About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms on 10 acres with private pond

This lovely year-round log home is located on ten wooded acres, with a running brook, and a pond. A family of beavers can frequently be spotted in the pond at sundown. The large wrap-around deck is wonderful for sunning, reading, outdoor dining or star-gazing.

Harper's Acadia Lodge is extremely well and lovingly maintained by owners who pride themselves on this cabin.

Each season some new improvement is added. This year, a kayak has been made available for use on the pond.

The cabin has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen sized beds and one with twin beds. All linens are furnished. The are two full bathrooms.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Maine and the Harper Lodge was perfect. Accommodations, from the Kitchen to the amenities in the bathrooms and bedrooms were very nice. The large deck and new Weber grill was very convenient and relaxing. Beautiful property, with smells of the evergreen forest and only sounds were of the forest. We found location convenient to Acadia park loop road and to Bar harbor.

Comfort and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a comfortable place to sit back

and relax after a day of exploring the Island.

I spent two weeks at this modern log Cabin with friends. We had plenty of room, found the cabin to be very comfortable as well as convenient for heading off to any destination we chose in and around the Acadia Park. The cabin inside and out was both relaxing and clean. The inside is complete with furnishings, kitchen supplies and entertainment.

Several times I saw deer across the pond and we may have seen the brightest

and clearest view of the Milky Way that I have ever witnessed. Neighbors are few

and out of view. If you enjoy country living, this is the place.

Refreshing, relaxing, memorbale vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harper's Acadia Lodge, and its beautiful surroundings. The house came equipped with every possible amenity, and then some! A great retreat, close to all the action, but not too close. We loved exploring the area and wished we could stay longer. We will definitely be back soon, a fabulous house and Bar Harbor is just spectacular. Lulu the Lobster Boat tour is a must!

Car: necessary

Come to Bar Harbor, the first place to see the Sun in the United States. Mount Desert Island's (MDI) unique topography provides a mixture of natural woodlands, waterways and mountains. Experience activities ranging from golf, fishing, birding, biking, boating to mountain climbing all without leaving MDI. Take a mail boat to the Cranberry Islands. Climb the 'Bubbles' and then reward yourself with high tea at Jordon Pond House where giant popovers and strawberry jam are made using the same recipe originally used in the late 1800's
