Great view and locale but overall lacking

  • 2 of 5

This review applies to the "Wine Barrel" property.

View - 5/5 stars - You have an excellent view of the river and ocean from the back door.

Amenities - 2/5 - There is a fire pit, some lounge chairs, and a nice grassy area just outside the back door. The Jacuzzi did not work properly after we arrived (its temp was lukewarm) and we were refunded the cleaning fee for it after our stay. That was unfortunate because the Jacuzzi was one of the reasons we booked this property.

Interior of property - 3/5 - While the furniture and decor is old and worn, the interior structure itself has very unique character which we enjoyed.

Cleanliness - 1/5 - while it did not ruin our stay, we will not book this property again. There were dead rolly polly bugs on the kitchen counter behind the toaster (yuck!), in the cabinet where the games were, and presumably fleas also in the upstairs. While my wife did not suffer, I left with 20 or so bug bites all over my body and was itching for a few days after.

Location 4/5 - you are just a short drive to the beach. Albion doesn't offer much in the way of restaurants and nightlife which for us adds to its appeal.

What a View!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and would love to visit Beam's End again.

We had stayed at Stanford Inn several times before. Your small homes are a much better value, far more private and more relaxed.

I've told all my co-workers and friends about your homes and directed them to your website. The office staff was very helpful in returning my lost 'binder' last year.

Thank you.

Wonderful tri[

  • 4 of 5

We loved your Wine Barrel vacation rental! and would stay there again!

There was a ton of firewood to use, candles for atmosphere and lots of staples in the pantry. We didn't feel like we could run out of anything.

Overall, the house was very clean. Although the upstairs carpet is starting to look a bit dirty.

The staff was very pleasant to deal with. We had a problem at first with the hot tub only being 92 degrees, but your staff helped solve the problem.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We love the wine barrel cabin! I think it is perfect the way it is.

We have stayed with another company before and that cabin was lovely too. The difference is that the wine barrel has a hot tub and a beautiful view and the other cabin we stayed at did not.

Incredible little cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a really lovely, special stay. What an incredible little cabin!

My only issue was that the first night we found quite a bit of roly-poly bugs crawling around the pink carpet upstairs. It felt like the carpet had not been vacuumed. Everything else seemed very clean.

It was a lovely stay and we were pleasantly surprised to find the cabin so full of amenities. Thanks for an easy, comfortable, special stay!
