Stay in an architecturally charming house overlooking more than 800 feet of beautiful Union River Bay shoreline with uninterrupted views of Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. The house has four bedrooms, two full baths and a double height living room with fireplace and with panoramic windows to enjoy the eastern exposure view of Union River Bay and Mt Dessert Island.
Just 30 feet from the shore, the house is so close you can hear the water lapping on the beach. Enjoy the loons, eagles, seals and other wildlife right from the expansive deck overlooking the water. The wonderful sights, sounds and experience of Maine are truly at your footsteps! The property includes more than 30 acres of beautiful nature: fields, beach and woods to explore and enjoy. Blueberries are available for picking.
The house is a wonderful example of modern cedar shake. No plain white walls inside, it's fully paneled in a natural pine that really brings home the feeling of being in Maine.
The four bedrooms and two full bathrooms are nicely split between opposite wings extending from the central living room, allowing for maximum privacy. The master bedroom has a queen bed and views of both the water and woods. The other three bedrooms are: single with twin bed, double with separate twin beds and double with two twin beds that can either be combined or separated. Rooms have water views and breezes and separately controlled heat for chilly nights.
The kitchen opens to the living room, is nicely equipped and has its own convenient entrance from the driveway. There are two decks, an expansive one overlooking the water with beach access and a smaller sun-filled one facing the woods. Easy water access from the drive for launching small watercraft.
Please note that rental periods are for a minimum of one week and the maximum occupancy is seven persons.
Our family are the original owners, having bought the property and built the house.
James Talalay purchased this house in 1974
Once we saw the view, we knew right away that we had found our spot in Maine.
The best part of our trip to Maine was this house. It's host all by itself! Gorgeous waterfront property and a prime location for kayaking (bring your own kayaks) The house was clean and set up perfect for 2 families to stay there and have privacy. The kitchen was the most well-equipped out of any rental house we have ever stayed in (Yes! They have pie plates!!). The fireplace was a great added touch, even in June as nights do get chilly. The deck is the perfect place for relaxing with coffee or wine. We saw seals, dolphins, and bald eagles all from the beach here. Just for a reference, it''s about 20-30 min away from Acadia/Bar Harbor and 5 minutes away from a lobster pound. If traveling up here again, I would recommend this property to anyone.
I am working on a book and wanted to get away from the busy-ness of life. I found great respite and inspiration in this house.
The property is conveniently located in Surry, 10 miles from the charming village of Blue Hill and 10 miles from the town of Ellsworth not far from Bar Harbor and just 20 miles from Acadia National Park. Fresh lobsters are only a mile down the road. Blue Hill is a center for arts and music, and the gateway to the Penobscot Peninsula communities and the Deer Isles.
The area offers opportunity for gallery hopping, fine dining, swimming, bicycling, hiking and cruising. Ellsworth has movies, great stores and supermarkets, cafes and banking. You'll also find several outdoor shops happy to rent bikes, kayaks, fishing gear, wet suits, whatever you need to enjoy what Maine has to offer. Don't miss the LL Bean outlet! Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a short drive from Ellsworth and feature endless recreation activities, wonderful hiking, and great places to eat and explore.
