My family has owned this property since the mid seventies. John and I have lived here for long periods of time and plan on moving back permanently at some point in the not-so-distant future.
Dee purchased this cottage in 1975
Why Dee chose Surry
Pristine refuge on a quiet, tide-charged, nature abundant, deeply wooded, ocean front peninsula. 15 miles from the village. Exquisite opportunities for biking, hiking, boating, swimming, roasting marshmallows and sitting around a wood stove. Great refuge from the crowds and easy distance from Acadia National Park for day tripping.
What makes this cottage unique
Waterfront tranquility, access to nature, privacy and stunning views across the bay to Acadia National Park. This sort of deep water pristine shorefront, where you walk to the beach from your front yard, is an increasingly endangered species. Enjoy it while it lasts!
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Summer was almost gone when we suddenly decided that we would need a
vacation. Since in Northern Virginia area where we live was quite hot, we
thought that Maine would be a good choice. We haven't been before up there
and therefore only when I started to look for a rental I realized it could
be difficult to find something that we would like. I almost abandoned the
search when my husband surprisingly (he usually doesn't get himself involved
in vacation's planning) send me the link and the Mapquest satellite view of
a cottage that happened to be opened only for a week. By a lucky coincidence
that week was one of our two possibilities. We are quite picky and we had
some requirements: waterfront, open view, inflatable launching possibility,
fishing, biking and running possibility, a small to medium sized cottage (it
was about us two). I couldn't believe it! The cottage answered "yes" to our
requirements. We booked it and here we were on our way to find out
that more was expecting for us.... the location has magnificent views, the
mysterious combination of water and mountain, the cottage is the coziest and
homiest we have seen, everything in the house is carefully selected and
designed throwing you gracefully back in time, and there is nothing (and we
literally mean NOTHING) that you would need and it won't be there; from all
sorts of kitchen stuff to binoculars and fishing gear; even a rowing boat!
And then, in one of the evenings we invited Dee over for a glass of wine.
The top of the surprises came when we met the nicest and friendliest
We left the place with our souls full of optimism and nostalgia promising
ourselves that we will be back and we will bring our grown up sons and their
girlfriends too.... the cottage can easily fit 6 persons.
It was for us a wonderful vacation spent in a piece of heaven...."
Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
