AMAZING!! You will love this place!

My husband I go to Bar Harbor every year the last week in September. This year we went for two weeks and stayed at this property because the place we have stayed at the last few years was not available. I will tell you I was NOT disappointed. This place is fantastic. The view is incredible and the house is spotless. It had everything we needed. We have a large dog and he was very happy sitting out on the deck on when we were at the house and he had plenty of room in the house as well. There is a huge loft upstairs, two bedrooms on the main floor and plenty of room downstairs. One of the perks for us this time is that you are right in Bar Harbor and very close to town. The fireplace was perfect. Though it was only two of us, this house is plenty big. I love the peace and quiet. It is beautiful at night, looking the stars and the moon light reflecting off the water. My husband and I would come home after a night out and sit in the Adirondack Chairs and have a coffee or adult beverage and just enjoyed the views! We will be back next year for sure. Thank you so much for your hospitality! I highly recommend if you need a place to stay while visiting Bar Harbor., choose one of the Harp - Harkins Properties. You will not be disappointed. HUGE PLUS - Little A's delivers to the houses, which was nice the first night we arrived. We arrived a bit too late and we were way too tired to go shopping! When we called they knew exactly where we were located. Once again, thank you Brenda, we will be back!

Nothing Quieter

If you want to be secluded but not isolated, then this is your place! Super quiet. Beautiful scenery right out the window.

Great vacation experience

Wonderful place to stay with the family. We had beautiful surroundings and the house had everything we needed. Acadia National Park was the perfect place to go as a family. We might just go back another year with friends.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We rented the log chalet for an extended family getaway. A few miles from the town of bar harbor, Brenda's chalet was perfect for 6 adults and 2 kids. The house itself was maintained very well and immaculate..all linen appeared freshly washed and changed and there were lots of towels and sheets available. Most of the kitchen and bathroom supplies were provided and there was a grill in good working condition. The view from both the upper and lower level was beautiful...and the highlight of our vacation was the beautiful sunset that we enjoyed daily.
In short, all of us loved our vacation at the chalet..this has to be the cleanest accommodations we have stayed in on vacation, yet it was warm and very cozy. We would definitely stay there again!

My family had a great time in Maine! The Harp's waterfront Log Chalet was quite the treat! The log home was very comfortable and the view from the big wrap around deck was fantastic! The house was set back off the road with all the peace and quiet nature has to offer. It was only a short drive to downtown Bar Harbor where the shops and restaurants are sure to please all.

Log home
We have stayed in the Log Home and the Chalet for the past four years. We have already reserved the Log Home again for 2010. We love the Log Home because of it's location, view and the seclusion. We are very secluded there and yet only about seven miles from downtown Bar Harbor. Each year as a part of our visit we take a private two hour carriage ride all through the carriage trails on Mt. Desert Island. It is a spectacular private, jsut for two ride that takes you back to what it must have been like a hundred years ago. We love the food, the town and the people that always make our visit special.
Bottom line is we love Maine and Brenda, your Log Home is something we anticipate all year. Thanks for the communication that we have enjoyed and hope to return for many years to come.

We have rented one of Brenda's cabins for each of the last 5 years. This is our Family Vacation Week and we never know quite how many of the family will be able to attend. My wife and I have been very happy with the Log Chalet as well as the cabin on the Harp/Hawkins property. The property is only a few miles from the entrance to acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Our favorite acadia hikes are Cadillac Mountain and acadia Mountain. Don't miss the Bar Harbor Whale Watch - we always have a great photo op there. The Log Chalet is our favorite rental because of the views of Frenchman's Bay and the deck with the hummingbird feeders. I don't see us gambling on another property any time soon.
⢠By RSandFamily from Northern NJ on 8/9/2010 for a stay in 8/1/2008 at

Six of us stayed here for a week and there was plenty of room for us. The oldies had the double and king beds on the ground floor, the two boys had the huge loft and another had the basement to herself along with her own bathroom. Previous guests (and we) left things behind so check what's in the cupboard before you head to Hannafords in Bar Harbor for supplies. Things like tea bags, sauces, ice cream, oven chips etc. The deck was well used for coffee in the morning and cocktails at night as well as when we barbecued and we loved watching the sunset. Great to have the washer and dryer too and am sure the stove would have been great if needed but not in July. There are fans throughout and it was warm so well used. All in all, a great place to stay. Clean and well equipped. About ten minutes from town where we loved Rupununis bar, Poor Boys restaurant and whale watching.
