I thought the living area was very dark. The table and floor lamps need brighter bulbs. I had a tough time reading with the limited light from the lamps. Larger bulbs might help. Also the hall light wasn't working in the main floor. Bulb may have burnt out. I think these issues should be check before someone uses the facility.

Thank you for your five-star review, and reporting the maintenance issues. Please feel free to let us know that you need brighter bulbs for reading on your next visit to make it easier for you to read on vacation. We'll get that hall light working right away. We look forward to you return visit.

My wife and I spent a week at Harbor Ridge in early November. This is a very nice resort, the staff was very friendly and informed about the area. Great home base for exploring Acadia and down east Maine. We will definitely return here again.

Harbor Ridge was the perfect location for our recent week in Maine! We'd decided to say outside of Ellsworth and Bar Harbor this trip, and explore the quieter side of Mt. Desert Island. It was a great week, with amazing weather for November.

We were so pleasantly surprised at the size of our 2-bedroom unit. Each bedroom has it's own very large floor and the living room/kitchen is in the middle level so there is a lot of privacy. We had views of the water on the middle and top levels, too. The unit was clean and well furnished. The location is very...

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at Harbor Ridge. The "quiet side" of the island suited us well and the view of fall color, with a glimpse of the ocean over the trees, was a treat every day. The full moon rising one evening was a spectacular sight from our balcony. These are three level condos, though we only used...

Thank you for reviewing our property. We were so grateful that you understood that problems such as this arise without our knowing. A new furnace was installed the following week, and it has been running smoothly ever sense. We apologize that this happened on your vacation, but again thank you for graciousness during this "spectacular" mishap!

Accommodations were superb, providing panoramic views of the area. Harbor Ridge is centrally located, allowing easy access to many of the attractions, yet far enough removed to provide privacy. Overall it was an enjoyable first time experience, and one we wouldn't mind repeating.
