About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath 6-8 Sleeps With Beautiful Views Of Frenchman's Bay

Our Cedar Chalet Maine waterfront rental vacation home, located in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island Maine, sits high atop a hill overlooking Frenchman's Bay. The main floor has a cathedral ceiling with two story glass windows overlooking the bay. French doors lead to a large deck, perfect for relaxing and BBQs. This area provides spectacular views of the water during the day and especially at sunset.

The Bar Harbor vacation rental home has complete access to Frenchman's Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

We furnished this vacation rental house to accommodate up to eight people. We offer the standard amenities that we desire when we vacation including: fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, television and DVR. Television service is provided by DirecTV satellite and wireless internet is provided by Fairpoint.

The three story floor plan of this vacation rental house offers spacious common areas while maintaining privacy for the sleeping quarters. It lends itself both to couples sharing a vacation home and families wanting a separate play area for the children.

There is a bedroom with two twins on the main floor. The master is upstairs with a king and has views out over the water. The lower floor has a bedroom with a queen. There are three baths, one on each floor. There is also a double futon in the family room.

The living area is on the main floor along with the dining and kitchen. There is plenty of room for large dinners at the table. There is a family room downstairs including the entertainment area with TV. The two separate living areas are great with a group that would like to spread out and enjoy different activities. There are also TV's in the living room and master bedroom.

We invite you to spend a glorious week in our elegant Cedar Chalet vacation rental in Maine. Call Brenda at 813-334-1144.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to say hi and let you know we all enjoyed our visit to Bar Harbor and were very happy with the Cedar Chalet. It was a perfect for the 3 of us and my dog Maddie. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/pans, etc. We loved the views and the location also. I'll visit your website and add more to our comments on our stay. Also, we are all interested in returning next year. Thanks again.

Cedar Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had reserved the Cedar Chalet last year for a family vacation with our adult children. Our daughter then decided to get married at Acadia National Park while we were there so the groom's family rented the log cabin down the hill from us. It was a small (15 people) wedding and we had the reception in the Chalet. The space worked perfectly for our family trip and the family wedding. We used a catering company for the wedding dinner and they set up the space perfectly. Brenda was great to work with. Our son runs his own business on line and needed good internet and she spent time making sure the internet was working well and even offered another of her cottages for his use, if needed. We had great access to the park and Bar Harbor and would stay here again. It was peaceful and quiet and well equipped. We would highly recommend it.

Best rental in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Cedar Chalet for two weeks this year instead of our usual one. It is without a doubt the nicest house to rent if you want to spend time in Bar Harbor and explore Acadia. The house has everything you need, beautiful views and is nestled in the woods for peace and quiet. It has 3 floors - each with a bathroom and shower and perfect for three couples.

We would never stay anywhere else. The owner is efficient and a joy to work with.

Perfect getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous cabin, perfect for the extended family or for friends. Loved the spaciousness and home-away-from-home feel of the cabin. I, my wife, infant son, dog, parents and in-laws all loved it. Very convenient for exploring Acadia Nat'l Park and Bar Harbor.

  • 5 of 5

A blissful week of serenity in a home with all the amenities and an exquisite view, what more could one want? Well, being from crowded and noisy New York, we deeply appreciated the complete quiet and privacy that this property provided, but also the availability of great food and other attractions just minutes away in Bar Harbor and Acadia. A perfect combination.

Harp-Hawkins Cedar Chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome house! Fantastic views, peace and quiet, lots of room, sparkling clean and everything you need is at your fingertips. The owner thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable (even nightlights in every room). Wi-Fi worked great. It's a short distance to the entrance to Acadia. We plan on going back every year!

Bayview Cottages Vacation Homes by Harp-Hawkins Vacation Homes is located in Bar Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island. The Cedar Chalet is waterfront offering spectacular views and water access. Our Bar Harbor Maine Vacation Homes are within minutes of Acadia National Park, downtown Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Southwest Harbor. Mt. Desert Island is an area rich with vacation activities for people of all ages. Bar Harbor and Mt Desert in general is a wonderful place to vacation, the rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs are spectacular. From the stonewall-lined and tree-covered road leading you into our village, to the sweeping vistas from atop Cadillac Mountain, there is a special mystique to Bar Harbor. Nestled on the east side of Mt. Desert Island, surrounded by Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor has welcomed visitors for over a hundred years. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park have a wide variety of offerings for visitors. There truly is something for everyone and our Bar Harbor Maine vacation rentals provide the perfect accommodations from which to base your vacation.

The home is along the shores of Frenchman's Bay, a remarkable stretch of water. It is likely that you'll see Bald Eagles fishing while you enjoy your first cup of coffee in the morning. A mating pair of these birds nest on Thomas Island, which is located in the bay. Later in the morning you'll likely watch vacationing kayakers exploring the bay and local fishermen checking their lobster traps. Should you wish to hike or bicycle, our Bar Harbor Maine cottages are minutes away from Acadia National Park, famous for its well maintained carriage hiking trails.

Bar Harbor offers a wide array of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets and shopping in our unique shops and galleries. Be sure to plan enough time to enjoy our area and consider using us as a base of operations to see all of Downeast Maine. Our Bar Harbor vacation rentals are only a short distance to other famous attractions such as Campobello Island, Franklin Roosevelt's summer home, the Schoodic Peninsula, the mainland part of Acadia National Park, and other islands, coastal attractions and nature based attractions. Once the summer playground of wealthy and famous Americans, Bar Harbor was celebrated throughout the world as a quiet, beautiful resort village, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of New York, Boston, and Paris. Today, the 'summer people' still come to our island paradise, but many visitors also arrive for the brilliant fall foliage. And more and more, people are coming to experience our winter wonderland and the surprises of spring.

Please feel free to call us regarding vacationing in Bar Harbor and our Bar Harbor vacation rental.
