Everything was up to standard The site was on a very nice spot. Very laid back and a wonderfol view. Close to Sowest Harbor and not to far from Bar Harbor. Close to All hiking trails and Ponds and Rivers. The Arcadia Park is a wonderful place to go to.

Excellent service, friendly, personal, warm hostess. Couldn't ask for better. Accommodation is clean and cozy. Definitely recommended. Helpful reception. Every one is very pleasant. Not at all commercial like other resorts.

The place was clean. It is older, no a/c, but they do let you know that. Only hair dryer is in MB. Speaking of MB, don't plan on sleeping past 5:30am. The light is the room is so bright, it is impossible. the blinds do nothing and there are also skylights. It is so bright, one day I had to... More

Thank you for reviewing our resort. Please let me know which unit you stayed in, so we can correct this problem as all units should have a hairdryer in the master and guest bathrooms. We have been experiencing some problems with our internet; and we did have RedZone on-site on Thursday, May 21 doing some upgrades. Internet speeds in rural... More

This facility is conveniently located for outdoor activities at Acadia national part and visiting Bar Harbor. Each unit is big for a family of 4 to 6. Kitchen is well equipped and the view from the balconies is beautiful. Watching sunrise with a cup of coffee was my favorite part.

Location was perfect, away from the tourist crowded area of Bar Harbor. There was a well stocked grocery store close to the resort. A water or mountain view seemed to appear around every bend in the road, and driving was pleasure. It never seemed too far to run into Bar Harbor for whatever! Loved Acadia. Very friendly and helpful folks... More

It is a fine facility with great views but the best part is the staff. They are a uniformly friendly and efficient group. We will be back. The one thing that I do not like is this form which won't let me send the review.

Excellent stay at Harbor Ridge. The staff was courteous and polite. And as every time I stay at Harbor Ridge, the room was very clean and refreshing. The only downfall of this trip was that the Carriage Roads was closed and Jordan's Pond trail was open, but impassable due to remaining snow on the ground. Overall, Arcadia National Park was...

The harbor is visible from this ridge. Besides the scenic views of Southwest Harbor ME, this resort is a great home base for visiting Acadia National Park. The resort offers a lounge with a great fireplace in addition to a secluded hot tub.

Staff very friendly as usual. Enjoyed the Monday breakfast and the Thursday evening wine, cheese and fruit. Even though we were in Building 3, we saw no deer for the first time ever, I think we saw 5 last year.

Thank you for your kind compliments about the friendliness of our staff. The severe winter was challenging on our deer herd; however, you can generally see them at dusk down near Sea Wall and Bass Harbor. We look forward to having you return. More

Overall we were very pleased with Harbor Ridge. This is the first time we stayed there as RCI members. We are not owners at the resort. The unit was large and well equipped. Our microwave stopped working, but a new one was installed very quickly. My only complaint is when we used the hot tub, soap suds formed as soon... More
