About Shawn Robinette

We moved to Maine in 1997 from Seattle. We own a coffee shop/bakery in Southwest Harbor by the name of Milagro Coffee & Espresso.

Shawn Robinette purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Shawn Robinette chose Downeast and Acadia

The Acadia area of Maine is one of the prettiest areas in the country. Once you get here you will know immediately why we decided to settle here.

What makes this cottage unique

Staying at our unique beach cottage is like living on a houseboat but without the rocking motion. The cottage is built right on the beach. In fact at high tide the water comes all the way up to the seawall. Looking out across the bay is so peaceful and calming. The majority of our bookings at this cottage are from repeat customers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us stay here again. This is the most relaxing spot we have found. We can't wait to come back next year!

Amazing

  • 4 of 5

Great views, nice amenities. Kayaking out the back door goes a long way with us. Nice off-street parking and front garden.

Beautiful Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Watermark cottage in Surry Maine was a beautiful place to stay on the water. The cottage had everything you need and the setting was incredible. It was peaceful and a great place to just walk the beach or sit and watch the tides change. We enjoyed the early morning sunrises and looking at the stars late at night since the sky was so dark and clear. The Lobster Shack just down the road was a nice place to walk to and eat seafood on the pier. You could watch their boat going out early in the day to catch the lobster. The blueberry pie was very good. We also found fun hiking in Blue Hill...seeing wild blueberries growing and wonderful views. Nearby towns offered some good places to eat and Acadia park is not that far filled with hiking trails. The owners Shawn and Brian were great with communication and run a bakery coffee shop in the area which is worth a visit. Our family really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and would highly recommend it to others.

Great House with difficult stairs

  • 4 of 5

The house had beautiful views and was very comfortable. Our only concern was that the only access between floors was circular staircases. They were difficult to use between floors in the night since the only bathroom was not on the floors with bedrooms. It was difficult to get suitcases upstairs with the circular staircases as well.

We loved watching the sun rise over the water.

What a wonderful and relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The view was lovely and it was just so peaceful looking out at the water. We enjoyed the proximity to Bar Harbor and Acadia, but loved coming back "home" after our adventures. We got lobster several times from Perrys right down the road. So yummy! We enjoyed meeting Shawn and Brian at their coffee shop in Southwest Harbor. Again, very yummy! Would definitely recommend this property!

Wonderful house right on the water with great sunrises.

  • 5 of 5

The house, Watermark, is about 50 minutes from Acadia in a wonderfully very quiet location. Clean, well maintained, an easy floor plan, a highly workable kitchen and lots of windows, it is a great place to just sit and watch the waves. It is restful. We would like to return again in the future.
