About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Located hillside in Southwest Harbor with breathtaking water and mountain views, my home-away-from-home is a three-level, contemporary town home in a 5-star resort, just a five-minute drive to Acadia National Park's many attractions and a short walk to shops and restaurants. It is a sun-drenched and cheery end unit with windows on three sides and fabulous views of Somes Sound to the north, the mountains of Acadia to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean and islands to the east. (Early birds can watch the sunrise each day from one of the decks!)

Main Level of My Town Home: The main level includes a living/dining room area with a queen sofa bed, two side lounge chairs, armoire housing the TV + VCR / DVD, dining table for six, telephone, and deck; a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, lobster pot (!), and all utensils; and a half bath/laundry area with washer/dryer. Linens and towels are provided.

Upper Level of My Town Home: The upper level is a spacious, master bedroom suite with a king bed, chaise lounge for reading or just kicking back, TV, telephone, skylight, ceiling fan, and deck. The full bath on this level has a whirlpool tub with shower and a skylight.

Lower Level of My Town Home: The lower level has two double beds, full bath with tub and shower, patio, and backyard barbecue grill.

Harbor Ridge Resort: Harbor Ridge Resort is small and exclusive, with only five, eight-unit buildings, 40 townhomes in all. Of course I think mine is in the best location, i.e., nothing between me and the views! The clubhouse area has an indoor heated pool, hot tub, tennis court, fitness center, playground, game room, video rentals, great room with a grand stone fireplace for rainy day activities, and staff on duty to assist with your every need.

Acadia and Harbor Ridge have it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't seem to get my renters to enter comments on this site but here is the latest one from Summer 2004 that I received by e-mail.08/30/2004Dear Karen --We had a terrific time at your condo. The view was amazing--just as you'd said. We're interested in going back next August.I understand that the facility is a timeshare and I'd be interested in buying a week's time in August if you're ever interested in selling. Thanks.-- Chris

Luxury town home in 5-star resort w/ panoramic water and mountain views
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews
Bethesda, MD

Maine in late summer

  • 5 of 5

This townhome was a great home-away-from-home. Spacious, comfortable, well equiped, nicely furnished and a convient location made our time at Harbor Ridge relaxing, easy and fun. Our unit was clean and well-maintained and working with the owner was very easy. The beautiful views from the decks and windows offer the Sound, Atlantic Ocean and mountains. Restaurants, shopping and more are just a few minutes walk into town. You are a short drive from the wonders of Acadia National Park or the fun and beauty of Bar Harbor. There is so much to see and do in this part of Maine! After a day of exploring the area, it was delightful to return to a welcoming private space. The resort is beautifully maintained and the common areas offer a place to relax, internet access, area information, things to do if the weather is uncooperative, a gift shop and a helpful staff. I can strongly recommend this property to my family and friends.
