Waterfront vacation home with an outdoor tennis court
Situated on the coastal water, overlooking Bass Harbor's comings and goings of the local lobster men and yachtsmen, this historic village offers Thurston's famous restaurant ,that you can walk to in 3 minutes, a quaint village and private waterfront beach. This home actually sits on the shore of Acadia with its own private beach access. This harbor is famous on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park, for being the most photographed and painted working harbors in Maine. The famous Bass Harbor lighthouse is only 5 minutes away. Bar Harbor is a 15 min drive to the other side of the island. Kayak right from this oceanfront home, or just relax on the many decks and enjoy the view. New to the home is a fire pit and renovated kitchen. Great gourmet kitchen with local granite used. Totally renovated home. Fire-pit, canoe and tandem kayak are also offered ... Lots of decks for your private use .. Private floater on the shore as well for your use- please bring everything back up each night - due to high tides and winds. We offer a fenced in yard for the pups and allow multiple dogs. No cats please. Each dog is the required to pay the fee of 125 each for the entire stay. Multiple dogs discounts offered. Bar Harbor is easy to get to- generally about 15-20 minutes unless behind a lobster boat - or road construction.. This is the quiet side but with alot more to do .. ( since this town is not selling t-shirts ) This oceanfront/shore front home offers beautiful views of Cadillac Mountain and the working harbor all day.

Charming architectural details, attractive furnishings, a fenced in yard, and lovely flowers make this a wonderful spot for your stay. !

5/5 Excellent

    Wonderful home

    The owner went out of her way to be accommodating. The home was very clean and fully stocked. Comfortable master bed with amazing views. I enjoyed watching the fisherman and wildlife from the windows and cooking outside on the wonderful deck. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay my one regret is I didn't stay longer. Highly recommend

      Great location

      Loved this place ; it is even better than the photos.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great stay in Maine!

        First, great location, wonderful views (sunrises in particular), in a working fishing village. The place is great, and we enjoyed ourselves. It was very well stocked, we even had coffee pods for the Keurig provided, as well as real maple syrup which we enjoyed one day (Thank you!). King bed is wonderful/twins are good for kids (2 twins in each bedroom on rollers work fine for kids, but not as great for older adults). Going upstairs may be a little challenging for the elderly, so just beware. Place is well stocked; Leslie was very attentive, and we really enjoyed the town--Lobster nearby, great boat tour as well. Internet works great. Highly recommend! Authentic Maine get-away!!
