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.

The space

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).

Guest access

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.

Wonderful spot with great hosts. The blueberry muffins in the morning aren't a bad addition either.

Nice folks to have as a second home with. If you like well coordinated colorful places and the charm of an old home, this is a great place. Nice people, good MID access and in walking distance of Thurstons.

Great muffins offered by host. Cozy and lovely house with bright and vibrant colorful decorations. The house itself is a picture perfect. 2 min drive to a famous lobster house. Definitely on the quiet side of the island. Restaurants all close at 8 pm. 25-35 min drive to Acadia major trails and attractions. Host was welcoming and gave a nice tour of the house. Only downside was: new mosquito bites every morning. Good stay overall and made awesome memories at Maine.

Loved staying in Jim and Ginny place .The apartment was cozy and very comfortable. Loved the blueberry muffins every morning. Unfortunately because of my daughter busy schedule we had very little time at their house and unable to take advantage of a lobster dinner. I would highly recommend a stay here and hope to visit again.
