On the shore of Bass Harbor and on the free seasonal Island Explorer Shuttle Bus route, the Bass Harbor Cottages and Country Inn offer a peaceful, private waterfront setting for year round vacation or retreat. Located on the ‘quietside’ of Mount Desert Island and on the outskirts of Bass Harbor Village, our harbor-side cottages have spectacular views of the water from a country-garden setting. The Cottages overlook Bass Harbor and have decks, queen beds, fireplaces, saunas, living areas, full kitchens and television. The Country Inn is reminiscent of a by-gone era and offers comfortable rooms with queen beds, in-room refrigerators, in-room coffee and private baths. One room has a private entrance from the porch overlooking Bass Harbor. Fireplaces, seasonal a c, television and a full kitchen with sitting area are also available.
