About Cheri for Daybreak Cottage

John is a 'many generation Mainer' ( Civil War land grant)and has always dreamed of having a 'salt-water farm'. We acquired 5.5acres on the bay 27. ago and were finally able to move here in 2001.He calls it 'paradise', and his many fruit trees attest to that. I like the flowers and he does the veggies and fruits. The yard is a good size for kids to be safe and able to run around. We have a resident horse named Mirage, Raj for short, who is friendly and likes an occasional carrot or apple. We also have 12 laying hens who gift us daily with the BEST tasting eggs ever! A swing set is waiting for the little ones.

The family rounds out with our Jack Russell ROSY and Australian Shepherd MATTIE (Matilda Belle)

We have lived in Maine for 50 years, previously the Bangor area. John has recently retired from an embroidery and garment decorating business and I am a retired R.N.and Polarity therapist.

We also have a restored John Alden wooden sailboat which moors out front. We also have a mooring available if needed.

Cheri for Daybreak Cottage purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Cheri for Daybreak Cottage chose Downeast and Acadia

We chose Newbury Neck for it's beauty and quiet. Surry Village is surrounded by small Maine towns with much charm- you'll love exploring them or not !

What makes this cottage unique

The view accross to the Acadia mountains is stunning and ever-changing as the sun rises and sets each day, always an awesome scene, very therapeutic.

Terrific spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Surry. While it is a bit away from Acadia, it is close enough to plan out day trips and far enough to enjoy nice, quiet time away from the crowds. Biking to Perry's Lobster is a real treat -- both for eat-in or take-out. It was a great spot -- we highly recommend it!

Amazing access to a beautiful and secluded beach!

  • 5 of 5

The owners live in a property very close to the cottage, but they were very kind and helpful. They were also respectful of our privacy and we didn't feel like they were looking over our shoulder. The cottage was cozy and comfortable. The highlight of our trip was definitely the easy access to such a gorgeous beach. We were able to have kayaks delivered from the activity shop in Blue Hill which was well worth it. Also, there is an AMAZING coffee and gelato shop just a few miles away called Pugnuts. Conveniently located to Blue Hill - a quaint place with cute cafes and gift shops. It was also fairly close to Acadia National Park (30-40 min) which the kids LOVED, especially climbing on the boulders at the top of Cadillac Mountain.

Peaceful home on the coast of Maine

  • 5 of 5

This home provided the most peaceful, relaxing vacation I believe I have ever had with my family. My husband, daughter, and I spent 5 wonderful days in this beautiful home. We spend two days exploring Acadia park, one day in Bangor, and one day in Bar Harbor. All of those locations are a very short drive from the cottage. Each evening we spent time reconnecting with each other over a game of pool, and one evening was spent making smores by the fire pit. My daughter enjoyed riding the bikes and combing the beach for treasures and seeing what sorts of sea life she could find. Shealso fell in love with the beautiful Maddy. One thing that I was totally surprised by was the early sunrise. Imagine waking up at 4:30 to a room filled with sunshine and thinking that that you've overslept and having the delight of being able to "sleep in" another few hours! Perry's Lobster Shack is very conveniently located about 2 miles from the cottage and they serve delicious fresh lobster and you must try the blueberry pie! Nights were spent falling asleep listening to the ocean waves. The house was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need during the stay. We definitely hope to stay here again.

Beautiful home on the Maine coast

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice home on a large property right in the Maine coastline. We found the owners to be very friendly and accommodating. The home has lots of room and was very clean and nice. We would definitely return.

Perfect Get Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a quiet place to spend a week with my girls (12 and 15) that would be peaceful, fun, and close enough to Bar Harbor to visit but far enough to feel like we were getting away from it all. I really could not have found a more perfect place; John and Liz made us feel so welcomed it was like being in our own home, not a rental, right from the start. The house itself is really beautifully situated; the beach is right down a path out the back steps, the sun sparkles through the windows in the mornings, the stars sparkle at night and the waves, when it's windy, will put you to sleep. It's on a hushed country road with few cars; the quiet in the air is stunning, especially at night. We also fell in love with the dogs - especially Maddie, who we miss - it was like a fringe benefit!

Everything we needed was there; bikes to ride and wood for the outdoor fire pit and even fresh eggs from the chickens. We stopped at Tradewinds in Blue Hill on the way for food - which I recommend - but the cottage has what you would need otherwise - towels and sheets and blankets and a kitchen stocked with the basics, pots and pans and utensils, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Pretty much whatever you need is there, making it a lot easier to unpack and unwind. Liz and John are great hosts, the house is sweet and cozy, and it was as perfect a week as I could have imagined. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 45 minutes), you can't do better. Liz also recommended a boat trip in Bass Harbor (Island Cruises) which was an absolute must, a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks Liz and John for helping us make lifelong memories, we hope to come back!

camden, maine

my home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This spacious cabin offers privacy & comfort. The entrance to Daybreak Lane is tastefully landscaped with arrays of form & color, artfully placed rock walls & a soothing meditation garden. The beach offers solace & gifts, as the surf bathes the sand. Sea glass, star fish, driftwood, await discovery. Vistas of clouds, water & mountains fill me with gratitude as i walk the beach with my collective of women. We have gathered here on several occasions. The hosts are always gracious. The house is clean & well equipped so that we walk in and take over. Liz even brought her personal coffee maker to us when it became apparent that the cottage's coffee unit was not functioning. Thank you again, Liz & John, for being such stewards of the land. I feel that Daybreak Lane Cottage is my home away from home & i look forward to when i will visit again.
