It has the perfect accomodations for use by a family looking for a getaway or a group of friends for a reunion. The interior is open and log home style; the architecture is comfortable and airy. The Maine home has a three story split plan that includes two bedrooms, extra large sleeping loft with sitting area, two bathrooms, fully appointed kitchen, washer and dryer, dining room and living room. The family room includes flat screen TV/DVD and has a sitting area suitable for an office, and of course there is a large wrap around deck. The Log Chalet coastal vacation rental home, located in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island Maine, sits atop the hillside of Frenchman's Bay providing views and access to Frenchman's Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. We are just 8 miles into the town of Bar Harbor and 5 miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park. We have furnished this vacation rental home to easily accommodate six adults. As comfortable for two as it is for six or seven our home is a well-appointed, year-round retreat. We offer the standard amenities that we desire when we vacation including: fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, Cable television and VCR/DVD. TV and internet service is provided by Time Warner CableTV. We invite you to spend a wonderful week in our Log Chalet water view vacation rental home. While on Mount Desert Island Maine there are many activities to do and things to see. There are a number of whale watching boats that leave Bar Harbor several times daily. The island contains over 50 miles of carriage roads built and donated to Acadia National Park by John D. Rockefeller. These roads, also called carriage trails, are for the exclusive use of horseback riding, hiking and bicycling. No motor vehicles are allowed on these roads. Additionally, there are miles of hiking trails that go all over the mountains and around all of the lakes and ponds of the island. Many books related to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park can be ordered online from Sherman's Bookstore in Bar Harbor. A hiking guide that is a personal favorite is A Walk in the Park, by Tom St. Germain (Parkman Publishing). He and his wife also own The Jack Russell, a restaurant highly recommended located just 5 miles from the house. . More

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a rural area of Bar Harbor. It is 'away from it all' yet only five miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park. It is also only eight miles to the town of Bar Harbor and an easy twenty minute drive to the 'quietside' of the island with Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor. There is plenty of parking and the home is up the hill from the water including fabulous views, particularly at sunset. 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 ...
Getting around
While a car is recommended, there is a wonderful bus line called the Island Explorer that travels by the property every 30 minutes and covers Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
