Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + open loft with 2 twin beds; 1 Bath, Sleeps 6 people
About Al Treworgy
This property has been in our family for over 200 years. It was part of the adjoining properties and was both a working farm and the shore was used by the coastal schooner, "The Revenue" captained by Albert Treworgy.
Al Treworgy purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Al Treworgy chose Surry
We have maintained the cottage since we inherited it. Our children have spent many happy summers here. The area is beautiful and it has provided us with a lovely way to teach our kids to live simply and in an ecologically sustainable way. They fish, harvest mussels, clams, and they pick blueberries, raspberries and sometimes even cranberries. They have learned to live in the woods without destroying it. They now are learning sustainable forestry. Everything on a very small scale, but an education outside the classroom for everyone.
What makes this Cottage unique
Most visitors comment on how comfortable the beds are. Yes, we do use high end linens and down comforters, but the ocean breezes and the outdoor activities make sleeping a joy. Being up and ready for a whole new adventure tomorrow!

I stayed for two weeks and greatly enjoyed the cabin, the property and the larger neighborhood. Even after 2 weeks, I was still discovering thoughtful touches in the the cabin - walking stick, binoculars, a small but appreciated library etc. This is not a commercial space, but a private and personal one. I'll be back.
A slice of heaven!
The Almighty Struggle is anything but that! This little house on the water is a slice of heaven. We had the most amazing week spent here really just enjoying our family and our surrounding. The home is clean and comfortable. The view from the house over the water is incredible. We drank our morning coffee on the tree swing that rests by the shore. We made three trips to Acadia National Park, which is approximately 45 minutes away. We cannot wait to come back!
Relax and unwind!
Absolutely recommend! Quiet, relaxing and great views! Perfect little get away. Can’t wait to return!!
This was our second time staying here and it’s become one of our favorite places on this beautiful planet. We leave feeling connected, grounded, and relaxed. We can’t wait to return!
Amazing vacation! Nice house! Great waterfront! Beautiful nature!
We really enjoyed staying in the cottage. Perfect for one family. Very very clean and very convenient. You can find everything you might need. Nice modern kitchen. Spacious porch. Beautiful location. Waterfront - it takes a minute to get to the bay. A great place for swimming and kayaking. Just be careful as you go down to the water - it is not a stairscase, but just stones leading to the beach.Beautiful forest around the cottage. Lots of outdoor space for children to play. Peaceful. Private. Relaxing.Thank you very much!
Great location but aspects of house not refined
Lovely sunrise location on the beach however the house itself did not allow for privacy between rooms. The ceilings are unfinished which left a gap of several inches on the top of the walls not to mention the exposed electric wiring running in and out of rooms (!!). The TV and coffee maker did not work (however the DVD player did). We booked for a Sat-Sat rental (which the HomeAway website permitted and there was no visible indication that it was supposed to be Sun-Sun). Luckily we were able to arrive on the Sat. Again the quiet location down a gravel track was ideal with pretty views from the beach, however we expected a more "complete" house.
I am so sorry our cottage did not meet your expectations. The original part of the cottage was built in the 1920s the addition was added in the 1950s. It has always been a getaway cottage is never intended to be house . I hope you had a good experience in Maine overall and we would gladly welcome you back .
Pick blueberries from the fields, watch the stars right from the deck, swim off the ledges, hike the beach in front of the cottage, listen to waves splashing against the rocks, and loons calling in the morning; or take coastal scenic drives, visit local pottery studios, and nearby state parks with light houses; or visit art galleries and studios of nationally recognized artists living and working on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
