  • Perfect Tranquil Retreat

    "This is truly a “tranquil retreat” in a beautiful setting. The house is comfortable and thoughtfully constructed. The high ceilings and the curved bank of windows facing the pond allows for a beautiful view and a feeling of being a part of the quite pine forest. The carved spiral staircase to the second floor is gorgeous and the attention to detail in the house is in sharp contrast to what is seen in most rental properties. I’m sure this is because the owner’s built the house without ever intending to rent it. I hope they continue to do so as we loved our stay and hope to return next year. We would recommend it without hesitation."

  • Very happy with our stay.

    "We were very happy with our visit. The cottage is in an excellent location to see Acadia and Bangor. Come for the lake scenery and peace and quiet."

  • Time Stood Still

    "My husband and I cherished our visit! The decorum and essence of the home were hospitable and inviting. It's hard to explain but it felt as if the sunrises over the ocean and the sounds of the water, along with the beauty of the surrounding woods and the solitude therein changed our sense of time. We adventured through the countrysides antiquing and light house hunting. We visited Acadia and spent a day hiking, which was probably my favorite experience! We savored blueberry pie, and admired the art and beauty of the Blue Hill area. We left Surry with some of the mundane of life washed away by the breathtaking beauty of Down East!"

  • Perfect Get Away From It All

    "I was looking for a quiet place to spend a week with my girls (12 and 15) that would be peaceful, fun, and close enough to Bar Harbor to visit but far enough to feel like we were getting away from it all. I really could not have found a more perfect place; John and Liz made us feel so welcomed it was like being in our own home, not a rental, right from the start. The house itself is really beautifully situated; the beach is right down a path out the back steps, the sun sparkles through the windows in the mornings, the stars sparkle at night and the waves, when it's windy, will put you to sleep. It's on a hushed country road with few cars; the quiet in the air is stunning, especially at night. We also fell in love with the dogs - especially Maddie, who we miss - it was like a fringe benefit! Everything we needed was there; bikes to ride and wood for the outdoor fire pit and even fresh eggs from the chickens. We stopped at Tradewinds in Blue Hill on the way for food - which I recommend - but the cottage has what you would need otherwise - towels and sheets and blankets and a kitchen stocked with the basics, pots and pans and utensils, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Pretty much whatever you need is there, making it a lot easier to unpack and unwind. Liz and John are great hosts, the house is sweet and cozy, and it was as perfect a week as I could have imagined. If you are trying to avoid the bustle of Bar Harbor but want to be close enough to get there for dinner or day trips (about 45 minutes), you can't do better. Liz also recommended a boat trip in Bass Harbor (Island Cruises) which was an absolute must, a great way to spend an afternoon. Thanks Liz and John for helping us make lifelong memories, we hope to come back!"
