Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

Great house for a family

  • 5 of 5

Great house! We spent a week here while looking for houses. 4 kids and two adults. The house was warm and toasty in the cold March and April snow. Loved the wood burning stove. Easy access to all the areas we needed. Nice to have a washer, dryer as well. Ocean was a short walk down the road. We loved taking a little hike there to watch the sun sets. Would defiantly stay again

Surry, Maine

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful stay! The house had all of the amenities listed and then some! Especially for kids, this house is well equipped and the location is great - close to downtown Blue Hills, Surry and a 30/40 min drive to Acadia. Also, the owner was easily accessible and incredibly helpful during our stay. He provided us with local recommendations that were on point!

There were some things I would have liked to have known prior to booking and they are as follows:

While it is noted in the description that the beach is a short walk, it really is a walk up and down a hill to the end of the street - a solid 3-5 minutes. I imagine if you had kids, you would be making this trip back and forth quite a bit and it would be somewhat strenuous. And while it is a private beach, it is shared with the neighbors on the street as well. That being said, we spent almost the entire week at that beach, day and night. The owners even provided us with wood to make a bonfire each night and the sunsets are beautiful!

The screens on half of the bedroom windows either weren't there or the windows didn't open, so it got quite warm in half of the bedrooms. Hopefully this has been addressed since our stay.

Overall though we had a very relaxing stay!
