About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8)

Our cottage is on pristine and peaceful Toddy Pond. There is an excellent view of the pond from the front porch which is 75 feet from the water and you will get excellent sunset views. There is enough room between us and the neighbor's cottages to allow for privacy.
The water access is one of the best on the pond. It is a sandy bottom and gradual- very safe for children. Most properties have steep, rocky or muddy access or from a dock.
There is also a float anchored out from shore which is great to swim to, sunbathe, and older children love to dive or jump off it.
We have 5 kayaks, two windsurfers, a rowboat for fishing, a and a canoe. We ask renters to sign a liability waiver if they use any of the boats. There are organic blueberries to pick mid summer in our fields along the road behind the cottage.

The front yard by the water has a nice area with comfortable chairs, portable fire pit, grill, picnic table and hammock.

The open floor plan of the cottage allows plenty of room for socializing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: My partner, Doris Groves, and I own a small veganic farm in Brooksville, Maine. If you want to see what that looks like, go to

Why the Owner Chose Surry, ME, USA:
My father purchased this property in 1946 because of the sandy water access and great sunset views. There was a small cabin on this property which was removed In 1992 when the new building was erected.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our renters have said they especially enjoyed kayaking on the pond and some liked fishing. Families with children have said that their favorite activity was going out to the island in front of the cottage, having a picnic lunch and jumping off a big rock there.
