The Experience

There are 7 old farm buildings on this property. There are other projects I have in mind, such as a tent platform, decks, etc. etc.. It is a great property with beautiful vistas out to nearby Acadia National Park. I am over 70 years-old and never had any carpentry and/or handy-skills to begin with. My plate is full and someone with interest in staying in a beautiful coastal area who could contribute to the property would be most welcome.

My time at Surry Arts at the barn was amazing! Alan is a great host e a great person, he is kind and not only complied with everything that was agreed, but also helped me in every way that he could, he took time to show me his place and explain everything that we need to know before and after we arrived. We had meals together and he introduced me to his local friends and the cool places around, he also gave many rides to me. The place is beautiful, is really peaceful and quiet, there's many trails really close to his property and you can feel the nature even when you are working.
