Bass Harbor, Maine waterfront cottage ~ a tranquil vacation home setting ~Watch the rise and fall of the tides in Bass Harbor as they ripple under the bridge to the Marsh. Multiple views, of this part of Acadia National Park, can be seen from the picture window, the deck, the spacious lawn or the rocky beach.
The ranch style cottage has 2 bedrooms, (1 queen and 1 /2 twin beds) and a sleep sofa in the open living/dining/kitchen area. A full bath is centrally located. A large deck is furnished with a picnic table and chairs plus a gas grill.
Ther are many places to sit and enjoy the cove and the view of Bass Harbor. The Island Explorer can be picked up near by to see Acadia National Park, hands free. The Swan's Island Ferry(a mile away), is another special day trip. Drive right onto the ferry or take your bikes to tour the island. You can observe the working waterfronts at Bass Harbor and Bernard,( just a few miles away), and have lunch or dinner at Thurston's Wharf, Seafood Ketch, Maine-ly De-Lites or Rich's Wharf, while you are there. Fresh lobster right off the boats is a special treat that shouldn't be missed! A nice walk or hike can be found at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Wonderland or Ship Harbor ~ all within a few miles from the cottage. At the end of a busy day, come back down the grassy road to the private comforts of the Cottage at Hackmatack Cove ~
