  • So welcoming in every way

    "We spent a week at NortherNest; my husband, our portuguese water dog and our two beagles! I'm not sure who enjoyed the 'nest' more; my husband and I, or the dogs! The moment we entered the 'nest', there were welcoming touches everywhere; from the water bowl adorned with dog biscuits, to the crisply made beds with lovely linens and bedcovers, to the freshly cut and arranged garden flowers throughout the house. Our stay was relaxing and peaceful beyond words. As some have already said, the pictures just don't fully account for the beautiful setting, the amazing beach, enclosed deck with access to the pup area, and proximity to Mt Desert Island and Acadia Nat'l Park. We explored all of the island and the park everyday. What a pleasure to have our beagles off leash enjoying time on the deck with us! We will definitely return!"

  • True Taste of Country

    "This was our first visit to this part of Maine, and we fell in love with the whole Mount Desert Island area but especially with Acadia. We enjoyed the view from Cadillac Mountain, but especially loved getting up close and personal with the ocean, at Thunder Hole and at the tide pools at Wonderland. We went on an awesome whale-watching tour out of Bar Harbor and enjoyed walking around, soaking up the touristy atmosphere of the town. We also made a trip to Fort Knox and the Penobscot Observatory, both of which were impressive. Since we were only in the area for 3 days, we spent most of our time out and about, but what time we did have at the house was great - it had everything we needed except drinking water, which was easily remedied. The property is beautiful and there isn't a neighbor in sight, which was nice. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any wildlife around the house, just a woodpecker and other birds. There's an extensive collection of books of all sorts in the front hall for your reading pleasure, along with games and a few toys. The house was a comfortable temperature for the most part; the fans came in handy for making the bedrooms comfortable for sleeping. The new refrigerator is freaking awesome, and it was so handy to have a washer and dryer on site. We also really appreciated having a cooler and some already frozen "blue ice" we could borrow. On the downside, the downstairs shower didn't have much water pressure (I didn't try the upstairs one), and the water tends to smell a bit . . . cottage-y . . . but no big deal. It was a bit inconvenient not to have cell phone service, but the homeowners have made sure there is a landline available. Wi-fi wassn't working great for us - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes not at all. Same with Netflix. Nothing that was a deal breaker, and we'd come back in a heartbeat to enjoy this taste of Maine country living and to be so conveniently located by Bar Harbor and Acadia."

  • 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!"

  • A wonderful getaway cottage

    "This house is great if you want peace and quiet, but yet it is close to area attractions. We have stayed here several times due to proximity to Acadia National Park and easy access to the coast to the north and south. We love the setting, on the water, and the peace and quiet, being set back and shrouded by trees. The house is spacious, comfortable, and well supplied with amenities for daily living. The wifi and cable tv are nice additions. We enjoyed watching wild turkeys stroll through the yard and seeing loons and herons on the water. With an outstanding view and comfortable beds, this place is hard to beat. Very comfortable."
