Beautiful home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

What lovely home! Comfortable, immaculate, exceptionally well furnished. Available were books, movies, ping pong. And much to do in the area with Schoodic Peninsula of Acadia Nat. Park the highlight. Many lovely towns and restaurants. All in all, a great week.

Property was modern, clean and very nice.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The property was clean, well kept and was as was described. We spent most of our time in Acadia National Park which was a little bit of a drive each day but all in all we had a great time. I would recommend this property as a quiet property with all necessary for a great stay in Maine.

Much Better then we expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time. We loved that the house was very secluded, quiet, very clean and had a great view. And the location is just right, nice and peaceful at the house and close enough to bar harbor for some good food and shopping. There are few good eateries that are close by also.

We ended up going to bar harbor almost every day. (we took the olley tour, acadadian boat tour a few times).The schoodic ferry from winter harbor to bar harbor was a fun ride also. And Dianne really helped out on where to go for what you looking to do. For us, I was in quest for eagles for photos and Dianne told me where they were. This vacation far exceeded my expectations and Dianne's place definitely helped with that.

Great home with a million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, well-appointed home with everything we needed for a wonderful vacation! Close to Acadia National Park, excellent restaurants, & local artists of all types. We enjoyed steaming our own lobsters from the Winter Harbor lobster co-op. Just the right blend of activity and relaxation... We are looking forward to coming back next summer.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Surchin's End. The cottage was all we had hoped for -- peaceful, spacious, comfortable, thoughtfully decorated and equipped, lovely. Just right for cooking, eating in, and planning our next adventure. A tranquil water and mountain view from the deck, Adirondack chairs near the water, interesting books and places to read and write, and wonderful artwork throughout made this a special place that felt like home. The location was quite convenient -- great for exploring all that the Schoodic area has to offer, but close enough to Bar Harbor and MDI for day trips and dinners. I especially recommend checking out the Frenchman's Bay Conservancy's map of short hikes and the Park Service's new bike/multi-use trails at Schoodic Woods. The Schoodic area is beautiful, quiet, and restorative. We hiked up Baker Hill, which has spectacular views of Frenchman's Bay, and saw only one other person. There were more things to see and do than we could cram into a week, and we hope to return.

Surchin's End

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at Surchin's End. The house had everything and more that we could possibly need. Both my husband and I are artists so the decor of original artwork, lovely linens, and tasteful accessories was so appreciated.

We harvested mussels, saw otter, beaver, porcupine, Eagles. Watched osprey soar and fish in the cove.

Dianne was great answering all of my inquires and did I mention the house was absolutely spotless!

Highly recommend Surchin's End!

Surchin’s End coastal retreat is in the town of Gouldsboro in Downeast Maine, just off the Schoodic Scenic Byway. Conveniently located 45 minutes from Bar Harbor, 15 minutes to the entrance of the Schoodic area of Acadia National Park, and 40 minutes from Blue Hill, Surchin’s End offers the vacationer easy access to two uniquely different, but equally beautiful, parts of Acadia National Park. This area provides abundant opportunities for biking, hiking, kayaking, swimming, sightseeing, eagle watching, wildlife and nature exploring, or just relaxing and enjoying the magnificence of the Maine coast.

Other Activities: kayaking, hiking, bird watching
