Surry house description

Book this beautiful home as your base to explore Acadia National Park and all the surrounding beauty of small town, seaside Maine communities!

1860 Historic Home with Living Room with Dining Area, Entry Room, Kitchen, Two Queen Bedrooms, One Double Bedroom. Shower and claw foot tub. Three decks to enjoy or grill out on. Private entrance.

Two unit house, owners occupy other half of house and are here if you need us, but gone most days working on Mount Desert Island.

The house sits on a large yard with beautiful gardens. Plenty of room to stretch out. Private fenced in side yard devoted to you and your pet.

Original finish work includes white pine floors, stained glass windows and a comfortable antique claw foot tub.

House overlooks the ocean across the street and Downeast Maine's best kept secret is less than a mile down the road with a large, quiet, public and very dog friendly beach for beach combing, sun bathing, swimming, surfcasting, boating or for just enjoying the grand view of Acadia National Park's mountains.

Perry's Lobster Shack restaurant is right near the beach where you can bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy fresh Maine lobster on the pier overlooking beautiful views of harbor boats and Acadia National Park.

Rental property is adjacent to Blue Hill Heritage Trust Land scenic trails with Furth Wildlife Sanctuary and the Talalay Nature Sanctuary each having two miles of maintained trails. Just down the road is Carter Nature preserve which has .6 miles of trails along the shoreline. Blue Hill Mountain is nearby with 2.5 miles of trails up a scenic mountain with views of Blue Hill Bay, Acadia, and Camden Hills.

Surry and Blue Hill are just far enough away, but an easy drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, to get away from the crowds. Come back from a long day of sight seeing, hiking or biking on Acadia's 47 miles of carriage trails and relax on the front porch of this beautiful, historic home.

Couples rate: for parties of two or less, deduct $25 from daily rate.

A beautiful, family friendly, quiet, pebble sand public beach is located less than 1 mile from the property and offers free parking and pets are welcome.

                  The rental property is adjacent to Blue Hill Heritage Trust lands which offer miles of woodland and coastal hiking. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a short drive away. We are minutes away from the Blue Hill community where arts and fine dining abound. Less than 40 minutes to Mid-Coast Maine towns of Belfast and Camden. One hour from Bangor International Airport and 30 minutes to Bar Harbor International Airport. Miles of back roads, oceans vistas and quaint Downeast Maine small towns to explore.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Joseph and Rebecca have lived in Maine for seven years. We love Maine and will gladly share our knowledge of the area during a stay at our home. Joseph works for a non profit, The Downeast Salmon Federation or DSF, focusing on the restoration of endangered Gulf of Maine Atlantic salmon. Joseph is a field biologist who concentrates on habitat improvement and river stability. Joseph also produces homemade jams and BBQ sauces sold at his local stand. Rebecca is a landscape manager working on Mount Desert Island with a focus on native plants and flower gardens. The two of us love to garden. We have been growing large quantities of garlic and currently have thirty five varieties on the property. Please feel free to ask us any questions about the property. Our goal is to create a welcome environment for you to enjoy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Surry:
                  This property is a classic. Built in 1860, the house still holds many of its unique qualities of the past. Its curved plaster walls, stained glass windows and fine wood trim work welcome you. The three covered porches prompt you to relax outside and enjoy a glorious Maine sunset with your ocean view of Union River Bay. The property has a fenced in portion of yard that the pets of our guest are welcome to use.
