Television service is provided by DirecTV satellite and wireless internet is provided by Fairpoint.

The three story floor plan of this vacation rental house offers spacious common areas while maintaining privacy for the sleeping quarters. It lends itself both to couples sharing a vacation home and families wanting a separate play area for the children.

The living area is on the main floor along with the dining and kitchen. There is plenty of room for large dinners at the table. There is a family room downstairs including the entertainment area with TV. The two separate living areas are great with a group that would like to spread out and enjoy different activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brenda,

Just wanted to say hi and let you know we all enjoyed our visit to Bar Harbor and were very happy with the Cedar Chalet. It was a perfect for the 3 of us and my dog Maddie. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/pans, etc. We loved the views and the location also. I'll visit your website and add more to our comments on our stay. Also, we are all interested in returning next year. Thanks again.

Perfect getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely gorgeous cabin, perfect for the extended family or for friends. Loved the spaciousness and home-away-from-home feel of the cabin. I, my wife, infant son, dog, parents and in-laws all loved it. Very convenient for exploring Acadia Nat'l Park and Bar Harbor.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
A blissful week of serenity in a home with all the amenities and an exquisite view, what more could one want? Well, being from crowded and noisy New York, we deeply appreciated the complete quiet and privacy that this property provided, but also the availability of great food and other attractions just minutes away in Bar Harbor and Acadia. A perfect combination.

Harp-Hawkins Cedar Chalet

This is an awesome house! Fantastic views, peace and quiet, lots of room, sparkling clean and everything you need is at your fingertips. The owner thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable (even nightlights in every room). Wi-Fi worked great. It's a short distance to the entrance to Acadia. We plan on going back every year!

Wonderful Vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have now stayed at the Cedar Chalet twice. Our first visit was so magical, I was worried that the second trip to Bar Harbor could not possibly match it and it might be a letdown. That fear was unfounded, as our second trip was every bit as great !

The Chalet is perfectly located. It is in a secluded spot, but just a short drive to the downtown Bar Harbor area. It was wonderful to visit in the town where it can get pretty busy, and then come back to this peaceful and beautiful spot.

The pictures of the Chalet give you a good idea of what to expect. It is very comfortable, clean and well maintained. It is also very well stocked with everything you'll need for your vacation, except food of course. There are plenty of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, paper products, etc.

Did I mention the setting? It is so beautiful ! One of the highlights for me was seeing the bald eagle sitting in the trees out on the island. It was the first time I'd seen a bald eagle in the wild, and what a thrill that was. It took me a while to find him, but when I did I practically screamed, and ran back in the chalet to get my wife so she could see him too. Don't forget a good pair of binoculars as they will come in handy for seeing wildlife everywhere.

I highly recommend the Cedar Chalet. Brenda, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. My wife and I hope we'll be back one day!!!

Maine vacation

  • 5 of 5
I had a very enjoyable week at the cedar chalet. It was everything as advertised and more. The view was magnificant and it is close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National park. I posted pictures of the chalet and views on my facebook and everyone had wonderful comments. Seeing the pictures, my cousin would now like to take a vacation in Maine and would like to stay at the chalet also.I would highly recomment the chalet to anyone that asks. I forgot jackets and a set of keys and Brenda was kind enough to send them to me immediately. Wonderful person to do business with. Thank You for everything!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been spending a week in the Bar Harbor area every summer for over 15 years now, and we have yet to run out things to do and see. Every year we find a new adventure, whether it's paddling sea kayaks through the Porcupine Islands, climbing a new mountain in Acadia National Park, seeing humpback whales miles offshore, or biking on the carriage roads, there's always something new to do. After our daytime adventures, we enjoy going to the many fine restaurants on the island and in Ellsworth, and it seems we discover a new favorite place with every visit.

For the last 12 years or so we've been renting homes from Bayview Cottages, and have stayed in most of the homes by now. We've found every location to be wonderfully maintained, clean and comfortable, and situated close to all the action. The best part is that for the price of a hotel room, we get a whole house with great views and a lot more room.

I always recommend Bayview Cottages to any of my friends who are thinking of visiting the Bar Harbor region, and can't say enough about how great it's been for us to have this kind of home away from home.

Desert Island is an area rich with vacation activities for people of all ages. Bar Harbor and Mt Desert in general is a wonderful place to vacation, the rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs are spectacular.

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park have a wide variety of offerings for visitors. There truly is something for everyone and our Bar Harbor Maine vacation rentals provide the perfect accommodations from which to base your vacation.

The home is along the shores of Frenchman's Bay, a remarkable stretch of water. It is likely that you'll see Bald Eagles fishing while you enjoy your first cup of coffee in the morning. A mating pair of these birds nest on Thomas Island, which is located in the bay. Later in the morning you'll likely watch vacationing kayakers exploring the bay and local fishermen checking their lobster traps. Should you wish to hike or bicycle, our Bar Harbor Maine cottages are minutes away from Acadia National Park, famous for its well maintained carriage hiking trails.

Once the summer playground of wealthy and famous Americans, Bar Harbor was celebrated throughout the world as a quiet, beautiful resort village, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of New York, Boston, and Paris. Today, the 'summer people' still come to our island paradise, but many visitors also arrive for the brilliant fall foliage. And more and more, people are coming to experience our winter wonderland and the surprises of spring.

Please feel free to call us regarding vacationing in Bar Harbor and our Bar Harbor vacation rental.
