Johns Island is on the first floor of our historic three room Inn and has a farmer's porch with a side-view across Bass Harbor. This room is street side and faces a meadow which is filled with lupines in the spring. Take the staircase to the shore, watch the tide change and look for your favorite shore bird - guillemots, loons and eagles are frequent visitors.

The room we were staying in was fine. But the shower was tiny. So if you are a bit bigger you may have an issue fitting in it! Also if you are on the ground floor be aware that if someone is above you there is a good chance you will hear and feel them walking around on top. Other…

Enjoyed our stay. Very quiet area with easy access to Bass Harbor. Clean and private room. The shower was a bit tight, otherwise nice. Would stay here again!
