances by going there; you will be thanking both me and yourself.

Room Tip: I am not sure if all the rooms have whirlpool spa tubs but after climbing around in Acadia you will...

We adored our stay at the Bass Cottage Inn. We were welcomed by the friendliest owners and made to feel right at home immediately. It had all the great touches of a cozy, private bed and breakfast, but had the gourmet breakfasts of a five star restaurant. Every morning was started perfectly with a delicous meal and every afternoon held a tasty treat available in the pantry. The rooms were luxurious and comfortable and the staff was so helpful with every question and request. A truly remarkable gem in Bar Harbor and we were so lucky to spend our honeymoon there.

My husband and I went to Bass Cottage Inn at the end of October for a few nights. We have nothing but great things to say about the owners, the atmosphere, and most importantly the breakfast. From the gourmet breakfast every morning to relaxing with wine by one of the many fireplaces at night, we highly recommend Bass Cottage Inn!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 and loved it.

I can't say enough about the Bass Cottage Inn - it was truly perfection! We honeymooned along the coast of Maine this past October and stayed at 3 B&Bs along the way - the Bass was BY FAR our fave. The innkeepers, Teri & Jeff, set a perfect tone of friendliness, warmth and unobtrusiveness. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable and the common areas were gorgeous and inviting. And the breakfasts were incredible - the best food we had during our entire 10 day visit to Maine. The proximity to town also makes this a perfect choice. My only regret is that we weren't able to meet the Jeff & Teri's beloved Airedale Terrier - maybe next time?? Cheers & Thx to a fabulous couple!!
