We lucked into Harbor Ridge on an Interval exchange. Located in an unassuming neighborhood, you turn into the resort driveway and are treated to an amazing vista of hills and water. As others have mentioned, the units are 3 level townhomes, with a patio off the bottom level, and decks on the 2nd and 3rd levels facing the Bay. Given it's location on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, away from the lights of Bar Harbor, stargazing at night is fantastic. We found the unit to be lovely, clean, and the kitchen sufficiently stocked with dishes, pots, etc. The staff was very nice, even calling us in advance to let us know what to do if we arrived late. Once we were there, they were very very helpful with suggestions.
We ended up spending quite a bit of our time in and around Bar Harbor, so we did a lot of driving. But it was only a 25 minute drive from Harbor Ridge, and the peacefulness of Southwest Harbor made it worth it. We hope to return and will no doubt explore the local area more next time.
