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, ME, USA:
We love owning and protecting, and keeping in the family, a bit the the rapidly disappearing Maine coast line. It's a refuge, a serene delight, a piece of sanity amidst the fast track. We welcome the opportunity of sharing it with like-minded nature lovers.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Secluded, private with immediate deep water access, views across the bay to Acadia National Park.Perfect for sailing. You can anchor right out front. Ocean kayaks can be rented and dropped off right at your door.
