Property Description:

From the heart of Mount Desert Island's western side, this inviting waterfront cottage located on the main road leading to and from the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse offers picturesque views of Bass Harbor and the outer islands. Thoughtfully designed and decorated, Seascape reflects the Island's rustic sophistication by merging modern comforts with island charm through unique architectural features, antique furnishings, bright living spaces and custom woodwork. From Adirondack chairs set upon the seawall, watch local lobstermen and the ferry to Swans Island come and go or nestle into cozy window seats inside with a cup of coffee and a good book. For a more active outdoor experience, launch a kayak from the water's edge to explore the coves of Bernard and Bass Harbor or venture to one of the western hiking trails of Acadia. The bustling village of Southwest Harbor, the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and Thurston's Lobster Pound are also close by, and the rest of the Island is easily accessible by car or via the free Island Explorer Shuttle.

About this area:

The 'quiet side' of Mt. Desert Island, which includes Bass Harbor, Tremont, Seal Cove, and Bernard on the southern and western sides of the island, is much more rural in nature and only about twenty to thirty minutes to major park entrances. What Bass Harbor lacks in shopping, it makes up for in seafood restaurants and local color, as this is a village with a true 'Down East' flavor, as well as the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

We loved our week away and wished we could have stayed for another. The cottage was all we needed; well stocked, great location. Super comfortable and made us feel like we were home. We can't wait to return !!!

We had a truly wonderful holiday. The property was so well equipped and had a real wow factor. The boys had a fabulous time canoeing. Sunset at Bass Harbor lighthouse and visiting the shoreline were highlights. Loved Echo Lake, nature obsessed child chased garter snakes. Two great afternoons at the beach exploring rock pools.
