This room was just as described. It's in a B&B under 2 miles from the Bass Lighthouse and close to Southwest Harbor. It was simple, with lovely grounds right on the water where you can experience the awesome tidal changes. The place is quiet - if you're looking for a more social experience (or interactions with host) this may not be the best pick.

Quaint home on the "quiet side" of the island. Convenient location to the quiet side park activities.

Great location on Acadia. Away from the hubbub but within driving distance to everywhere! Totally worth it!

I had such a wonderful experience at Mel's place. The room was clean, private, and just overall very cute! She even accommodated our request for an earlier check in because of our crazy schedule that day. The view was wonderful and it was pleasantly quiet around the area. It was a pleasure to stay in Bass Harbor!

This was a nice quiet spot. We were glad to find a place on the actual island.

The accommodation is ideal for exploring the Acadia National Park and Mount Desert island, it is in a quiet area of the island with lovely bays and lakes close by. The room was very comfortable and charming, cool when hot and a cosy fire when cool. At the back of the house there is a delightful view across the bay. Southwest Harbor was lovely for breakfast, 10 min drive. Good restaurants and lobster shacks were within easy driving distance.
