Sadly as I write this review I am sitting in gate 4 at Bangor International waiting for the flight home from a beautiful stay at this incredible retreat from reality. It is a perfect cabin in a perfect setting with everything within distance. It poured one day but we were very comfortable to just stay in and enjoy the home. Thank you Laura for your kind hospitality. Anyone looking to rent....DON'T hesitate!
Our first vacation in Maine- Awesome!!!!!!!!
This was our first visit to Maine. Luckily we found this log cabin available for one week in August. Sadly we had only one week. We could have spent the entire summer at this gem.
The cabin and the setting are amazing. We enjoyed every moment. We took daily trips to Acadia Park, hiking on trails. The evenings we spent on the beach, watching the crabs in the water at high tide.
Our last evening was truly unforgettable. We had high tide around 9pm. The water was so calm, as we have never seen. The sky was a wonder, with billions of galaxies in sight. My 8 year old son saw the Milky Way for the first time in his life. In this tranquillity the only noise was made by the seals bark on the nearby island.
Thank you Laura and family for sharing this "piece of haven" with us.
Your house is truly a place where one desires to return.
Rent this property but leave a week for me
There are so many good things to say about this property that it is difficult to put them into a coherent review. We had a wonderful week at this meticulously maintained house in Surry. The very usable beach faces the southwest so the sunsets were great, and the tides although around 12 ft did not send the water too far from shore at low tide. If you’ve rented beach properties in Maine you know that this is special. The deck was spectacular and picks up the afternoon sun, which can be sheltered by an awning if you prefer to have the sun around you but not on you. My wife and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and friendly people in the area who actually smiled and waved. The house lies off a nine mile long, well-paved dead end road. For those of you who enjoy a relaxed bicycle ride with the family in the morning this spells heaven. From this location we could find just about anything we wanted to do within a 45 minute drive and still return to a peaceful haven that the owners helped feel like home. We...will return.
Relaxing Vacation Home with Beautiful Views
You couldn't choose a more perfect spot. The house is clean and beautiful and has everything you could need on vacation. The views from the deck and beach are stunning with sweeping views of the Blue Hills. The kayaking is spectacular with a ahort paddle to see the seals lounging on Jeb's Island. The house is very private down a 1/2 mile well maintained dirt road. My husband and I are avid runners and beautiful Newbury Neck Road is quiet enough that we could run with our 2 dogs with no worries about heavy traffic. We managed to hit Perry's twice for a delicious lobster dinner. The house is close to Ellsworth and Mount Desert Island but we decided to stay close to the house, run, kayak and read on the beautiful deck. Laura, Jay and their daughters could not have been nicer or more accomodating...happy to help when asked but respecting your privacy. We would highly recommend this house for a relaxing vacation on the coast of Maine.
10th anniversary get away~
My husband and I wanted to hike Acadia for our 10th wedding anniversary but also wanted to escape to a private wonderful home where we could take our baby (Siberian Huskey) Luke. We found this magical home close enough, yet far enough away. It was like we were on our own private island surrounded by beauty inside and out~ the sunsets and sunrises were amazing!! This is a home that has been well loved and cared for and it shows, the energy in the home was peaceful and loving. We took the kayak our to Jeb Island and played with the seals...Luke played with Cookie the neighbor's dog who stopped by everyday to say hello~ Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer...but there's always next year~ Thank you Laura for sharing this lovely home with us and allowing Luke to come along~ we all had such relaxing, wonderful vacation full of laughter love and light~ I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a private peaceful get away~
The cabin on the water
My husband and I rented the cabin for 2 weeks . The cabin is very well maintained,clean and has all the amenities we needed.The photos are accurate descriptions of the property which is secluded and peaceful Laura and Jay made us extremely welcome,Jay even took us out on his boat for a trip! The cabin is in a beautiful location,steps away to a charming bay.The sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night,the birds wake you in the morning.My daughter and her husband took the canoe out across the bay to an uninhabited island where they saw eagles and seals.I was a customer at the lobster pound four times! We had many memorable evenings on the spacious deck watching the sunsets,relaxing with a glass of wine. Once in a rainstorm we got the awning out and sat underneath, dry, to enjoy the storm! Bar Harbor is a neat little town with good restaurants,and the Lighthouse tour by boat is a blast.Acadia is beautiful,be sure to go to Jordan Pond for their popovers...Than you Laura and Jay, one day we want to go back to your cabin.
