Surry House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps - With Ocean Views

Book this beautiful home as your base to explore Acadia National Park and all the surrounding beauty of small town, seaside Maine communities!

1860 Historic Home with Living Room with Dining Area, Entry Room, Kitchen, Two Queen Bedrooms, One Double Bedroom. Shower and claw foot tub. Three decks to enjoy or grill out on. Private entrance.

Two unit house, owners occupy other half of house and are here if you need us, but gone most days working on Mount Desert Island.

The house sits on a large yard with beautiful gardens. Plenty of room to stretch out. Private fenced in side yard devoted to you and your pet.

Original finish work includes white pine floors, stained glass windows and a comfortable antique claw foot tub.

House overlooks the ocean across the street and Downeast Maine's best kept secret is less than a mile down the road with a large, quiet, public and very dog friendly beach for beach combing, sun bathing, swimming, surfcasting, boating or for just enjoying the grand view of Acadia National Park's mountains.

Perry's Lobster Shack restaurant is right near the beach where you can bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy fresh Maine lobster on the pier overlooking beautiful views of harbor boats and Acadia National Park.

Rental property is adjacent to Blue Hill Heritage Trust Land scenic trails with Furth Wildlife Sanctuary and the Talalay Nature Sanctuary each having two miles of maintained trails. Just down the road is Carter Nature preserve which has .6 miles of trails along the shoreline. Blue Hill Mountain is nearby with 2.5 miles of trails up a scenic mountain with views of Blue Hill Bay, Acadia, and Camden Hills.

Surry and Blue Hill are just far enough away, but an easy drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, to get away from the crowds. Come back from a long day of sight seeing, hiking or biking on Acadia's 47 miles of carriage trails and relax on the front porch of this beautiful, historic home.

Couples rate: for parties of two or less, deduct $25 from daily rate.

Joseph and Rebecca have lived in Maine for seven years. We love Maine and will gladly share our knowledge of the area during a stay at our home.

Joseph works for a non profit, The Downeast Salmon Federation or DSF, focusing on the restoration of endangered Gulf of Maine Atlantic salmon. Joseph is a field biologist who concentrates on habitat improvement and river stability.

Joseph also produces homemade jams and BBQ sauces sold at his local stand.

Rebecca is a landscape manager working on Mount Desert Island with a focus on native plants and flower gardens.

The two of us love to garden. We have been growing large quantities of garlic and currently have thirty five varieties on the property.

Please feel free to ask us any questions about the property. Our goal is to create a welcome environment for you to enjoy.

Joseph McKerley purchased this house in 2010

This property is a classic. Built in 1860, the house still holds many of its unique qualities of the past. Its curved plaster walls, stained glass windows and fine wood trim work welcome you. The three covered porches prompt you to relax outside and enjoy a glorious Maine sunset with your ocean view of Union River Bay.

The property has a fenced in portion of yard that the pets of our guest are welcome to use.

Excellent vacation.

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations at the lobster dog house were terrific. The living space was comfortable and gracious with many windows to soak in the professionally landscaped gardens that surrounded the House. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the attention to details were unsurpassed. I highly recommend this rental.

Unparalleled Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
I don't know where to begin. Honestly. The owners made us welcome by email before we even arrived. We were greeted with open arms. The house is very comfy, with tons of charm, and we were provided more than we expected. We were even given an extra cot for my nephew, tips on where to go, tech help when the tv reset, and so much more. And the price for 2 families was cheaper than separate hotel rooms. If I or my friends are ever here again, this is my home away from home.

A Lovely Surry Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is our second visit to this lovely home. We love coming here to bike and walk the scenic Newbury Neck area....as well as to bike the carriage roads in Acadia. This period home is spacious and spotlessly clean. We are sticklers on comfortable beds and bedding and thought the two rooms we have used were perfect. The kitchen appears to have plenty of essentials for people who do like to cook....but we only used it for small breakfast cooking and coffee. It's great to relax on the front porch and take in the view...grab a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening and sit for a while! We know we be coming back next year as the price is right and the accommodations are ideal. (Additional note: We needed some quick bike repairs and found a great bike/sport shop about 15 minutes away in Ellsworth. Handy to know this if you are going to be doing a lot of biking).

Perry's Lobster Shack

Newbury Neck Road is a mecca for cyclists, walkers, beach combers, sunbathers and surf casters. A beautiful, family friendly, quiet, pebble sand public beach is located less than 1 mile from the property and offers free parking and pets are welcome. The beach is a hidden jewel in an area where public access to beaches is hard to find.

Just next to the beach is 'Perry's Lobster Shack' where you can bring a bottle of wine to watch the sunset as they serve you a menu of lobster dinners, crab rolls, clams and ice cream on the pier overlooking Acadia N.P.

The rental property is adjacent to Blue Hill Heritage Trust lands which offer miles of woodland and coastal hiking. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a short drive away. We are minutes away from the Blue Hill community where arts and fine dining abound. Less than 40 minutes to Mid-Coast Maine towns of Belfast and Camden. One hour from Bangor International Airport and 30 minutes to Bar Harbor International Airport. Miles of back roads, oceans vistas and quaint Downeast Maine small towns to explore.
