The SpaceOur delightful, spacious, four-season cottage comfortably sleeps up to five people; there are two bedrooms, one on each floor of the house, both with queen-size beds. All bed linens are provided. There is also a separate loft area with a twin bed. Both bedrooms have closets and ample room for storage. The ground floor of our home features an open-concept dining area, living area, and kitchen, with french doors that let in lots of light. These open up to a large deck where guests can dine, grill, and relax. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, coffeemaker, refrigerator and microwave. There are three full bathrooms, one on the first floor, one on the second floor, and one in the basement. The basement and second floor bath have showers, and the first floor features a large, convenient bathtub. Towels, hairdryer, shampoo and soap provided. Free Wifi is available. The cottage is located on an acre of private land and is situated between a lush forest and an open meadow. We have a large and grassy front yard and back yard, as well as a deck and a patio area (with a grill) for enjoying the outdoors. Guest AccessOur cottage is just a quick walk to the shore and the forest, and a short drive to many local sites and activities. We recommend having a car at your disposal. Interaction with GuestsI or my associate will meet you upon arrival to welcome you, show you the cottage, and give a short orientation to the area. At times, as I live quite a distance from Surry, I will be unable to greet guests personally. In these instances, one of my dear friends and associates (a neighbor and long-time resident of Surry) will meet you and introduce you to our cottage. We are all happy to provide information about Surry, the surrounding towns, and other area attractions. Guests will have access to us via phone and email throughout the duration of their stay so that we can answer any questions and help with whatever you need. The NeighborhoodWe are located in beautiful and rural Surry, Maine, a quiet village on the shores of Morgan Bay. Surry is only a short 35 minute drive to Acadia National Park as well as historic Bar Harbor, a shopping, dining, and sight-seeing destination. If you prefer a more peaceful but equally scenic adventure, walk down the road to the beautiful Carter Nature Preserve, where you may relax on the beach, view wildlife, and hike miles of wooded and shoreline trails. Or, drive ten minutes south to visit the Blue Hill peninsula, Castine, Camden, or Belfast for panoramic vistas, historical sites, antiquing, beaches, and Maine coastal charm.

DAY 2 ON THE WATER Kayak, Sail, Dine --Kayak or sail in Morgan Bay in the morning, watch the tide for your right timing, out with the out- tide back in with the in-tide for maximum relaxation, or take a sail with our local expert sailor on his "Loki" sailboat around Blue Hill Bay for even more fabulous views of Acadia. Picnic on an island. For dinner dine in Blue Hill in the boatyard at the Boatyard Grill, the local Brewery, or the upscale Arborview. Oh, yes, Barncastle for woodfired pizza. DAY 3 THE BLUE HILL PENINSULA Art Galleries, Fishing village, Funky Opera House, Ferry Rides --The Blue Hill Peninsula is a favorite, with guests liking it even better than Acadia, but you decide. Stop at the Blue Hill Coop for your picnic lunch foods. Begin your Art Gallery tour in Blue Hill, driving on towards Deer Isle/Stonington. You'll come upon a Farmersmarket, most likely and lots of Art Galleries. Nature walks. Barred Island Preserve. Haystack. Possible ferry rides to Isle au Haut or Great Sprucehead.

Stay nearer Acadia, but my guess is that you'll want to come back to my quiet farmhouse. Bar Harbor is a bit touristy for an overnight. You can play there for the day, see all the sites, eat dinner in busy downtown Bar Harbor and come back to quiet Surry for the night. DAY 5 Lots of options. You'll want to come back down home next year, or not leave at all! A Repeat----Creative possibilities for your visit: Spacious bedroom with king size bed and enough space for yoga or morning stretches on the second floor, adjoining private sitting room with small refrigerator, microwave, hot teakettle for morning coffee or tea.

The whole second floor is yours-two bedrooms (one w/kingsize bed) (one with full size bed with twin floor futon available) (full futon couch is available in the sitting room as a pull-out) (cots are available). Two bedrooms with sitting room in between them for privacy. Private bath. Sitting room has couch and kitchen set up with plates, electric kettle, sm refrigerator, microwave. Interaction with GuestsI want your visit to be wonderful. I'm happy to make suggestions for your visit. If I'm out for a bit, I'll leave a note. Please let me know what time you'll arrive. If coming from the south and you have an extra hour, I suggest 95-295-Route 1 at the Brunswick exit. Route 1 passes through Wiscasset, Camden, and comes close to Brunswick, Bath, Rockport*, Belfast*. For lunch Chases Daily in Belfast or Waterfront in Camden Harbor. Take Route 90 to by-pass Rockland (although lovely Wyeth paintings at Farnsworth Museum). At the light at Route 90/Route 1 go straight through light to RockPORT. Wiggle your way around end of road left, right over bridge, right after bridge into town, DON't MISS IT. Right after town, pass Gallaway cows, right at cemetery brings you to Bayview Road taking you the back way into Camden. Read directions carefully. Fun! See the schooners in Camden. The NeighborhoodMorgan Bay is a close knit neighborhood focused around the head of the bay. Swimming, hiking on a series of nature trails, biking, kayaking. Lots to do without getting in your car again until you are ready to head home. Getting AroundA car is really necessary. If you do not have a car, you take a bus from Bangor (leaves Boston at 10am and then a bus to Ellsworth which leaves right after the Boston bus arrives) You'll then need a taxicab to my home. When you leave, taxi to Ellsworth which is 12 miles away from the Morgan House, where you'll catch a 3pm bus to Bangor. Other Things to NoteJust so you know the water is from a well so it is a bit rusty. We drink bottled water available for you. We have a country well so shortish showers are requested. Rust colored shower, sink, toilet-just so you know. Lovely Full Moon Garden filled with white flowers near the front door. If your visit is during the Full Moon you will be treated to the brillance that the full moon brings to white flowers.

                The SpaceWhether staying for a long weekend or an entire week our guests routinely report Bears' Den to provide one of their most treasured experiences away from home. Bears' Den is a bright, spacious, and airy home with a summer camp feel. While many of our regular guests find they rarely leave our property, our home serves as an excellent base for ventures to Acadia, Deer Isle, or many other points. Our home is not insulated or heated (other than two fireplaces). Some spring and fall days—and particularly nights—can be quite chilly in this part of Maine. Most of our guests find the need to bundle up in the morning and evening a small concession to experience the beauty and tranquility of this secluded lake setting. Three families can usually share our home fairly easily, especially if some kids share the 'bunk room.' We reserve the right to charge extra beyond 10—please inquire. Bedrooms: - Queen den - sleeps 2 with private fireplace - Queen and twin – sleeps 3, faces lake making it easy to hear loons - Queen, twin and bunk beds – sleeps 5, often used as a kids 'bunk' room - Queen and twin - separate private cottage - Linens for all beds - 3 comfortable daybeds - Room for air mattresses (not included) We have a well-appointed kitchen that is open to the dining and living spaces. The cooks and cleanup crew will feel at one with everyone else and with the with the lake. Cooking will be a joy Our pricing includes State tax. Guest AccessYou will have full access to our home and land. You may use our canoe, private dock & swim raft, and will share access to our tennis court with our neighboring property.

No matter what, I am a phone call away and I, family, or our property manager can usually come by within a few hours if you need support. The NeighborhoodBlueberry fields border the distant (inaudible) road. Homes are well separated by both distance and forest. Blue Hill, Bucksport, and Ellsworth are all roughly 15-20 minutes away. Acadia National Park and a Deer Isle are about 40 minutes away depending on driving conditions. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in the immediate area; having your own transportation is essential. Boston, Portland, and Bangor airports have all easily served our guests in the past. Other Things to NoteDepending on the weather and how the seasons shape up each year, our dock and raft may not be available in early spring or late fall. These are times when the lake can be less temperate for swimming anyway. If these amenities are important to you, please inquire before booking time after mid October or before mid May.
