Keywords: Oceanfront cottage deepwater shorefront secluded
My family has owned this property since the mid seventies. Dee lived here permanently for 17 years. John and I consider moving back permanently at some point in the not-so-distant future.
Dee purchased this cottage in 1975
Pristine refuge on a quiet, tide-charged, nature abundant, deeply wooded, ocean front peninsula. 15 miles from the village. Exquisite opportunities for biking, hiking, boating, swimming, roasting marshmallows and sitting around a wood stove. Great refuge from the crowds and easy distance from Acadia National Park for day tripping.
Waterfront tranquility, access to nature, privacy and stunning views across the bay to Acadia National Park. Perfect for sailing. You are welcome to anchor right out front. Kayaks can be rented and dropped off right at your doorstep.This sort of deep water pristine shorefront, where you walk to the beach from your front yard, is an increasingly endangered species. Enjoy it while it lasts!
"Summer was almost gone when we suddenly decided that we would need a
vacation. Since in Northern Virginia area where we live was quite hot, we
thought that Maine would be a good choice. We haven't been before up there
and therefore only when I started to look for a rental I realized it could
be difficult to find something that we would like. I almost abandoned the
search when my husband surprisingly (he usually doesn't get himself involved
in vacation's planning) send me the link and the Mapquest satellite view of
a cottage that happened to be opened only for a week. By a lucky coincidence
that week was one of our two possibilities. We are quite picky and we had
some requirements: waterfront, open view, inflatable launching possibility,
fishing, biking and running possibility, a small to medium sized cottage (it
was about us two). I couldn't believe it! The cottage answered "yes" to our
requirements. We booked it and here we were on our way to find out
that more was expecting for us.... the location has magnificent views, the
mysterious combination of water and mountain, the cottage is the coziest and
homiest we have seen, everything in the house is carefully selected and
designed throwing you gracefully back in time, and there is nothing (and we
literally mean NOTHING) that you would need and it won't be there; from all
sorts of kitchen stuff to binoculars and fishing gear; even a rowing boat!
And then, in one of the evenings we invited Dee over for a glass of wine.
The top of the surprises came when we met the nicest and friendliest
We left the place with our souls full of optimism and nostalgia promising
ourselves that we will be back and we will bring our grown up sons and their
girlfriends too.... the cottage can easily fit 6 persons.
It was for us a wonderful vacation spent in a piece of heaven...."
Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

My husband and I cherished our visit! The decorum and essence of the home were hospitable and inviting. It's hard to explain but it felt as if the sunrises over the ocean and the sounds of the water, along with the beauty of the surrounding woods and the solitude therein changed our sense of time. We adventured through the countrysides antiquing and light house hunting. We visited Acadia and spent a day hiking, which was probably my favorite experience! We savored blueberry pie, and admired the art and beauty of the Blue Hill area. We left Surry with some of the mundane of life washed away by the breathtaking beauty of Down East!
My husband and I rented this beautiful cottage for the week and loved it. This was our first time in Maine and we enjoyed waking up each morning to the beautiful ocean and peaceful surroundings. . The cottage was simply adorable and is equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed going to Bar Harbor and some of the other harbor towns. One of our favorite meals was at Perry's Lobster Shack just minutes away. We had a terrific time in Maine!
From my first visit three summers ago I felt like I was coming home as I drove down the lane to this bit of paradise by the sea. Each visit has held its own wonderful gifts. The view is beyond spectacular and for me nothing beats watching the water, mountains & sky as they change throughout the day. This year's surprise was seeing a bald eagle fly over the beach twice and once over my head as I sat on the deck! Dee has created a comfortable oasis where one can step away from the bustle of life, yet have easy access to Blue Hill, Ellsworth & Acadia National Park. One of my dreams is to return to experience the area as things start to slow down with the hint of autumn in the air. Thank you Dee for sharing this home away from home!
We booked a week in early Sept. 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and quiet, isolated property overlooking Union River Bay and the mountains of Acadia NP. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and private. Lots of guides, books and maps to nearby attractions and activities in the cottage. The large sketch book and crayons were a bonus. Great location between Blue Hill peninsula and Acadia. Kitchen was well stocked with supplies, including a lobster pot, for meals. Only wished we could have spent more time there. An ideal place to get away from the grid, crowds and to unwind.
Having never rented from VRBO, we didn't know what to expect. This little gem far exceeded all expectations! The cottage was charming, immaculate, and well maintained. Dee has thought of everything, from a well stocked kitchen, complete with coffee and hot chocolate, loads of towels, comfy beds, and a kayak. The view from the deck can't be beat! The most relaxing vacation we have had in years. I have already shared the link with friends. Can't wait to return!
What a beautiful cottage and setting. Nature's silence except for the loon's nightly greeting, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, wonderful owners. Thank you Dee for a great vacation. We'll definitely be back. Dave + Mary Lou

Pets are $100 additional, each pet. They must first be approved by me, have their rabies shots and flea and tick meds, get along with other dogs and people, and not be habitual barkers. If you've stayed with me before, it's likely that I will just charge for one pet even if you bring 2. Just talk with me ahead of time? Thanks!
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
