Where you’ll be

Tremont, Maine, United States

We are located in the quaint little town of Bernard on Bass Harbor. Bass Harbor, is a fishing village on what is called the “quiet” or “back” side of Mount Desert Island - near Acadia National Park. Bass Harbor is filled with coastal photo opportunities like lobster boats and other yachts, lobster traps and buoys, winding roads, and buildings characteristic of the area. The famous Bass Harbor Head Light is located here on park land a short distance southeast of the harbor. This is one of the most photographed and recognized lighthouses in America. Thurston's Lobster pound and restaurant is a 5 minute walk down the road to the harbor. It has an excellent bar and provides authentic Maine cuisine like boiled lobster, fish chowder, lobster stew, mussels, and our favorite; Lobster BLT sandwiches.

We are a 10 minute drive from Southwest Harbor which has many restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. Bar Harbor, the local tourism hub, is about a half hour drive away.
