On the ocean, close to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park and only 26 feet to a private beach. Watch seals bask in the sun and frolic in the water from the comfort of a couch or spacious deck. Eagles fly by and regularly perch in nearby trees. Near Ellsworth, Blue Hill, Bucksport, and Bangor. Quaint cottage completely refurbished including new bathroom and kitchen. Very peaceful and quiet. Please read our reviews to see what others have said about their stay with us.
At first I was skeptical because we handled payment via check, outside of the VRBO website. I was looking for other reviews that mentioned this and couldn't find them, so I'll leave this here for anyone else who may be caught off guard - it worked out perfectly fine!
That said, Russ once said to me that this property is not a money maker for him. I now certainly agree. The pictures don't do the view any justice. This was my third time in Maine, and by far the best place I've stayed. The busiest part of the bay is the seals talking to each other at low tide, or the albatross singing in the distance. You get a pretty amazing view of the national park mountains too!
The place had linens, towels, dishware/glassware (even wine glasses), and otherwise fully stocked like a home. You don't need to bring anything except clothes.
It's an ideal home base to travel to Acadia (MDI and Schoodic), and Deer Isle, with everything in between and beyond. Food is nearby, although I'd recommend going to MDI to find some true gems (Thurstons is a must for lobster fans).
All in all, I highly, highly recommend this place. We were so blown away as all our expectations were exceeded and we can't wait to return.
When we arrived at our cottage we were so impressed with the location. It is on a quiet street and it sits on a point overlooking the water. When we opened the door of the cabin it was love at first sight! The woodwork is so beautiful. It felt warm and and inviting. It was clean and very well stocked, so you could easily settle right in and get to your vacation. Everything worked and the water was good to drink. We found lots to do and we were never bored. We were able to view eagles and seals right from the deck! There were plenty of good stores and hiking trails and excellent restaurants close by, so there was no need to travel far for anything. We had a ball and plan to return as soon as we are able to get away again. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Very clean, comfortable cottage with gorgeous view. We saw eagles and seals; enjoyed sitting on the deck and swimming in the bay. This was the best vacations we ever had! We would highly recommend this wonderful place! We would stay here again. Thank you for everything!
The cottage was fantastic. It was in a beautiful and peaceful location, away from the crowds of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, though an easy 30 minute drive away. The cottage was very clean and well kept, perfect for two people. Logistically Russ made the experience very easy for us.
I would highly recommend this cabin/cottage to anyone looking to stay in the area close to Acadia National Park. Location is very close to Ellsworth and about 30-40 minutes to the Park. Just far enough away to have some quiet solitude. The cabin was very clean and the view was wonderful!! Kitchen was sufficiently equipped and bed was comfortable. Owner was very responsive to my messages and made renting this property easy. Would definitely rent again!!
This whole experience was great. The pictures undersell the view, and the place is super clean and comfortable. We made it to Acadia in about 40m. We did everything last minute, but Russel made everything easy for us. Can't recommend enough!
Surry is located conveniently near Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and Blue Hill. Our location is on a private country road. There is great dining, sightseeing, shopping, antiquing within a few miles in any direction.
