Deer Isle cottage description
Sunshine House, offered by: Downeast Maine Vacation Rentals, Inc. Link to us below for more pictures and info!
Imagine 20 private wooded acres with 1,500 feet of shorefront, a large sand beach, a clam cove, a beautiful dock, two deep-water moorings, and expansive views overlooking the ocean and Lazy Gut Islands.
Now add a large, open lodge with comfortable seating area and kitchen, four individual cottages for sleeping or quiet relaxation, and the peaceful wooded setting, and you have Sunshine House! This amazing property is perfect for a group of eight to ten people and is a wonderful place for children. Each of the four cabins is attractively furnished and has its own charming view of woods and water. The 'children's cabin' has two twins pushed together as a king bed, plus a loft where a couple of older kids can have their own space.
The setting of this contemporary house is breathtaking, and the property is ideal for boaters. Your boat can be tied at the dock, where the water at low tide is deep enough to allow it to be left there. If you prefer or if a storm is brewing, there are two moorings as well. Bring your kayaks along (or rent them on the island). The dock has a specially built platform for easy access in and out of a kayak.
As an added bonus for renters with boats, the owner of Sunshine House also owns Big Coombs Island, a 25-acre bit of paradise just a bit south, toward Isle au Haut. This is one of the many forever-wild islands in Penobscot Bay. You may visit for an afternoon or camp there overnight.
Located at the end of the Sunshine Road near the internationally renowned Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Sunshine House is on the peaceful southern tip of Deer Isle. All the activities listed are available on our small island, with golf and tennis at the Island Country Club, and various shops, galleries, and restaurants scattered throughout Deer Isle and Stonington, with the small villages of Sunshine and Sunset on the eastern and western sides of the island, respectively.

Amazing views and setup
Amazing views and setup
This was definitely a trip of a lifetime! The main house had everything you needed although it would've been nice not to have to do dishes while on vacation. The separate cabins were perfect for the number of people we had in our group-8! We absolutely used the laundry facilities. The beach was amazing! Did I mention the views? Outstanding! The only thing that would've been nice to know was that the only bedroom in the main house was the loft upstairs. The only way to get there were stairs that were built into the wall in the kitchen. There was an ant infestation in the bathroom that connected to one of the cabins. The deck was a great place to fish and surrounding woods were so fascinating to explore. Beautiful flowers, mossy rocks and trees. We had a great time and would go back in a heartbeat.
