Surry Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + open loft with 2 twin beds; 1 Bath, Sleeps 6 people

The Almighty Struggle is a small rustic, shingle style cottage, with an oversized deck. The cabin faces the Union River inlet with views of Acadia National Park in down east Maine.

Nestled in a clearing on 14 acres of natural woods and fields, you can see deer, turkey, porcupine, and maybe even a moose. The beach extends 400 feet along the shore and is great for exploring and swimming. It has ledges hosting mussels, crabs, sea urchins, and starfish.

You will enjoy watching the seals, kayaking, swimming, hiking, fishing, and watching the local lobstermen gather their traps.

The cottage is small, clean , and well appointed for couples and small families that want a private outdoor vacation experience.

We are well situated for day trips to Acadia National Park and exploring the villages of the Blue Hill Peninsula.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jan Treworgy

This property has been in our family for over 200 years. It was part of the adjoining properties and was both a working farm and the shore was used by the coastal schooner, "The Revenue" captained by Albert Treworgy.

Jan Treworgy purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Jan Treworgy chose Downeast and Acadia

We have maintained the cottage since we inherited it. Our children have spent many happy summers here. The area is beautiful and it has provided us with a lovely way to teach our kids to live simply and in an ecologically sustainable way. They fish, harvest mussels, clams, and they pick blueberries, raspberries and sometimes even cranberries. They have learned to live in the woods without destroying it. They now are learning sustainable forestry. Everything on a very small scale, but an education outside the classroom for everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

Most visitors comment on how comfortable the beds are. Yes, we do use high end linens and down comforters, but the ocean breezes and the outdoor activities make sleeping a joy. Being up and ready for a whole new adventure tomorrow!

Very wonderful place on the Ocean . We kayaked and enjoyed the typical Maine

waterfront experience. The cottage had all that was needed for a great time.

We cooked fish on the grill and smelled the salt air. Your descriptor was accurate.

Relaxation...just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

The Almighty Struggle is a quaint, charming little cottage along the water. The view from the cabin is fabulous...even when you're doing dishes! The cottage is centrally located to many of the attractions in Acadia / Bar Harbor. We love going for walks on the beach every morning, looking for shells, sea glass, starfish, etc. Sunrise is just beautiful over the Union River looking toward Acadia. We find the cottage very relaxing, just what the doctor ordered!

This was our second visit to the Almighty Struggle. We would highly recommend this little cottage to small groups for want a very relaxing vacation. You can hang out at the cottage or take some day trips. We love our visit to Schoodic Point...packing a lunch and listening to the waves crash on the rocky shoreline. This year we did two visits to nearby Blue Hill, Deer Isle, Stonington, and Brooklin.

The cottage in tastefully decorated and very charming. We did not turn on the TV the entire week and we had a six-year old with us this year. She loved looking for starfish and sea glass on the beach with her grammy and poppy. My brothers wanted to know when we could reach out to Jan and Al and book our vacation for 2016. Relaxing...

Thanks to Jan and Al for opening up their vacation cottage on Newberry Neck to lucky vacationers! Much appreciated...

The Almighty Struggle Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our visit to the Almighty Struggle in Surry was every thing we hoped for & more! It was very relaxing, private. We enjoyed all the comforts of home, but with New England charm. The serenity of the area around the cottage was wonderful: early morning walks down to the beach, coffee & oatmeal with Maine syrup & fresh blueberries on the deck, a fire on the beach at sunset. We had cozy beds with very nice linens and books to snuggle up with. There are many windows to catch the ocean breeze and take in the view. The children did not miss their video games one little bit! We went on several day trips to Acadia National Forest, the Oceanarium and Bar Harbor where we went whale watching and dined on the pier. Mostly every one we met in Maine was very hospitable. We would visit again if the opportunity came along.
