What Jen Loves About Beechwood

Upon entering the home, you are greeted by an open floor plan with a vaulted hardwood ceiling. Twin French doors immediately draw you toward the large deck overlooking Denning Brook, which is a feeding and nesting ground for many native animals and birds. Beaver and deer are frequent visitors as well as bald eagles, osprey, great blue herons, woodpeckers, and hundreds of songbirds. The dining area and living room, with skylights, create a comfortable space for the whole family to gather. Attached is a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table.

The downstairs master suite with a queen bed has a private bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. A second downstairs bedroom features a double bed and full bath along with a washer/dryer. Upstairs, a second "master" bedroom with queen bed, a bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bath round out the floor plan. A delightful deck overflowing with flowers, a new gas grill and outside seating is the perfect location to watch birds as the sunsets over Denning Brook. The large private lawn is perfect for lawn games or reading.

From Bar Harbor and the breathtaking Park Loop Road to Bass Harbor and its famous lighthouse, you'll spend more time exploring the wonders of this lovely island and less time getting there when staying in the heart of Mount Desert Island at the Beechwood home.

Beechwood is without a doubt the best home we have rented in our various trips to the Acadia National Park area. As noted in our title, this home represents the best of items most often deemed essential when ‘shopping’ for a house rental. The home location on the quiet side of the island (close to the park and excellent resturants but away from the tourist traffic) of the home met all expectations for ourselves and our 4 guests. The home was quite clean and furnishings comfortable. Setting the table (and cooking utensils) for 6 was no problem, be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Also of note, consummable products such as soap,dishwasher and washing machine detergent ,shampoo, paper towels and toilet paper were in excellent supply. Linen supplies were quite good and all beds had flannel sheets/pillow cases. We believe you will not be disappointed in renting this property.

My husband and I, our 2 children, their spouses and 2 grandchildren had a fabulous vacation at the Beechwood. The location was perfect and the home extremely clean and comfortable. The multiple bedrooms and baths gave us all the space and privacy we requested yet the large common room/deck area was open and inviting for meals and visiting. The kitchen is very well equipped and has all modern conveniences. My husband and I have been to Acadia many times and I have to say this is the best house we have ever rented. We are all hoping to return soon.

Thank you so very much for creating a clean, relaxing, well stocked home for us. Fluffy towels was a bonus hit! We had come together from five states to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary- 18 of us (not all staying here!) together- not sure if it will happen again. Your home provided the perfect setting for family ginners (awesome grill) and perfectly situated for activities around the island. We have spent 3 past summers together in Cape Cod and while those were memorable trips, your home was the cleanest of any we have stayed at! Our week was rain free but we did manage a few games of Boggle- thank you for having games on hand! Part of the really nice touches you provided – including shampoo, jam, information in the box, very clear exiting directions- you don’t miss anything! Thank you for a truly memorable week!
