About the property

3 bedrooms (sleeps 10), 2 full bathrooms and1 half bathroom

Originally built as a sea captain's home in 1835, this charming house situated on 6 acres of oceanfront property has been totally renovated. The location couldn't be better to capture the stunning views of the ocean and the mountains of Acadia National Park. You will have access to a private beach and a boat launch. The house faces Acadia, and offers spectacular views of the sunrise from the master bedroom. Acadia with its hiking and carriage trails is less than an hour’s drive. You may also wish to explore other lovely towns along the Maine coast such as Blue Hill, Deer Isle, and Castine. Bring your bike, fishing rod, hiking boots, or just a book and enjoy!!

The downstairs was opened up so that one room flows into the other. The large, well-equipped kitchen (15’ x 22’) has an eight foot island with eight seats around it, making it easy to prepare meals while socializing with family and friends and admiring the view of the ocean and mountains. The kitchen also has an oval table with four chairs for easy dining. Just off the kitchen through two French doors is a large deck with round table (seats 8), plenty of chairs and an outdoor grill perfect for outdoor meals and barbecuing. The dining room (13’ x 15’) has a table that accommodates 10 people. The adjacent living room (19’ x19’) offers a comfortable place to relax, enjoy the views of Acadia’s mountains, or watch TV. Also on the first floor is a den (15’ x 15’) with a wood stove, a full size sleeper sofa, and a TV. The first floor has two bathrooms and a laundry room.

On the second floor are the three bedrooms and one bathroom, The spacious master bedroom (14’ x 9’) with a queen bed has beautiful views of the ocean or the starry sky at night. There is a dresser, an armoire, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom (13’x 15’) has a queen sleigh bed. The large third bedroom (15’ x 19’) has one queen bed, two twin beds and a futon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

In 2011 my husband and I spent four weeks at Eastlook (name on the house sign). We enjoyed our stay so much that we revisited in 2012 and stayed for six weeks. Every aspect of our stay was phenomenal. The house itself is spacious and well laid out and presented in an immaculate condition. Even though, in those two years we never met the owners, Rob & Laurie, they were responsible and caring landlords. If an issue presented itself, it was taken care of immediately. The kitchen is a cooks dream and has every known spice, cooking utensil, platters and appliances that one could need, are provided.



The house is situated on a peninsula, seven miles from the main road, so any traffic in front of the house is minimum and positively no noise at night. You are halfway between Blue Hill and Ellsworth; both about a 20 minute drive in opposite directions. There are many good restaurants to choose from, in all price categories from pricey to affordable.



Our grandchildren visited for a week both years and there is much to take advantage of within an hour’s drive, both educational and just fun things to do. Of course you could opt to stay home, as we did on many occasions and just take in the beautiful scenery, cool breezes and wonderful meals on the deck. If you are considering a rental in this area, this house has all you will ever need, you can’t lose.

Extremely Comfortable with an Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this lovely home the first week of September and we could not have been more pleased. The house is quite spacious, light filled, comfortable and immaculate! There was absolutely everything imaginable in the house- so many linens, a well stocked kitchen, books, games, strollers, a pack-n-play and much much more! We did not want for anything while guests in this home. The owners left us a couple of very thoughtful gifts: knowing we had kids in our party, they left makings for S'mores - for the fire pit they have in their yard, as well as coffee and Maine jam. Initially, my niece and her two babies (1 & 3) were not going to be able to join us, but were able to last minute. I emailed Rob and Laurie and without hesitation they said having more guests than originally expected would be no problem. Looking out the front windows from the living room and master bedroom was absolutely peaceful and beautiful. With regard to some other comments about the wifi being a bit slow- I moved to a nearby town in Maine from more populated areas. I was at first in disbelief how the wifi can be slow here! It took me months to get used to. This is not unique to this property. You will find slow wifi in many areas of Maine. Thank you Laurie and Rob for your flexibility and generosity!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at Eastlook. We had 6 adults and 1 toddler staying for the week. The house is spacious. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking meals. There was a washer and dryer in the laundry room which came in very handy. There were plenty of linens available . The house is super clean. When the windows are open, the breeze off the water is heavenly. The views of the water and hills from the home are gorgeous.

My granddaughter loved the swing set and slide in the backyard. We also enjoyed walking to the beach every day to pick shells and play in the sand and visiting Mirage (the horse) across the road. My husband and I went for a long, leisurely walk almost to the end of the road. (next time, I will use more bug spray) We used the firepit to roast marshmallows and make Smores. They have a gas grill next to the deck that we used nightly. In the evening we played games and cards and had a great time relaxing.

If fast internet is a necessity then this is not the place for you. It is adequate for checking emails, etc. If you want to unwind and relax , this is definitely a beautiful place to stay. I would definitely return.

Laurie and Rob were very attentive and responsive to any questions or concerns we had. They are wonderful hosts.

Quintessential Maine

  • 5 of 5

Our first time renting a vacation home and we could not have asked for a better experience, which started with the quick response of the owners, who were very helpful. My parents, husband and three children traveled to Maine for one week and loved our time at Eastview. The home was clean, spacious and had plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen had every gadget we could have asked for. We also enjoyed the fire pit outside and the beautiful, quiet that Eastview offered. Of course, the highlight was the proximity to the ocean. We walked down to explore the private beach and take in the amazing views. My children had fun looking for sea life and I enjoyed looking for sea glass. A bonus is having an excellent lobster "Shack" just down the road.

We were a short drive from Acadia and Bar Harbor and spent a day in each place. We all agreed at the end of our week that we wished we had more time, and we would certainly not hesitate to stay here again.

The home was everything we expected and more!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Eastlook. We had four adults and 4 college students for the week. We had plenty of room for everyone, the kitchen was well supplied and we never ran out of hot water. The property was clean and well maintained.

My kids loved the private beach, as they hung out there almost every evening after we came home from exploring for the day. We spent most of the week at Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor but had a nice peaceful home to return to every evening.

Perry's Crab Shack (a couple of miles up the road) has a great lobster roll and we enjoyed a bald eagle having lunch with us one afternoon at the shack. Pugnuts ice cream was also very good. It is located at the end of Newbury Neck Road. Sidestreet Cafe in Bar Harbor is the place I had my first lobster and 59 Cottage had a very good grilled salmon.

Being from south central Pennsylvania this was our first trip to Maine. We will stay here again when we decide to come back. Meat and potatoes is the regular food of choice in our area so I made it a point to get my fill of different types of seafood all week. I was not disappointed. Didn't care for the pickled wrinkles though.

The weather was beautiful all week. We cooked breakfast almost every day and 4 dinners while we were there. The kitchen was beyond our expectations and the deck off the kitchen was also great. The cool breezes coming off the ocean made it so pleasant to sit on the deck and relax in the evening.

The wifi is slow but so what, we didn't come to Maine to be glued to our ipads or phones the whole time. The only regret we had was that we wanted to stay longer but all good things have to come to an end.

Sincerely

Scott Parks

pictures don't do it justice

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for 6 weeks. It was probably our best summer ever. The house is spacious and beautiful. At various times we had up to 11 people and it never felt crowded. The kitchen is huge and well stocked (lobster pots, seasonings, coffee machine, etc - you don't need to bring much). The owners generously provide linens, cleaning supplies, toiletries...every thing we needed was there. They even left a really pretty and thoughtful gift for us when we arrived. Can't say enough about the attentiveness and responsiveness of our hosts. Any small issues we had were dealt with quickly.

The location is off the beaten path. So peaceful and quiet. It's a quick walk to a great beach. Lots of shells to find and rocks to climb on. The house has plenty of yard space for playing. The kids loved running around outside and we spent many nights toasting marshmallows in the fire pit. There's a horse across the street (Mirage) that will come right up to you if you have a carrot. Our kids loved that!

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. We were able to get anywhere within an hours drive and since we were there for 6 weeks, we really got to do it all.

The only problem we encountered was the Internet. Our phone service wasn't great and the wifi topped out at about 2mbs. We were told by the cable company that some kind of fiber is coming though, so that problem should be resolved at some point. Certainly not the owners fault, just the nature of being so remote. If you want to unplug though - this is a perfect spot to do that.

Overall, it was a perfect vacation. At the house you can take long walks, read books, do puzzles, play games, cookout, eat lobsters (there's a lobster guy right up the road) and spend amazing quality time with your family and friends. A quick drive in any direction brings to all the attractions and touristy things you could ever want to do as well as little beautiful picturesque towns to stroll through.

Thank you Rob and Laurie for sharing your amazing home with us. It was a summer we'll never forget.

One of our best vacations ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, spacious, light filled, airy; kitchen amenities galore; washer-dryer, WiFi Function (could be improved), TV in cozy den. The charm and simplicity of a Captain's house - renovated and modernized.

House keeping provided at end of stay. Lawn maintenance.

Very quiet and peaceful.

Idyllic 4 minute walk to a virtually private beach and calm bay water.

15 minute drive to quaint Blue Hill or Ellsworth. Terrific restaurants and food /wine, general shopping.

Friendly, accommodating owners.

My wife and I did not want to leave…we are heading back next year.

This seaside home on Newbury Neck Road in Surry is in an idyllic location for experiencing the breathtaking beauty of Maine. The ocean front property affords panoramic views of the ocean and the mountains of Acadia National Park. You can walk along the rocky shoreline for miles in any direction, combing for shells, or braving the chilly waters for a swim. The Surry Town Beach is a sandy beach a few miles up the Newbury Neck peninsula. There are bicycle and kayak rentals nearby. Mt. Desert Island is an hour’s drive away, offering hiking trails, carriages paths for cycling or horseback riding, Cadillac Mtn., the Jordan Pond House Restaurant, and the lively town of Bar Harbor. Surry is not far from the scenic coastal towns of Blue Hill, Castine, Stonington, and Belfast, where you can enjoy antiquing, art galleries, and more. Ellsworth is a major town only 20 minutes away where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, movie theatres, and a variety of other shops.
