About the neighbourhood
We are located on beautiful Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. Bass Harbor is on the 'quiet side' of the island. We are less than five minutes from a number of park attractions, including the Bass Harbor lighthouse, Ship Harbor, Wonderland., and the ferry to Swans Island. You can also kayak from our property into the gorgeous Bass Harbor Marsh. We are five minutes from the town of Southwest Harbor and ten minutes from Echo Lake. The Island Explorer bus, which provides free transportation all over the island will stop at our driveway. All other features of the park are no more than a half hour from the Gary Barn.
