About Dee

Property has been in my family since 1975 and I have intentions of living here permanently again in the future. In the meantime, we love sharing it with people who want to experience the beauty of a pristine coast, unplugged from the noise, technology, and responsibilities of daily life.

Dee purchased this studio in 1975

Why Dee chose Surry

We love owning and protecting, and keeping in the family, a bit the the rapidly disappearing Maine coast line. It's a refuge, a serene delight, a piece of sanity amidst the fast track. We welcome the opportunity of sharing it with like-minded nature lovers.

What makes this studio unique

Secluded, private with immediate deep water access, views across the bay to Acadia National Park.Perfect for sailing. You can anchor right out front. Ocean kayaks can be rented and dropped off right at your door.

Lovely, secluded and charming

  • 5 of 5

It was a true getaway for us. The property is beautiful and in a great spot to explore Downeast from. I love how quaint and cozy the place is, and the decorations and furnishings are really nice and everything is functional! The steps to the secluded beach are great, we watched the sunrise from there, and Acadia is only an hour away. It is a truly great property!

Perfect getaway for a couple + dog

  • 5 of 5

Nice water views looking out to Acadia park (Cadillac mtn in distance). Cottage is stocked with everything you need. Neighboring cottage was closer than expected, but never an issue, very private.

Studio by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect, close for touring Acadia, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill and all the nearby towns and amazing art galleries! Some great restaurants to visit … Blaze in Bar Harbor, recommend the Fish Taco’s. Best dinner we had was at the studio, grill worked great ocean in the background, little table for two!

Loved being unplugged, listening to music, and a fire at sunrise on the shore watching the views of Acadia Park evolve with the sound of the loons in the background!

The cottage was well equipped with all needed, clean and cozy. Lovely windows to watch the stars or the sunrise the morning. Perfectly suitable for a couple looking to unwind, read a book or two, enjoy nature at its best.

Touring Acadia was a highlight of our trip. I recommend the Island Explorer bus, free, stops at all the highlights every half hour. Get off take a hike, catch another bus, go have lunch in Southeast Harbor, visit Otter Point hike back to Sand Beach; easy hike! Tour Schoodic Point. So much to see and do, enjoy a lobster on the way! Don’t forget to visit Nervous Nellie’s Art Gallery very different!

Dee and John thank you for sharing your little piece of peace! We loved it!

Lovely cottage by the sea.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Oceanfront Studio in Surry. The cottage is quite comfortable and well appointed. Lovely setting down a quiet drive. We didn't spend much time on the beach as we were intent upon exploring the area, but the cottage was a welcome respite from our busy lives.
