Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great vacation! The log cottage was wonderful; spacious, yet cozy, well-equipped and comfortable. We loved waking up to the sound of the loon and watching the doe and fawn out the window as they grazed in the backyard.

The BEST vacation rental in Maine!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is every bit as well-furnished, attractive and comfortable as the pictures and information indicate. The cabin is beautifully situated, very near to Bar Harbor, Acadia and other interesting areas. There are several great restaurants of every sort within a short drive or ride.
The owner was a joy to work with. She provided an informational packet that covered every question and every detail of the property and its ammenities. She was very warm and open, and her pride in her property is obvious in the care she takes to make sure the rental is without any concerns or problems.
The kitchen, the bedrooms, the spacious living area, bathrooms, laundry, garage and the deck (with grill!) hold everything necessary to make the time there carefree and effortless. This was, by far, the best rental property experience we have ever had.

I would recommend this property to anyone considering vacationing in this area of Maine.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5
I can only say 'amen' to other reviewers here. The house was great in every way, the owner was a pleasure to work with and very informative, and the area is beautiful. We had a great week, it was hard to leave and hard to get back to the regular routine.
The house has everything you need, even beach chairs; but we should have brought an umbrella for the beach. Our family would love to return to Beech Hill Haven!

Just what we needed ...

  • 5 of 5
The house and amenities were just as described, in a quiet location with easy access to everything on the Island. The pictures were terrific, but the actual size and beauty were still surprising. The documents describing how to get there, how to use everything in the house, and the games/library inventories were very helpful. Thanks for the recommendation of the nearby nature center - we visited twice to see the loons and take a guided tour. Early morning kayaking at Long Pond was a great choice as well, especially when we were able to drift within 30 feet of a bald eagle drinking on the shore! Bobbie called to make sure we got in OK. This rental is highly recommended.

An Excellent Home!

  • 5 of 5
Beech Hill Haven is clean, cozy, and the pine interior makes you feel like you are out lost in the woods somewhere, yet it is close to Acadia National Park. In fact, we LOVED the location due to the centrality to every part of the park. It is away from the crowds of Bar Harbor, but you can get anywhere with ease. The hostess was extremely helpful and is very knowledgable about Mt. Desert Island. Plenty of rooms and beds for our family of 6. HIGHLY recommended!

Great Week at Beech Hill Haven

  • 5 of 5
We spent the first week of Aug 2011 at Beech Hill Haven. Our experience was very pleasant from the first contact with the owner who is warm and friendly and willing to answer any questions. We have a 2 year old and were delighted and surprised by the assortment of toys and books for kids! The rest of our family was over at AMC Echo Lake Camp but they do not allow kids under 4 - which was fine with us. The house is very cozy, comfortable and well equipped. With all the books, puzzles and games there is plenty to do on a rainy day. We are not a big TV family but there were tons of videos. There is also an extensive library of books for all age groups and interests. The kitchen had more cooking equipment than our own kitchen. There is also a great organic farm down the road for fruits and veggies (and chickens and pigs for the kids to watch).
We found it easy and convenient to get around the island - 15-20 min max to anywhere. Our hightlight was lunch with popovers at Jordan Pond House. We also enjoyed doing the sand bar walk in Bar Harbor at low tide, a boat trip over to Little Cranberry, and a lobster church supper in Somesville among other things.
We have rented lots of houses all over the world from VRBO and this was the best equipped by far. Especially If you have kids this is THE best place.

Beautiful Home away from Home Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed Beech Hill Haven for our trip to Mount Desert Island. Bobbie's house is equipped with anything and everything so not having a good time would be next to impossible. When we weren't out enjoying all the things to see and do in Acadia and Bar Harbor, we were playing games and reading from the owner's extensive collection of games and books.

I would highly recommend Beech Hill Haven to anyone looking to vacation in the Acadia/Bar Harbor area b/c it is centrally located and Bobbie is wonderful to work with and extremely helpful with recommendations for things to see and do in the area as well.

Thanks again!!!

Beech Hill Haven is centrally located on Mount Desert Island, with Acadia National Park at your doorstep. There is so much to see and do here, depending on your interests. Take a hike, or ride your bike on the many carriage roads, with a stop at Jordan Pond House for popovers on the lawn. Or rent a canoe or kayak, go birdwatching, fishing, or swimming, sit on some rocks and watch the waves at high tide, take a ranger led walk or boat ride to one of the nearby islands, go to one of the lovely nearby gardens, or play golf. Of course, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor are just minutes away, with lots of shops and restaurants to explore. A fresh Maine lobster is always a delicious vacation treat. It’s also great to relax at the house with a good book or video, put your feet up, and watch the wildlife that stops by.
