Thanksgiving Vacation at Beech Hill

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year and we love it. It is very clean, well organized, has everything you need and a great place to have a family Thanksgiving. Great location between Ellsworth and Bar Harbor. The owner, Josh Greer, is very accommodating and is always available if needed. First class place!

Loved every minute here!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming up to Beech Hill every summer since I was a kid and introduced my husband to it shortly after we married. Staying at Josh's place was wonderful and enhanced the affection we already had for the lake. Walking in we were taken back with the view, the furnishings and the immaculate conditions. Oh, and the wine, beer and s'mores fixings! We wanted for nothing and enjoyed our time here immensely. Thanks a million for a wonderful vacation!

Nice house on a clear lake. Great for kids. Owner is very responsive.

  • 5 of 5

The house was in very nice condition. We had 8 adults and 5 kids 4 and under. The house comes with lots of water "toys" - kayaks, etc and dock. The little kids had fun in the playground in the back yard, and there were many toys in the family room closet. Kitchen is well stocked and in a good location where you can stay connected to all that is going on. Sparklers and smores were a nice touch, as is the wood and fire ring. Only thing we'd suggest are some blackout curtains in the bedrooms.

Josh is always willing to help.

Overall experience was fantastic! The house was very well suited for our families and felt very comfortable. The location was outstanding and close proximity to the beach was a definite plus! We used the canoe, kayaks, and paddle board a lot and really well utilized the lake and float. The surroundings were magnificent and the neighbors were friendly and helpful. Our stay was just outstanding!

A few suggestions:

1. Add AC unit to downstairs back rooms as they tend to get very warm. Especially the back room with the full bed was quite musty to smell and humid due to it's location. An AC unit in each of those rooms would be tremendously helpful to keep the air flowing.

2. Need a new can opener as the one available is not working

3. Would consider another fridge in the basement to accommodate food for the number of people staying at the house. We were at a max with 9 people and needed to have a lot of food for the week

4. Consider adding a few bikes for kids to ride to beach and long the dirt road.

Beech Hill Pond is a beautiful, four and a half-mile long, spring-fed lake located in Downeast Maine near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It makes a relaxing vacation spot for anyone wanting to explore the Downeast Maine area, without the crowds of Acadia National Park. The setting for Beech Hill Pond couldn’t be prettier – the crystal clear water is surrounded by peaceful mountains. Just a few of the activities available at Beech Hill Pond are swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, bicycling, wildlife viewing or just relaxing and enjoying the views. The pond is one of several high quality coldwater

sportfish lakes in the Union River drainage.

For sightseers, a thirty-five minute drive takes you to Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park, which is the oldest national park on the East Coast. Ellsworth is only a 15 minutes away and also has shopping and restaurants, including fresh clam chowder and lobsters right off the boat.

Other Activities: Hiking, boat rentals, canoeing, kayaking and hunting nearby
