September Member of the Month – Marybeth Keener, Meadowbrook Estates

Monday, October 1st, 2018

I honestly feel that my success has been because of my experience with purchasing properties for renovation and making them into homes.

As many people know, this property was such a large “house” – with such a unique layout – that it would never be used as a single family property. However, as soon as my husband and I saw the interior of the property, we knew immediately that this place could be restored to all its glory, and with some personal touches, be used in some type of business.

When I was younger, I had briefly fixed up and rented out homes as a property manager. So once again, reaching into our background, we decided to go into lodging (just another rental business – although short term now).

On May 1st, 2018, we opened up just the Guest House – which has three bedrooms and four bathrooms and lodging of up to 6 guests. Our first group booked May 2, and we have been booked almost every weekend, and many times during the week, ever since.

In the meantime, we have finished the renovations and are set to bring the other guest suites of the Estate online. Our website will be up and running with full descriptions and availability of these suites as of October, 2018.

In the future, we hope to expand our original business plan and make the Estate available for retreats of all kinds. We will specialize in Wellness and Corporate Retreats.

My husband and I joined the Marlborough Business Association because we knew that

we would be needing the services and resources of many of our fellow business owners in Marlborough. It’s been a mutual partnership, as many businesses have recommended us, and, in turn, we have recommended many of the businesses in town as places for our guests to use.

And according to our guests feedback, Marlborough has many good restaurants, fun venues and easy access to a wide area of attractions to visit.

We hope that this continues into the future!
