Five Star Vacation Home!

We have been visiting Maine every year for the past 12 years (since we first discovered the Bar Harbor area) and I have to say that this was our best vacation yet! The home in Surry was simply amazing. It had everything we could possibly want or need. With 4 generations of our family on this visit, we didn't feel the least bit cramped! There was space for everyone! I awoke each morning to the most amazing sunrises while still laying in our bed. My grandchildren loved combing the beach each morning looking for sea glass and sea critters, my husband took the kayak out and it was a perfect spot for biking for the whole family (being on a quiet street). We played basketball, made Smores at nite in the fire pit, relaxed in the Hot Tub, and had family pool tournaments. Yet, we were less than 30 minutes from Mount Desert Island, so our days were spent enjoying that amazing Park! The homeowner, Mike, was the perfect host, greeting us upon our arrival and making sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. I used to think that staying on the Island was the best location, but now I truly believe that renting a home off the Island is a better choice, as you get to see so much more of the wonderful Maine coast and all the special little harbor towns. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants a special place for their "Down East" vacation! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!
