We have been coming to Harbor Ridge Resort for 20 years now and everytime is just as great as the first time. It's even better now.... they have people who you can order pies and lobsters from where they deliver to the resort for you! Really close to Bar Harbor and so much to do!

Harbor Ridge continues to be amazingly well taken care of. It is a perfect landing spot on the quiet side of Acadia. The staff are incredibly nice and helpful. The facility has a great clubhouse that can entertain kids on a rainy day. I would definitely recommend it.

Everything on the island was an easy, spectacular drive, and the restaurants in the area where delicious too. Saw wildlife, and was exceptionally quiet and... More

We live in the area but were unable to move into our home due to renters. That being said the staff at Harbor Ridge are exceptional, the view is gorgeous, the facility is very clean and well kept though a bit outdated. Location is very good. We did not use the pool or grounds. It is a wonderful respite after... More

We love Acadia and Harbor Ridge is an excellent location to start out from on the daily adventures. The staff at Harbor Ridge are as helpful as any you will find. We look forward each and every year to our vacation week at Harbor Ridge.
