A Perfect Vacation in a Perfect Setting
Submitted: August 15, 2011

To say we hated to leave Surchin's End, at the end of our stay, would be a gross understatement. My wife and I have vacationed on the Maine coast six other times, but our stay at Surchin's End was, by far, the most restful and enjoyable. This time we were accompanied by my wife's sister and her husband, both of whom had never visited Maine. They were both enthralled by the beautiful view of Frenchman's Bay and Cadillac Mtn. from the deck of Surchin's End and the wonderful accommodations of the property (as were my wife and I).
Being located between Bar Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula, Surchin's End afforded the perfect location for day trips to both areas. Short drives to Winter Harbor, Prospect Harbor, Birch Harbor, and Corea gave us access to out-of-the-way antique shops and antiquarian book stores....as well as lovely gift shops, local crafts, and fresh garden produce.
The house is beautifully appointed, homey, and comfortable. Everything one needs to make one feel at home can be found at Surchin's End. Mark and Di Landman are the perfect hosts. They are absolutely the most friendly and accommodating couple imaginable. From the unexpected but lovely bottle of local wine upon our arrival to the nice note awaiting us upon our arrival home, we can say nothing but good things about our Maine vacation at Surchin's End.
If you're looking for a wonderful and affordable place to stay on the Maine coast that has scenic ocean views, I would heartily recommend you try Surchin's End. Our stay there was marvelous and I'm sure you would enjoy your stay there, too.
I won't even mention the $5.75 lobsters to be found 4 miles down Highway 1....at Tracey's Restaurant (owned by a local lobsterman). These lobsters and clams are taken from the sea the day you eat them.....yummmmmmy.
I know you'll enjoy Surchin's End as much as the four of us did.
