The Fisherman's Cape

New for the 2023 season, The Fisherman's Cape is a lovely, newly renovated cottage located in Bass Harbor (on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island). Originally built in 1850 The Fisherman's Cape has some views of the harbor and has private shore access. Facing west, guests can catch phenomenal sunset views nightly when when enjoying the "walk to" water access. Guests can kayak, fish, and paddle board in the sheltered harbor (just across the harbor is Thurston's Lobster Pound and dock—an easy kayak!). The cottage is just minutes to several Acadia attractions, like the Bass Harbor Headlight, Ships Harbor, Wonderland, and Sea Wall picnic area. Just down the road is the Swan's Island Ferry, a fun day trip with bikes. And you're just a 7 minute drive to the village of Southwest Harbor for shopping and fine dining! The spacious deck is great for BBQing and dining.
