The Bass Cottage inn was a fantastic place to stay. Very convenient to everything downtown still keeping the feel of a quiet place to stay off Main street. The inn keepers were more then friendly and very accommodating. The inn was very clean with great class. I will definitely be back and would recommend this place to anybody. Don't forget the warm chocolate chip cookies and sweets they put out every afternoon.

We spent several wonderful days at Bass Cottage. Hosts Terri and Jeff are the most gracious, friendly innkeepers you could imagine. Every detail is tended to. Breakfasts are amazing. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They are also so knowledgeable about the area and all of their recommendations were superior. We can't wait to return for another stay there. You simply have to stay at the Bass Cottage Inn!

I read many wonderful reviews on the Bass Cottage Inn before making our reservation, and I was not disappointed! Everything about the Inn was perfect. The breakfasts were delicious and served by very delightful staff. Jeff and Terry could not have been friendlier or easier to talk to. Our room was gorgeous, immaculate, and so comfortable. There were many wonderful special little touches. We most definitely recommend staying at this Inn!

We stayed at the Bass Cottage Inn for our honeymoon in Oct as a base to explore Acadia National Park. It was a wonderful inn, the owners were very helpful, you were made to feel completely at home in the inn, we loved the 'pantry' with delicious homemade cakes and drinks in the afternoons. Breakfasts were really tasty - we had some of the best breakfasts of our trip here, and vegetarians well catered for. We stayed in room 1, which is actually downstairs on the main floor, which meant that it was slightly less private but it wasn't too much of a problem, and had a lovely fire in the room. The inn is in the middle of town so an ideal location. Would definitely recommend to all.

Comfy and Cozy

Jeff and Teri were amazing hosts for our stay at the Bass Cottage Inn. We were drawn in by the comfortable room and cozy decor. The small touches in the room along with the treats in the pantry made our stay perfect! The breakfast was amazing and the fireplaces kept us warm on a chilly October day! We can't wait to come back next year and spend more time at the Inn.

We stayed at the Bass Cottage Inn for two nights in Mid-October for our mini-honeymoon. It is the perfect time of year to visit Bar Harbor because it isn't wall to wall people. Our stay was wonderful. From the minute we walked in until the minute we left, we were made to feel at home. The inn has thought of everything. From a gourmet breakfast to snacks all day, it was a truly relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. The inn keepers, Jeff and Terry were extremely helpful in giving suggestions on things to do. The room was extremely clean, perfectly decorated, and very cozy. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful weekend at Bass Cottage Inn

Bass Cottage Inn is a lovely in right in Bar Harbor. The Inn was just as pictured but even better! The owners were amazing and served an outstanding breakfast each morning. Rooms all through out the inn we're comfortable and yet luxurious at the same time! Bass Harbor's location is perfect for exploring the town and close to Acadia Mountain. Can't wait to go back sometime!!
