On the quiet-side of Mount Desert in quaint little town of Bernard on Bass Harbor. In walking distance to Thurston's, best lobsters on Island! Close to Acadia/hiking, boating, biking and gorgeous vistas/sunsets. Short drive to Bar Harbor.
These two bedrooms are located on the second floor of our home. You have a separate entrance to access your rooms that is occasionally used to access the other bedroom downstairs. Your private bathroom and breakfast nook are also located upstairs next to the bedrooms. The breakfast nook has a coffee maker, microwave and small refrigerator. These comfortable, clean, bright bedrooms are located in the quaint village of Bernard in walking distance to Bass Harbor (picturesque fishing harbor), Thurston's (lobster pound and restaurant), and back beach (beautiful rocky shoreline good for a refreshing dip).
Separate entrance to upstair bedrooms. The stairs to the upstairs are rather steep but they are very sturdy and have a solid hardwood rail to hold onto while climbing them. Children may need some hand holding while going up the stairs.
Interaction with guests
We will generally be around the house while you are here, but you will have the upstairs of the house to yourself. We can provide fresh lobster dinners. Details below. We provide coffee, tea, and small breakfast items in the breakfast nook and serve fresh blueberry muffins in the morning. We are happy to provide recommendations on local restaurants, nearby hikes, and good spots for swimming. We have bikes you can borrow to ride around the area.
Other things to note
The Lobster dinners include 11/4 lb lobster served with lemon butter, corn souffle or corn on the cob, green salad, and blueberry crisp for desert. The cost is $30 and we need one day notice if you are interested. Jim is an expert at cooking lobsters and they are delicious! We will teach you how to eat them if you have never had one.
Jim managed restaurants and the private/corporate events at the Fox Theater in Atlanta for many years. He has worked as a private chef on yachts and can provide delicious meals, including lobster dinners, upon request. He has retired to Bernard with his wife Ginny who is an accomplished artist and former nurse. Ginny and Jim love giving tours around Mount Desert Island where they have spent many summers since childhood.
