     Description 


A stay at Beach Haven House is so much more than a vacation, it
affords the opportunity for the experience of a lifetime.
Restoration awaits in the peaceful ambiance of this private 6 acre
ocean side retreat located on a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean.
Absorb the beauty of the sights, sounds and smells of the sea from
our own sand and pebble beach or amble down our down our lane for 2
minutes and arrive at an all but deserted world class white sand
beach.

Beach Haven is a perfect location for a reunion of friends and
family or a private retreat, so far from a rushed modern life and
yet so close to all modern amneities (in the house, washer, dryer,
dishwasher) and excellent shopping (just 15 minutes away in the
charming village of Liverpool, two excellent full service
supermarkets).

Here is what a recent guest had to say:

GUEST COMMENT, AUGUST 2007

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful week we had at Beach
Haven-it was perfect for us. Plenty of space and variety of things
to do for all tastes. There is plenty to do for all interests -
charming villages to explore, sandy beach, rocky coves, a large
attractive house with beautiful water views and plenty of space for
everyone to find a quiet corner to read or play games - truly a
great spot to relax and recharge. Susan and extended family, Boyds,
Maryland

Absolutely amazing 270 degree views of the open ocean, the waves
breaking on the reef, Frying Pan Island and its scenic lighthouse
and the birds, seals and other wildlife that abound can be found
outdoors or in the spacious sun room. Our own saltwater pond provides
a perfect spot for safe adventures for children, such as learning to
kayak. In the executive level 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house the
comfortable furnishings and ocean views and invite relaxation. A
glorious pine cathedral ceiling crowns the open concept living room,
dining room and kitchen.



 

     Amenities 


The upper level of Beach Haven house provides more than 1400 square
feet of first class accommodation for up to 8 persons (2 queens, 2
singles, 1 double). The open concept living room, dinning room and
kitchen has a glorious pine cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, a
Jotul woodstove/fireplace and wonderful ocean views. The glassed in
sun porch provides panoramic 270 degree views of the open ocean and
the waves from England and France breaking on the reef, as well as
Frying Pan Island and with the scenic Port Medway lighthouse. The sun
porch is also an ideal place to watch the many birds and animals that
frequent the property.

Guests who wish may have double the space, and the views, by adding
on the spacious and bright lower level of Beach Haven. Previously
known as ‘Wind Song'and the summer home of a Swiss gentleman for 14
years until we bought it in 2003, Beach Haven has an interesting
'architectural' history. The main level was built as a complete house
(with the three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open concept living room,
dining room and kitchen all with a pine cathedral ceiling). He then
had the whole house raised and put in a complete downstairs, so the
'lower level' is much higher and brighter then a conventional
basement, it is about 2.5 feet below grade. In keeping with the Swiss
style, there is no connecting inside stairway between the main level
and the lower level, one goes in to the lower level directly from the
outside. It is beautifully finished with hardwood floors and pine
walls. One of the main features of interest in the recreation room is
the regulation Brunswick slate pool table. Consisting of a huge
recreation room, large bedroom (twins) and a spacious three piece
bath, this extra space is a perfect add on for large family
gatherings or offers a quiet working space for guests who are taking
a ‘working holiday'.

This lower level is available only to families or groups who are
renting the main level (that is we never rent it as a separate unit)
for an extra fee of $600 (high season, shoulder season, $300/per
week.

Assurance of quality is featured with excellent housekeeping and a
fully equipped home-away from home: spacious glassed in sun porch,
ocean-view deck with outdoor furniture, jotul woodstove fireplace,
kitchen with 6 full-sized appliances (washer, dryer,dishwasher,
fridge, stove, microwave), kitchenware, very comfortable beds (2
queens, 4 singles, 1 double), excellent linens, satellite TV, VCR,
phone/fax, stereo, quality furnishings, books and games, picnic
table,gas BBQ.



 

     Attractions 


On Property
With six plus acres to explore, there are a wide range of
opportunities, from relaxing on the deck with a book to more active
pursuits such as ocean swimming and beach combing. It's a dream
location for photographers and other artists. An organic vegetable
and herb garden, a lily pond, flower beds and closed cropped lawns
are available close to the house. Groomed paths lead to the
saltwater pond and your own private sand and pebble beach, offering
endless opportunities for swimming, beach combing, exploring the
rocks and tidal pools, beach campfires, bird spotting (e.g. eagles,
cormorants, osprey, sea ducks,piping plovers) and animal watching
(e.g. seals,foxes, rabbits, raccoons). An all-but-deserted world
class white sand beach is a two minute stroll down our private lane.
