Gorgeous walks and secluded coastline with incredible views of the mountains of Acadia National Park. Approximately 1500 sq ft log cabin, with windows and French doors all along waterside, bedroom equipped with brand new queen (mattress and springs) bed, second room with laundry and full size bed, high ceilings in kitchen, dining area, living room, full kitchen with gas range, full bath with small claw foot tub and shower, whimsical painted furniture, generous waterside cedar decks, charming enamel gas stove, electric baseboard heat and wood stove, outdoor gas grill.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1975

                      About the owner: My family has owned this property since the mid seventies. John and I have lived here for long periods of time and plan on moving back permanently at some point in the not-so-distant future.

                      Why the Owner Chose Surry:
                      Pristine refuge on a quiet, tide-charged, nature abundant, deeply wooded, ocean front peninsula. 15 miles from the village. Exquisite opportunities for biking, hiking, boating, swimming, roasting marshmallows and sitting around a wood stove. Great refuge from the crowds and easy distance from Acadia National Park for day tripping.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Waterfront tranquility, access to nature, privacy and stunning views across the bay to Acadia National Park. This sort of deep water pristine shorefront, where you walk to the beach from your front yard, is an increasingly endangered species. Enjoy it while it lasts!
