BassTerre is a classic salt water farm located on 19.5± acres with 1,140′± shorefront on idyllic Goose Cove in Tremont. This wonderful property offers seclusion and two sunny residences at the end of a private road in a desirable area of Mount Desert Island. It’s a perfect example of why the area is known as the ‘Quietside’.

The charming four-bedroom main farmhouse, built around 1840, has been lovingly restored and maintained, and includes a large great room and attached barn with many vintage details. There is also an additional garage and delightful playhouse near the shore. Southwesterly views over the rolling meadows, lawns and gardens are of Goose Cove and Swan’s Island beyond. A separate guest house has four bedrooms and enjoys the same captivating views but from a more elevated setting. This residence is far enough away from the original farmhouse to be privately separated or rented out if desired. A natural, old growth forest of mixed conifers, deciduous trees, lush mosses and unusual granite outcroppings insulate the property from neighbors and roads, providing privacy and solitude. Walking trails through the woods and along the shore meander to a pretty sand beach. Both residences have been used year-round, and enjoy panoramic views of the cove. With nearly 20 acres, an additional residence could be built, retaining direct and private access to the road but without compromising the privacy and solitude of the original residences.

BassTerre represents the best of timeless, quintessential Maine, ‘the way life should be’.
