About Vicki Beal

Doug Beal, Jr. a 5th generation, lived in Southwest Harbor his whole life. He and his wife, Vicki, owned a Marine Conctruction and Diving Business for 41 years. They decided to start a retirement business, so, they began building seasonal rental cottages. Doug completed 3 of them before he passed away in the summer 2015 ( Homeaway #3498723 and #3498716 ). Vicki is carrying on the business that she and Doug started, together.

The three cottages can house 19 happy vacationers, (for a group looking to vacation, together), or rent one for a family. Woodland Cottages I, II and III, all have great holiday appeal ~

Wonderful, quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was wonderful! We loved the private location, yet we were so close to shopping and restaurants as well. Our 3 kids (age 11) slept comfortably in the loft with the addition of air mattresses. The cottage was the perfect size for us - allowing room to hang out after fun days exploring Acadia - loved the deck and fire pit area. Even though it is located near other houses, we hardly heard or saw anyone. The kids loved exploring the woods around the cottage too! The house was very clean and had everything we needed (except a washer and dryer). When we come back to MDI, I will definitely look to book here again!! Thank you

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot imagine a more perfect place to stay while in Acadia. Private and surrounded by woods, yet a five minute walk into town. We are so glad we chose ro stay in Southwest Harbor---the quiet side of the island. The cabin/cottage was perfect for our family of four--all the comforts of home. We explored Acadia by day and stargazed at the cabin at night. The cabin was clean and somfortable and Vicki was a great host. We hope to be back some day.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Wooded Cottage is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The deck, grill and fire pit allow for relaxing evenings. It is well placed for visiting all of Mount Desert Island. It is very peaceful and restful - set away from the main road yet close enough to walk to the village. We would not hesitate in recommending the cottage. The only aspect to bear in mind would be the steep steps up to the loft bedroom - our son really enjoyed the loft space but it might be a tricky climb for younger children.

Charming and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Could not have picked a better place for our first trip to Bar Harbor. Being on "the quiet side" was exactly what we liked. The view from the deck was great. The surrounding area beautiful, quiet and relaxing!! The cottage was very welcoming and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants quaint, quiet and homey. Even our fur babies loved laying on the deck in the sun after a day of hiking.

Quiet, scenic and very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

This property was very quiet, relaxing and close to all the activities we wanted to do. We absolutely LOVED being on the "Quiet Side" of the island. The location was perfect for our needs and Vicki, the host was very helpful but unobtrusive. There are two other cabins on the site, but the trees screen you well. We never even saw the third cottage. The cottage contained all we needed to keep us comfortable, though we did bring a few of our own microwave cooking containers. There is plenty of seating both inside and out, so the folding chairs we brought all the way from Kansas remained in the car. There is a laundry facility on site which proved to be very useful after a week of traveling. Though the bathroom was a bit small and lacked sufficient hardware for hanging clothes, there was always plenty off hot water due to an on-demand system. This cottage was designed for a couple, but could also accommodate 1-2 kids in a loft area which has a futon. We highly recommend this property.
