About the property

Sleeps 5: 1 queen bdrm. down, 1 queen and 2 twins up; 1 bath with shower

Seasmoke Cottage is the private guest cottage on a 4 acre oceanfront property which also includes the owners' year-round residence. The cottage is located at the narrowest point of the Newbury Neck Peninsula in Surry, Maine. A short walk down a woodland path leads to a shoreline seating area to enjoy sunset views of Morgan Bay, explore tidal pools, and watch seals, osprey, and eagles vie for their fish dinners. A short walk in the opposite direction leads to the Carrying Place Beach, a "warm" water (Maine standards!) swimming beach, or to Perry's Lobster Shack, an area landmark frequented by locals, tourists, and boaters. Newbury Neck Peninsula is ideal for sailing, kayaking, biking, hiking, and long walks with views of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. The "Neck" is situated at the center of some of most scenic places in Maine including Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, the Blue Hill Peninsula, and Downeast Maine. And despite its coastal tranquility, it's only 20 minutes away from shops and restaurants.

Seasmoke Cottage is a comfortable and centrally-located place to head home after long days exploring this part of Maine. Nestled in a wooded setting midway between Morgan and Union River Bays, it faces a clay tennis court used exclusively by the guests. The cottage has its own parking, and guests approach the cottage via a private lighted path.

Its spacious deck, with table, umbrella, dining and lounge chairs, is a sunny place for dining, relaxing, or watching your family play tennis.

The cottage is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped. The living room is comfortably furnished and includes a gas fireplace, especially nice on cool fall evenings. The bookshelves are filled with a broad selection of summer reading, games, and puzzles, including children's toys and books. The satellite TV includes HBO.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed dressed in crisp sheets and elegant bedding. Upstairs, two semi-private "rooms", separated by an enclosed stairwell, feature a queen bed on one side and two twins on the other.

The single bathroom downstairs features a tiled walk-in shower and on-demand hot water.

The kitchen is fully equipped for any meal you might want to make. It has a new Atlantic black granite countertops (2016), ceramic cooktop electric range with self-cleaning oven, a refrigerator with ice-maker, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, Bosch dishwasher (2016), and plenty of pots and pans, bakeware, cutlery, and dishes and glassware.

There is a washer and dryer, but in case you don't want to spend your time doing laundry, there are plenty of extra sheets and towels, including beach towels.

Paper products, laundry and dishwashing detergents, and staple food items like flour, sugar, spices, vinegars, and oils are provided. There is even charcoal for the grill. If needed, there is a pack-n-play crib with sheets, a high chair, and a baby gate for the stairs.

Seasmoke Cottage is thoughtfully equipped and well-prepared to make your time here easy and enjoyable.

Perfect peaceful base camp!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished one of our best family vacations! Seasmoke cottage played a big role in making our vacation a success. We were seeking a clean, quiet, well appointed cottage away from the fray but that would allow us to enjoy Acadia and bluehill area. Each day we launched from the cottage with our two teen/tween boys to hike and bike at Acadia or the surrounding areas. Plenty to see and do. And plenty not to do too! We also enjoyed quiet hours with puzzles and books and playing tennis at the cottage. The cottage is well cared for, and we felt well cared for, too! Had privacy but also access to owners who were always willing to offer suggestions and answer questions should we have any. Would visit this home again!

We love this cottage. It has everything we want: peace and quiet, tennis, and access to the water!

  • 5 of 5

Maryanne and Mark are very caring hosts. Maryanne had the cottage in tip-top shape when we arrived. It was impeccably clean and gracefully decorated. Mark provided extra tennis balls for me to practice my serve which I appreciated a lot. The vistas of the water from the shore are worthy of a postcard, not to mentioned that one can actually swim in the harbor without freezing! This is a place to get away from it all, be close to nature, relax and be inspired.

Lovely cottage in a quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We love the state of Maine so every few years we venture to a different area. We found this lovely cottage and we weren't disappointed. It is tastefully decorated and has everything you need for your vacation. We have stayed at many rentals, but this one is stocked we everything you need . She has everything you need to cook with including spices, sugar etc. The wifi works great. They have recently put in an airconditioning / dehumidifier unit. We used it and it worked great. We enjoyed walking the path to see the bay and seals. Acadia national park , Bar Harbor, southwest and lots of little villages aren't that far away. We didn't use the tennis court, but if you play the court looks great. Mary anne and Marc are there if you need them and are very helpful . We had a. Very nice dinner in Ellsworth at the Union Bay lobster house. Go early it gets very crowded. If you have time and want to go to Canada. We went to St. Andrews for the day. It is a quaint town with lovely shops and restaurants. It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive and don't forget your passports.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Seasmoke Cottage! It is located in a beautiful area of Maine and not too far from Bar Harbor. The cottage is in a perfectly quiet wooded setting and very private even though it is located on the owner's property. A short walk through a charming path through the woods led us to the shore where there are beautiful views of the bay and gorgeous sunsets,and the stars in the sky at night are amazing! It is beautifully decorated with a lot of care,and very warm and cozy. I am not the type of person to stay home and relax on vacation when I could be out sightseeing in the area, but I thoroughly enjoyed being stuck in the cottage on one severely rainy day,reading, relaxing, doing a jigsaw puzzle,and even baked some chocolate chip cookies. MaryAnne and Mark were always available if any problem arose and immediately attended to the problem at hand. If we ever come back to that area I would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Maine vacation

  • 5 of 5

Seasmoke was the perfect cottage for our Maine family vacation. It was perfectly clean and had everything needed to cook family meals. The very short walk to watch the tide come in was so nice! Mary Anne and Mark were wonderful and did everything to make us feel at home. Thank you and looking forward to coming back next year!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and , as well as my Mother thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Smoke Cottage. Such a perfect place to stay and experience Maine. The cottage is centrally located to cute towns and Acadia National Park

The owners thought of everything to make our stay that much more enjoyable for us. My girls loved the upstairs and all the games and play things they had for the kids. The little path to the bay was so serene and the chairs they provided let us enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful view. We got to see porpoise and seals during a beautiful Maine sunset - it was perfect! I am missing Maine and Sea Smoke Cottage so much! Can't wait to come back someday!

Seasmoke Cottage is located midway between Mount Desert Island (with Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park) and the Blue Hill Peninsula. The region features shopping, dining, dramatic scenery, and outdoor recreational opportunities such as swimming, sailing, biking, hiking, and kayaking. A special feature for guests at Seasmoke Cottage is its private Har-tru clay tennis court.

Other Activities: All the tennis you want is possible on your own private Har-tru clay tennis court situated right off the cottage deck. Guests also love the Newbury Neck Beach with the warmest swimming water in the area. There is a lobster shack right down the road where guests can eat on the dock or bring their lobsters back to the cottage deck and enjoy them there. There are local rental businesses that provide bikes, kayaks and canoes, and other recreational equipment. When booking the cottage, just let us know and we'll send you information about that option. And the cottage is located right between two of the most beautifully scenic outdoor areas in Maine: Acadia National Park and the Blue Hill peninsula. Breathtaking locales for hiking, climbing, and long walks abound in the area.
