Great location in beautiful coastal Maine

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable, well equipped and spacious home. If you want to be close to everything but not caught up in the crowds on Mount Desert Island, this is the place for you. There is a gorgeous little private beach just a few minutes walk from the house where you can easily spend a day with a book or paddling in the canoe that comes with the house. Lots of lovely places to visit within a 30-45 minute drive (including Acadia National Park), great places to eat and fantastic ice cream. We would highly recommend staying here

We were a family of 10 and the home was more than adequate for all of us to be comfortable. The ping pong table and basketball game were a big hit for the older kids and the little ones enjoyed all the toys. The location was perfect just a short walk to the water. The owner and the Property Manager responded quickly to a few calls. This is a gem for a large family looking to be together for a week. This area has so much to explore. We found fresh water easily for swimming and kayaking. Thanks for opening your home to us. Lots of great memories made.

Best of everything

  • 5 of 5

No joking... best stocked kitchen, best game room, best extras! When we arrived we were extremely excited to check out the house! The kitchen was big enough for two people to be cooking, with plenty of prep space for extra hands to help. The downstairs bathroom was big, clean and there were plenty of bath towels and toilet paper! I'm not joking, this house was STOCKED! We didn't spend a ton of time in the bedrooms, so the bedrooms were great. One downfall, one of the bedrooms had windows that didn't open. There was a small fan available, but it would have been nice to open the windows at night. The TV area was fine. We weren't in Maine to watch TV, so the small area didn't bother us one bit! The game area was fantastic! The basketball game entertained young and old alike! Many games, books, puzzles, toys... enough to occupy everyone on the rainy days!

The upstairs was perfect for our 5 young kids. The bunks provided them with a fabulous bonding experience. The larger master bedroom was great for my brother and his younger toddler. The bathroom/laundry room was also great. Plenty of towels!

The walk to the beach area was a winding dirt road, but not far. There were plenty of beach towels, water shoes, beach chairs, life jackets... I'm telling you, there was nothing this place didn't have! We spent hours at the water, collecting sea glass, the canoe, fishing, crabbing... lot of fun.

There was plenty of firewood provided at the house and beach!

The best house we have stayed in to date!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and full of great toys and amenities including water shoes in every size, a green canoe with life jackets and a fire pit. What else could you ask for? The location is perfect for enjoying all that Acadia and Deer Island and points in between have to offer, OR you can never leave and spend your days on the lovely rocky beach just a 4 minute stroll down the road. The homeowner is so helpful and very very quick to respond. We are ready to go back next summer!

Awesome for families with kids and even if you don't have kids!

  • 4 of 5

Awesome for families with kids and even if you don't have kids! Our family had a lovely stay at this house. We brought our kayaks and were able to kayak, canoe and swim.yhe water was cold , but that's Maine for ya. The indoor games were a highlight. Had a super kitchen and open floor plan. The tides were really fun to watch throughout the day. The place was close enough to get in and out of Acadia in one day which was also a lovely visit. The recommendation for the lobster shack nearby was one of our favorite spots --we ate there three times! We give this Surry spot our thumbs up .

Beautiful and absolutely glorious!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved the basketball game and table tennis! These things totally entertained them while we unwound from the wedding festivities. The walk to the beach was wonderful. This cabin was as complete as I've ever seen with plenty of anything a family would need on vacation.
