This unique, gorgeous 2 bedroom, 1 bath post and beam cottage is built right on the beach of the Peninsula 'Newbury Neck' in Surry and offers beautiful views of Surry Harbor, Union Bay and Acadia National Park. This cottage boasts maple hardwood floors, granite counter tops, maple cabinets, in-floor radiant heat and comfortable leather furnishings as well as updated appliances.

About Shawn Robinette

We moved to Maine in 1997 from Seattle. We own a coffee shop/bakery in Southwest Harbor by the name of Milagro Coffee & Espresso.

Shawn Robinette purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Shawn Robinette chose Acadia

The Acadia area of Maine is one of the prettiest areas in the country. Once you get here you will know immediately why we decided to settle here.

What makes this cottage unique

Staying at our unique beach cottage is like living on a houseboat but without the rocking motion. The cottage is built right on the beach. In fact at high tide the water comes all the way up to the seawall. Looking out across the bay is so peaceful and calming. The majority of our bookings at this cottage are from repeat customers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us stay here again. This is the most relaxing spot we have found. We can't wait to come back next year!

Great House with difficult stairs

  • 4 of 5

The house had beautiful views and was very comfortable. Our only concern was that the only access between floors was circular staircases. They were difficult to use between floors in the night since the only bathroom was not on the floors with bedrooms. It was difficult to get suitcases upstairs with the circular staircases as well.

We loved watching the sun rise over the water.

What a wonderful and relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The view was lovely and it was just so peaceful looking out at the water. We enjoyed the proximity to Bar Harbor and Acadia, but loved coming back "home" after our adventures. We got lobster several times from Perrys right down the road. So yummy! We enjoyed meeting Shawn and Brian at their coffee shop in Southwest Harbor. Again, very yummy! Would definitely recommend this property!

Wonderful house right on the water with great sunrises.

  • 5 of 5

The house, Watermark, is about 50 minutes from Acadia in a wonderfully very quiet location. Clean, well maintained, an easy floor plan, a highly workable kitchen and lots of windows, it is a great place to just sit and watch the waves. It is restful. We would like to return again in the future.

Beautiful location and well equipped property

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described. It is a great base for exploring Acadia. We also spent a whole day just enjoying the amenities of the property and chilling out by the beach. There is a bald eagle which patrols the beach and we saw a seal. Perrys lobster shack is a short walk away and is byo. We really enjoyed our stay, which was one of the most enjoyable accommodations of our three week holiday in USA. Shawn was prompt in responding to questions. When we arrived it was a nice touch to be left bagels, cream cheese and cinnamon rolls, from his bakery.
