Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Property has been in my family since 1975 and I have intentions of living here permanently again in the future. In the meantime, we love sharing it with people who want to experience the beauty of a pristine coast, unplugged from the noise, technology, and responsibilities of daily life.

Why the Owner Chose Surry:
Precious to own a bit the the fast disappearing Maine coast line. A refuge, a bit of nature preserved, a piece of sanity amidst the fast track.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Secluded, private with immediate deep water access, views across the bay to Acadia National Park.
