Beechwood truly is a home away from home
Submitted: May 8, 2012
Stayed: April 2012
We stayed at Beechwood early this April to visit our son who worked at Jackson Labs in Bar Harbor. We LOVED the house! It was warm, welcoming, clean and so well stocked. The internet access and satellite TV were an added bonus (we have neither cable or satellite TV where we live so that alone was a novelty for our daughters!). Having a washer and dryer is a vacationing mom's dream. We loved the area - Acadia National Park is beyond beautiful. Although the Park was closed for the season, that did not stop us from hiking, biking and exploring to our hearts content...to have such a beautiful park completely devoid of people was for us a very special experience. There were plenty of restaurants/businesses open in Bar Harbor to make the trip off season worthwhile.
Jen Wales went out of her way to accommodate us - she was a pleasure to deal with.
I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a "home away from home." I will confess, I cried when we left. We love Maine, we love Acadia. Our son is heading on to graduate school and it may be a while before we visit Maine again, but we will be back!
On a funny note, we drove 10 hours to discover a Colgate flag on the Beechwood garage! Colgate is only 40 minutes from our house in Central New York. Go figure.
5 stars, highly recommend. Don't be afraid to visit OFF SEASON! It's truly a wonderful time to be in Maine.
Owner's Response: Robin,
Thank you for all your kind words! It seems that Acadia has touched you in a way that it does for so many, myself included. Mount Desert Island is truly a diamond, no matter what the season. It is stunning in its beauty whether it be in warm summer sunlight or blanketed with pure white winter snow. There really is so much to do here year round which is one reason that we have made this home, Beechwood, available for rentals in all seasons, not just the summer. We would certainly love to have you visit again and we would be delighted to offer a "referral" discount to anyone whom you send our way. I wish your son all the best, Jackson Lab will certainly be a gold star on his resume (maybe he'll move back here one day and then you can come visit all the time! Hey, a mom can hope, right?)
