About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 5)
The comfortable 2BR 2BA apartment is private with its own outside entrances and deck. The first floor has a kitchen, living room, master bedroom & bath, and a deck with retractable awning and comfortable deck furniture. The second bedroom and bath, as well as the laundry room, are on the lower garden level, which is sunny and bright with large windows. The layout is ideal for two couples travelling together, or for a family desiring a little extra space.
Located on Newbury Neck, one of Maine's most beautiful peninsulas, this is an excellent place to enjoy the best of Maine. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are just 35 miles (45 minutes) away - close enough for an easy day trip for sightseeing and shopping - but far enough away to escape the crowds and cruise ships at the end of the day. We are 12 miles from the village of Blue Hill, known for its excellent restaurants, art galleries, summer concerts and a beautiful hiking trail to the top of Blue Hill Mountain.
We have more than 1000 feet of private beach on the property and are within walking distance (1.5 miles) of the public beach and Perry's Lobster Shack where in the summer one can sit outside on the dock and enjoy a traditional Maine lobster dinner.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

We are located on a scenic peninsula with beautiful views of Acadia National Park across the bay. To see a wider view of our location and the surrounding area, zoom out by clicking 4 times on the '-' sign on the Google Map above.
Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are just 35 miles (45 minutes) away by car - close enough for an easy day trip for sightseeing and shopping - but far enough away to escape the crowds and cruise ships at the end of the day. We are 12 miles from the village of Blue Hill, known for its excellent restaurants, art galleries, summer concerts and a beautiful hiking trail to the top of Blue Hill Mountain.
Our peninsula, called 'Newbury Neck', is a popular destination in Maine. Our property has 1000 feet of private beach accessible by a five-minute walk or by car down our private drive. The Newbury Neck Road is about 7 miles long (see Google Map above) and is a very pleasant bike ride through trees and open fields. The apartment faces east, so from the deck or living room you can watch a beautiful sun/moonrise over the mountains and bay.
We have about 10 acres of wild blueberry fields on the property. Depending on weather, the blueberries usually ripen in August. You are welcome to watch us harvest our berries or pick some yourselves if the fields are producing during your visit.
Fall foliage is always worth seeing. A walk in the woods or a drive through the countryside may offer glimpses of breathtaking colors. The leaves usually start changing color in mid-September and peak by mid-October.
Year Purchased: 1952
About the owner: We are quiet, retired professors who enjoy sailing, skiing, travelling and reading. We have travelled much of the world, but we love Maine and would not want to live anywhere else.
Why the Owner Chose Surry, ME, USA:
My parents bought the property in 1952. My father was an Air Force Officer so we lived all over the United States, but every summer we came to Maine. As children we loved our summers in Maine, and as adults we grew to love the other seasons as well (especially fall and winter!) My husband and I built our retirement home on the property in 2002 and added the apartment for family and friends in 2004. We began renting the apartment to the public in 2015 and have truly enjoyed sharing this beautiful place with guests from all over the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It is unusual on the east coast of the US to see mountains right next to the ocean, but Acadia National Park offers this unique scenery, and we have a wonderful view of this from our front porch. We love the quiet pace of Newbury Neck -- biking on the road, walking on our wooded trails, enjoying the beach, and simply soaking in the amazing views.
