Property Description

This wonderful property sits majestically at where the waters of Union Bay, Contention Cove, Union River and Pattern Bay all coalesce to provide an expansive and varied waterfront experience. The beachfront is excellent, the setting private and serene, and all is nearby to some of Maine’s most desired locations. It is but a short drive to the Bar Harbor and Acadia region, with easy access to Blue Hill, Ellsworth, and Deer Isle, Stonington and Castine, too! Located in the rural town of Surry, Contention Cove Cottage enjoys the peace and serenity of Surry’s rural community, yet with amenities and attractions close at hand. The surrounding neighborhood provides a charming mix of homes, as well as peaceful roadways to take an evening or morning jaunt. No land line, cell phone reception is fine. The home itself exudes old style, yet with an open spaciousness not usually seen in homes of this age.

 

A large and open living/dining area overlooks a large stone fireplace to one side, with large plate glass windows capturing the views over the bay to the other, as well as doorway opening to the wrap-around, covered porch. The kitchen is likewise spacious, with added sitting area just off to the side, all overlooking the back yard…..along with ocean views from the door which opens to the wrap-around porch. There is a spacious main level master bedroom and full bath, as well as 3 additional bedrooms and full bath on the second floor. For those looking for an old-style, oceanfront Maine Cottage with a convenient location to enjoy the amenities of both the Acadia and Blue Hill region, look no further!

Testimonials

Surry cottage

October 17, 2021

Loved the front porch overlooking the bay. Great location. The house was clean and had everything we need to make for a comfortable stay.

Beautiful waterfront stay

October 5, 2021

Wonderful Maine cottage right on on the water! Our stay was cozy and comfortable. Amenities were great including a gas log fireplace! Only difficulty was having to pack out our own garbage, but found a place right in Ellsworth to drop it off for a negligible fee. Will come again!

Peaceful and relaxing

October 2, 2021

We enjoyed coffee and cocktails on the front porch watching the seals fishing, a very peaceful and relaxing setting. The drive-in was a little scary, especially at night. It is a dirt road that narrows and twists into the woods… Until you emerge to the open, yet secluded seaside cottage. Lots of room, updated kitchen. Upstairs beds are ok… But, we very much enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay again.

The location of this property is outstanding the view BREATHTAKING!!

The house was as pictured it was clean but the floors turned socks and feet black we mopped the floor and had no other issues. Very limited towels we bought some at Walmart so everyone had at least 1 towel each.

Stunning Location

Fantastic Vacation

August 20, 2019

Fantastic vacation spot! The location is unbelievable, with spectacular views. The house is perfect! We had 5 people and fit comfortably. The kitchen has all you need to prepare a great meal. The house is stocked with games and books and amenities. But that view! Breathtaking!! We kayaked and hiked and hit all the local spots. Easy drive to Acadia. So relaxing. We had a tough time saying goodbye! We highly recommend a stay!
