Dream Harbor - Oceanfront with great views of Acadia Natl Park, Surry, Maine
average rating of 5.0 based on 26 reviews

Enjoyed our stay. The house is right on the water. The views across the bay were great.

  • 5 of 5

We were able to see a lot of the area from Surry. We really enjoyed Perry's lobster shack which is about a 1 minute walk from the house. We loved the area.

Sweet little cottage

  • 5 of 5

A sweet little cottage overlooking a harbor full of sail boats and lobster boats. Woke to a fabulous view of the harbor and Acadia National Park across the bay. Often went to bed in the evening to the sound of the ocean lapping against the rocks directly outside the cottage. A lobster pound/restaurant right next door with fabulous lobster rolls, and 60's music wafting across to the cottage. Eleven miles from Ellsworth with plenty of good restaurants. Pug Nuts about six miles away for great ice cream. Ellsworth library offered internet access. Easy trip to Acadia. Fabulous weather, especially at night for very comfortable sleeping.

Cottage was clean and well furnished. Only minor complaint was lack of bathroom sink and need to use limited counter space in kitchen for bathroom accessories. Overall a lovely spot and would definitely come again.

Wonderful restful vacation right on the water

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year my wife and I have spent a week at Dream Harbor. Day trips to Mt. Desert Island and Deer Isle are reasonable distances, but this year we found it very pleasant to spend more time at the cottage and the immediate environs. We especially enjoy the lapping of the water so close to the cottage at high tide.

We had 2 great lobster dinners at Perry's last week (BYOB). We highly recommend the new ice cream/gelato store - Pignuts - in Surry. In Ellsworth, Cellar Bistro is an incredible value between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. 7 days a week (half price beer, wine and small plates). Also in Ellsworth, the Union Village Lobster Pot is worth a visit on a good weather day. They are very busy and don't take reservations - but while waiting outside with a beeper we have seen bald eagles, osprey, great blue heron, and even seals!

Felt like a cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late and felt I was bothering the host. No Worries ! The host left the light on for us and we arrived to a warm cozy cottage awaiting us! Awoke to a foggy Maine morning but quite and surreal atmosphere ! Went and had breakfast at diner in Ellsworth and we came back to a beautiful view. Myself and wifey would stay again if we had more time. Cheri you were a dream Host and I will stay again soon. Thank you

Loved this beautiful little cottage hidden away near Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dream Harbor right along the water about half an hour from Acadia National Park. We enjoyed visits several mornings from a bald eagle that perched in a nearby tree and once even flew into a tree next to our deck. The little cottage was well kept and very clean. We had good contact with the owners who quickly answered any questions we had. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking fora quiet getaway.

We visited Perry's Lobster Shack which is just a few hundred feet away. Great lobster roll. We also hit up Jordan's restaurant in Bar Harbor as well as Geddy's. We also launched our kayak for several trips right from the beach behind Dream Harbor.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have loved this vacation home more. Very clean, and outfitted with everything that you need, and nothing that you don't. The views from the upstairs make getting out of bed difficult. Eating at Perry's lobster shack is a must, delicious and BYOB. The cabin is a great place to use as base for visiting Acadia without staying the more touristy areas. We will be back for sure!

Car: recommended

Surry is off the beaten path but conveniently located near Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill & Ellsworth. Lots to do or do nothing at all. Sightseeing and outdoor activities galore. Nearby shopping, restaurants, and many other activities. Or just grab a book or paintbrush and be 'unplugged' in this cozy retreat in a unique part of Maine where one can truly come coast awhile.
