Idyllic 1 BR Oceanfront Apt, close to Bar Harbor
Bass Harbor, Maine
Additional Location Information
The Western side of Mount Desert Island is very accurately referred to as "The Quietside." When the First Family visited MDI several summers ago, the Obamas spent part of their visit here, touring the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse at the end of our road, hiking the nearby Ship Harbor trail and dining at a waterfront restaurant in neighboring Southwest Harbor. Nearby are the Wonderland ocean trail and Seawall picnic area, all part of Acadia National Park.
Bass Harbor has 3 restaurants with water views. Thurston's lobster pound on the Bernard side of Bass Harbor is a wholesale lobster dock that buys daily from local lobstermen. The Swan's Island Ferry and Little Island nature tourboat are a few miles away.
Southwest Harbor is about a 10 minute drive, where one can find more waterfront restaurants and lobster docks. The Library is well stocked. There is a medium size grocery store, as well as a gourmet food store, drug store and two Banks. Fishing, sailing, boat, kayak and bike rentals are available. A mailboat ferries passengers out to the Cranberry Isles several times a day. The picturesque Causeway Club 9 hole golf course welcomes all golfers.
Bar Harbor and the major sections of Acadia National Park are about a 30 minute drive. Most of the Park can be visited via the free Island Explorer bus system. There is a bus stop close to Harbor Reach Farm.
Acadia National Park is the second most visited National Park in the U.S.
